Focus is our Annual Church Holiday and we would love for you to join us this year. We will be joining with the rest of the churches in the HTB network for a week of worship, teaching and fellowship. Last year nearly 7500 people were there and this year there looks set to be even more! 


Focus 2017 will be returning to the fabulous Somerley Estate, which is a 7,000-acre private estate in Ringwood at the heart of the New Forest. It's just 20 minutes from Bournemouth and 2 hours from London (via the M3) and is overflowing with space.
