Sponsorship for Retreat Participants

The costs associated with attending a weekend Retreat are kept to a minimum and Retreat Participants are usually able to meet the costs involved.

For some, however, the knowledge that someone else is prepared to make a contribution towards their Retreat expenses is deeply reassuring.  It may even make the difference between someone being able to attend a Retreat or not.

If you or an organisation you are associated with, would like to discuss how you might contribute to the development of the Rachel’s Vineyard programme or if you would like to sponsor a Retreat Participant, please contact us.

Funding for Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats

The Rachel’s Vineyard Team would welcome your support whether it is to help sponsor a participant on a Retreat weekend, to help as part of a volunteer team or as a Prayer Companion for this work.

The Retreat Team includes counselling professionals, experienced facilitators and volunteer supporters who each commit to a programme of on-going team formation and post-abortion training.  The Team is able to minister to those affected by abortion through your financial contributions and prayerful support.

You can help others experience healing after an abortion by:

  • joining the Prayer Network (email us and we will contact you)
  • becoming part of the Volunteer Network in your local area
  • making a donation directly to Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats.

Rachel’s Vineyard Ministries is a non-profit organisation.
