Bassenfell Manor has been a Christian Centre in the Lake District since 1983 and it is owned by the Christian Outdoor Pursuits Trust, a registered charity. It has been providing lake district accommodation and outdoor adventures with the aim of helping people grow in their relationship with God. Since the beginning it has relied upon the support of friends and both the management and trustees place a very high value on prayer and other support which 'Friends of Bassenfell' give.
Becoming a 'Friend of Bassenfell' enables you to link in with:
Prayer: Bassenfell Manor is not only a physical provider of accommodation and activities, but it is a centre where people can meet with God, and grow in their relationship with Him. We believe in a God who loves to answer prayer offered in Jesus' name, and prayer is the engine room for Bassenfell bearing fruit for the kingdom of God. Becoming a 'Friend of Bassenfell' allows you to keep in touch with what's going on, so that you can effectively pray for the work here. Every three months a prayer update is sent out by post or email (saving costs).
Time and talents: are used for blessing users of Bassenfell by serving them on holidays, and helping keep the Manor maintained, decorated and cleaned to a high standard. In the past Bassenfell has relied upon volunteer walk leaders, outdoor instructors, decorators, joiners, plumbers, seamstresses, cleaners, gardeners and builders. If you have a particular talent or just enjoy hard work, and would like to serve by helping at Bassenfell, then please become a friend and discuss with the management how you would like to help.
Donations: Money paid by groups staying at Bassenfell Manor covers our day to day running costs. However the funding for our Bassenfell Community Worker and any major repair work or projects usually has to come from the generous donations of our 'Friends of Bassenfell'. Please prayerfully consider contributing to the Trust, to enable further enhancements to Bassenfell Manor, and the ministry of Christian Outdoor Pursuits Trust.
