Our annual residential retreat for fathers and their 5-10 year old sons is going to be a memory-making time away from everyday life.
Our theme is JUSTICE LEAGUE. For this year's Father and Son retreat we plan to grow in our unity and the special bond we have as fathers and sons; to experience and take part in Godís Justice, In a world where there is so much injustice.
The programme will include outdoor activities provided by Gilwell Park, our own activities, worship times, great home-cooked food and lots of fun!
We have invited Uwa Bazuaye and his two sons to speak at a special class for fathers only on Saturday afternoon whilst our sons are entertained by retreat volunteers. Uwa and his family live in West London.
This retreat is open to our friends and family, that is, fathers with son(s) 5-10 years old!
