Weekend Away

The weekend away takes place from the evening of Friday 9th February until the afternoon of Sunday 11th February in Pilgrim Hall East Sussex.  The weekend away is always popular so, for this reason, we will give priority to those who have not been on this before!

Although the Life in the Spirit Seminar is free, there is a charge of £150 for the weekend away. This covers accommodation and all meals from supper on Friday through to lunch on Sunday. It also includes a contribution to the accompanying scripture prayer programme booklet and to help cover expenses for the priests who will minister to us at the weekend.

If you cannot afford the full amount, please let us know when you complete the online registration form. Alternatively, speak to one of the Service Team members in confidence to arrange a bursary. We do not want lack of money to stop anyone from attending. We know from previous experience that God will provide!

What if I cannot attend the weekend away?

You will get the most from the Life in the Spirit Seminar by coming on the weekend away but if you cannot come, you are still more than welcome to attend the Thursday evening sessions.

Can I come just for the weekend away?

No. The weekend away is designed to consolidate and build on the teaching from the Thursday evenings, the scripture prayer programme and the small group sharing over the weeks preceding it.
