We are so looking forward to our Weekend Away
together at De Vere Beaumont Estate!

We have over 350 adults and children joining us over the weekend and we are praying for an amazing time as we gather together. 


Be Bold is the theme of our weekend.

Be Bold is what we can be in approaching God, because of Jesus.

Be Bold is what we are called to be as individuals who are Jesus’ disciples, knowing that God is with us wherever we go.

Be Bold is what we must be as a church that is wanting to see every life bearing fruit for Jesus.

It is great to have John and Ele Mumford, and Jonny Gumbel, as our main speakers. Our prayer is that through all that takes place over the weekend, each one of us will leave encouraged and built up in our relationship with God and with each other and emboldened in the mission that God has called us to.

We hope that this webpage will give you all the detail you require prior to the weekend.  On arrival, you will also receive your lanyard, which we ask that you wear all weekend. All other information will be on this site, so please refer here for specific details.
