2018 marks our very first Taking Ground Family Camp!

This is a regional camp running exclusively for our church family, made up of nine community churches from Hexham, Birtley, Sunderland, Durham, Tees Valley, Middlesbrough, Easingwold, Leeds, and York. There will be groups for kids and youth, prayer and worship, practical teaching, family events and fun – all this while getting to know and spend time with people in your church region!

The event will run from Friday 4th May to Tuesday 8th May 2018.
Arrival is from around midday on Friday, with the first gathering in the evening. There is a praise and worship event for the whole family on Monday evening (finishing time to be confirmed), and then for those who wish to stay over, Tuesday morning is time to pack up and be off site by 12pm.
