Youth led ministry, engaging spirituality and a variety of programmes for school years 6 – 13 and parish groups
We are most grateful to you for providing such a facility for our young people. Without exception they all thoroughly benefitted from and enjoyed their stay with you.

Please pass on our thanks to the team. We could not have wished for a better start to our Confirmation course.
The team’s enthusiasm and hard work was much appreciated by both ourselves and the group.
In November all our candidates came to the session which was held from 7.00 – 9.00 on the Wednesday when England were playing!
Thank you again for the brilliant start that you gave us.

We would like to thank you for such a fantastic weekend. The young people have come back full of what they have done and learnt.
I couldn't have imagined how good it was going to be. They have learnt so much and experienced so much we couldn't have provided in years.
So thank you and all the team for preparing our young people for their Confirmation. It will be a wonderful day filled with the Holy Spirit and all the wonderful gifts we now know about.
St Monica’s, Brightlingsea
The theme of the programme was very appropriate for our students... it fitted in well with their RE programme... staff particularly commented on the variety of activities including the time of quiet reflection during the morning which worked very well.
We were all impressed by the Team and the way they interacted with the students... they provided good role models.
The students' feedback has been positive and there is no doubt that the students enjoyed the day and learnt from the activities. I have already put in provisional bookings for next year!

We loved every moment of the weekend... The team you have this year is absolutely amazing! It is such a positive for me to say that my Confirmation candidates are now thanks to you guys so enthusiastic about their beliefs and that their confirmation is something they really want to do.
I don't think I have ever been in or seen a group respond so enthusiastically to the fun and games and spiritual side of things as this weekend... personally the weekend refreshed my belief massively.

This was a brilliant retreat. Our year twelve students came back to school bubbling over with enthusiasm and refreshed by the retreat experience. Thank you.
