2019 Events

Greenside Parish Weekend at Emmaus Youth Village

Friday 10 May to Sunday 12 May 2019

This will be a special time to come together as a church family, for two nights, staying at the Emmaus Youth Village, Pemberton Rd, Allensford, Consett DH8 9BA. It's situated in the rolling hills of the Derwent Valley and surrounded by outstanding natural beauty.

If you haven't stayed there before, you will love the 'Swiss Village' look of this place. It has: Large Capacity Auditorium and Dining Hall, 98 beds spread across 4 suites, Twin and Triple en-suite Bedrooms, Underfloor heating, Surrounded by 60 acres of land, Free Wi-Fi, Disabled Access and Areas for prayer and reflection.

How much? We are not charging anyone to come on the weekend away. The cost will be paid from church funds. However, everyone is encouraged to make a contribution to church funds to help cover the cost of the weekend. To give you an idea, we expect the weekend to cost about £80 per adult and £50 per child on average. Please think and pray about how many places you would like to cover. Contributions will go into general church funds and if we have anything left over, we’ll use it for church running costs.

Interested? To ensure your place is booked, speak to Beth for a form to be completed and then handed back to her. Forms will also be available in church. 

Exciting times ahead!

United 19 at The East of England Showground, Peterborough

Week 1: Sunday 27 Jul 2019 - 09:00 to Saturday, 2 Aug 2019 - 23:00

Week 2: Sunday 4 August 2019 - 9:00am to Saturday, 10 August 2019 - 11:00pm

(We will soon be posting which week our church members will be booking into. Watch this space!)

What is United 19? New Wine gathers as a family in the summer to celebrate everything God has done in our lives, and to encounter him afresh together and take his blessing back to our churches and communities – to see the nation changed through the local Church.

United is a space for our church network to spend quality time together, to pitch in as a family, sharing food, receiving and praying for one another, and supporting each other and our churches. Experience impactful teaching, worship, a programme for all, friendships for life and transformational encounters with God.

With the nation in mind, we’ve been praying for several years for an opportunity to move our summer events to a more central location. Peterborough is near major transport routes and is more easily accessible for a greater number of people. The showground has excellent facilities, with room for us grow and, for any non-campers, over 1,000 hotel rooms nearby!  

Our prayer is that this event is bigger than the two weeks when we gather, that it helps resource and commission the local church. We want to acknowledge and welcome God’s Spirit at work in and through us to be sent, living what we sing and experience in our everyday. We’d love you to join us at the start of this new chapter for New Wine.
