Earlier in year we hosted our Mission for All Weekend where we wanted people of all ages and stages to be encouraged to get involved in mission wherever they are. We were delighted to see so many folk from St Mary’s and many other churches at the weekend in March and thought we would follow up the successful event with an opportunity to serve on Mission for anyone who felt stirred that they might like to engage with mission more.
We’re thrilled to be able to link up with Rev. Graeme Skinner and offer an opportunity to serve in Eden Valley in the Lake District.
A team from St Mary’s will be heading up to Eden Valley from Monday 22nd July – Thursday 25th July to engage with the local community, support the local churches and spend some time in study and fellowship together.
Whilst we’re there, we’ll be helping to run a Wild West Holiday Club over three days, with a BBQ for families on the final (Thursday) afternoon. We’ll get stuck into other local projects that might need hand, serving as we can where there is need in the community.
We’ll be staying with local families who have generously offered to host us. During the day we’ll be getting involved in various activties, including helping out at the Holiday Club, litter picking and community projects. In the evenings there will be time for personal study and reflection, opportunities to go on some gorgeous local walks. We will also be getting together every evening for studies and reflections lead by Nikki and Graeme.
We’ll post more information, including travel plans and costs, as we continue to converse with Graeme and put more concrete plans in place. If you’re interested in joining us or would like to know more, please contact Rachel Hsuan.
