Event Details

"Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”  Luke 18:17

Pray Thru Play is a creative, interactive, and contemplative Christian retreat. It integrates theatrical improvisation with imaginative prayer for a one-of-a-kind experience. Attendees participate in improv exercises and games, then move into individual quiet reflection with God. Together, participants practice embodying new ways to love and care for others, themselves and God.

Through the dual rhythm of play and prayer, participants will learn:

 

  • How to better Invite and Welcome both stranger and friend (Hebrews 13:2)
  • How Paying Attention can really pay off (Exodus 15:26)
  • The simple truth about Creativity (Genesis 1:27)
  • Saying “Yes!” and where it can take you (2 Corinthians 1:17-20)
  • The many subtle ways we say “No” and what we miss (Matthew 8:19-22)
  • How to Work Together Harmoniously as a group (1 John 3:11)
  • The power of Telling a Good Story (Psalm 66:16)

No previous improv or acting experience is required. Come simply with a willing heart, comfortable clothes and a sense of adventure!

Space is limited, so sign up soon.

Please note: due to the small size of the retreat centre, some rooms may be shared. (Most rooms have 2 queen size beds.) Please feel free to request a roommate. 

The price includes all retreat materials, lodging, linens and 5 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner on Wed, breakfast and lunch on Thu.)
