Event information

This retreat is from Friday the 16th of August 6:30 pm - Sunday the 18th of August 12:30 pm.

We have payment options and very limited scholarships available, so please do not let finances stand in your way of attending.

You can expect a fun, relaxed environment.

To get the most out of the retreat we offer main sessions with a mix of informative teaching by Matt and Belinda Stott, a beautiful time of worship music and a bit of fun with our MCs.

A range of optional workshops are available led by our team, who are passionate about healthy relationships. You choose what works for you!

Our desire is for you to walk away feeling absolutely looked after, so we provide top-notch meals, including a candle-lit dinner where you will be served by our hosting team, enjoy live music and have the opportunity for a dance afterwards.

To make sure you can maximise your time away together, we offer several fun dating opportunities; dancing, movies, our very own escape room, archery, rock climbing and of course there is plenty of opportunity to explore the beauty of Waikanae!

There are local reserves, gorgeous beaches, great cafés and local museums, check out further options here

Throughout the retreat we also run our own café with free barista-made coffee...yes FREE!

Our team is made up of caring individuals who have a passion for enriching marriages. Their aim is to both nurture and support couples, as well as be available for couples to meet with.

As a not for profit organisation with passion for being generous, we do not make any profit from our Marriage Retreats....our hope is that the retreats remain accessible to as many people as possible.

With this in mind, we have two levels of pricing for tickets available this year...

'True Cost' tickets for $330.00 per person / $660.00 per couple.

'El Rancho Sponsored' tickets for $230.00 per person / $460.00 per couple.

If your financial position means you are able to cover the True Cost tickets, we would greatly appreciate you choosing that option, as this supports our ability to offer the sponsored tickets.

If you are struggling financially, you are welcome to select the El Rancho Sponsored tickets (no questions asked).
