Xcellr8 Weekend

Xcellr8 is an annual residential weekend for primary school children aged 8-11, which seeks to help children meet with God, as they join with others from around the region.
Fun, friendship and faith are all on the agenda.

Games, swimming, sports hall fun, quieter times, great food and ‘international carrot flinging’ are all on offer at Xcellr8. Our 2020 theme is ‘Investig8’ where we aim to discover more about Jesus. Xcellr8 has been running for over 15 years and has a maximum limit of 64 children. Xcellr8 has been fully booked in recent years by mid-November, so please don’t leave it too late to book!

Please note that children must be 8 years old by the time of the weekend; 11 year olds must be in Year 6.

Xcellr8 2020 is 14th – 16th February.
