Join Us For A Retreat
with Alan Storey

Prayer and reflection on the scriptures,
the demands they make of us,
and the freedom they offer us.

What does kingdom living look like in our world in our time?

How can we be the people we’re called to be in these times of war, injustice, and climate emergency?  


This will be Alan’s second retreat with us, and we expect it to be life-changing!
