It snowed over night again prior to our House Church weekend away. We had planned to leave very early to make the most of the day but as it happened we did not leave until midday when we knew that the main roads were clear
We found this very nice place to have lunch on the way
This cafe was part of a garden centre and more and more are popping up all over. One does not go to the garden centre just to buy plants any more but to have coffee, lunch or afternoon tea
In my next post I will be posting on an interesting local town and castle that we visited as we did not have to be at the conference centre until late afternoon
Early morning light the next day
For me the weekend was very much up at the top for weekends away, leaving aside the basic rooms and shared facilities.
There was a good balance of meeting time, sharing time, relaxing time and leisure time. At no time did I feel rushed or pressured as in many previous weekends that I have attended over the years. The atmosphere was great. There was a deepening of relationships as we spent quality time together.
There was a sense of freedom with opportunity for freedom in the Spirit. Everyone seemed relaxed. I think we all came away much more of a ‘family’ and with a greater understanding and appreciation of each other.
Food was great (4 star in fact), hosts were great and 24 hr access to dining room and drinks helpful.
To sum up – a great time of engaging in the Spirit and with each other while enjoying some great food together.
Saturday afternoon Alan and I drove to the coast and ascended Beachy Head so some good photos coming up
