Women’s Retreat: HOPE – A Songline for Life and Faith

Songlines are short, experiential retreats to help map our way through life with faith.

In aboriginal culture, songlines were navigation tracks to cross vast stretches of land. Indigenous people sang their way from one location to the next, the memory of the landscape embedded in the code of song and ritual.

Followers of the Way of Jesus cover a lot of ground in their lifetime. At times, the terrain is easy. At others, it’s tough going. October’s Songline Retreat is designed for younger working women – employed, volunteering or with school-age children (or any combination of these!). It explores the Jesus-way of hope.

Those at the event enjoyed time together in the Bible, time out for themselves, prayer with others, and an opportunity to make a Christmas Cake or jewellery.
