It really is for everyone. So whether you are single, married, have kids, don't have kids, student, pensioner, able-bodied or disabled, you are invited and will feel included.

"We had a brilliant time catching up with old friends and making new ones." (Jenny)

"A fantastic time was had by all." (Tom)

Running from Tuesday teatime until Friday lunchtime, you will get to stay and eat in Castlewellan Castle and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of its lake and mountain setting. Check out the venue's website: www.castlewellancastle.org

The daily programme offers space to chill out, rise to the challenge of a variety of fun activities, and consider God and His place in your life – all within everyone's comfort zone.

"Anyone that has never been, it's been so worth it. My kids are already planning next year!"  (Nichola)

"After days of activities and having fun we are now home having gained more confidence and had a few giggles along the way. Now to tackle the mountain of dirty clothes." (Aimee)

Each day there is a mix of time in which everyone will be together, as well as separate sessions for children, young people and adults.

Come and experience for yourself the amazing possibility that God always meant us to find our home in His one big family!

"The greatest thing we learned was that the church is family too and although we knew no-one initially, we made connections and felt very welcome."  (Nyree)
