The Whit weekend is an important date in the diary of not only the Ringway Church, but also many families across the British Union. A chance to get away for a long weekend retreat in the beautiful landscape of Aberdaron on the Llynn Peninsula.

Glan-yr-Afon, the campsite that has been part of so many people’s lives for over 50 years was once again the venue for this special camp. With over 150 people signed up, the camp is right on the limit of the capacity for the hall. An incredible testimony for the spirit of Aberdaron.

With a mixed forecast on the cards, regulars to Aberdaron know the microclimate that exists here, where the tides coming up though Cardigan bay and across from the North Wales coast meet at the “Point” between where the main land ends, and Bardsey Island rises out of the Irish Sea creating a weather scene that can change by the hour.

Fortunately the weather held, with the rain persisting through the night, but leaving day time sufficiently dry to see many glowing faces in the evenings.

Pastor Nathan Stickland, the padre for this camp, shared some spine tingling stories and testimonies the power and impact felt by the sheer silence at the end of each evening.

The day times were filled with water sports, go-karts, long walks in nature, the evenings with fun and games, with excellent food in between.

Chalets are already booked for next year, and with this camp reaching capacity, we’re expecting another fully packed camp in 2018!

We are planning to provide an online booking & payment system for the 2018 camp.
