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

Eddie Larkman is an experienced Bible teacher. He is also the pastor of a church and is involved in training ministers overseas. This year, we will be exploring the book of Ephesians, which Eddie describes as manageable in size, but massive in vision and mighty in power!

Ephesians puts on display God’s eternal purpose to create a new society in Jesus Christ by the power of His Spirit, for the praise of His glory. Here we see how God restores a broken world through the gospel, renewing our relationship with Him and with one another. This is a book full of Christ and therefore of good news, with power to transform us!

 
 
"I enjoyed every aspect of it, from the talks, to the visits, and the activities in the evening."
Ian, Aug 2017

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, our 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

For 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. 

 
 

Remarkably affordable...

The Oak Hall team will be providing us with three meals a day. We invite you to join in the fun and teamwork, making our time here remarkably affordable.

Our simple but comfortable mountain lodgings provide rooms for two (with options for three or more people also available). Showers and toilets are located on each floor. A limited number of en-suite rooms for two are available at a supplement of £38 per person.

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