WEEKEND AWAY 2022

You are invited!

A time away with the whole Churchcentral family...

Join with us


We are so excited to be able to go away together as the whole Churchcentral family this year.
It's all happening Friday 17th-Sunday 19th June 2022.
Bookings for this year are now OPEN!


All your info...

What’s the Weekend Away?! 
It’s a chance for the whole Churchcentral family to get away together; to refresh our vision and love for God; to have fun and food together, all in the beautiful rolling hills of Wales!
 
Why do we do it? 
Aside from the joys of getting away and enjoying time together, it’s also an important opportunity to live out the fact that we are still one Churchcentral family of churches! Yes, we are scattered across the city, but at the Weekend Away we will come together and express our togetherness. We'll remember we’re part of something bigger that God is doing. We’ll hear stories of what is happening across the churches. And we’ll spur one another on to what God has for us next. So, if you call a Churchcentral church home, we’d absolutely love you to be there!
 
When is it? 
It’s Friday 17th June (arrival from 4pm) to Sunday 19th June (leaving the site by 3pm).  
 
Where is it? 
It will be held at Cefn Lea where we have been before, a Christian conference centre in mid-Wales. It’s about a 90 minute drive from Birmingham.
 
What will we do? 
The weekend’s activities will start on the Friday evening and finish with lunch on Sunday. There will be meetings together with times of worship, encountering God together and preaching. There will also be planned social activities and time to spend with the church family. The site has many recreational facilities including a playground and some great walking opportunities.
 
How much is it and what is included? 
We want everyone to be able to come along and so have set the booking in prices as:
- £0 for children aged 2 and under
- £25 for children 3-18 and adults

This gets you booked in and covers your accommodation and food for the weekend.
 
We will then hold a gift day across the churches nearer the time, where people can give as they are able to towards the costs of the event.  To guide you as you consider giving, the overall costs per person of the weekend are:
3 – 7 year olds: £35
8 – 10 year olds: £50
11- 13 year olds: £75
14 years +: £105
 
How can I book?

If you are unsure please speak to your church leader.
 
What are the accommodation arrangements?
The set up at Cefn Lea is a combination of rooms within chalets, typically three rooms sharing a bathroom, lounge and kitchen area, as well as static caravans which have three bedrooms, a bathroom, lounge area and kitchen. We would love everyone to feel as comfortable as possible over the weekend so we try to enable people to share facilities with others they know well.
 
What about food?
All meals are provided by the centre, with dietary requirements catered for, and each room has access to a small kitchenette.
 
How do I get there?
The venue is about 90 minutes away by car. However we are aware that not everyone who wants to come can drive. There is a train station in nearby Newtown, and we would encourage people to offer lifts to others and we can provide some support in arranging transport.
 
What are the arrangements for children?
There will be children’s activities during the services for children aged 2.5-11years.  
We will also provide crèche space with toys for parents with children under the age of 2.5.
Youth activities will happen!
More details on these will follow closer to the event.
 
How do I find out more information?
