Every couple of years, the whole church goes away for a weekend to Letton Hall.
Letton Hall is a weekend of deepening friendships, learning more about each other and exploring our faith together. It is a time where all ages can come together to chat, to walk, to go-kart, to play, to find space to knit or quilt and to be family.
More about 2018: When we were praying for the guidance as to what God would like us to take from the weekend, a verse was given to us from Psalm 46: ‘Be Still and Know that I am God’
Our theme for our weekend was all about finding God in the busyness of our lives and the person we welcomed to guide us through that topic was be Bishop John Pritchard. Bishop John says: ‘I’ve been incredibly fortunate in the variety of posts I’ve held – Birmingham curate, Diocesan Youth Officer, Taunton vicar, Cranmer Warden, Archdeacon of Canterbury, Bishop of Jarrow, Bishop of Oxford. I’ve felt imposter syndrome with each one! Maybe I missed my original vocation as a summer tram conductor in Blackpool. I’ve enjoyed writing a number of books, walking, cricket, photography, the arts, reading, travel (ideally if someone else is paying) and lots more. God has been very gracious.’ Bishop John is an author of many books, some titles include; How to Pray, Encountering the Beyond in Every Day and Living Faithfully. He brings with him a huge wealth and depth of knowledge and
experience. Being led by him for the weekend was an occasion not to be missed!
