Northumbria Community Camp

Top Farm, Marsham, Norfolk 

Thursday 29th August – Sunday 1st September 2019

Following the success of last years camp and the feedback we received from those who came, we are inviting you to join us for an extended and special Community Camp in 2019 when we will be presenting a Celtic Fire celebrating the life of Aidan on his saints day, Saturday 31st August

Join Roy and Shirley Searle and other Companions of the Community at Top Farm, Norfolk this summer.

Its an opportunity to join with other Companions and Friends in the relaxed and delightful setting of Top Farm, Marsham in a beautiful area of Norfolk. The camp will be structured around the rhythm of the monastic day, sharing Offices, exploring various themes on the Community’s Rule of Life, creative workshops and being part of presenting Celtic Fire on the Saturday night in nearby Reepham. There will be lots of time to just chill out, relax and enjoy the immediate and surrounding area around Top Farm.

The camp is suitable for people of all ages and backgrounds and is open to anyone who wants to explore and spend time with the Community over the weekend.

You are welcome to stay from Thursday 29th August through to Wednesday 4th September, though the formal camp programme runs from Thursday evening through to Sunday afternoon.
