Currently we are drafting the SGM Wellington/Kapiti programme for 2014. This will be included in the 2014 SGM National Calendar. You can view the current (2013) Calendar below.
This is an invitation to qualified and registered Spiritual Directors who subscribe to SGM's focus on the Christian Heritage of Contemplative Spirituality. If you would like your planned event/s for 2014 included in the Calendar, please send information to the SGM Wellington Planning Group via Terry Alve by 31 August 2013. Also you are welcomed to request that we provide a contemplative spirituality event for your local church or ministry unit.
It's around this time of the year annually that interested people are invited to apply to join the Spiritual Director's Formation Programme offered by Spiritual Growth Ministries Nationally. More info is available via the brochure below.
