Parish Weekend Away 2022
We are so excited that we are all able to go away together as a Church Family. Sign up HERE.
This is an opportunity for us to come together as church to know God better and to know ourselves and each other better.
We are delighted to announce that our speaker for the weekend will be Canon John Bavington, Area Dean of Inner Bradford.
It’ll be the first time in five years we have all spent time away together as church so we expect it to be very special.
The weekend will be Friday 9th - Sunday 11th September 2022.
We have sole use of High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire for the weekend. This is just over sixty miles or so from Buckingham, about one and a half hour’s drive. It is set in attractive countryside including the Lea Valley Park (40,000 acres of parkland stretching down to London) , Broxbourne Woods, and the RSPB reserve at Rye Meads.
The broad theme of the weekend is the Holy Spirit. The core teaching will be from an invited speaker who will give a series of talks over several sessions throughout the weekend and there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and prayer. There will be separate, age-related, programmes for children and young people.
There will be a 24/7 prayer room available throughout the weekend. Saturday afternoon will be ‘free time’ with various activities and optional sessions available (please feel free to make suggestions) or a chance to explore the local surroundings and attractions. Saturday evening will be devoted to a social with entertainments.
