We started out in the 1980’s, running christian holidays for our church. Our aim then was to provide activities and holidays for those who thought them to be beyond their budget or ability and that hasn’t changed. We now offer more holidays, but the feeling of Christian community is still a key part of everything we do. That’s why our mission statement sums us up well: ‘Affordable activity, with Jesus at the centre’.
Our team aims to generate a happy and relaxed atmosphere, which includes everyone in the fun. The mountains are an unbeatable environment for a holiday together. We always try to lay on some entertainment each night, whether we make it ourselves or go out for part of the evening.
Our aim is to provide really good value, which means a fully inclusive price, with no hidden costs, so you know what to expect. The price includes full board accommodation, travel from UK to Switzerland, insurance, instruction, ski equipment and a lift pass!
We think this is a very important ingredient for a successful holiday. We run our own catering to keep costs down and keep quality and quantity up. Everyone gets the opportunity to help out in the kitchen, under the watchful eye of our head cook, for one day of the holiday. This might include things like chopping veg, laying tables, washing-up and generally having a laugh and of course, will not mean missing any of the activities! Our holidays are built on a good food reputation so come and taste for yourself!
Enjoying being away with like-minded people is at the heart of our christian holidays. Our groups are usually between 40 to 70 people which gives an inclusive atmosphere, fellowship and friendship. For people travelling on their own, the atmosphere is always great for getting to know new people in a safe and welcoming environment. If you have friends who want to holiday with you but whose ability or energy levels differ from yours, a group holiday provides the diversity for everyone to enjoy themselves.
We invite a speaker and give time each day to worship and bible teaching, so that Christian fellowship is a natural part of the holiday. The holidays have sprung out of us running trips for our home church Gold Hill Baptist Church. Link to the website to find where we are coming from "spiritually" as well as "geographically"! We encourage folk to join with Christian people in their home areas, so http://www.findachurch.co.uk/ may help you do just that.
