Renewal Retreats are usually 6-7 people in pastoral ministry settings, committing to meet and journey together for a two-year cycle. Normally the cycle begins with a three-day retreat followed by two further, similar retreats, 12 months apart.
These annual retreats are interspersed with two 24-hour mini retreats, each one roughly halfway between the annual gatherings. Increasingly we are finding that flexibility to this cycle and the program is helpful and many groups are trying a variety of varied approaches.
