Frequently Asked Questions
We will be releasing more information about the weekend as it approaches but we hope the FAQs below are helpful at the start of the booking process. If you have any further questions email Jude on email@example.com for more information.
Is it possible to know the schedule in advance?
The schedule will be sent to you at a later date but arrival and end times are explained in the booking section on the previous page.
Does the hotel cater for different dietary requirements?
Yes, when you book on the weekend you will be asked to let us know any specific dietary requirements and we will pass these on to the hotel Chef and their team.
What free time will I get across the weekend?
The weekend will include planned times for relaxing and socialising including entertainment on Saturday evening. A range of activities will also be available on Saturday afternoon but everything will be optional. Here is a Local guide to some activities near the hotel! We will also be revealing some options as the weekend draws closer.
I'm introverted, how will I survive the weekend?
The schedule includes free time for those who are more introverted to have space for stillness and quiet. We want to help you connect with God and with the St Dionis community, so with that in mind we have considered a range of ways you can do that across the weekend!
We also factor this in with room allocation too and have some single occupancy rooms (Available for an additional cost) please contact Jude at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details
How can I travel to the venue?
The hotel is so easy to get to and from London! Below are the three ways to arrive at the venue. NB: St Dionis does not organise transport to and from the venue so please make your own way. For more information about the venue, please click here for their website.
Egham (EGH) station is just 3 miles from the hotel, with connections to London Waterloo and Reading. Windsor & Eton Riverside (WNR) station and Windsor & Eton Central (WNC) station are also nearby.
De Vere Beaumont Estate is easily accessible from the M3, M4, and M25. Use the following navigation coordinates (51.449394, -0.575441) and postcode (SL4 2JJ) to find the hotel. Parking is free for all guests.
What time do we need to be there on the Friday?
Please arrive on Friday afternoon from 5pm (Friday 26 January). The venue has been chosen to minimise travelling time from London so that people won’t need to arrive too late after work. A hot buffet supper will run from 5.30 - 8pm with the first evening session starting straight after this.
What happens if I haven't been before?
During the weekend, there are many opportunities for organised groups so you won't be unknown for very long. The weekend away is an amazing time to get to know others very quickly. If you have any further questions or concerns, contact Jude on email@example.com and she will be able to answer them for you!
What facilities are there at the venue?
The hotel facilities include a indoor swimming pool, fully equipped gym, tennis courts, an outdoor play area and 40 acres of parkland grounds. All these are free to use though please note that children will need supervision in certain areas. Children/Youth under 16 years old will need to be accompanied by an adult. (Max 3 children per adult)
We will also have additional activities available during the Saturday afternoon 'free time' slot. Watch this space as they are revealed!
In addition to our conference centre and the restaurant, there is also a bar and lounge to use in the evenings/free time.
Free, superfast Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and up to 100m within the grounds.
How far away is my room?
The bedrooms are a short walk (3-5 minutes) from our main conference space which gives more time for conversation and community. If you need an accessible room please contact Jude on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We recommend bringing a day bag for your bible, notepad, mug and water bottle!
What time will it finish on Sunday?
The weekend will end with a family service on the Sunday followed by a buffet lunch running from 1 - 2.30pm then pack down and departure.
How will people know who I am?
The return of the lanyard! Everyone will be required to wear a lanyard which has their name on it (and the timetable of the weekend)!
