Church Weekend Away 2018

This year‘s Church Weekend Away 
 will take place from  
18th – 21st May 2018
Jugendherberge Kretzschau
This year's Church Weekend Away will be held at a new site near Zeitz, so will be much closer to Leipzig than in recent years.
Do join us for this opportunity to get to know one another better in the wider church family, and to spend time listening to
God’s Word together.
Jonathan Fletcher, who lives in retirement near Wimbledon, will be our speaker. He is a retired clergyman, who served in churches in north London, Cambridge, the 'City of London' (Finanzzentrum) and Wimbledon.
It was during his time there that Emmanuel Church, Wimbledon supported Mike Cain to be assistant pastor at LEC
between 1999 and 2002, and Jonathan was Church Weekend speaker in 2002. So he has been praying for us for many years.
Martin has known him since his student days and they have regularly been on bachelor holidays together, with a decreasing number of fellow-bachelors ...
Jonathan' talks with be on Ezekiel 33-37, under the title:
The gospel according to Ezekiel
