Restoring the gift of human dignity

Rachel’s Vineyard Ministries Perth Inc is a lay-led, independent, not-for-profit charity (ACNC ABN 82 450459698). We operate in Perth, Western Australia, and deliver healing retreats and programs from the Living Scripture Institute in the US, designed by American therapist and counsellor Dr Theresa Burke. These healing programs address post abortion grief and abuse trauma – sexual, physical, emotional, spiritual, clergy and other abuse.

We currently provide two programs:

  • Rachel’s Vineyard – a weekend retreat for post abortion healing
  • Grief to Grace – a five-day program for healing the wounds of abuse

Rachel’s Vineyard

A Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat is a team-led journey of spiritual healing. The weekend residential retreat offers a sanctuary in which to renew, rebuild and redeem broken hearts in a safe, supportive, confidential, and non-judgmental environment.

Since the mid-1990s, Rachel’s Vineyard weekends have helped thousands of men and women to express, release and reconcile the pain of an abortion experience – pain that was sometimes decades old – and to find hope and resolution.

If you are interested in attending the program, or want to be notified about future programs, please leave a voicemail message or text us on 0490 956 745, or email us at rachelsvineyardperthwa@gmail.com to discuss whether this program is right for you.

Previous retreats: Fri 13 – Sun 15 July 2018

Next Retreat: Fri 24 – Sun 26 May 2019

There is a small charge to attend the retreat – but please don’t let this be the only thing stopping you. We can be flexible with payment if you are in financial difficulty – contact us and we can go through the options with you.


Grief to Grace

Grief to Grace is an intensive, spiritually-based program ministering to adults who have suffered from the scourge of abuse, abandonment or neglect. This includes individuals who have been abused physically, sexually, emotionally or spiritually by spouses / partners, clergy, family members, and others. Although the Grief to Grace program comes from a Judeo-Christian point of view, we welcome people of any or no religious practice.

If you were abused by someone in authority in your Church, we share your outrage.  We will invite you to express your anger about what happened to you, because it is a righteous anger and we will witness it.  If your relationship with your Church was damaged by a wolf in sheep’s clothing, our hope is that you will rediscover the authentic face of Christ the Good Shepherd, a fellow victim who suffered as one who was innocent.

  • Grief to Grace is fully residential – Sunday afternoon-Friday morning stay.
  • The cost includes accommodation, all meals, retreat materials, after-care materials, and the presence of qualified specialist counsellors.
  • All rooms are single rooms.
  • Both men and women are welcome.
  • The retreat is team-led and is guided throughout, and includes rest and private time.
  • The retreat has a Judeo-Christian spiritual framework, but we welcome people of all faiths and none.
  • There is a chapel on the site with the Blessed Sacrament present, and a Catholic priest will be available for Mass and Reconciliation.

If you are interested in attending the program, or want to be notified about future programs, please leave a voicemail message or text us on 0490 956 745 or email us at g2gperthwa@gmail.com to discuss whether this program is right for you.

Next Retreat: Sunday 14 July (afternoon ) – Fri 19 July (morning) 2019

Grief to Grace offers credentialled staff, specially-trained clergy, trained lay volunteers, and the equivalent of 35-40 hours of specialised attention for your trauma, including group therapy. Because of this, there is a charge to attend the program that covers part (but not all) of the cost of delivery. We can be flexible with payment if you are in financial difficulty – contact us and we can go through the options with you.
