Jesus said that His followers should live ‘in the world but not of the world’.
As exiles living in a foreign land we are called to be a generation that engages and transforms the culture we live in by carrying the presence of God.
Join us as we connect, build community and worship God together.
Andrew is our guest speaker for the weekend. He is Youth Ministry Development Officer for the Church of Ireland Youth Department, and his role includes strategic work with the 5 northern dioceses, resourcing churches, pastoral care of youth workers, training volunteers and helping to run Foundations – a programme for young adults.
Andrew is married to the lovely Jude and they have 2 daughters – Lucie who is coming 4 and Niamh who just turned 1. They love practicing hospitality at home, eating out, taking in an occasional gig and going to the park with their girls.
We will be staying at Newgrange Lodge, Donore. (90 minutes from Belfast). Formerly an old farmhouse, the Lodge was lovingly restored to provide the perfect base to venture out and explore the rich and historical attractions of the stunning Boyne Valley region, also known as Irelands Heritage capital.
Price includes all meals. Breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday with a BBQ on Saturday night. Supper/snacks will be available each evening.
Married couples will be offered double rooms on a first come, first served basis as there are a limited number available. Single accommodation is available in male/female dorms.
A limited number of family rooms are also available. If you would like to bring small children with you please book as soon as possible. Kids stay free but food is available at £15 per child for the weekend. Depending on demand, a crèche may be available during the Saturday morning session. Contact Hannah for more information.
