Community Reflections
Each week as a community we reflect on some aspect of our shared spiritual journey. Last week Caroline Leys presented a series of devotions on the Reign of God. Here is a synopsis of what she said.
Guided Retreats
Orama will be offering a series of residential Guided Spiritual Retreats this year as part of its Making Room programme. The retreats are open to 5 participants and will be held at Orama Oasis in August and September. 

The retreats will conducted by well known Anglican priest and spiritual director Rev Caroline Leys. Further details are available here. If you are interested in attending any of these events please get in touch.
A Day with Brad Jersak
On Friday 20th July 2018 we are privileged to offer a day of workshops at Auckland's Holy Trinity Cathedral with renowned teacher and author Brad Jersak. Brad is author of the book A More Christlike God: A Beautiful Gospel and offers a refreshingly new understanding of a self-emptying God as revealed in Christ. He shows us how a different reading of the same text can lead us directly to a loving God who is embedded in life with us rather than a God who is a punishing judge that reigns from afar. Read more about this great opportunity here.
Heavens Above!
