You are warmly welcomed to a weekend of activities at HBC. We are encouraging all to set apart time to connect with others and connect with God. Most sessions are opportunities to build relationships, and the teaching/worship/ministry sections are around the theme of Encountering God. Saturday and Sunday sessions for adults and youth are led by Peter & Chris Jackson and children’s sessions by Linds Ledger & family.
Take a look at the draft schedule and sign up form to complete and email back.
Friday Night! (21st January)- Roaming Dinner Party
6.00pm–Roaming Supper lite:
3 Courses In 1 Venue (Good for families)
A simpler approach to the roaming… Three family/groups will join together in one venue and bring a course each
6.30pm– Roaming Supper
3 Courses in 3 Venues
The full roaming experience, three venues, three courses, you host one course.
(To think about: If you are on you are on your own, why not team up with a friend from church and do this together?)
How does the full Roaming Supper work?
- Each family/group will serve one course of a three-course meal for six or more people in their own home. Everyone will know well in advance which course they are to provide.
- At church or via email we a week before, we will let you know where you need to be for the first course. We will also let you know which course you are hosting, if at all. The hosts for the first two courses will be given sealed envelopes.
- At the end of the starter the host will open the envelope to reveal where everyone will be going for the main course. Each group will be going to a different home as the idea is that you meet as many different people as possible.
- The main course will start at 7.30pm and at the end of the main course the host will open the envelope to reveal where everyone is going for dessert.
