A relaxed and intimate week of study, praise and fellowship in autumnal Shropshire.
The week is underpinned by two 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.
