A Harvesters Men’s Weekend aims to provide men with an opportunity to reconnect with God, themselves and other men in a safe, varied and inclusive way. 

We try to cater for all, regardless of denomination, personality or sporting prowess. 

Therefore during the weekend we offer the opportunity to partake in the following activities:

Praise & Worship

Speaker talks


Small group sessions

Free time to play sport, music, or rest

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner


The timings vary slightly each year dependent upon speakers and workshops, but the structure of the weekend is as follows:

Friday – Registration from 4pm, dinner 6pm, evening session 8pm-10pm

Saturday – 9am-10pm

Sunday – 9am-1pm

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.
