Every couple of years as many of the church family as possible spend a weekend away together where we enjoy fun, fellowship and teaching. This summer we are returning to Sizewell Hall on the beautiful Suffolk coast.
It is an occasion for lots of fun and fellowship together, with plenty of family time and free space to go for walks along the beach or into the surrounding countryside.
We begin with
coffee and cake on arrival on the Friday evening and a brief act of
worship and a supper before bed.
There are usually children and youth
group leaders but Parents remain responsible for their children during
the weekend. The children tend to run quite freely around the house and
up and down the many stairways.
Saturday morning includes two short
teaching sessions by the Vicar (including Worship) and our theme this
year is “The Growing Church”.
The afternoon is given over as free time and a BBQ and a
Talent Show for the evening. Sunday begins with Holy Communion followed
by lunch and packing up.
It is a wonderful happy occasion enjoyed by all.
