Parish weekend away – a great success !

Everyone who went to the church weekend away at Scargill House near Kettlewell in the Yorkshire Dales had a wonderful time.

Scargill Christian community were very warm and  welcoming. They put on fun activities for the children; who thoroughly enjoyed themselves; and ran a range of thought provoking workshops  around ‘The journey to Emmaus’ for the rest of us. There was time to wander the beautiful gardens, go for exhilarating walks or just sit, relax and watch the great variety of birds that came to the bird feeders.

It was lovely to see that the full cross – section of our church community was represented –  little Aidan at just 2 weeks old, young families as well  as some of our older members of the congregation. It was great to spend quality time talking to each other and getting to know our ‘fellow church- goes’ better.

The weekend culminated in an all inclusive quite informal Sunday Service followed by lunch!

The setting of Scargill House and the lovely weather helped to make the weekend special.

A big thank you to all those involved in organising the event.
