Staff day out to Norwich – May 2019

Capturing a glorious and sunny day in May, the annual staff day out to the hidden gem of Norwich was an amazing success and enjoyed by the whole Church Growth Trust staff team.

The day commenced with gathering at Peterborough train station and enjoying a relaxed time together travelling to Norwich.

After enjoying some delicious cakes with morning coffee and tea, we set off exploring one of the self-guided tours of the city and being amazed by the history, the variance of styles and stories linked with the city.

We decided that to not to be constrained by time that we would not book anything but just enjoy all we could fit in within the day.

With interesting buildings, views and alleys we explored the amazing city in a depth that we never anticipated.

The overwhelming feedback from staff was that this was that Norwich is a great city, well worth another visit. Who knows, this could the destination for the 2020 Church Growth Trust away day!! The staff were also enthusiastic about having spent a day together, enjoying each other’s company and relaxing. Giles Arnold, Church Growth Trust’s Chief Executive, commented: “It was lovely to see the whole team enjoying some time off. They work incredibly hard and are so committed to the work of Church Growth Trust. I love the way we all get on so well, at work and at play! I am looking forward to the next day out”.
