We are so excited to be going to Castle Court School for our church weekend away in July. If you are a member of the Lantern we would LOVE to have you join us for what promises to be a fantastic time away together as a church family.

There will be teaching from Richard and Nicola Moy, leaders of Christ Church W4 in London, and Regional Directors for New Wine in London. And the fantastic Pulse Ministries will be providing some top-notch children’s and youth work - they’re fab! 

The venue at Castle Court School has some amazing facilities, from a central venue that can take us all for worship, to breakout rooms for kids work and seminars; fantastic sports facilities, a campfire location and even a swimming pool! On-top of all that, we have use of a huge marquee for some special meals and a party on the Saturday night.

And of course, being just 15 minutes drive from Merley, it helps make the weekend accessible to all. We would love to encourage you to join us and camp on-site from Friday evening through till Sunday - that’ll be the most fun! But if that’s too much and you prefer to stay at home (I can understand that too!), then you can of course drive in and join us each day.

Please note that the majority of the camping space is for those with a tent. There are 4 spaces available for those with a caravan/ small motorhome without hook-up. If you would like to book one of these please email

We would love folk to book on asap so that we can arrange the necessary logistics and have a good idea for catering. A variety of ways to pay have been arranged; either in full or by laying down a deposit and settling the balance at a later date.

Pricing Structure (inclusive of Saturday lunch & supper + Sunday lunch):

Adult (yr11+) - £50

Child (R - yr10) - £35

Child (under 5) - Free

Camping pitch - £10 (1 pitch per family unit)

Deposit - £10 per person

If you'd like to pay via cheque, cash or in instalments please contact

Whilst we’ve tried to keep it affordable, if the finances of it are too much then that is NOT an excuse not to come, you can spread the payments or ask for some help from a bursary. We want everyone from the church family who would like to be with us, to be there, money is not a good enough reason not to come so please just confidentially email me at and I’ll see what we can do to help. 

Love Mike and Michelle
