Pastoral Respite
 

Brookside/Trinity Ministry

“The central purpose of this ministry is to provide rest and renewal for those who minister to others.”

Brookside Community House and Trinity House are two facilities that are dedicated to the spiritual growth of all who come to stay. They are primarily available for pastoral respite to pastors and their families, as well as lay people who are involved in ministry. For those who would like, here is an opportunity to meet with a member of the Spiritual Life staff for spiritual direction or pastoral support.

The central purpose of this ministry is to provide rest and renewal for those who minister to others. These beautiful facilities also serve single parents and those in need of short- term emergency housing. They are available from immediately after Labor Day to early June.

There is no fee for their use, but contributions to this outreach ministry are encouraged. Meals are provided. During the summer months, Brookside and Trinity are used to accommodate conference participants.

For more information or to book your reservation contact Rev. Garth Allen at 518-543-8833 ext. 261 or gallen@silverbay.org
