Charney Manor

Charney Manor 2017

In 2017 we move our summer holiday event to Charney Manor in Oxfordshire. Nestling below  the Chilterns among picturesque Oxfordshire villages, Charney Manor was built in the thirteenth century, but is now a modern, well-equipped conference centre.

The aim of the week is ministry, mission, and time to enjoy a rest and relaxing with Christian friends in a beautiful and quiet environment. Each morning we begin the day with Bible ministry from Derek French. Derek served as a pastor, and then as a Bible teacher and radio producer with GBM Radio. Each evening we will have mission presentations focussing on different parts of the world.

There are lots of places to visit in the afternoons, including nearby Buscot Park and Waterperry Gardens. (Organised outings are of course optional, and incur an additional charge.) There will also be a visit to the radio team at GBM Mission Centre in Abingdon.

This is an all-inclusive holiday, and all meals are of the highest standard. Charney Manor is renowned for its high quality, traditional home-cooked meals. Accommodation consists of single and twin bedrooms. Twin bedrooms must be booked on the basis of two people sharing. The majority of rooms are en-suite, and all come equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, towels, toiletries etc, and great views of the beautiful gardens!

Root Hill 2017

Root Hill Youth Camp is for 17 - 30 year olds who come together for a great Christian holiday set in the Surrey hills. The Bible and mission are central to our week together. The camp took place at Root Hill Farm, Dorking, Surrey, from Saturday 19 August until Saturday 26 August .

This year our main speaker was Ian Parry. Ian comes from Wales, and grew up in Cardiff. Until 2016 he was the pastor of the Bay Church in Cardiff, a multicultural church-plant on the Cardiff waterfront.

We had daily ministry each morning from Ian and others preached in the evenings. There were activities arranged for each day including laserquest; a trip to the beach; walking in the Surrey hills and football.

More information about the camp, helpers and the camp ethos or house rules can be found in the brochure.
