PARISH WEEKEND REPORT
St Nicholas holds a parish weekend away, on alternate years, at Rydal Hall, Ambleside, the very beautiful retreat centre owned by the diocese of Carlisle. The weekend is planned to include worship, fellowship, lots of fun and laughter and some free time to enjoy the scenic surroundings.
We have been fortunate to have had inspirational leaders to guide us, in programs designed to enable faith enrichment and develop our vision for St Nicholas church and the wider community. Leaders in recent years have included Bishop Geoff Pearson & his wife Jean; Revd Canon Judy Hirst and Bishop Julian Henderson & his wife, Heather.
Approximately 40 adults and 10 children / young people attend. We encourage all ages to come and make special provision for the children, having been fortunate to have the help and expertise of Sue Witts and her husband, Herbie.
The next weekend is planned for Friday 30 August to Sunday 1 September 2019.
