About the event

The Cultivate Winter Retreat is a four-day weekend designed to refresh young men and women in the Word of God and to bring them into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. The retreat will include a series of Bible sessions, special events, practical workshops, and small group discussions over the length of the weekend. For more information on the Cultivate Discipleship Programme, please click here. “Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,” (Hebrews 3:1 NKJV) “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:14-16 NKJV)

Our theme for the Cultivate Winter Retreat 2024 is Consider Jesus. As humans, we have needs that are deep and complex that this broken world cannot satisfy. When things don’t work out as we hoped or life becomes harder than expected, where do we turn? In these times in our lives, we are prone to revert back to our old way of thinking as it provides us a sense of belonging and security, but we forget from what we have been saved from. We have a default mode that doesn’t consider Jesus and acknowledge the truth that He is the solution for all our needs. In the detours and decisions of life, we need to be diligent to fix our attention on Jesus. We need more that what Jesus can give us, we need Jesus Himself! We will explore how the things that we find ourselves wishing we had and what constantly competes for our attention doesn’t satisfy completely. If we will choose to go deeper with Jesus; we will see, know and experience that He alone can meet the needs of our hearts. When we consider Jesus, our hearts will become soft to Him and His ways. Over the Winter Retreat, we will endeavour to encourage you to not revert back to your default mode, but rather to press into Jesus: to believe in His promises, to follow His commands and be obedient to what He is doing in your life in the present. We invite you to consider Jesus!
