SUMMER RESIDENTIAL

Who: School Yrs 7+

Where: Varies

When: Varies

One of the highlights in the youth calendar is the annual summer residential.

The residential provides opportunities for all of the young people to spend some quality time together. Over meals, in worship, in fun-filled activities and in the quiet moments, the young people are provided with an opportunity to develop and deepen their friendships with each other, whilst exploring what God has in store for their lives.

Typically, the summer residential is 5-6 days long including travel and we try to keep costs as low as possible so that everyone can attend. Should the finance ever be an issue, please speak to a member of the team who can provide some options.
