Important News About The 2021 Arts, Recreation and Worship Conference

Right now we sit in the uncertainty of this global pandemic, but as people of faith, we know that nothing separates us from the Love of God. The time is coming when the weary world will gather together again to rejoice in our worship, work, and play.

The 2021 ARW Planning Team has decided to move forward with a predominantly virtual 3 day conference this May. Here are the options:

Virtual Only

Discounted — $80.50 (includes fees)
Full Price — $128 (includes fees)

A virtual option which has pre-recorded and live worship each day, virtual workshops, a networking time and an evening event each night. The cost for this option is $75 + fees, with an option to cover the real ​costs of bringing ARW to you ($128).

Assembly Inn Housing/Meals Addition — $402.46 (includes fees)

An option to add a housing and meals package to stay at Assembly Inn on May 2–6 (4 night stay, Sunday thru Thursday morning) for those who want a “get away”. These folks will still participate in the virtual workshop virtually – only the leadership and technology teams will be in Upper Anderson during worship or any of the evening events. The cost for this option is an additional $335 + fees. You must purchase a virtual package as well to have access to the classes, networking time and evening events.

Limited On-site Classes — $476.35 (includes fees)

A third option is to register for one of 4 limited on-site classes, stay at Assembly Inn on May 2–6 (4 night stay, Sunday thru Thursday morning). This includes 6 sessions (2 each day), and each class will be limited to 10 participants. The cost for this option is $435 + fees This includes housing, meals, and the onsite class material fees. Please note that if you opt for an on-site workshop, you are opting out of the online workshops as they will be occurring simultaneously. You will still be able to enjoy the virtual worship, networking time and evening events and will get full access to the workshop recordings and resources after the conference ends.

Montreat is offering Spring Sabbath Getaways in May – if you are interested in staying in Montreat longer you can get information HERE.

Registration will open one week later on March 17th at noon Eastern Time.


ARW is normally a week-long experiential opportunity amongst a community where all are welcome! The event focuses on recreation, worship, community, creativity and the arts. It is designed for those who want to deepen their creativity, broaden their leadership skills and experience personal spiritual renewal. In addition to whole group worship and recreation events, participants select from a wide range of unique courses. Our learning together provides space for us to share in community which includes all of God’s voices. Come join us as we acknowledge our weariness and rejoice in all that God has given us!
