Many do not have as much opportunity for holidays away, but we can enjoy being together as God’s people. So each year, we hold our own 3 day holiday, right here at Grace Baptist.
When is it?
Tuesday 18th – Thursday 20th August 2015
What is it?
Many do not have as much opportunity for holidays away, but we can enjoy being together as God’s people. Holiday at Home is open to all over 60s connected to the church in any way and it is an opportunity to fellowship together informally, share our faith, have fun & eat well.
First 2 days of activities in the church with guest speakers, quizzes, singing, games/activities, devotional times.

Tea & cake at the end, finishing at 3.30
Special Guests: John and Marion McDonald
Where does it happen?
1st two days, all the activities are in the main church building so that it is all access friendly for the older folks.
3rd day out – Coach trip to Erdigg, the National Trust property near Wrexham in North Wales.
Thursday Outing to Erdigg
3rd day is a coach outing to a local attraction, including those in wheelchairs. Help provided by the younger, fitter ones.
Erdigg tells the story of a gentry family’s relationship with its servants (as it would have been in the days of the Empire and the Raj). It has a 1200 acre landscape park and gardens.
