Harvesters Catholic Men's Weekend

Harvesters is a national Catholic Men’s Network, with a desire to include men from other Christian Traditions. It seeks to encourage and equip men in their faith. Our annual weekends are a safe space for men to be refreshed in their faith. The 2020 weekend takes place on 17th-19th April at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick, Derbyshire. Further details available when booking opens in December 2019.

Time to grow in faith

Eucharist, sport, relaxation and a bar are included. Many men who have never been on such a weekend before are quite amazed at how they really relax, have a great time and meet with God.

Time to talk with other men

Time, that is, to talk in a little more depth than you might usually do. Most men, young and old feel the small groups are very valuable.

The Hayes, in Swanwick, Derbyshire, has successfully been the market leader as a Christian Conference Centre since 1911, providing residential and day conference facilities for up to 400 delegates. Accommodation comprises mainly ensuite bedrooms, and cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided at no extra charge.

Set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside with easy road, rail and air links, the Centre is well equipped to serve your conference with quality facilities, and friendly staff.

At Harvesters we enjoy The Hayes’s location and surroundings throughout the weekend, but particularly on Saturday afternoons where there is the opportunity to take part in football, cycling and – if sport isn’t your thing – other activities such as music and photography.
