Each year, the community of St Laurence gathers together for a weekend of worship, teaching, food & fun. It's a great opportunity to get to know one another better, to build deeper relationships and to be encouraged in your journey of faith - we would love it if you'd join us! 


This year, Church Camp will be taking place Fri 23rd-Sun 25th June 2017


Due to a lack of availability at Youlbury Scout Camp, our usual venue, this year Church Camp will look a bit different. We will be having a stay-cation, St Laurence style!

@ St Laurence Church, Friar Street, Reading, RG1 1DA.

Whilst it’s a shame that we won’t get to go away this year and are aware of the drawbacks of a home location, we hope there might be some practical benefits of being at St Laurence too and we are still really excited to see what God wants to do as we gather together during this time. We will do our best to make the space look very different and even more beautiful and inviting, so it’s church but not as you know it! We want to encourage everyone to come to as much as they are able to and would please ask that you commit to being here avoiding the temptation to duck into town instead.   


Chris Lane from Langworthy Community Church, Salford is very kindly coming to speak to us on the theme of Jubilee from Luke 4 and will explore the subjects of money & possessions, community & freedom . He will be joined by his wife, Esther and their children as well as some of the members of their church community. We are really excited to hear what God might be wanting to say to us as a community through Chris.
