This is a friendly weekend aimed at families aged 0-16 to meet old friends and make new ones. During the morning, adults and children are led in separate sessions learning and creating with experienced leaders. Saturday afternoon is free to spend time in the grounds or to join in family activities which vary year to year. The evenings are a time for all ages to mingle and join in fun and games together, and weather permitting we hope to have a firework display (this is through money contributed by the group during the weekend). A weekend to gather together in a beautiful environment to enjoy fun and fellowship as well as time to learn and reflect.
Jenny Jones is a teacher who has loved attending Purley Chase all her life and Steve Jones is a fire fighter who was first introduced to Purley as a teenager and has been coming ever since. They now have three children who also see the centre as “a home from home” They love meeting other families to share in weekends full of fun, laughter and the chance to think about and discuss spiritual issues relevant to our hectic modern lives.
