THEME FOR THE WEEK END
"Who do you think you are?"
OBJECTIVE OF THE WEEKEND
We do hope that you are able to join us on this weekend retreat. INstep men weekends try to meet the need of the whole man, body, soul and spirit, as we spend time together over the weekend. We do, however, each have a personal responsibility to give and receive. We will be in a lovely part of the country and away from the usual daily demands.
The format of the weekend retreat will be similar to that of previous years. Full details will be sent to you closer to the weekend.
The group is made up of men from a wide age group from many different churches and Christian traditions, so there is a richness and diversity in our gathering.
Our last session of the weekend is following Sunday lunch, when we join together to share communion, which is a fitting end to our fellowship together. You would be very welcome to join us if this has meaning to you.
