I was persuaded to join the party of 23 for the weekend away to Grange-over-Sands this year. I was apprehensive as to what to expect and concerned whether my religious knowledge would be adequate to take part in venues and discussions. My fears were allayed as everyone was so friendly, relaxed and made me very welcome. The hotel was extremely comfortable and the food excellent.
We were given a theme for the weekend which was “Connecting”, and we split into groups and discussed the subject for 2 hours on the Saturday morning. On Sunday morning a service was held, led by the Rev. Ian Griffiths, which included Holy Communion.
The remainder of the time was free for everyone to pursue their own interests. We were entertained in the evenings with singing, sketches and games. A good time was had by all.
Many thanks to the organizers, transport providers and all who participated in making it a very enjoyable weekend. I shall look forward to repeating the experience next year.
