Weekend Away 2018

Wednesday 10th January Posted by Rich

Part of our gathering rhythm is to get away for a whole weekend at least once a year. We've found that carving out a weekend in a different space has been a brilliant opportunity to be family together, to have fun and to create space to encounter God in fresh ways. They have often been really significant times together, so unless you've got a wedding booked in, we'd love to see you there. 



The weekend will run from Friday 13th April until Sunday 15th. You'll be able to arrive at the venue from 5pm where food will be available and we'll then kick off the weekend with session one at 8.30pm. We'll be wrapping up and heading home after lunch on Sunday. 



We're heading to a brand new venue this time, Orchard Barn at Duvale Priory. Orchard Barn is a lovely cottage with good space to eat and hang out together. The rooms are cosy and there is plenty of outside space for the kids to run around. The address is Duvale Priory, Bamption, Tiverton, EX16 9EG. It's really easy to find and about a 45 min drive away, just past Tiverton.



The weekend will hopefuly be a nice mix of fun, relaxation and opportunities to encounter God. Of course, food and drink will feature heavily in out time together, making the most of the cottage's giant table. There will be space to read, play games or go for a wander. There will be four or five structered sessions over the weekend facilitated by our guest and friend Liz West. Liz is a trustee of the Luton Church, an Enneagram trainer and a good friend of the community. We'll be making the most of her skills of holding spaces and asking provoking questions to get us to reflect on God and our faith journys. 

There will also be loads to do for the kids - games, bear hunts and adventures a plenty. 



It would be really helpful to know who will be coming to the weekend so we can plan rooms and activities, so if you'd like to attend the weekend away please book on via this link. Simply complete the form and then set up payment. 

Booking closes 31st Jan, full payment will be needed by April 30th. 

Adults - £90
