What is YA Retreat?

YA Retreat is an opportunity for LIFE’s Young Adults to get away from the hustle of work and Uni for a few days as we soak up the last of summer and seek after a God encounter.

We wholeheartedly believe that there is something significant about stepping away from our ordinary, everyday lives at the beginning of the year to intentionally build great friendships and put ourselves in an environment where God can speak to us.

YA Retreat includes worship experiences, teaching, after-parties and just relaxing by the beach.



What is a Young Adult?

Our Young Adults community is made up of people aged 18+ and includes our Uni crew, young working adults and young families.
