'I really, really enjoyed the weekend away. I have been on a fair few Church Weekends in the past and this was the best. A fantastic balance of inspired and practical teaching, good fun, fellowship, and enough down time but no time to be bored!! Lots of good, homespun, entertainment and it suited all ages.'
From the time we arrived at the Pioneer Centre at Cleobury Mortimer on Friday 28th April until we left on the following Monday, our biennial Church Weekend Away was filled with opportunities for a wide range of activities and events. Close to 100 of us gathered for some concentrated time together of teaching, praise and worship, games, crafts, competitions, a family quiz, sports and even the latest edition of Crendon's Got Talent on Saturday night.
'It's a great centre, the food was good and plentiful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the length of stay just right and the programme too.'
Our visiting speaker, Alex Harris, gave us several sessions of valuable teaching, and the discussion and feedback sessions were also really helpful.
'Alex really made the weekend.'
'Superb teaching, really inspirational and challenging. Also very down to earth and practical.'
Sprinkled throughout the weekend were:
Crystal Maze team games
a great country walk
a photo treasure hunt (don't ask!!)
sport for all ages
Saturday night's superb talent show
lots of opportunities for refreshment (of all types) and fellowship
'There was something for everyone and the chance to relax and chat to people that I had perhaps only seen in the distance!'
In addition there were some great worship times with a host of our talented musicians
'The praise and worship session was great and the whole weekend felt Holy Spirit-inspired with an energy in our prayers and praise.'
'We enjoyed the freedom of the worship and music - lovely set of musicians and nice to be spontaneous.'
With dedicated leaders for the children and young people their times together included learning and fun; it was a great opportunity for all ages to have a wonderful weekend.
'Most of all I loved the family atmosphere and appreciated the kindness and consideration shown to doddery me by everyone - including young children and teenagers. They are a credit to parents and youth workers!'
You missed it? What a shame....time to start planning to come to the next LCBC Weekend Away!
