Every couple of years, the whole church goes away for a weekend. This year it is 6th – 8th July 2018. Book your place now online or pick up a form at the back of church.
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.
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 is all about finding God in the busyness of our lives and the person we will be welcoming to guide us through that topic will 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 is an occasion not to be missed!
There is the opportunity for those to stay in B&B’s should they wish to over the weekend and to dip in and out as day visitors. Claire (youth) has also created an opening for young people to attend even if their parents are not able to and should the house be full, we are also able to offer camping in the grounds.
Please come and join us for what will be amazing weekend… spent with our very wonderful church
family. Please also encourage other to join us too. Speak to Claire Harald for any details or information.
