Bringing Healing, Wholeness and Freedom 

Copy of Insta Big Weekend 2022


Booking now closed


We are excited to announce our weekend away with HBC Chester and Overflow Church is going ahead in June 2022.  It's been a long wait, so can't wait to all join together.  We are excited that Riverhouse Life from Pembroke and Zac's Kingdom Community based in Northwich are going to join us too.

A weekend for all the family.  A weekend of making friends,  loads of fun and activities and lots of opportunities to encounter God, worship, and discover more about God and who we are.  As it's a family event, the kids and youth will have their own activities and meetings.  Kids work is going to be delivered by Powerpack click here to find out more (Kids work for 2yrs to 5yrs and 6yrs to school year 6).
(all youth and kids activities will follow HBC policies)

We would love for you to join us.

Please book by the 11th Feb 2022 (deposit required) as this will hugely help make sure we have the right amount of accommodation, after this date spaces may be limited.


What about Covid?We trust that the event will be able to go ahead.  We want this to be a safe place for all, so everyone attending (school yr 7 upwards) will need to bring proof of a negative lateral flow test done no more than 24hrs before the start of the event.  We will also follow any of the Welsh Government guidelines that will be in place. This may involve over 11's requiring wearing a facemask in public spaces and during meetings (unless medically exempt).  We will send out more details closer to the time.

Where is Cefn Lea? Cefn Lea is a Christian holiday centre near Newtown Mid Wales.  It's roughly 1hr 30 mins from Chester and 1hr 45 mins from Winsford (may take slightly longer with Friday traffic).

What are the accommodation and facilities like?You have the option to bring your own tent or touring caravan/campervan (tourer pitches are hard standing electric hookup) or stay in the accommodation at Cefn Lea.  Cefn Lea has various accommodation, a bungalow, cabins and some static caravans.  Unfortunately, you won't have a choice of what accommodation type you stay in as this will be chosen to best fit bed allocation.  The general rule is log cabins and bungalow will be great for families.

cefn-lea-masthead-chalet-500x5What are the bungalow/chalets like?
The bungalow has a total of 6 bedrooms, with rooms sleeping up to 3 or 4 people, with a communal kitchen and lounge area.  The chalets have 3 bedrooms each sleeping up to 4 or 5 people and a kitchen and lounge area. Unfortunately, none of our accommodation is ensuite.  To give you advance warning, all bedrooms feature bunk beds - great for kids!  We appreciate that it is not ideal for couples, however, you can still book a room - the spare bunk beds are great for bag storage! There are duvets and pillows provided in each bedroom, however, you need to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers / sleeping bags.

This accommodation is ideal for families or friends wanting to share and we aim to accommodate people wanting to be in the same building as much as possible and needs indicating on the booking form.  

Lesiure home cefn leaWhat are Leisure Homes (static caravans) like?
We have limited availability so you will need to book quick.  Individual Leisure Homes consists of 3 bedrooms (1 bedroom with double bed, 2 bedrooms with 2 singles in each) with a lounge, kitchen & bathroom sleeping up to 6 people.  There are duvets and pillows provided in each bedroom, however, you need to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers / sleeping bags.

If you would prefer to stay off site, Newtown is only around 15 mins away and you can book a weekend or day pass to join us on site.

What are the rest of the facilities like?
On site, there are loads of facilities from tennis courts, sports hall, a park for children, pitch and putt, crazy golf, frisbee golf, indoor children's area, table tennis, nature reserve, forest trail and walks.  For a small charge you can also play pool, air hockey, or table football.

What's the cost?cefn-lea-masthead-food-4-500x5Cost includes all your food for the weekend all cooked for you; all you need to do is help clear your table.  We even have a buffet on Fri from 7pm and we finish the weekend with Sunday Lunch.  Cefn Lea are able to accommodate dietary requirements; you simply need to let us know when you book.

I plan on sharing a tent or room with someone else. What's the best way to book?There are 2 ways of sharing: -
1) Organise who you want to share a room/tent or caravan/campervan with and once you have agreed with them, all book together on the same form.  You can even click option on booking form to pay separately which we will arrange when we contact you to confirm booking.
2) I would like to share a room with someone but don't know who to share with, then simply click find someone for me to share with and we will link you up with someone if we can.

Can I stay off site?Yes you can.  Newtown is the closest town which is only 15 minutes away, if you choose to stay off site, you still need to book a weekend or day pass.

Can I visit just for a day?Yes, you just need to book a day pass.

How do I get there?The best way to get there is by car. However, there is a train station in Newtown, which is 5 miles away from Cefn Lea.  Everyone is responsible for making their own way to Cefn Lea. If you are struggling to organise a lift, please speak to a leader (if you are in a Missional Community, please speak to your Missional Community leader first).

As a young person can I come without my parent/guardian?Yes, you can book and we would love for you to come. However, this is slightly different to the youth weekend where our youth workers take responsibility for everyone.  As it's a church weekend for the whole church, we want to give our youth workers a bit less responsibility.  If you would like to come, we recommend your parents find another adult who is happy to take responsibility for you.  To help ensure that this is organised correctly you would need to download and fill this form in.  If you have any questions, please speak to Paul or Abi.

I can't wait to go, how do I book?Simply click on this link and fill in the booking form. We will check spaces and then send you an email either confirming your booking or giving information of spaces left available.  Once you have received your email, which will have all the details required to pay for your space, you will need to pay a deposit within 2 weeks of receiving the confirmation email, otherwise, you may lose your booking.  There will be a late booking fee of £15 for bookings received from 1st June 2022.
