Last weekend was the annual In2venture weekend at Blaithwaite House, its the one weekend each year when the whole In2venture community get together.
In2venture is a registered charity and sees itself as: "A Christian community committed to enabling the exploration and expression of faith through outdoor activity"
The weekend is always a great opportunity for folk who work as either permanent staff or volunteers for the charity across the North of England to get together; catch up with friends & colleagues; share stuff that's relevant within the organisation; exchange ideas and just take some time out at Blaithwaite House. This year Trustees & Directors of the charity worked extremely hard over the weekend in order to finalise some important changes that will be implemented as the year progresses.
The weekend began with folk gathering on Friday evening followed by some late night socialising. Saturday morning kicked off with mobile worship around the grounds of Blaithwaite - you can get an outline of the theme by clicking here (content to follow). During the afternoon people either went out or took part in activities at Blaithwaite (Bouldering Wall; Pedal Karts; Fencing) - the long round of Trustees & Directors meetings began. Saturday evening saw more fun, games & socialising - some lasted until the wee small hours.
Sunday worship took place at the summit of a dreek & damp Binsey, in the Northern Fells.
It was an excellent weekend and will hopefully have set the scene for an exciting year at In2venture.
