Resolution 2018 is now open for booking.

17th – 18th September 2018

Resolution is Thrive’s annual retreat for youth ministers, children’s ministers and schools workers.

The aim is to be with like-minded people seeking God together…to inspire us for the year ahead. Youth ministry can be so full-on that it is essential that we make time to stop.

“Useful time ‘away’ from it all to refocus on God with good and clear teaching, support and guidance.”

“A really rewarding and enjoyable 24 hours! The teaching was fantastic and it had a good balance of teaching and the opportunity to be alone with God.”

“This was by far the best retreat I have been on and it is so affordable.”

“A very helpful, restful and spiritual retreat.”

(some feedback from previous Resolution participants)

Resolution is a spiritual retreat, lasting just over 24 hours, to give you a chance to get refreshed, re-energised for leadership and re-calibrate your life before God.

Resolution is primarily for church youth ministers, children & families ministers and schools workers. It’s called ‘Resolution’ for two reasons:

1.Many people make ‘New Year Resolutions’ each year, as they commit to making a more concerted effort to self-improvement for the year ahead.  Rather than self-improvement, Resolution will offer us space to seek God for his goals for our year ahead.

2. We talk about monitors and TVs having a resolution, defining how clear and detailed a picture is. Resolution will help us get a better perspective on what we do, why we do it and where God is wanting to lead us.

£70 per participant

Resolution is hosted by Andy Castle, Thrive’s CEO and Founder. Andy has been a youth minister for twenty years and loves being able to encourage and inspire others to work with the next generation. The retreat will recharge exhausted leaders, inspire hope for those who are lacking, and build resilience to last the long haul of leadership for all.

Come along to Resolution for a spiritual retreat which will combine the personal, professional and social all together in 24 hours or so.

Tuesday day ticket £30

Resolution 2018 will take place once again at The House of Bread, Shipston on Stour, and the cost for each participant is £70. Each participant will have their own private bedroom, the majority being ensuite. As a result, places for Resolution are strictly limited so book early to avoid missing out.

However, we realise that for some people staying overnight is not possible for various reasons. So we’ve created a special day ticket, where you come for just the Tuesday, 9.30-4pm, for £30. We hope this will enable all to come who want to.

Our next retreat takes place in September, with limited spaces as we want to keep the size of each retreat small. We don’t want  this to be like a conference, but a space to retreat, to connect with God and to hear his plans for you for the year ahead.

To book your place, you can book online below (using Paypal or a credit/debit card) or you can send a cheque payable to “Thrive Youth Ministries” to Thrive Youth Ministries, Whitnash Methodist Church, Murcott Road East, Leamington Spa CV31 2JJ or you can request an invoice. If you wish to pay by online bank transfer, contact us for more information.
