As a church we try to get away for a 24 hour retreat 2 times a year. For the winter retreat we use a government facility for free and pay 1200 yen(about $12) for 3 meals that are provided.
We go sliding, play in the gym amd have 3 study/worship sessions. One of the church's all combined worship services of the year is held at the retreat place at the end. This year our theme was joy- it actually was enjoyable.
