Men’s weekend away

Mens Weekend 2015

In late winter or early spring each year, our menfolk usually spend a week-end away – in locations such as the Black Mountains of Gwent, the Brecon Beacons, the Mendip Hills or Dartmoor – staying in bunk-house or B&B style accommodation and walking, talking, having the odd beer and good food, and sharing good company and fellowship with a Christian slant.  Where possible members of the group will seek to join a local Church for Sunday morning service, or else hold informal worship in the accommodation.

St Francis’ Men’s weekend is a great opportunity for some chill-out “bloke” time, and to explore the Christian faith in a very light and informal way, with some great “outdoor” experiences too!

Over the years our men’s group has visited various venues including:

  • Llantony Priory, Black Mountains, Gwent (in at least four different years);
  • Monmouthshire
  • Postbridge, Dartmoor, Devon;
  • Priddy, Mendip Hills, Somerset;
  • Woolhope, Herefordshire.
