Our Annual Rhythm

Each year is divided into 4 terms corresponding to the 4 seasons of the year; there are breaks in between and the summer term is entirely free from studies.

We love to celebrate at Outreach House so the year’s full of special days. Easter and Christmas are very precious to us as we remember who Jesus is and that he came to save us for Real Life. We love Ash Wednesday and our candlelight ‘ashing’ service when we rededicate ourselves to God; Shrove Tuesday means pancakes galore. Team birthdays are the chance for whatever birthday girl/ boy wants – as diverse as the team. Each time we finish a book of the Bible we do something special: we marvelled after Job with a visit to the zoo; Kings we celebrated with a feast; Nehemiah… well, there are always walls around the place needing to be rebuilt!
