YOU are invited to this one-day retreat at ACP. We will welcome one another to abundant life by living it. We will listen to God, to our deepest selves, and to one another in Christ. We will remember, hear and tell stories that bring life. We will open to God, deepen our joy, honor our gifts and wounds in the peace that really does pass understanding.

Our speaker will be The Reverend Odette Lockwood-Stewart, of Berkeley, California, and former visiting ACP Pastor.

Participation cost is 20 euros. We offer a Kids' Retreat for moms who require childcare for 5 euros/family. We have scholarships available for those needing some assistance.
