Weekend Retreats—Spring 2019
In the spring of 2019, we will continue to hold weekend retreats at Bower House. The goal of these times is to come together with fellow believers to blend and learn to function together in pursuing the truth and in serving practically. It is also a wonderful opportunity to invite friends, family, or someone you know who would like to know the Lord more or meet with other believers.
There are two blocks scheduled this spring, and we hope that as many as possible from across Europe (aged 18 and over) could attend one weekend in each block. We have suggested that specific localities attend certain weekends as it would be encouraging to come as a group and to share travel and child-care arrangements. However, you are not limited to those weekends and are welcome to come to as many weekend retreats as you are able.
|Block 1||Block 2||Proposed Geographical Areas|
|16 March||4 May||London Hall 1 and Southwest Cluster|
|23 March||11 May||London Hall 6 and East Cluster|
|30 March||18 May||London Halls 2 and 3, the Midlands, and North Cluster|
|6 April||25 May||London Halls 4 and 5, Scotland, and Ireland|
The schedule for Saturday is below:
|8.30am – 9.30am||Registration and tea & coffee with light breakfast|
|9.30am – 11am||Meeting 1 (message from 96 lessons)|
|11am – 12.30pm||Practical service (Bible packing, fellowship, or rest)|

Shuttle service—8.45am from Newbury Park, returning at 5pm & 7pm.
Optionally, stay over Saturday night in Amana Trust accommodation and join the Lord’s Day morning meetings at Bower House (please note that it is shared accommodation).
Registration in advance is required for us to prepare for each weekend retreat. The deadline will be two weeks before each weekend retreat.
Charge: Saturday is free (donations may be given to Amana Trust if you wish). Overnight stay on Saturday is £20 per person for bed & breakfast.
Children: As we are unable to receive children under 18 years old, we encourage those with children to arrange childcare with other saints in your area in turn so that everyone can attend at least one weekend retreat.
Please bring this invitation to the Lord. We hope that this time will be a great encouragement to us all and provide a way for those of us who enjoy this ministry to be brought into more fellowship and enjoyment of the Word together and to meet others from our area.
May the Lord bless you richly,
