Spring is coming...
Come and get refreshed at our prayer retreat!!
With a global pandemic and lockdowns, flooding, referendums and more around the world…this year has been pretty crazy. Even in NZ a lot has happened and life isn’t how it used to be. After all this stress and craziness, we felt a prayer retreat, where you can come, refocus, re-connect and be renewed was in order. Back at alert level 1, Holyground are finally able to run a camp/retreat. If you would like to be a part of this time of prayer and reflection, please come along this October.
Spaces are limited so get in quick... Hope to see you there!!
*Please note that by applying to attend camp you agree to follow hygiene precautions including regular handwashing, coughing into your elbow and social distancing where possible. You agree to follow guidance from camp staff regarding changes to usual rules and processes put in place to minimise infection spread and to enable contact tracing if required.
If you develop infectious symptoms (as listed in the form) during camp, these must be immediately notified to the first aid officer. Attendees who become unwell will be placed in isolation until they can be collected by a guardian (note camp staff will not provide transportation to unwell campers, and an emergency contact who is able to collect the camper at short notice must be contactable and available at all times during camp.)
Camp attendees who become unwell during or within 2 weeks of camp are strongly advised to get a Covid-19 test to ensure there has been no risk to other attendees.
**Be aware that if we move back into alert level 2 or higher, we will have to cancel the camp.
We will notify you if we make the call to cancel camp.
