On the weekend of 27-29th October 2017, 30 of us from Kingham and Churchill Parishes went away to Lee Abbey in Devon.  We arrived on the Friday afternoon in glorious sunshine to tea and cake on the terrace overlooking the dramatic coastline.

P1010788The host speaker for the weekend was the Lee Abbey Chaplain, Barbara Carpenter who spoke on ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ based around the Wizard of Oz (which some of us got to watch in its entirety Saturday afternoon!)



We enjoyed an amazing welcome from the community, lovely food, stunning surroundings, teaching & quiet times with God, wonderful accommodation and facilities, great walks, fellowship, and for some even a swim in the sea and a zip wire activity!  The kids enjoyed their own age related sessions with archery, climbing and walks too.

A repeated comment from the weekend was that “it provided an excellent opportunity to get to know people from church better…”
