Retreat Weekend – ‘Broken’

January 4, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - January 6, 2019 @ 2:30 pm




A retreat weekend for Christian Ladies who have lived through abuse. 

Isaiah 61 v1-3

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted;He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favourable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn in Zion, giving them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting, so they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified”

Intended for those who have been deeply wounded and long to be set free from the pain and chains of the past.


The retreat  is being supported by The Beacon Church Whitchurch Shropshire and is the vision of Nicky Porter, who herself has been set free from the pain and chains of the past that abuse caused in her own life. Nicky tells how her life was totally transformed when she was unexpectedly helped to overcome the devastating effects of sexual abuse during the early years of her life.

Watch Nicky’s story here ( Duration: 16:35 )
