Church Away Weekend
16 February - 18 February
The Church are organising a weekend away from 16 – 18 February 2018 to the beautiful 4-star Hothorpe Hall, which is just over an hour away in Leicestershire. This will be the third visit by our Church family; the last one was in 2013 when over hundred and fifty people enjoyed the break. We are planning a weekend of fellowship, faith, fun and food. The time together will enable us to engage, worship and grow together through times of discussion, play, study, eating and activities.
The weekend theme is: Building and nurturing a confident people of god
The Christian teaching will be led by Steve Walton and he says, “I’m greatly looking forward to spend the parish weekend with you all from Histon. Ali and I have very happy memories of our time belonging to the church, and I’m hoping to help you think, reflect and grow as Christians. I aim to guide us in learning how we can grow in our daily lives as a confident people of God, taking our inspiration from ideas in the Bible. This can be exciting and transformative, and I hope to avoid any sense of the Bible being difficult and forbidding to read, as we use it to teach us in this process of growing.”
Families will be catered for with activities for young people, children and there will be a crèche to assist parents with small children. Spouses/partners who don’t normally come to church are welcome. The teaching sessions are for those who wish to participate. Otherwise, you can just enjoy the fellowship and food.
Apart from a small booking fee of £5 there is no charge for the weekend away and all members of the church family are welcome. The PCC are underwriting any deficit from the weekend’s multi-thousand pound budget, but we would ask you to prayerfully consider any financial contribution you are able to make towards this excellent opportunity. The Church will be pleased to receive donations from anybody who wishes to help cover the cost and details of how you can gift-aid donations are available from the Church Office and are on the Stewardship page. Cheques should be made payable to “St Andrew’s Histon PCC” or BACS payments should be marked “Weekend Offering”.
Further details and booking forms will be available in church and from the Church Office from 5th November.
