A place to restore the spirit

The modern world can be a challenging and difficult place for all of us. Life seems more complex and pressured with everyone busy and hurried. It is easy to become depleted physically and spiritually in these circumstances, and to lose touch with what’s important.
People have commented that Orama Oasis is one of those ‘thin places’ on Earth, where God seems extraordinarily close. Our remote location and beautiful natural surroundings make Orama an ideal setting in which to seek God and to be inspired – away from the distractions and noise of city life.
Orama is literally an oasis that can restore the spirit and give people from all walks of life a real break. Visitors can really relax here in a stunning seaside location, surrounded by peace and pastoral care, with everything including meals prepared for them. Guests have an opportunity to recharge and head back into life with a new focus and sense of well-being. Church leaders have found rest here. Others have found healing after a divorce or found the courage they need to face life’s challenges, renewed their faith or discovered new hope.

Orama Oasis functions as a living Christian community seeking to express in our individual and corporate lives a sustainable rhythm of prayer, worship, scriptural study and ministry. We make room for God and welcome His presence in our busy lives. We commit ourselves to love one another and live in an authentic expression of Christian faith. Christian and non-Christian visitors regularly join our community for days, weeks or months, to share in this compelling experience.




Orama Oasis is a dynamic Christian community based on Great Barrier Island with a vibrant history of restoring and equipping people for life’s journey. Every year more than 2500 visitors come to enjoy a holiday adventure, a spiritual retreat or a training school at Orama ... Read more
