Weekend Away

SCF is a Church Family and over the years we’ve enjoyed spending time away together.  Many people will remember the great time we had at The Quinta near Oswestry in 2019.  This year we’re looking forward to another great time together with lots of time for fun, relaxation, and connecting with members of the church family. 

Time together is important but our heart is also to experience Holy Spirit led worship as well as inspirational and challenging teaching.  We’re hugely blessed that Rachel Mathias (Sound of Wales) will be leading us in worship and that Simon Guillebaud (“Choose Life 365…”) as well as Martin Allen will be sharing what God has put on their hearts.  Alex Flanagan and his team will be back by popular request to lead and inspire our children and youth with lots of fun activity across the weekend..

Our heart is that every member of SCF is able to attend the church weekend this year.  If you’re concerned that finances could be a barrier then don’t worry – read on…
