The Weekend Away – Emerge 2016

Booking is now open for our weekend away, 1st – 3rd April 2016! Emerge 2016 will be a weekend of inspiring seminars, practical workshops, opportunities to network and great worship, with a Biblical perspective on friendship evangelism. This is a weekend not to be missed!
2016 is our Jubilee year and we are delighted to have Activate former Chief Executive and co-author of Unlocking the Door and Freewheeling, Ruth Adams as our keynote speaker.   Whether you are looking to come for the first time, or whether you have been an Activate supporter for 50 years, we would love you to join us as we celebrate the past and look forward to the future.

Be sure to bring your teenage daughters and grand daughters too, as we continue to inspire them through our Miss Activate stream.

For a taste of what to expect, listen to a podcast from last year’s weekend away.  In the meantime, here’s what others thought of last year’s weekend:
Inspirational and uplifting weekend – plenty of food for thought! Comes highly recommended and I will spread the word. Can’t wait until the next one! 🙂
I wanted to let you know that once again you provided a wonderful weekend: the hotel, staff and food were of as high a standard as last year.
The worship band were great, and so lovely to see young people on fire… The speakers were inspirational, not only Laurence and his daughter, but the Activate team members who spoke, were fantastic, speaking from their hearts with honesty, which is such an encouragement to us all.
The ‘Easy like Sunday Morning’ craft, creative, event flowed so naturally into talking about church as it is meant to be. Lots of great seminars, hundreds of helpful conversations with new friends and old. Thank you, everyone!
activate-193We look forward to celebrating the last five decades of women like you ‘getting out there’ and sharing God’s love in natural, meaningful ways.  Standing on the shoulders of (female!) giants we can equip ourselves for today and for the future. Isaiah 43:19 – our theme verse for the weekend – says, ‘I am about to do something brand new’.  Be part of it! Don’t let this opportunity pass you by – get a group of women from your church together and come along.  We really appreciate our fantastic group coordinators who do this every year. And don’t forget, money towards the weekend would make the perfect Christmas present for the ladies in your life!  Click here to go to our registration and booking form.  See you soon!
