Ripon is life changing! Whether you’re loud or quiet, sporty or not, there will be something for you. Previously activities included swimming, gorge walking, via ferrata, arts, book club, loads more, AND we meet with God through inspiring worship, relevant talks & space to ask the questions that matter. As one former member said: ‘Best week of the year; met amazing people & rediscovered faith’. If you’re looking for a week of fun, friends and fantastic food: Ripon is for you. So come & join us!
The Location :
No tents here! Nice, warm rooms with loads of space & plenty of bathrooms! You'll share with about 2-5 other folks, & if you're coming with friends just let us know & we'll try & put you together. Because the site is so huge, we get to use the art rooms, massive gyms, tennis courts, basketball nets, table tennis tables etc & we love to use the heated indoor pool for some late night swims.
The Activities and The Programme:
7 Heavenly Days: Activities may include Gorge walking, caving, kayaking, via ferrata, arts, swimming, book club and lots more! Life-changing: Worship, Bible, prayers, truth, relevance: groups that “switch from entertainment to worshipping communities” (Rev. R. Gamble). Community: New friends, leaders who love Jesus & love life. Fun: A big range of activities from creative and arty to sporty and outdoors. Whatever you like there will be something that you love. Summary? We wouldn’t be anywhere else. As one former member said: 'Best week of the year; met amazing people & rediscovered faith'.
There’s more than just two Tims! Ripon has a great team of leaders made up of all types of people from all over the country. Some of us are loud, some thoughtful, others are arty, others are into dance, drama or music. Some are into technical stuff, others really sporty. Whatever you are into, you’ll find someone on your wavelength. Our leaders are not just excited about all the great activities we will get involved with, they also think God is great and are happy to talk about it. We love getting together each summer to give you guys the best holiday possible: It’s the highlight of our year.
