Spring Harvest is a Christian festival held at Butlins in Minehead each Easter. The event is a unique opportunity for the whole Church to gather for teaching, ministry, worship and fellowship, and includes dedicated programmes for children, younger teenagers, older teenagers and adults.
The GC Youth Trip to Spring Harvest 2014 will be to Week 3. This starts on Monday 14 April and we’ll return on Good Friday, 18 April.
Spring Harvest have shortened some of their events to four nights rather than five, and due to school holidays we have only been able to consider attending one of the shorter events. This does mean that the cost of the trip is reduced compared to 2013.
There is a discount for those who are under 15 years of age on the first day of the event, so the total cost is as follows:
Ages 11-14 £225
Ages 15+ £240
The above cost includes accommodation, transport and food for the week as well as access to the whole Spring Harvest programme. Most of the Butlins facilities are also free for guests to use.
We realise that the trip is very expensive, and have done our best to minimise costs. In order to help, we offer the option of paying in instalments by standing order, even for late bookings. Please also note that we do have some funding available to assist those who would otherwise be unable to attend – please speak to Ben or Nathan (in confidence) if you wish to discuss this.
To book, click here to download the Late Bookings application form. You are strongly advised to book as soon as possible if you wish to attend.
1) Join the GC Youth trip
The GC Youth trip will be running as a joint Youth/Upload trip as in previous years, and we may still have places available to attend as a member of the group. Please speak to Ben before attempting to book.
2) Come and help
We may still have need of people to be part of the team to help look after a young people’s chalet. If you’re interested, please speak to Ben or Nathan as soon as possible.
3) Do your own thing
There is still the option to attend the event with a group of family or friends independently of the GC Youth / GC Upload trip. Not only does this give you a choice of any of the three weeks, but it also gives you flexibility about your accommodation and catering options, so it may be ideal if you’re on a tight budget. It’s still worth booking this through the Church, so please speak to Ben or Nathan, or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
