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.

DETAILS

Kids' programme: Mark and his team are running a full kids programme, from 9.15-12.30 on both Saturday and Sunday!

Cost = Rego Cost + Accommodation Cost. There is both a registration cost AND an accommodation cost - see below. There's options for varying budgets, and you can share to keep costs down. If you can't afford to register below and then receive a subsidy, please speak to Dave or to Ash in the office and we'll see how we can help. 

Single / Dating / Engaged? Just add the 'SHARE' accommodation item to the cart (see below), and we'll help you organise accommodation with some friends.

Part-time? To make the most of the community time, we hope you'll plan to come full-time. We know that's just not possible for some people so we'd love you to come for a night (part-time accommodation will be available after Easter) or for a day visit (choose Rego - Adult and select the meals you need for the Saturday). 

PLEASE NOTE: there will only be a 9.15AM gathering (and no 4PM gathering) in Clovelly on Sunday 26th May.

For any other questions, please contact Dave on dave@clovelly.org.au

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.
