Root Hill 2020 22-29 August

Root Hill is GBM’s summer youth camp for 16-25 year olds that takes place in the Surrey hills, a spiritual oasis for many young people, helping them grow in their Christian lives. The Bible and mission are central to our week together.


Our speaker this year is Neil Richardson. Neil grew up in a Christian family where he came to faith. His sister is a missionary in Asia. Neil studied at UCL and King’s London. Since 2014, he has lived in Croydon, serving on a council estate at Longheath Church. He loves Jesus, learning and teaching the Bible, reading, exercise, board games and banter.


This year our week together will focus on the glory of God and the enjoyment of life. In a world dedicated to the pursuit of money, sex and power, how do we live for the glory of God and enjoy life as intended? Focussing on Ephesians 4-6, Neil will take us through Paul’s guide to the Christian life, looking at how the gospel of God’s grace redeems every area of our lives: our mind and attitudes, our thinking, our truthfulness, our sexuality, and our work in the battles of the Christian life.


Every day there will be morning and evening meetings where we will be engaging with what God’s Word has to say about our lives and the culture that we live in. We also organise activities such as walks, trips to the beach, laserquest, bowling and the like.


Large dormitory tents are provided or you can bring your own tent or share with a friend. This is a fully catered camp. All meals and the meetings take place in the main barn. The barn also has sofas and armchairs where you can sit and chill, and we run a tuck shop. There is a snooker room, table tennis, football, bouncy castles, go-carts and trampolines onsite. There are hot showers, microwaves, washing machines, tumble driers and charge point for your phone as well.

Full details, including the camp ethos and terms and conditions, can be found in the brochure.


Bookings are open now. There is an early bird discount up until the end of May and if you’re willing to come and be a helper then you can pay even less.


You can book online or by posting in a booking form with your deposit.
