This film was made independently by Jonathan (aged 10) after he came to our TREASURE Weekend Away in October with his family…
AT THE MOMENT, SADLY, OUR RESIDENTIAL EVENTS ARE ON HOLD, DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC.
WE DO THOUGH HAVE TWO OF THESE WEEKENDS SCHEDULED FOR NEXT YEAR:
9th – 11th JULY &
15th – 17th OCTOBER
WE’LL KEEP YOU INFORMED.
HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE:
WE ARE STILL ABLE TO OFFER PASTORAL SUPPORT TO FAMILIES, WITHIN THE CURRENT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.
PLEASE GO TO OUR CONTACT US PAGE TO LET US KNOW HOW WE CAN HELP YOU.
Our fifteen-year-old young leader sent us this text before the event:
“I love being a part of the amazing things you do for families so I don’t mind giving my time up at all. I want to thank you for the wonderful opportunity you have given me to help as a young leader at treasure.
“I can’t wait for the next treasure in the summer and I’m certain it will be a spectacular weekend (as it always is) spreading the message of love and having a calm weekend for families.”
His Mum then sent us:
“Have an amazing weekend! You all are so fantastic and create such positive, life changing opportunities. You put in so much time and effort – my son loves being a part of it all.”
Feedback from the families included the following:
“It was unexpected how much I felt loved and supported by everyone”
“Treasure has been so good for my son and me – healing with support and love from strangers who now feel like family”
“There is a real sense of release and freedom”
“It has been lovely connecting with everyone and has really helped my Mum to be so much more open and happy.”
“Your love and care for all of us has been amazing”
“Treasure has helped show me how things have moved on for my son and me”
“You are good friends”
A Mum said, “It’s been so relaxing, not having to do any chores”
One of our Team told us when we met with her a month after the event, “The theme this Treasure has been particularly helpful to me. Every day I have been reminded that ‘Love is always there’”
“Folks ask me about my time at the TREASURE Weekend; I have told them that, for me, it was the happiest, most wonderful experience of my life, witnessing such harmony with families interacting with each other”
“Thank you…it was lovely to have time together as a family – just to be and to enjoy each other with no pressure from a ‘to do’ list. At the end of the weekend my husband said to me, ‘Do you realise, we’ve had a whole weekend without having to say, “Hurry up”!’”
“Thank you so much for inviting us on such an amazing experience. It truly has been one of the most beautiful and enriching times in our lives”
“Thank you both for getting us all away and giving us such a wonderful time together as a family”
“Such a relaxing and peaceful weekend! Thank you so much”
“We really appreciate your openness and willingness to listen to and value what we bring, in an affirming way”
“We have really appreciated all the attention to detail and careful consideration in all aspects of the weekend”
“It’s so great to have known you this year – one of the best things in our lives in 2015!”
“Words cannot express our gratitude; we have been so blessed by the TREASURE Weekend”
“During and following on TREASURE, all our faith has again been awakened”
“I was in a very dark place and alone, since then I’ve had so many people there for us… it all started with you two inviting us to TREASURE when we were literally alone in the world, I’ll never forget your kindness”
“This is the sort of weekend where you make life-long friends”
Another Mum told us it wasn’t until last June’s TREASURE that she fully understood that God really loved her. That perfect love has transformed her and her son.
She told us, “I have felt loved and accepted, part of a family. I love how open I felt and I just felt really special”
“We feel lifted and loved. It was perfect”
“I felt a lot more peaceful away from everything that’s going on at home”
Beccy was recommended to phone a potential new Mum. “I began to describe TREASURE and she burst into tears… so grateful to be invited, so desperate to be touched by God… I prayed with her. There are so many more Mums out there like her, desperate to know they’re loved”
“I left feeling loved, calm and peaceful”
“We spent time all together as a family; we never do that!”
“I felt overwhelmed by the love from the other families and the Team”
“I’ve been given peace, calm and a refreshing time”
“I’m less isolated, more supported; I feel loved”
