Roots Down, Branches Out

14th-16th July 2017 at High Leigh, Hoddesdon, Hertforshire

Exploring the theme of “Going Deeper”

The Parish Weekend Away is a great opportunity to get to know each other. Whether you are new to Christ Church or have been coming for decades, whether you usually come to the 9am or 11am service, whether you are young or old, the weekend away has something for everybody. Everyone is welcome.

The weekend away will provide you with an opportunity to:

• Deepen your relationship with God – explore questions of faith in a friendly and open way, worship and pray together and discover more about God• Deepen friendships with each other – get to know people in the Christ Church community better, hear and share stories of our faith and have fun together.

• Deepen our ties with our local community – shape the vision for the church in Highbury and consider how you could contribute when you get back home
