Things to Do
SIGHTSEEING IN MADRID CITY CENTER
Although Madrid is home to two world-famous football clubs, that’s not why we’re there. Our target is to GROW and CONNECT. One available option for connecting will be through exploring the city on Saturday after our morning session. We will have the freedom to tour the capital on our own, enjoy the well-manicured parks, visit a museum, shop, or simply sip coffee with new friends.
For all those interested in this opportunity, please book your seat on the bus when you register (cost is EUR 7). A bus will be available to pick us up in front of the hotel and drop us on the elegant boulevards of Madrid. The bus will take us (and our nick knacks) back to our hotel at a specific time from an established location. Get excited to connect!
You can check out some of the things to see and do while there on the Madrid tourist office website (there will NOT be an organised tour):
PRAYER ROOM: PRAYER IS POWERFUL
When you call out to me and come to me in prayer, I will hear your prayers. When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you. If you seek me with all your heart and soul, I will make myself available to you,’ says the Lord” (Jeremiah 29:12-14).
Prayer is the foundation for living a life with unshakable hope and peace no matter what the circumstances. We have set aside a comfortable quiet place for you to come and pray, to be alone with God or to pray with others. A sacred space for you to be in God’s presence, sitting in silence or engaging in self-guided prayer stations. A member of the prayer team will be available after every session to pray with you as well. The prayer room will also be open during the Free Time. Come to rest, request, receive and be refreshed.
In addition to the seminar room which will be devoted to prayer, we will have a second seminar room that we are designating the “Activities Room”. This is our ‘social’ room. It will be a place to meet with friends and to meet new friends. Here you will find a variety of activities to do from playing games to making a fabric covered bead necklace. We will have structured art coloring pages and bullet journaling. There should be something for everyone, even if it is just to come and talk and hang out. You are also invited to bring your own crafts (knitting, crochet, etc.) to work on at your leisure. We hope you will join us for a time of relaxation, recreation, and fellowship.
