Christ Church Bishop's Ranch Retreat 2017
Have a relaxing weekend (June 16-18, 2017) with Christ Church at the Bishop's Ranch near Healdsburg and the Dry Creek Valley wine region.
The registration price includes lodging, meals (note you must pay separately for Friday night dinner), and activities.
Enjoy peaceful grounds, or participate in activities that include wine tasting, swimming, hiking, spiritual enrichment, music for all ages, happy hour reception, snacks, hot chocolate and s'mores.
We will be sharing our weekend with St Luke's, San Francisco, as last year.
The final agenda is to be determined, but it is roughly:
- Arrive afternoon or evening - note the traffic gets very busy on 101 around Petaluma at rush hour, so you may want to take the day off and come up via the coast or Sonoma wine country, or take half a day off (leave by 1:00 p.m.) and get through San Francisco and Marin County before the traffic slows (according to Google Maps if you leave Portola Valley at 2 pm the travel time can vary from 2 hours 20 minutes without traffic, to almost 4 hours with traffic - which if you stop means that it could take as long as 5 hours).
- You can have dinner at the Ranch or plan your own meal either en route or in Healdsburg
- Group discussion time in the morning, children's activities, e.g. choir
- Free time in the afternoon - hike, swim, visit wineries, etc.
- Wine and appetizers
- Apres Dinner Session
- Clear Room
- Chapel Service
