A private event for high capacity Christian donors who are seeking to enrich their lives and impact the Kingdom by leading, living and giving generously.
The 2-day retreat will be in a relaxed environment with like-minded people to explore Biblical teaching on giving and stewardship, hear stories of how others are being transformed by giving and find fresh peer encouragement and support. You will be inspired by guest speakers openly and honestly discussing the challenges, opportunities and joys of stewarding our resources.
One of our confirmed guest speakers is Jonathan Ruffer. Jonathan is a Christian philanthropist and investment manager. He founded in 1994 and now Chairs Ruffer LLP, a well-known investment manager. Jonathan has been involved with numerous charities, but is perhaps best known for his involvement in County Durham. In 2013 he donated a large sum to preserve Auckland Castle. This enabled the preservation of twelve paintings by the Spaniard Francisco de Zurbaran, which had been hanging in the castle since 1756. He also donated a further large sum to restore the palace and enable the creation of a museum on the history of Christianity and faith in Britain, expected to open in 2018.
Come and enjoy this opportunity to breathe, to be encouraged and to pray. You will leave with fresh heart and passion, together with fresh understanding and resolve to make the most of what God has put in your hands. We very much look forward to seeing you there.
"An inspiring, thought-provoking day that crystallized the importance and joy of Christian Giving."– Richard Borgonon
"It affirmed much of the thinking we had been doing for over 20 years, in a unique Christian environment where you could speak honestly with like-minded people about the subject of wealth, generosity, and greed! The Bible teaching was excellent, and the testimonies inspirational – achingly so." – Yolanda Ibbett
Please remember this event is not for fundraising.
