Bring a Friend Weekend

12–15 April 2019 (Fri–Mon)

Come away and unwind to chat and chill in the breath-taking location of Exmoor by the sea. This longer holiday weekend will offer walks, crafts, music, outdoor adventures and more. There will be opportunities to discuss our own journeys and engage more deeply with questions of faith, and to have the chance to enjoy time and space with friends, to relax and be refreshed. On the Saturday evening, enjoy comedy and magic with the wonderful Tom Eliott.

“Thank you for such an amazing weekend. I lost my mum and my brother recently, so it helped me a lot to feel closer to God.” — A recent guest
