Women’s Spiritual Retreat with Sharon Garlough Brown – PALMERSTON NORTH

24 May @ 9:00 am - 25 May @ 9:00 pm


Women’s Spiritual Retreat Weekends with Sharon Garlough Brown

Sharon Galough Brown author of the ‘Sensible Shoes’ series is coming to NZ and will be speaking at our 2 days women’s retreats in Auckland, Tauranga and Palmerston North.  Sharon is a Spiritual Director and Pastor and has written the Sensible Shoes novels, following the spiritual journey of four different women, in a beautiful and profound way that is connecting and nurturing women of all ages, stages and backgrounds globally.  She explores and unpacks spiritual practises that enrich spiritual formation and is bible based in all her teachings.  Her heart and love for God comes through strongly in everything she does.  The weekends would be excellent nurturing and replenishment time for those in ministry or who are in caring roles.


Our retreat time together will include time for the following:


Inspiring teaching by Sharon Garlough Brown

Personal and friend group reflection time

Creative engagement time

Connection time

Refreshment time

And much more…

EXPLORE – faith, personal spiritual journey, needs and hopes
