The light shines in the darkness and the darkness will not overcome it. John 1:5


Advent is a season of mystery and longing. As the days grow colder and darker and the world often seems ever closer to the knife-edge of destruction and despair, we turn our faces towards the coming dawn: Jesus, light of nations, God’s gift of healing to a broken world. 

The people who walk in darkness
    will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness
    a light will shine.
Isaiah 9:1-2; Matthew 4:16

We would love for you to join us for 
An Advent Retreat in New York City 

When:  December 2nd, 9:30am - 1pm 

Where:  Coram Deo, Midtown Manhattan

                First Floor and Courtyard


Included: Participants all receive a retreat guide

Price:  $70 (Register by Nov. 19th with code EARLYBIRD for 10% off)

              Scholarships are available - please reach out if cost is an issue


A breakfast of bagels, coffee and fruit will be provided

Join us in Midtown Manhattan for a time of retreat in contemplation of Christ's coming and His promise that darkness will never overcome His light.  

This December, we are invited to enter into the suffering of the world from a place of hope - to look towards Jesus’ long-awaited arrival, with its promise to disrupt the powers of darkness.


Join the Stillness Collective in a time of quiet reflection, live ambient music, and immersion in Scripture and prayer as we contemplate the wonder of Christ’s birth. What did it mean then for people living in darkness to behold a great light? And what does it mean for us today? How does God offer to hold each of us as we hold together the “already, but not yet” in our everyday lives?
