  • Book Pub --- A monthly discussion group that meets at Babajoon's in Westminster to discuss interesting and engaging works of (mostly) non-fiction. 
  • Contemplation & the Arts ​--- We host special contemplative experiences during the Advent and Lent seasons, as well as labyrinth walks, workshops, and other reflective experiences through the year. Our small chapel is available for use whenever we are open. We also host art-sharing nights and various art workshops and classes throughout the year, including four-week "Art Labs."
  • ​Dinner Church --- Sundays, 5-6:30 p.m. --- Sunday evenings are just one piece of our life together, but they're important to many in our community. We eat and sing and share communion together, celebrate milestones, wrestle with the Scriptures, and focus on spiritual formation. Each meal is hosted (with a gluten-free option). After our meal, there's a Refuge Kids program for kids between nursery- and elementary-school age.
  • #Dogchurch --- Periodic get-togethers for dogs and their owners at various dog parks in the area. Kids welcome!​
  • Healing & Recovery --- These have been part of The Refuge from the beginning! We currently have two open 12-Step groups, one every other Tuesday from 9-10 a.m., and one every other Friday night, 5:30-6:30 p.m. We also host other groups, workshops, and classes throughout the year. 
  • House of Refuge​ --- We've had several of these over the years, but currently have just one on Wednesday nights in Arvada. It's a smaller, open group that includes potluck dinner and spiritual conversations.
  • ​​Joshua Station --- Refuge volunteers serve dinner at a transformational housing ministry in downtown Denver on various Thursday nights throughout the year. We always welcome more help!
