Freshers’ Getaway

Freshers’ Getaway

Coming to Durham this October? Thinking of getting involved with the Christian Union? Then Freshers’ Getaway is the place for you! 

Come along for a fun-filled weekend of building foundational friendships with other Christian freshers and current students alike, worshipping and praying together, getting some great teaching from the Bible, and thinking about what being a Christian in Durham will look like for you.

Freshers’ Getaway 2018 will be taking place on the 17th-19th September at The Poplars, Dyke House Lane, Bromsberrow Heath, Ledbury HR8 1QY.

The nearest station to the Freshers’ Getaway is Ledbury – please let us know on the sign-up form if you’ll need a lift from the station to The Poplars and we’ll sort this out for you. We’ll also let you know the precise arrival and departure times a bit closer to the event.

The cost for the Getaway is £55. This will cover your accommodation and food for the three days. Please bring cash with you when you arrive. However, if cost is the only thing stopping you from coming then please do get in contact with us by emailing and we’ll try and sort something out. We would hate the cost of the three days to stop you from joining us!
