St Paul's Church weekend at Brunel Manor

17-19 December

everyone on stairs

On our first whole church weekend we enjoyed the hospitality of Brunel Manor, near Torquay.  The weather was fine, beaches were explored and the Reverends Jane and Charles Burgess presented some thought provoking teaching.  The good weather meant that half the group also got out on walks.
