Church Weekend Away 2017


Talks by Simon Smallwood

We had a wonderful weekend away at Sunningdale Park in March 2017 with Simon Smallwood. Simon gave three talks on Acts 2 at our weekend away. You can access the talks below (mp3 format): 





In a church like St Ebbe's it can be hard to get to know one another and to build a sense of church family, so over the years our Church Weekends Away have been really important and precious times. This coming year, with all the building work and the disruption that will bring, this time together will be particularly important. We would love as many as possible to come and join us. The weekend runs from Friday evening, 24th March, finishing after lunch on the Sunday. There will be good teaching from the Bible, plenty of time to relax and have fun, and there will be a full programme for the 0-14s.



Our speaker this year will be Simon Smallwood. For the last 20 years, Simon has been the Pastor of St George’s Church, Dagenham. He is married to Lizzy. They have three children Sam (18), Ailie (15) and Bea (6).



Once again we will be staying at Sunningdale Park, near Ascot (SL5 0QE), which has proved an excellent venue for these weekends. There’s plenty to do, with tennis and squash courts, 65 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland to explore and lovely places to visit close by. All bedrooms are en suite with television, telephone, tea & coffee tray etc. There is plenty of parking space available and Sunningdale railway station, which is about 1.5 miles away, is served by trains from Reading and Waterloo. For more details about Sunningdale Park visit


We are conscious that a weekend like this is expensive and we are anxious that no one should be excluded for purely financial reasons. It is possible to spread the cost over a number of months and help is available - please speak to one of the congregation leaders.
