Grace Church/Emmanuel Weekend Away 2020

Here are the final details for our weekend away…
Dates: Friday 28th February – Sunday 1st March 2020
Venue: Hill House, Otterhampton, Somerset. TA5 2PT

Bedding etc.

Bedding is provided but personal use towels are not. Please make sure you bring your own.

Dinner on the first night
Dinner is served at 6pm. If you are arriving late on the first evening and have requested dinner, please could you let Katy know on It will then be kept for you to enjoy on your arrival.

The centre have asked that we don’t wear outdoor shoes indoors. So please come armed (?) with indoor shoes/slippers.

Washing Up
Just to forewarn you that whilst catering is provided, we have to do our own washing up. We are not planning on making out a rota for this but please be prepared, if you can, to be useful at some point over the weekend.

There have been reports of roadworks on one stretch of the A39 in Bridgwater this week overnight from 7pm, but this is scheduled to be finished by Friday. It just might be worth checking your route before you set off.

The theme of the teaching will be Jesus The Shepherd. Starting in Psalm 23 we will go on to look at how The Shepherd helps us understand who Jesus is and how that affects us.

For those who like to know lots of detail, below is a timetable for the weekend.
Please note that Meeting 3, Saturday evening, will consist of a shorter talk from Phil Hair followed by an opportunity for us to split into our two church groups (Emmanuel and Hilton) to focus on matters particularly relevant to each.

Please continue to pray for our time together to be encouraging and fruitful and for the word of God to do its work in, among and through us.

Look forward to seeing you all there.
