What is Spring Harvest?
Spring Harvest started in 1979. Now 20,000 people go each year. In fact, one million guests have been to this annual event over the last 40 years. Spring Harvest is for people of ALL ages; and attracts some of Britain’s best preachers and worship leaders.
It is a time to relax, have a few laughs, and enjoy a good time of fellowship together. It is also an opportunity to explore and grow your own Christian faith. As well as the spiritual side, there are also loads of sporting and recreational facilities to enjoy with family & friends.
Who is going?
Esther & I are organising a trip to Spring Harvest 2020. Again, we are inviting all of the Gornal and Sedgley Methodist circuit, and would like to point-out that we need to book all accommodation on Wednesday 26/06/2019. Therefore, if you wish to join us in 2020, please complete your booking form, and pay your deposit to us no later than Tuesday 25/06/2019.
You can visit the Spring Harvest website by going to: www.springharvest.org
When & Where?
The local primary and secondary schools break-up for Easter on Friday 03/04/2019.
This means that as a group party we can book one from the following options:
Minehead 1 --> 4th-9th April 2020
Minehead 2 --> 13th-17th April 2020
Please note that 12/04/2020 is Easter Sunday. For those thinking of joining us at Spring Harvest 2020, do you have a preference as to which week? - i.e., Week 1 is holy week, Week 2 is cheaper (4 nights). Please email us if you have a particular preference.
How to book?
For those wishing to join us, please do two things:
1. Complete the Spring Harvest Form (which Esther & I can provide).
2. Pay a deposit. Please make cheques payable to: "Methodist Church Gornal & Sedgley Circuit". Initially, we will need a cheque for your deposit (£35 per adult and £25 per child). In February 2020, we will need a second cheque to pay the balance of your booking.
I have group organised this event before, in years 2000, 2001, 2002 and with Esther's help...2019. On each occasion our group has had a lot of fun, as well as developing further our relationship with God.
Finally, just to say… if you have never been to Spring Harvest before, why not give it a try? And if you have been, you know it’s one not to miss!
