Venue

The Pioneer Centre
Cleobury Mortimer
Shropshire
DY14 8JG

The Pioneer Centre is located in the Shropshire countryside, bordering the Wyre Forest and near to the market town of Kidderminster. The centre is a purpose-built conference and activity centre with excellent facilities.

Accommodation

All rooms are en-suite with a mix of bunk and single beds. There are no twin, double or single rooms: most rooms sleep 4 to 5. Families will have their own room, and there are options for young people to be in dorms. There may be options for couples to be together in their own room. However, in order to maximize the number of places we can offer, we would like adults to consider sharing with friends.

Programme

20 – 22 October 2023  Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.

There will be main teaching and worship sessions throughout the weekend. Outside of these, there will be plenty of time to relax, unwind and reflect, plus the opportunity for additional activities and entertainment on Saturday.

You are welcome to join as much or as little of the programme as you wish.

Youth & Children

In addition to the main teaching and worship sessions we are running children’s and young people’s groups during the main sessions, with guest leaders. A crèche will be available.
 

Saturday Afternoon Activities

The choice is yours about how you spend your afternoon: you may want to relax at the Centre, or explore the nearby Medieval market town of Ludlow. There is a golf course nearby, and the surrounding countryside is good for cycling.  There will also be a group walk from the Centre to make the most of the lovely area.

The Pioneer Centre is also offering this exciting package of instructed activities for anyone aged over 8 years.  These proved extremely popular on our last weekend away.
  • Abseil/Zip wire
  • Trek Course (a small 'go ape')
  • Climbing
  • Archery (indoors) 
Participants will rotate round the different activities during the 90-minute session. The cost is £10 per participant.
