SJDH Weekend Away (17th-19th November)
A view from Denham Grove hotel
What's it all about?
St John's Weekend Away is a fantastic opportunity to make and strengthen friendships, to relax together and to come to know God better. Whether you are young or old, a newcomer or old-timer, regular or occasional in your attendance of St John's we would love to have you along. In the past many have found that the weekend away has been a tremendous help in really feeling part of the church family.

This year we are delighted to welcome Giles Fouhy, minister of St Barnabas Dalston. It has been 500 years this year since Martin Luther first nailed his 95 Theses to the doors of Wittenberg castle church, kickstarting the Reformation. But is the Reformation still relevant today? Join us to find out!

Where are we going?
Nestled in the heart of Buckinghamshire, Denham Grove is in a peaceful countryside setting near to Uxbridge with easy access to major roads and train lines. Its a great place to relax with an indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and mini-gym. There are also a number of local attractions nearby and some Saturday afternoon activity options will be available. Every meal will be cooked for us by the hotel staff, freeing us up to spend more time with each other. There are also a number of local attractions nearby and some Saturday afternoon activity options will be available.

What about children?
There will be a separate programme of activities for children during the main sessions, allowing both children and parents to make the most of the weekend. Some family bedrooms are available, as well as some interconnecting family rooms, on a first come, first served basis. Cots are available. If you would be willing to help with one of the sessions during the weekend, please indicate this on the application form.
How much is it?
In order to enable everyone to come on this weekend, without cost being an obstacle, no charge is being made for the weekend. Your presence is much more precious than your money!

Many may like to make a gift to St John’s on account of the costs to the church of this weekend, and more widely for all the ongoing costs of the ministry at St John’s. As a suggestion, here is a breakdown of the costs:

Single room - £190 per person
Double room (single beds) - £140 per person
Double room (shared bed) - £140 per person
Children (aged 4-14) - £40 per child
Children (under 4s) - free

Can I come for just part of the weekend?
