Residency

Do you aspire to a lifestyle of work and prayer, seeking God in creation?

Would you like to run a retreat centre, offering hospitality to guests to help them encounter the God of renewal on the land?

We are looking for people to join our residential community of work and prayer, who can take on the day-to-day hosting of guests at Gembrook Retreat.

Black Cockatoo House
…and Louise

From January 2020, the community will be spread over two households, Black Cockatoo House onsite at the Retreat, and Blue Tongue House 2km down the road.

Blue Tongue House

Gembrook Retreat has 22 acres of land for our guests to seek spiritual renewal and healing. With the development of the Meeting House, an increasing number of visitors will be able to come and spend a day or several nights on the land.  Our greatest need is for new residents to host our guests and enable them to experience what this land has to offer.

The two households will form a community with rhythms of prayer, work and rest throughout the day and week, and regular communal meals.

If this sounds like you and you want to know more, please get in touch!
