As a church we think time away together is really important. It gives us a chance to grow as family, have a laugh and meet with Jesus. 

“God bought me out into a spacious place, he rescued me because he delighted in me”

Psalm 18:19

grow as family

We believe that a massive part of Church is being together as family. A weekend away is an amazing opportunity to meet new people, grow new friendships and strengthen and enjoy old ones.

have a laugh

What is really important to us as a church is not taking ourselves too seriously. Part of going away together is to just have some fun. We will laugh a lot and enjoy planned activities as well!

meet with Jesus

Going away gives us a break from everyday routines and challenges. We find that doing this helps us to spend time with God and encounter him in exciting and life-giving ways. There will be daily worship and teaching for adults and children to help us do this.


We know budgets are tight and we never want money to get in the way of you coming. So with that in mind, please just come and speak to Sam D-H if money is a concern. We have substantially subsidized our time away and will make sure everyone can come.

Adults: £66


(4-11) £30

(12-17) £45

Student: £50

kingdom gift

We are only charging the cost of staying at the venue. Everything else is being covered by The Groves Church. If you’d like to offer a gift towards the cost of the food, the speaker and the children’s work that would be most welcome. There is of course no pressure to do so.


We are delighted to have Thomas Dean as our speaker. Thomas leads Stenhouse Baptist Church in Edinburgh with his wife Claudia. Stenhouse is a church plant from Central Church. They have been Pastors there for six years
