Our weekend away will be a time to build community, by spending time with each other and with God, having fun, worshipping, learning from the Bible, and getting to know each other better across all ages.

Ian StackhouseOur speaker is Ian Stackhouse, Pastoral leader of Guildford Baptist Church (Millmead) since 2004. He is married to Susanna and they have four boys, all of whom support Burnley Football Club. In his spare time Ian likes reading novels, writing poetry, walking in the Surrey Hills, watching movies, playing football with his boys and listening to Russian Orthodox music. He has written ‘The Gospel-driven Church’, ‘The Day is Yours’ and most recently, ‘Primitive Piety: A Journey from Suburban Mediocrity to Passionate Christianity’.

He will be speaking to us on the title “Unsophisticated Christianity”. He explains that this “will be exploring ways in which we might recover, in our busy, sophisticated world, the Biblical rhythms of work, rest and play, as well as the full range of emotions that we see in the person of Jesus, as opposed to the fairly tame emotions of ‘nice’ suburbia.”

Mat says “Every weekend away I have been involved in has been a special time for St Matthew’s. Please don’t let money stop you going. If you need some help do ask Mat who has funds available to help. If you don’t go, we’ll miss you and you may well feel that you have missed out.”
