A retreat programme is run throughout the year allowing each form in years 7,8,9 and 10 with its tutor to take part in a retreat. These days create a wonderful opportunity to build deeper relationships with God and each other. There are also residential retreats offered to students each year. Year 12 begins with a two day induction retreat and each year students are invited to take part in the Summer Camp and D Weekend run by the Sion Community .
During the summer term of 2013 and 2014 some members of the Maranatha worship choir spent a weekend with the Sion Community in Essex. This is what they had to say about the experience...............
“ At first I was not sure what it would be like but I was ready to give it a go. I got to spend my weekend with a wonderful group of people who would help me grow in my faith. I was really touched by the whole team and I think my relationship with God is now a lot stronger.” Alannah
“The best part was night prayer because we had a chance to unwind and ask God things in the silence of our hearts.” Kaila
“I found the Sion Community so caring and generous and I am so thankful they gave up their time for us. It was a great experience and I would love to go again.” Rebecca
