Men’s Weekend

Fri 6 – Sun 8 September 2019

Enjoy a weekend break filled with excellent Bible teaching, stirring worship and hearty food

Come and enjoy a weekend break filled with faithful Bible teaching, stirring worship, encouraging fellowship and hearty food. That seems like a wonderful recipe for a worthwhile Men’s Weekend! There are great facilities for you to enjoy on your own or with your church group. You can participate in the full programme of activities we have lined up or you can grab a book and relax in our coffee shop. Whatever your choice you will be welcomed, encouraged and challenged. Weekends are valuable – this one will certainly be one well spent.

Teaching Topic: Behold the Baptist!
John the Baptist.  Quite a man.  Prophet, pioneer and puzzle.  Standing on the pivot of history, pointing a lost world to Jesus, paying the ultimate price.  A man of immense courage, intense integrity and the darkest of doubts.  Over four sessions  we’ll take a close look at the paradox of the Baptist: the fullest life possible is also the one that becomes less as Jesus becomes more.
