Equipped does just as it says! With lots of Bible teaching delivered each day by three great individuals we hope that by the end of your stay you will be encouraged in your faith as a Christian. As you return to study / work / life you need to be equipped to stand strong in your relationship with Jesus as well as having confidence and clarity to know how to share your faith with others in a helpful and sincere way. We have all been helped a little or a lot by others as we grow as Christians. This week continues that help from the Bible teaching sessions, the worship and the time to reflect on those truths. Our hope is that every guest will be clearer in understanding, stronger in their faith and better equipped to be a help to others after our time together.

Aside from the morning and evening bible teaching there will be a great range of activities to fill your week. Relax in the heated pool and sauna or enjoy the thrill of the waterslide! Our tennis courts, sports hall, coffee shop, quiet room, bookshop and grounds are all at your disposal. Our surrounding area is beautiful – Yorkshire villages, Lake District walks and Lancashire coastlines.
