Each September, over 100 CHESS member families meet together for a week full of activities and encouragement at Cefn Lea Christian conference centre & Holiday park! Heaps of fun, great conversations and sharing times, and probably more scooters than you’ve ever seen in one place!!


All activities are provided by CHESS member families on a volunteer basis, and range from simple small prayers groups, bible studies, sports events, social evenings, to larger worship events.

If you dont find an activity/ies that suit you why not you and your family volunteer to run one yourselves.  We are always open for families to share new ways to express and share their love of God and others.


There is a wide range of accommodation on site from Ensuite Chalets to Camping options.  Please see accommodation costs here.


In addition to the cost of accomodation, evening meals can also be purchased.  Meals are provided in a large dinning style setting where families can share fellowship and food with one another.  Special diet requirements can be catered for by the kitchen.  Own catering on site is also fine using the small kitchens inside the leisure homes/chalets or your own facilities if camping.


Booking requests for the annual holiday will be open to all members via a link on an email sent to all members from October in the preceeding year.  We do our best to accomodate all member families but sometimes due to numbers families might miss out.
