RESTore To RUN: Workers Retreat 16- 21 August 2022
We all want to hear the words “Well done, good and faithful servant.” As workers in a foreign field, we can feel disheartened, disillusioned, and anxious in life and with the call. Our past, failures, frailties, and woundedness may make things even worse.
The heart of God wants us to know how loved we are, but the reality of the call can deafen His voice to this truth.
During the retreat, we want to rediscover the Father’s heart and His provision of rest to the areas of our brokenness, our needs, and His call.
If you’ve been running, outside of God’s rest and the race is weighing you down, you are welcome to apply below.
The program for the retreat includes some short teachings, creativity, fun, ministry, and rest. Our prayer for each is that they would rediscover, rest and walk in the heart of the Father.
His rest enables us to live out His call.
Special Retreats for Pastors & Leaders in Scotland
Pastors and leaders are very welcome to attend any of our normal Healing Retreats, which are held at all our centres, and many have given testimony to how much God has done in their life as a result. However, for many, an extended time away to both rest and receive confidential prayer ministry is needed. Operation Blairmore is designed for this very purpose.
Blairmore House, the home of Ellel Scotland, is a place of healing and restoration for pastors and leaders from around the world, especially those who are struggling in difficult personal situations, or those who have become exhausted in the battle and are desperately in need of rest and recuperation.
‘Operation Blairmore’ is a 10-12 day Retreat, which gives opportunity for complete rest, support, care and personal prayer ministry for those in key, full-time positions of leadership within a church, organisation or business.
These specially designed retreats are not intended merely as holiday breaks away from everyday life, but as time given to God for Him to work deeply in the lives of those who attend.
Set in the comfort and beauty of Blairmore House, Operation Blairmore retreats are not built around a structure of formal meetings. They are led by experienced Ellel leaders and simply offer space, time and care to facilitate God’s restoration for your whole being: body, soul and spirit.
Whether you are in need of personal restoration or are seeking the Lord for direction and renewed vision for your life and ministry, these specialised leaders’ retreats provide the necessary secure and loving environment.
To ensure a peaceful environment and an optimum opportunity for quiet reflection, for plenty of rest and times of personal prayer ministry (if required), these intimate retreats are limited to around twelve guests on each occasion.
We aim for excellence and we give the very best to you with a sincere desire to bless those who are serving the Lord and are in need of recuperation, so that they can be refreshed, restored and ready to return to their place in Kingdom service.
The True Value
The true value of these retreats far exceeds any financial outlay, as the many extraordinary testimonies show. In order to continue offering this precious resource to God’s people we ask for a subsidised contribution of £550 per person (£900 per couple), although the actual cost to the ministry is somewhat higher.
We anticipate that your sending church/fellowship/organisation or personal sponsors would meet this cost on your behalf, enabling you and them to benefit from this unique opportunity. However we would never want finance to become a restriction that might prevent someone attending an Operation Blairmore retreat, therefore a limited sponsorship fund is available. If needed, please request consideration for this at the time of your initial application.
Where and how is an application made?
All places on Operation Blairmore retreats are offered on a personal application basis and all applications are treated completely confidentially.
