A different destination for 2018

Each year we move to a different destination with the Alpine Bible Week and this year we will be based in Switzerland. We retain the essential ingredients of this holiday - clear Bible teaching and beautiful mountain scenery, as we stay in a mountain centre in a region known as Heidiland, a beautiful world of mountains, valleys, caves and waterfalls. 

Our accommodation is on a sunny terrace in the mountains above Lake Walen with awe-inspiring views. Footpaths start close to our accommodation and there are also cable cars to take you to crystal clear alpine lakes and vast pastures. 

 

Study the Bible in the mountains

The Alpine Bible Week is an opportunity for us to break out of the bustle of everyday life to study the Bible against the glorious backdrop of the mountains. Our greatest need in life is to know God. God is not silent and hiding: he speaks to us every day through the Bible, through his people and through the magnificence of his creation. Yet we may find it hard to hear him, because of a thousand other voices shouting for our attention and time. We take time to explore the Bible in more depth and detail than we would manage in our normal lives.
 

An excellent speaker

Andy Robinson has spoken at many Oak Hall events and always opens up the Bible with great clarity. This year we are coming to the heart of the Christian message - the death and resurrection of Jesus in the last eight chapters of John’s gospel. Many of us will have a basic idea of why Jesus died and rose, but we want to dig deeper to see the full richness of what he has achieved. We’ll also see him preparing his disciples for life after he has gone to heaven, which is so relevant to us because it is the life we have today.

 
 
"Excellent Bible teaching and a lovely group of people!"

Explore beautiful surroundings

Each morning and evening Eddie will give a talk and there will be time to praise God with singing. There will also be opportunities to discuss how the truths we are learning shape our minds, hearts and our lifestyles. In the afternoons we will have time to walk in the beautiful surroundings, talking about what we have learnt, letting it sink into our souls and being awed by the majesty of God’s creation.

Our optional excursion package takes us to explore this beautiful region with one full day excursion, and an afternoon excursion.

 

A day exploring the lake

Our full day excursion a spectacular cable car ride takes us down the mountain to Lake Walen. From here, we take a lake cruise, crossing to Quinten, a peaceful settlement that can only be reached by boat. It is a beautiful place to stop at the café for coffee and cake. We also visit Au and Weesen, with options to walk between stops or take the boat. 


 

Relaxing afternoons

Another afternoon we travel by cable car and train to Bad Ragaz, an attractive town with interesting shops and cafés. It is known for its impressive thermal spa, or for a more active option there is a stunning walk through the gorge.

On the other afternoons the team will be available with ideas of things to do - there will be time to explore the local walks and towns, hire a bike, ride on the toboggan or rest and reflect on the things we've learnt. 

 
 

Join us this summer and return home refreshed by the grandeur of God revealed both through the Bible and the majesty of the mountains.
