Estate Working Party

28 Sep–2 Oct 2020 (Mon–Fri)

If you’re fit and able, we’d love you to join our team doing practical tasks on our stunning estate this week. As a bonus you get a reduced rate and the afternoons and evenings for a satisfying rest. Please bring suitable clothing including good footwear and waterproofs. If you are unsure whether you could manage this sort of work, please phone before booking.

Wow! From the first night, God met me with amazing power and love.
