Our morning congregation is unable to gather at Campden School on the first Sunday of October due to a prior booking in the school on that weekend.
So, in 2012 we decided to have a weekend away as a fellowship at the Lenchwood Christian Centre (near Evesham).
Not only did this give a great opportunity for the adults to gather, worship and reflect on Scripture, but also a wonderful opportunity for a Children’s Weekend Away too. As a growing church it is important to help relationships and friendships develop and deepen, something that’s hard to do just on Sundays, but helped by spending longer together over a weekend.
We decided not to have a residential time away, but within easy driving distance for the Saturday and Sunday. We could sleep in our own homes, and meet for great teaching, excellent food, worship and time to hang out in beautiful surroundings.
