Annual Church Weekend Away

Friday, September 21st-Sunday, September 23rd

 Welcome to our Annual Church Weekend Away 2018!

A chance to get to know one another better in a relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful setting, and also to spend time growing deeper with God. Our speaker is currently one of the most influential Christian speakers in the UK (see his bio below), and we are privileged that he is coming to RiverLife for our weekend away.  He has the gift of being able to present deep truth in a simple and applied fashion. 


All rooms are full!
