Church Day Away

Church Day Away

Saturday 16th May

Book here now!

What is it?

The day away is for everyone at St Martin's. We will be going to Foxhill Conference Centre, in the middle of the beautiful Cheshire countryside. It's a chance to go away together to learn more about God and get to know each other better. There will be teaching sessions with prayer and praise, and some free time in the afternoon. A two-course hot lunch will be provided, as well as light refreshments throughout the day. 

There will be three teaching sessions: two in the morning, and one in the afternoon. The sessions will be accessible to everyone, wherever you are in your journey of faith. There will also be opportunities to discuss the sessions in small groups and a question time to answer any questions you might have.
