HOPE STAYZ Retreat is one of the most rewarding initiatives of Greater Sydney Conference’s WOmen’s Ministry Department. in partnership with Crosslands Youth and Convention Centre, we HOST AND LOVe DISADVANTAGED WOMEN AND THEIR CHILDREN FOR A 2-NIGHT/3-DAY retreat funded, supported and staffed by sydney adventist women.
The purpose of the Retreat is to love, treat and give hope to women in difficult circumstances in order to restore dignity and confidence, renew courage and self-worth.
The 3-day program includes – life skills workshops, relaxing and fun activities, a pamper session, a pop boutique and a kids club.
The children are fully catered for by a team of wonderful volunteers who run the Kids club for the duration of the stay allowing the women to be fully taken care of.
We have a total of 54 dedicated volunteers who generously give of themselves, their time and energy to make this all happen – some of them taking annual leave from the ordinary jobs.
HOPE STAYZ Retreat has become an annual event. A wonderful way to make a real difference!!
