The Boat Weekend Away

22th-24th March 2019

What is so special about a weekend away?

It’s a wonderful opportunity for the morning and afternoon Boats to come together and enjoy the amazing games, activities, teaching and live worship. And let’s not forget about the great food too!
Experience has taught us that these weekends away are very significant times in the spiritual journeys of our young people and great fun too!  They get to know each other better, make new friends and draw closer to God.
