A new CAUSE to celebrate ! 27 October 2014Posted by: Taranaki Retreat
Work is going well on the retreat and we have received some fantastic support. We are now looking to fundraise for the building of our chapel - a simple building on site for prayer and reflection, a beautiful space. We have launched a Cause called Kind Hands - 1024 handprints will cover the back and sides of the building, each one with someone's name written inside it. Click on the Cause tab to read more about the plan. Buy a handprint for a friend or a loved one! Help us build a healing space for others....
Water, the stuff of life, refreshes everyone 2 September 2014Posted by: Taranaki Retreat
Our first Taranaki Retreat Cause is to raise the funds needed to supply us with a beautiful water tank :) An awesome concrete one that will outlast all of us by many, many years and provide nourishment to thousands. Water which will be used everyday by all those using the Retreat - what could be a better symbol of simple caring than a pure litre of refreshing water? The tank will hold 25,000L of water - so a $10 donation brings the retreat a fantastic 60 litres of fresh, clean water!
