Retreat and renewal is important in ones life of being a follower of Jesus. Ballyards will be offering packages of directed and undirected retreats for individuals and groups. Spiritual Direction will also be available for individuals.

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly."

Matthew 11:28 (The Message)

You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.
