Something extraordinary happens when we get together
Focus is our annual church summer holiday. It's a chance for the St John's community to grow together, as well as enjoy quality time with our wider church network with teaching, worship and lots of fun activities!
As a church community we camp together, eat together and have campfires together, as well as joining with the rest of the HTB network for the Big Top sessions (worship, teaching, ministry time) and other labs, activities and seminars.
When is Focus?
The Focus 2022 dates are Thursday 28 July until Sunday 31 July. The full programme and main celebrations will start on the evening of Thursday 28 July and finish late on the evening of Sunday 31 July. We will need to leave site by 10am on Monday 1 August.
Where do I sleep?
We want Focus to feel like a home away from home. We will be making the St John's community pitch the centre of our week, where we will eat together and spend time together, and out tents and caravans will be nearby. If camping (/glamping) really doesn't suit you, there’s also the option of finding local accommodation offsite (although we'd encourage you to be onsite with us throughout the day).
What about food?
We are going to be running our own Meal Deal based in the community tent, so you don't need to worry too much about food. The meal deal is for breakfast and an evening meal each day, as well as endless amounts of tea and coffee! There are also lots of other options onsite including hot meals and supplies for camping. In The Village, there will be a mix of coffee stalls, light snack stalls, smoothie stalls and full meal stalls.MEAL DEAL SIGN UP COMING SOON
