Sherwood Cliffs (Glenreagh, N.S.W) is the realisation of a vision God gave John-Pierre and Honi Reifler. John-Pierre had been leading young people to the Lord for three years in the Coffs Harbour District. When Honi joined him in 1971 they felt God burdening them to provide a long-term place for these young people where they could grow spiritually and regrow physically and mentally. After their marriage, the Reiflers were led by God to work in Western Australia amongst the Aboriginal people for five years in practical preparation for the Farm. In 1977 God miraculously provided the present 52 ha. (130 acre) farm to operate as a rehabilitation centre.


We are not here to foster a gospel of “community living”, but a gospel of caring, compassion and love. Our family oriented program of rehabilitation is an expression of our real concern for people. Every year many people, some single, some married, spend a period of time at “Sherwood Cliffs” in this program. They come from many different backgrounds. Hidden, but not hiding, in this tranquil environment and in an atmosphere of love, honest work and practical Christianity, they have an opportunity to find real answers for their needs. While we recognise, and often use, the many avenues available for people in time of difficulty, we can finally only share the life we have found to be true. Jesus Christ the Son of God, and His power, is the one on whom the miracle of a restored life is founded.

1 thought on “Sherwood Cliffs (Glenreagh, N.S.W)”

  1. Hi. I’ve been reluctant in the past to seek any ongoing treatment for the multiple addictions, that have robbed the past 23 years of my life, and about to take it to 24. Words cannot explain how terribly disassociated, afraid and alone, I feel at this point in my life. After watching you Pastor John , and listening to your wife speak about what you felt God were calling u to do, and what you’ve both been doing there, nearly forty plus years togethet, at Sherwood Cliffs , has given me alot of renewed hope as well as inspiration to wanna get myself finally clean and drug free, even if it’s at the ripe old age of 40.. I hope I finally meet you both , I heard all about Sherwood Cliffs and what wonderful, God fearing people you both were, and how i were encouraged to seek refuge at the Cliffs, some four year ago ,from a wonderful uncle of mine, who only had good words to say about u both, and who’s really helped me , in my time of need, and when I’ve needed counselling or prayer. This lovely, uncle I’m talking about , is namely , Uncle Zyx Owen
