Why bring home the message when you can be at home with the message

Retreating from Home – the better type of retreat.

Every year, SPTC runs a retreat for its student body, present and graduating with an intent of celebrating the passing of a successful year and coming together to remember their purpose of pursuit in theology. These retreats are usually conducted over the span of 3 days in an external location, the experience depending highly on a communal get-away. With social gathering limits in place, SPTC recognized that the 2020 retreat will have to be done in the homes of the attendees and the event needs to be communicated digitally.

How then can we create an experience on par with a physical retreat, and if not better?

By honing on the unique position of the personal home spaces of our attendees.

Some advantages of running a home retreat include: the time saved in needing to ‘get ready’, resources saved from needing to create an atmosphere, the ability to “pause” and tune in at anytime. To transition in to the retreat from home, we saw fit to create materials you would find fitting right at home.



Using illustrative style, we came alongside to narrate the message of SPTC’s theme “The Wounds Of Jesus” in the key visual and subsequently produced a journal to go along with a gift pack that would accompany the students as they tuned in during the retreat.


‘The wounds of Jesus’, taken from Isaiah 53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.”

At the end of 3 days, we felt that we delivered a retreat experience that is not limited by location, groups of people or time. This retreat can be revisited multiple times again should the attendees want to experience the retreat. In reutilising an accessible space that is 100% available at all times, SPTC’s attendees can seamlessly transition back into a reflective state even while being comfortable at home


“His scars are a physical proof that he conquered death as both God and man. Just as he showed Thomas the wound to reaffirm his faith, we too needed the reminder that we are healed and forgiven through his wounds.”
