Our program

When have you last stepped out of your daily routine to focus on relationship with God and friendships in Crossroads? In the fall of 2018 we want to offer you a retreat weekend from November 10 to 11 to do this in the beautiful green Veluwe. During the weekend we will take you on a journey to hear Gods voice, be inspired by speakers from every generation within Crossroads and take a next step in your walk of faith, accompanied by fellowship with other women and a fun time.

Our hope

The XRDS Women’s ministry wants to see women grow in their identity as women of God and in real connection with one another. This is why we organize several events and an annual retreat. Join us to reflect about your next step together with other women from Crossroads. This may mean entering a whole new level of engaging the world, personally and within the broader community of Crossroads. At this retreat, we want to offer you an environment of peace, inspiration and empowerment to get ready for your next step!


The retreat will be a fully serviced weekend at a luxurious location called Mennorode. Surrounded by lovely woods, Mennorode is the perfect peaceful place for resting your heart, relaxation, enjoying friendships and equipping your soul and spirit.
