About the Course

Restoration Weeks are an insightful blend of teaching and ministry, designed to build you back up from a place of woundedness into renewal. Ellel Glyndley Manor runs four different Restoration Weeks every year, each having a different teaching theme woven in.

Rediscovering Identity

For many of us there is a very real struggle to fully know who we really are, maybe even carrying a sense of losing ourselves along life’s way and living in a state of confusion, frustration or just not quite able to settle with life, others or ourselves.

This course not only gives you the biblical understanding of identity and being a unique and personal creation of God’s, but also the time to explore your God-given identity in a safe and loving environment. Taking time to see how your true self may have been crushed, distorted or hidden, there will be times of creative expression and prayer ministry to allow God to reveal hidden depths of your personhood long-forgotten or never fully realised whilst casting off attributes wrongly assumed to be who you are.

The course will also develop the theme into understanding living within God’s purpose and plans for you as an individual and how to grow into fulfilling your unique mission, goal and destiny.

The Week's Format

Personal restoration requires a gentle process and takes time, so we run a week-long event focussed on taking you into a deeper relationship with God. It gives you the time and space to refocus on God and for Him to work in and through you. There is a way to move forward in your life and walk with God unhindered, and this week aims to build your faith in Him as your provider and father.

The first three days of the Restoration Week centres on teaching and times of fellowship. This time includes a unique experience via our Ellel Ministries creative workshops, which for many has been a wonderfully effective part of their inner healing process. After a free day for rest and assimilation of the teaching, the second half of the week is made up of shorter and more specific teaching sessions with the opportunity to receive personal ministry.

Allow Jesus to minister to places only He and the Holy Spirit can reach, to open the way for true healing. In Christ, we have full hope of His healing and here at Ellel Ministries we have received testimony after testimony of lives changed! God is faithful. Come expectant, to receive God’s love in your life over this special Restoration Week, available at our centre at Ellel Glyndley Manor.


Any Christian looking for answers to their brokenness and yearn inner healing.

For those looking for insight and personal ministry on the subject of our current topics.

Ideal if you have limited time to take away from family or work commitments.

Anyone looking for a follow on from a healing retreat (but not a requirement to join this course).

Your gentle and loving reflection of the acceptance and truths of who I am in Jesus has opened a window in my soul to let the sunshine (hope) in. I have bathed in this loving embrace (atmosphere) since I arrived and I feel the deep restoration work being done deep deep down.
