Alpha Weekend Retreat

Deepen your faith. Connect with others.


Alpha Holy Spirit Weekend


One of the key ingredients of the Alpha course is the weekend of the Holy Spirit. It’s a weekend away to relax, commune with others and connect with God. The main theme of this retreat is the person of the Holy Spirit: Who is the Holy Spirit? What does the Holy Spirit do, and how do we receive it? We also pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. It might be scary to “give up” a whole weekend but many participants have experienced profound benefits in this retreat weekend. This video can give you a better idea of what to expect . 

There are two retreat options—a women’s retreat on March 8-10 and a men’s retreat March 15-17. Both the women’s and men’s retreats start on Friday at 7 pm and end on Sunday at 2:30 pm (you stay there overnight). The cost of the retreat is $175. We have scholarships available (50% and 25% of the amount). We don’t want the financial cost to be an obstacle for you to go; if you need help, please do not hesitate to ask. You can pay either by check, or online by clicking here (please write ALPHA RETREAT in comments box so we can track your “donation”).

The location of both retreats is the Canby Grove Retreat Center. We’ll be staying at the Riverfront Lodge. Click here to learn more about the facilities. To register, please use the form below:
