2023 Sherwood Cliffs (Glenreagh, N.S.W)

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. 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

  2. Hi John and Honi.
    I just want to thank you both for putting me on the road to recovery from my alcohol and drug addiction when I attended your loving Christian rehab way back in the 1990’s.
    You guys gave me a foundation in rebuilding my life by reintroducing God into my life and He gave me a way of escape from the unmanageable life style I had previously been living.
    I have been completely sober and drug free now for 26 years living a Christian life, with a loving Christian wife and God blessed us with three wonderful children, a good job, home ownership and the gift of eternal life.
    For those people out there who WANT help and are willing to allow John and Honi to help you find the only higher power possible to break addiction, which is the almighty power of God who will grant you freely the will power required. Then I fully recommend you call them immediately.
    Thanks John and Honi for playing your part in my recovery.
    Lots of Love
    Gavin Spicer
