It is eQuipping time again! For those who
attended previously, no introduction is needed.
Being eQuipped to face the new year with all its challenges - a wonderful opportunity.
eQuip brings together young and old. This
results in a rich time of sharing and learning. It is good to see so many sparkling eyes at the end!
This year we are hearing a message of hope - hope, not because reality is ignored, but rather: Hope, knowing full and well what the challenges are, and having tools to deal with them.
“Hope and a Future!”
Day 1: The Cause of our mess
Day 2: Look at the mess!
Day 3: Mess-age of hope!

The aim of the retreat is six fold:
• Bible Study - getting to know the Bible and it´s background better. How does the Bible speak to this topic?
• This year we will also give some tools for
leading a bible study back home.
• General Knowledge - getting current
information on the topic.
• Sharing with fellow Christians in small groups - hearing from others how they view issues, and sharing your own opinions, insights and concerns.
• Fellowship - an opportunity to get to know
people from all walks of life, enjoy each others company, afternoon outdoor activities, and evenings of fellowship, from laughter to
• Worship - time for singing, praying, silence.
• Time to relax - the program allows time for
relaxation, meditation and recreation.

The climate during that period can range from warm (above 30°) to cool and misty (12°) - so a range of clothing is necessary to cater for this spread.
There is ample playground for children as well as a half-Olympic size swimming pool, tennis courts and beautiful hiking or mountain biking opportunities.
