reNEW - retreat for New England Writing

Renewed in knowledge after the image of Him. Colossians 3:10


reNEW is a retreat for New England Writing open to all beginning and seasoned writers and speakers who desire to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the world. At reNEW, we believe the core of our calling as writers and speakers is faithfulness to Christ, emphasizing the need to grow deep inwardly, which in turn affects our outward reach. Find out more about us here. For our first three retreats, we were known as “New England Christian Writers Retreat” – same community, just a new name. Our community exists that you might renew:

  • Your faith in Christ and commitment to deep spiritual growth — “after the image of Him.” (Colossians 3.10)
  • Your vision for sharing your unique story and message through writing and/or speaking.
  • Your relationships and encouragement of others in this creative community.
  • Your craft and skill in all areas of communication – “renewed in knowledge” (Colossians 3.10)
  • Your soul, through a deliberate time of retreating from ordinary life.
  • Your courage to share your words with a broken world.

In our fourth year, we are looking forward to reNEW 2017 at the lovely 48-acre Holy Family Retreat Center in West Hartford CT during the fall – October 6-8, 2017. Once again we are simplifying, your one cost is all-inclusive – 2 overnights (single room/hall bath), 6 meals (Friday supper – Sunday lunch) and all Tuition/Program. More details coming soon.
