Church Group weekends away in Scotland

"The Abernethy Centre is amazing!  Fantastic conference facilities, an utterly beautiful location, and a fabulously and friendly staff.  I speak in hundreds of venues all across the country but speaking at Abernethy was one of my favourite experiences.  I would highly and wholeheartedly recommend them." – Dr. Andy Bannister, Solas Centre for Public Christianity

Abernethy is a Christian organisation.  This means that the staff team are Christians and the reason we do what we do is to glorify God and make disciples.  As a Church group visiting one of our centres, we hope that you will recognise in our team a servant heart and a desire to offer you the best experience possible during your stay.

Church groups that visit us opt for a wide range of programmes, from a full activity package with our team members organising and presenting evening worship sessions, to simply a full board package with no activities and no evening input.  We have AV facilities for you to use and a choice of meeting rooms to suit your group.  If you have a group of mixed ages it is easy for some of the group to opt into an activity programme while others choose not to take part and the price will vary acordingly. 

Each Abernethy centre has links with its local parish church and we can provide transport for you to attend church on the Sunday if you wish.

Church groups that visit our centres include:

  • Alpha weekend groups - click HERE to see a sample programme
  • House groups
  • Mens / Womens weekends
  • Family groups
  • Youth groups
  • Leadership teams
  • Christian Unions and student groups

We also offer a range of options if you would like to join us as an individual or a small group attending one of our centres:

“Really appreciated the food and the staff are FAB!”.  Deeside Christian Fellowship

"Following a fantastic weekend, I just wanted to pass on a huge thank you to the whole team. We had a relaxing weekend full of fun, laughter and spending time in God's presence. Each and every one of you- (not forgetting the staff that works behind the scene!) were all brilliant and we had a great time. A huge thank you for all the planning, hard work, patience with our indecisiveness and tardiness, friendly smiles, banter, valuable chats, delicious meals a neat and tidy place to stay, not to mention a beautiful cake for Rachel's 18th! I'm sure I'm forgetting lots of other things that you do, but we are thankful for everyone's commitment to their job and serving God in doing so. Hope to see you all in future, God Bless".  Alicea Westhill Episcopal Church
