  • Catalyst Homecoming- 2018
    13/04/2018 - 15/04/2018
    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

You are warmly invited to join us in Embercombe for our annual Catalyst Homecoming.

The theme for this year is our relationship to food: the simplest act, the greatest gift. The meaning of ‘companionship’ is to break bread together, but it is also an invitation to reach out across difference and welcome all voices to the table. 

This April we will gather as Catalyst alumni and prepare a feast together…

    • Co-create a weekend of celebration and creativity.
    • Reunite with fellow coursemates and alumni from across the past 8 years.
    • Join fireside tales of missions, adventures and projects.
    • Share skills, music, and ways to meet the issues affecting our world today.
    • Connect to the valley of Embercombe and renew your pledge for your life going forward.
    • Sing and dance, play and dream.

Join us!
