Weekend 2017


Church Weekend away at Denham Grove Hotel

Friday 31st March 2017 to Sunday 2nd April 2017

Advance Notice

Dear Church Family

Would you value the opportunity to get to know each other better by spending a weekend away in a hotel in a lovely rural location? Would you appreciate time away together for fellowship, fun and teaching whilst the young people enjoy their own teaching/activities?

So....check your diaries now! A weekend is booked in 2017 for Friday 31 March until Sunday 2 April after lunch.

It’s a while since we ventured to the Isle of Wight and we felt it was high time for a church get together again. Many of us have incredibly fond memories of that great weekend. Some of you might be wondering what a church weekend looks like so we thought it might be helpful to provisionally outline a timetable so you can get a feel for it in advance. (Printable version of this note can be found here)

This is a rough draft but will hopefully give you a little bit of an idea of what the weekend will look like. If you are thinking ‘this is all too busy for me’ rest assured there will be plenty of time to relax and we are not expecting everyone to do 50 laps of the pool or out-play Verna on the tennis court! There are plenty of spots to read, sit and chat, either in the tranquil gardens or in a comfortable lounge.
