Chellington youth weekend

At the end of September 21 young people from the parish aged between 10 and 17 spent the weekend at the Chellington Youth Centre in North Bedfordshire with Richard and Alison Andrews and Kaye and Ian Rogers.

Chellington with the parish was amazing once again this year.  We got up to lots of exciting things such as team games (which were very challenging) making our own dinner and getting to know the newcomers. It was good to see the people that I only see at Chellington and catching up with them. We carried on our tradition again this year and went for a walk around the local lake and going to the cafe for cake afterwards. We have a 10-15 minute worship each day to give us time to reflect on the events that have happened and to all come together in a quiet atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this weekend to any young people of the parish as its a good way to get to know other young members and have a fun weekend. Thank you again to Richard, Alison, Kaye and Ian for organizing a great weekend once again.

Parish quiet weekend

A relaxing weekend of reflection

The weekend of 8-10th July saw the annual Parish Quiet Weekend at Holland House in Worcester. Attendees enjoyed a mix of quiet reflection and prayer as well as an opportunity for fellowship with one another.


Holland House is a popular destination for the trip and an old haunt of some members of the clergy. With the combination of the beautiful surroundings, friendly staff and delicious food (especially the puddings!) it is easy to see why!!

Thought provoking addresses were led by Martin Hathaway who gave everyone something to ponder upon during quiet moments. Richard Andrews led many of the prayers and services, as well as a few of the croquet matches!

Everyone agreed that it proved a fantastic break and was well worth the trip.
