Epworth Retreat Registration: May 5 - 7, 2023

Register Now for the Epworth 2023 All Church Retreat REGISTER TODAY! Epworth’s Annual All Church Retreat, nestled among the redwoods of the Monte Toyon retreat center in the Santa Cruz mountains, is back for the first time since 2019! Whether you have never been on an Epworth Retreat or you’ve been attending since before you can remember, there’s something for everyone, from our littlest to our elders. You can participate in as many of the organized activities as you like, or take the opportunity to read, hike, or chat with someone you’ve wanted to know better.

Friday dinner is on your own, but the wonderful folks at the Monte Toyon dining hall provide the rest of your meals for the weekend. Let us know if you have dietary needs and we'll pass along the information to the kitchen. The dining hall, meeting hall, and some of the lodging areas are accessible by wheelchair.

Here’s what to expect:

  • The weekend kicks off on Friday evening with a chance to become acquainted through games, music, and arts & crafts.

  • Saturday morning will include breakfast prepared & served in the communal dining hall and a community program/workshop for the adults, with childcare for the little ones.

  • After lunch, a whole variety of game will be available, including a ropes course. Or you could walk through the rhododendron gardens, prepare for the talent show, or just relax.

  • The afternoon is an especially fun time for young children and youth to wander from activity to activity with friends.

  • The evening begins with dinner and our renowned Talent Show which includes questionable and true talent, but it’s all fun with a lot of laughter. You can participate or not; every show needs an audience.

  • Sunday morning we come together for breakfast, worship and communion before departing.

Registration includes lodging for Friday and Saturday nights, all meals on Saturday and breakfast Sunday. It's $175 for ages 12 & up, $110 for 6-11, and $45 for 5 & under. Scholarships are available, and the family maximum registration is $600/family. Questions? Ask Margot Hanson at or 510-333-9583. REGISTER TODAY!
