Rise Retreats

Our Story

Rise Retreats creates an unhurried space to encounter stillness, to rest in God’s presence and experience times of refreshing and spiritual renewal. We offer a space to learn simple, practical ways to nourish the body and engage in spiritual practices – to pause, rest and retreat in the midst of daily life.

Our heart is to create opportunities for you to be with God and to reignite that spark for life, which can burn out when we are so busy and give so much without replenishing ourselves spiritually and physically.

Rise Retreats is an invitation to slow down, quieten the spirit, and tune in to the still, small voice of God. God whispers to us by name, reminding us who we are and who God is.

Come. Be still. Pray.

We are passionate about you

Each Rise Retreat and resource is created for you. Each detail is carefully curated by our team within these elements;


You are welcome here. You are loved. You may be in a season of struggle, or a season of joy; come and nurture and enrich your life with our community.


Rise Retreats offer times of feasting around the table and resting in comfortable accommodations. You will be nourished with a wholesome spread and cared for by an experienced team of hosts.

Spiritual Practices

Rise Retreats provides a unique opportunity to embrace both ancient and modern spiritual practices. We encourage an open approach that welcomes the Holy Spirit to speak to us through his word and our lived experiences.

Embodied Practice

Our Body and Spirit are deeply interconnected. We experience God through our senses and in our bodies. Our retreats offer an invitation to discover and recover a connected, whole-bodied spirituality.

Creative Arts + Journaling

In a Rise Retreat you will be guided to help discover and recover the fullness of who you are - as a reflection of our Creator God, as a child of the King, as a beautiful, unique creation. Discover the fullness of your voice through journaling and the creative arts.

Wellness + Fitness

You are made in the image of God. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. At a Rise Retreat you will be invited to participate in Christ Centred Mindfulness and Meditation practices, stretch and pilates inspired classes or walks.

We'd love to connect on social media.

A little love note from Joy

This retreat came just at the perfect time for me. It was just the stillness and time out I needed to replenish and come close to God as She came close to me.
