All you need to know about the weekend

What will be happening?

The weekend away is a brilliant opportunity to spend time together and get to know each other. We'll have a chance to deepen existing friendships and make some new ones, including people from congregations that we don't normally go to. We will have some bible teaching and have plenty of time to relax and enjoy each other's company and the surroundings.


In addition to the fantastic teaching from Steve Midgley, we'll have lots of time to have fun (whether for you that's running around or something more sedate!). We hope the weekend away will be a "once-every-two-year" opportunity.

What if I'm not an adult?

Don't worry! You'll have your own programme of activities!

  • there will be a creche area for the under-18 month olds
  • children aged 1.5-5 will have their own group run by Hannah Craig
  • children aged 6-11 will have their own groups run by Dan Adams (from Farnham Baptist Church)
  • HeadsUp! will be having their own sessions led by Tom Midgley

When will it be happening?

The weekend away will start on the evening of Friday 22nd February 2019 and run until just after lunch on Sunday 24th February.

Where will it be happening?

We are going to the Whitemoor Lakes Action Centre (don't panic - there are lots of comfy chairs if you don't feel like exerting yourself!) in Staffordshire. This is about 100 minutes by car from Headington. See it on Google maps here and find it on your satnav with this postcode: WS13 8QT.

Families will have one en-suite bedroom. Other people will share single-sex en-suite bedrooms. If lots of people come, then we may need to accommodate some people in a nearby Travelodge (at no extra cost to you and all meals would be provided at the main venue). We do not recommend this for families! Please indicate whether you would be happy to do this on the booking form.
