Good news! Just when you were wondering how to get through the deepest darkest dankest days of the year, St. Peters announces its Church Weekend away at Conwy on the glorious west coast of Wales, hijacking an entire luxury youth hostel for two days of relaxation, reflection, good company, exploration, creativity, prayer and worship.
We will take over the Youth Hostel at Conwy on the weekend of 8th-10th March.
We have sole use of the whole, fairly upmarket, youth hostel. We have individual rooms for those who want them, and there’s a lovely living space with views both sides of the town, the sea and the hills. The main focus of the weekend is social and creative, with plenty of free time and various projects for those who are interested. In previous years we’ve done painting, photography, knitting, mindfulness, cooking, music, walking, a ceilidh, and even salsa dancing. You can get out down to the town and harbour, up onto Conwy Mountain or even over to Llandudno – there’s plenty to do. There’s a spiritual theme to the weekend which links services and prayer together. If you like getting to know people there are plenty of opportunities. If you’d prefer to be reflective or get out and about that’s equally possible. People who go for the first time are sometimes unsure what to expect but always come back agreeing it was well worth it!
We’ve been to this venue several times before so if you want to find out more there are plenty of people at church who can tell you about it.
The weekend will be from early evening on Friday 8th of March until after lunch on Sunday 10th. Single, double, and family rooms can be provided. The weekend will be fully catered but some of that through our own efforts!
We normally organise to car-share where people need lifts to and from the weekend. The journey time is typically two hours each way except at rush hour.
The price per adult will be £125. Children 0-3 are free and 4-9’s will be about £35 each.
If the cost presents a problem do talk to us as subsidies are available.
Cheques are to be made payable to St Peters Church and given or sent to John Phillipson.
