Women’s Weekend Away

Women’s Weekend Away

Women – 16 years of age and over – are invited to the first Trinity Church Aldgate Women’s Weekend Away

5pm Friday 2nd August – 12pm Sunday 4th August.

Take a break from life’s usual responsibilities and experience the benefits of this weekend together.

Beginning with wood fire oven pizzas on Friday evening, all meals will be provided with plenty of time for conversation.

After a leisurely breakfast we’ll get together to laugh and learn something about each other, ourselves and God.

Lunch will be provided by Home Grain Bakery, McLaren Flat.

If the weather’s fine, we’ll walk there. If not, we’ll sit around the fire in the afternoon.

Bring a jigsaw puzzle or table game, if you have a favourite. Have as many cups of tea, coffee or hot chocolate as you like!

The ancient story of Queen Esther provides inspiration and encouragement as an ordinary girl found herself in extraordinary circumstances and chose to be brave. Banquets feature in Esther’s story and so we’ll also enjoy the pleasure of a catered Persian Feast on Saturday night.

Be refreshed. Be encouraged.
Come along!

The campsite will be open from 5pm on Friday. We hope you will be able to arrive by 6:30pm to get settled before we go out for dinner. If this won’t be possible please let us know so we can arrange to meet you later.
