away / together

It's the once-a-year chance to be away together ... enjoying each other + growing with God together. 

Here's some *unsolicited* feedback after our 2018 weekend:

  • Thanks for such an awesome weekend away. So many great moments of sharing with others and also reflecting on things in my own life.

  • Thank you for such an amazing weekend - the message was very powerful and it all came together so beautifully.

  • Thank you for organising such a great weekend. It was obvious a lot of work and effort had gone into it.



Paul Grimmond is married to Cathy with three teenagers. He’s been involved in Christian work with UNSW students and now Bible college students. In a world that expects us to relentlessly cultivate our own identity, Paul will be speaking about the new and precious identity that God gives us, as a gift.

It was an awesome weekend. So many Sundays all squeezed into 2 days!! Was good to get to know people more deeply.

I loved having the kids looked after and being given a block of time to sit and think about the Bible.

I enjoyed the free time - going for a walk and getting to know new people. Having the time to talk.
