On 8th March 2019, 25 young people went on a weekend away to Dalesdown near Horsham, for the Cornerstone Youth Weekend Away.
The weekend was a chance for the two groups, Soul (ages 11-14) and Rooted (aged 15-18), to get away for the weekend and have fun, build relationships with...
'Remember your creator'. That's the resounding message which has stuck in my mind, and in the minds of many of us after our annual SOS (Students on Sunday) Weekend Away. The trip, although only a couple of days spent in Eastbourne, was filled with leisure activities, laughs, and of course,...
On the cusp of spring,
