What is Focus?

Focus is a holiday like no other, set on the Somerly Estate, a beautiful, spacious location in the New Forest.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for us go away together as a church, and at Focus 2018 we would love for you to join us! We’ll be joining over 7,000 others from across the country for a week of world-class teaching, BBQs, worship, food stalls, sports and creative sessions, an outdoor cinema, Kids, Youth and Student programmes, Out of Focus parties, not to mention the walled garden… there’s something for everyone!

Booking for Focus 2018 is now open.
Experience something extraordinary this summer. Join us at Focus!

Travel and Accommodation

Once you get nearer to the Somerley Estate, there will be AA road signs to help get you there. Please arrive via GUEST ENTRANCE on Nea Drive. Guests are welcome to arrive from 3.00pm on Thursday 26 July. The first big top celebration will be on Friday evening and Kids and Youth groups will start on Saturday morning.

Last year we enjoyed driving down in groups and you can also get to Focus by train to Bournemouth and flights to Southampton.

When you book on be sure to select St George’s Gateshead as your church because we’re all camping together in the St George’s Village! We’d love to have as many people as possible as we spend this amazing week together with our tents, chill out space, BBQs and catered breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 Meal Deal

We love being part of our great, big family and what better way to grow in friendship and community than by sharing great food and time together?

This year we will have a catered meal deal! We are offering breakfast, lunch and dinner from Thursday evening to Tuesday lunchtime for £20 per person and you can sign up for that on Churchsuite.
