Retirement – God’s Gift to Us!

20–24 April 2020 (Mon–Fri)

A week for those approaching retirement, recently retired or finding retirement challenging. Christine and Martin will focus on some of the people in the Bible and the lessons we can learn from them to maintain spiritual, bodily and emotional health in later years. During the week you will develop your own personal guidelines for a fruitful later life. Although not a financial retirement planning week there will be information available to help with this aspect of retirement.
