2019 Weekend Away



Getting away together is always a significant opportunity to rest, deepen relationships with each other and create extra space to connect with God. We want to create some opportunities to encourage, challenge and inspire each other on our journeys as we seek to build church communities in our different locations and contexts. 


The weekend will be a mixture of rest and relaxation, times of sharing stories and learning from each other, along with spaces to worship and be with God. The huge centre and grounds should give good opportunities to hide and get some quiet time as well as getting to know each a little better over food and games. 


The weekend kicks off on Friday 15th February with Dinner. We’ll be heading home after lunch on Sunday 17th. 


We’re heading to the beautiful Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick, Alfreton, DE55 1AU. Here are some interesting historical facts: built in the 1850s, it has hosted Christian events since 1910, except during WW2 when it was a prison that held the Germans and Italians. The infamous Franz Von Werra escaped from there. The escape tunnel can still be seen!

Costs & Booking

The venue is charging us £141 per adult. Children that are 6 years and above pay half price. Under 6s go free.

However the church, through its annual budget, plans to subsidise the cost. We are asking for £119 per adult and £49 for children over 6. Children under 6 still go free.

We don’t want anyone not to be able to join us because of money. If money is a barrier to you attending then please let someone on the leadership team know. The church community are able to help those who find it difficult to pay the full price.

However, if you are able to pay the full price of £141, or even more, then you are encouraged to do so. The extra money you give will go towards helping others attend. To book onto the weekend you need to complete the online booking form by Sunday, 11th November 2018.

Once you're booked on, you'll need to have paid the full amount by Friday, 15th December 2018, either in a one off payment or in 3 monthly instalments. Subsidies are available upon request.
