CASTLEWELLAN CHURCH FAMILY WEEKEND 7-9 June 2019
There is still space in the large campsite at Castlewellan for our annual church weekend.
This is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a relaxed weekend with our wider church family.
It is not just for families or those who enjoy camping or caravanning.
For those who like more luxury there are other options available.
This year will have more scheduled activities than in recent years and Sunday Worship will not be in the Castle.
More details of the programme for the weekend available next Sunday.
Anyone still interested in coming and in need of accommodation please contact the Church Office.
