Welcome to URC Holiday Forum

Forum 2017 is now over – and what a successful week it was enjoyed by all!  A report on the week is now available written by Wendy Roe and her family.

Missed out, or just missing Forum – don’t despair the details for Forum 2018 are here!  The week will start on the 18th August 2018 and the theme is Jesus-shaped Church – mission and discipleship versus survivalism – and the theme leader is Lawrence Moore who was director of the Windermere Centre and is now a church Mission and Discipleship consultant on a Pay What You Can basis.  More details about Forum 2018 at the Hayes Conference Centre are available from this website by clicking on the Forum 2018 link in the menu above.

Some quotes from previous Forums:

Quote from a first timer – The welcome has been full of warmth and smiles!

Since I retired in 1982 this is my only summer holiday and strengthens me for the next 12 months.

Thanks for everyone being friendly and welcoming.

Everyone is to be congratulated on an excellent week overall – thank you from a first timer.

I have attended other such forums, but this is unique. It is a must in my calendar and I hope I shall be able to attend for many years to come.

People are welcoming and inclusive to people on first time visits.

Quote from a Forum attendee – “The uniqueness of Holiday Forum is its ability to be inclusive. It unites all people as a family and treats all individuals as human beings.”

Quote from a first timer – “it was great to walk into such a welcoming atmosphere and meet such friendly people, can’t wait till next year.”

Quote from Revd Dr David Cornick – General Secretary of the URC at General Assembly 2004 – “Holiday Forum is a jewel in the crown of our church.”
