Whether it’s slumming it with the men, living it up with the ladies, activities with the youth or fellowship with the young adults our away weekends are always a highlight.
Each June we put on a church family weekend at the beautiful Sizewell hall on the Suffolk coast. We use the main building and the camp site and make full use of all the facilities for a weekend that is a spiritual highlight for many and crucial for the church. People of all ages are blessed with a mix of guest leaders and our own speakers. So many lend a hand, use their gifts and get involved to be part of a weekend that helps so many in their relationship with God as well as building friendships in the church.
As well as the Church Family Away weekend sometimes the young adults spend a weekend together at a smaller venue in Suffolk, getting to grips with scripture, praying for each other, enjoying great food and a good time together. As with all our weekends we want to engage with the Holy Spirit, to be built up in our faith as well as grow together as we share our stories and pray for each other.
Church weekends away allow us simply to spend more time with each other and with God. So we value the opportunity to be open with each other and allow the Spirit of God to work.
We also run youth or children’s weekends or trips to Soul Survivor. Trips for social and spiritual benefit and blessing, or maybe ministry trips to a church in the UK, mainland Europe, or even further afield. Always a valuable investment.
