Jesus regularly combined teaching with fellowship and food and we aim to do the same on our church weekend away to Quinta in June. If you have been on one of the St Mary’s weekend away before you will know what a great time we have. If you haven’t been, what are you waiting for? It’s a great chance to get to know some of the other church members better.
Normally we go away to the Hayes conference centre in Swanwick, Derbyshire, and we still have a booking to do this in 2020. However, we wanted to do something with a different feel, so we are going to Quinta. Many of us have fond memories of past holidays here. Quinta is a Christian conference centre set in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, near Oswestry, right on the English/Welsh boarder.
We have an exciting programme of things to do, there will be great teaching from Tim Davies, who is our very own Bekah’s dad! There will be outstanding food since Nick & Georgina Frost (who cooked for us at our Thanksgiving weekend meal) are organising the catering. There will be fun and games for all ages, a chance to worship our wonderful God together in a different setting. It can be really refreshing to get away from the usual things of daily life, spend some time with God and with God’s people.
We have tried to keep the cost as low as possible, so if you would like to join us but would struggle to afford to go, please speak in confidence to Rob, Stan or Jon as there are funds available to ensure anyone who wants to can go. The accommodation we have is primarily bunk rooms, but the centre have quite a bit of flexibility in how the rooms are set out. We plan to keep families together, unless the youngsters are allowed to share rooms! People will be able to share with friends if they wish, and we can set aside rooms for individuals. Please do ask if you have any questions, either speak to Jon, or email him firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office 0161 428 8050
Please also pray that God will bless us as a community of His people through this event.
Our next weekend is planned from: FRIDAY 21st June – SUNDAY 23rd JUNE 2020
