Christian Education is the Bible-based, Holy Spirit-empowered Teaching-Learning process, through which the church community is guided, at every stage of the member’s life journey, to grow in the knowledge and love of God, and be discipled to obey His commandments and His ways.

The purpose is to present everyone mature in Christ (Col 1:28; Eph 4:13) so that God is glorified in every aspect of the Christian’s life. It encompasses more than Bible Knowledge as it is a holistic education of the individual that includes Christian living, Christian Spirituality and Leadership Growth & Development.

The Contemplative Prayer Retreat is a tailor-made retreat for personal time out, away from the hustle and bustle of life, in order to be alone with God. The time of silence and solitude is so that we can listen in to hear for ourselves, the God who dwells among us.

This retreat is a Beginners’ 3-day Teaching Retreat. Basic biblical teachings regarding Meditation, Prayer and Contemplation will be taught each day. A typical day begins with Morning Chapel, followed by personal reflection time in the morning and afternoon. The day will end with a corporate time of Recollection before bed. Retreat will conclude with Corporate Reflection and Communion.
