Men's Weekend Away in The Black Mountains within the Brecon Beacons National Park 2012




Men's Weekend Away in Seaton, May 2011





The 7th Annual Men's W/E away was held at Seaton, on the Devon / Dorset coastal border, and the intrepid twelve who came were treated to the usual wonderful hospitality from the owners of the Peacehaven guesthouse.

The beautiful setting, the breezy coastal walks, views of the ocean and (mainly) clear skies meant that we were once again exposed to God's creation in all its glory – and this provided a fitting backdrop to the men of Burbage forging friendships and deepening bonds.

With All Saints about to enter a period of inter-regnum the Men's Leadership Group believed this would be an excellent opportunity for us all individually to reassess our own faith, hence we chose as the spiritual theme for the weekend, 'An opportunity for Renewal', drawing our inspiration from Nicky Gumbel's excellent book, 'A Life Worth Living', accompanied by St Paul's letter to the Philipppians.


Thought-provoking talks from Chris Tawney, Robert de Berry and Andrew Mallinson on the subjects of: 'A New Heart, New Attitude and New Responsibilities' provoked a good deal of discussion and, we hope, led to further reflection on how we can all individually deepen our walk with Christ and how we might 'follow Him more nearly'.

Once again, this Men's Weekend Away proved to be a time of great camaradie among the men of Burbage with plenty of laughter and fun had by all, as well as providing a time for us all to reflect on our personal faith.


For anyone who might be reading this article who would be interested to hear more then please contact any of the Men's leaders, namely: Alan Brown, Dickie Davies, Peter Shelswell - all residents in Burbage – or Ralph Kennington, Andrew Mallinson or Jonathan Reynolds.

 


 

Breakfast on the Downs

When the Downs are at their most glorious, we meet on a hilltop for a hot breakfast, fellowship and testimony.

Men’s Weekend Away Brecon Beacons

A weekend away from home in the mountains always deepens our friendships and strengthens our love of the Lord.

Ladies Night Out

In the gloomy nights of November we prepare a meal as a way of saying “Thank you!” to the ladies of the church for all they do for us men.

All ages are catered for at our weekends away in the hills.






Dads and Kids Camp-Out

On FridaySeptember 7, 2007, thirteen men from the church, and an equal number of children, gather for an evening of fun, food and fellowship in Tidcombe.  It is a lovely spot for a camp-out.

Ralph brings several tents, including some that had

not been used in a while.

 

No camp is complete without a fire and Justin soon

has one blazing.  The kids help set up the tents and poke the fire. 

Anna knows the ropes and helps her Dad.

       Hey, Dad, this is fun!

 

Setting up camp is hungry work.  Fortunately, the barbecue is hot and the food is filling the campsite

with tempting aromas.

Richard checks the venison, and it is delicious.

 

Peter is surprised with a frying pan in his hands.

In no time the feast is ready.  Who says men can’t cook?

Andrew dishes up food for Chris and soon all the

kids are satisfied.

Most of all, the kids have fun.  This is definitely not “Boring!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The Dads too are relaxed and enjoying the

fellowship.

Later, as it grows dark, Eddie sets up his magnificent telescope, and we have a stunning view of Jupiter and its four moons. 

No camp is complete without campfire songs and roasted marshmallows, and we have plenty of

both.

Our time together ends with breakfast cooked on the fire.  What a treat!  The Men’s Group hopes that our camp out will become a regular fixture on the church calendar.  Thanks to all involved, especially Ralph who did most of the work.
