The Banda

Lovely cabin for a retreat, romantic weekend or small family getaway


Patrick Weld particularly works with the schools who visit.

Scripture Union will be running online versions of many of the holidays in 2021, but have decided, with regret, that the usual residential format is untenable under Covid-19 regulations. The team is working hard to put on some short family holidays. Other last-minute holidays for children may run if restrictions are lifted further. Details will be posted here as soon as they are available.

Prayer of the month

Each month the Trustees will post a prayer here. Please join with us in an act of fellowship and commitment.

Heavenly Father – we thank you for Great Wood and pray for the site as it has a sabbatical from normal activity.  We pray for Andy as he handles the day to day care – please be close to him.  Please be with Patrick and the team from Kilve as they try to work out how best to respond to the latest C-19 guidance.  Finally we remember Scripture Union and pray for wisdom for the team at head office as well as the leadership of the individual SU camps.  Thank you that you know each one and please guide everyone in the decisions that are made for activities over the course of the year.  We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen
