The week is underpinned by two or three main series of formal studies, with one or two additional standalone studies.
Informal group sessions for discussion and collaboration, sometimes practical (e.g. we've previously plotted timelines and charted maps).
The opportunity to start each day by discussing and reflecting on the daily readings.
Scheduled and unscheduled opportunities to worship our Father through singing and playing hymns and other music.
An evening outdoors around a fire with hymn singing, marshmallows and excited children!
Time to recharge and enjoy each other's company or an activity - maybe a ramble, some sport or music, or simply having a natter with a cuppa and slice of cake.
Lessons and activities for the children during each of the main sessions, with a short presentation to the adults at the end of the week.
A key value of the week is the feeling of togetherness, with young, old, families, couples and individuals enjoying each other's company throughout.
Other activities throughout the week include a table tennis tournament, use of the sports hall and at least one indoor or outdoor group activity.
The week begins on Monday morning and ends at Friday lunchtime. Private en-suite bedrooms with bedding (no towels) and all meals provided. We have exclusive use of a private wing (shared dining and facilities).
Day visits are possible but must be booked and there is a charge to cover costs, including meals. Part-week places may also be available (depending on demand), and unaccompanied older children are welcome to attend - please enquire.
A price cap applies to families with children 16 or younger. Additional financial assistance can be discussed discreetly.
Places are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis. Bookings will be confirmed as soon as possible, and a deposit of £20 per person will be payable in due course.
Whilst it is anticipated that COVID-19 guidelines will allow the event to proceed, it is possible some restrictions may remain or re-emerge, and arrangements may need to change accordingly. If we have to cancel the event due to such restrictions, all booked attendees will be contacted with the option to roll their booking over to 2022, or receive a refund.
