Booking Now open
The VCF weekend offers an opportunity to meet and and share with others who share that common bond of an interest or passion for Jesus combined with a heart for the veterinary profession. It offers a place where the two can be understood to work together for God’s glory and purpose.
The weekend offers a unique opportunity for everyone to come together in a relaxed, informal way, to ask questions and to have space and time to consider how we share Christ’s love in the veterinary world in the ministry that he has given to each one of us. It also offers the chance to find “Paul’s” to mentor and support us on our journey, and to find “Timothy’s” that we in turn can help and support on theirs.
This year we will be welcoming our guest speakers Bob and Jan Trelogan. Many of you will have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know them, and Bob wrote his testimony in the June 2021 issue of the VCF News.
The weekend will be a blended weekend with those unable to be there we will be running part of the weekend online as we are aware that attending in person may not be possible for some, perhaps because they live overseas or are constrained by work, duties and other commitments. So following the success of last year’s VCF Weekend on Zoom, there will once again be an online component to the Weekend. We are very much looking forward to welcoming those who are unable to join us in person.

As we are all aware, we are still living in very uncertain times due to Covid. Please be assured that we will follow whatever guidelines are in place at the time of the VCF weekend. If the in person element of the weekend needs to be cancelled, we will refund all accommodation fees, and the weekend will run online only. If you are unable to attend, a full refund will be given if you cancel more than 24 hours beforehand. Please pray with us as we plan the weekend.
