Gatherings

Summer Nights At The Farms

Sundays, 6:15 p.m.

June 24 – September 2

Simsbury Farms, 100 Old Farms Rd.

 

Summer Nights is a series of outdoor worship gatherings that will occur during the summer months at Simsbury Farms -- 100 Old Farms Road, Simsbury. On the last Sunday of each month, we’ll gather at the pool. All other nights will meet under the covered rink. During “pool” nights, please join us for swimming, games, a worship band and teaching -- all at the pool from 6:15-8:15p. On “rink” nights, we’ll gather for worship, teaching, and kid breakouts from 6:15 – 7:30p. Simsbury Farms is also a great place to gathering beforehand for picnics, playgrounds, or to get a round of golf in before worship. All are welcome!

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

o   What do I need to bring? Is there a cost?

  • There is no charge to enter the facility. We have rented it. There are metal stacking chairs provided for the worship gathering in the rink, however, those are limited. Thus, we encourage individuals or families to bring a camp or lawn chair. A blanket for kids to sit on is fine also, however, please note that the rink has a concrete floor.

o   Will there be food at the gatherings?

  • Pool: There will be drinks and munchies provided, but dinner food will not be served. Please bring your own picnic dinner if you would like to eat.
  • Rink: The worship service will begin at 6:15 p.m. Complementary drinks will be available. Individuals or families can picnic together beforehand. Please bring your own food.

o   What is the plan for children?

  • Pool: There will be no childcare offered at the pool. However, the pool is fully equipped for kids of all ages -- a baby pool, a 3-foot pool, a diving pool, and a lap pool. Parents should supervise their children. Lifeguards from Simsbury Farms will guard the pools.
  • Rink: There will be two separate environments for kids. Look for a big sign that says “Children” when you arrive and check your kids in there. A “Baby-Preschool” environment will be setup in the main lobby area. A second environment for Kindergarten-Grade 5 (k-5), will occur during the teaching time (after the worship band finishes). Jillian Conway, our children’s ministry coordinator and her team, will oversee this environment in one of the warming room’s next to the rink. All children’s workers have gone through our “kid-safe process and training” and are well-known and trusted by our team. 

o   What if I don’t swim?

  • Many of us will not be swimming. During pool nights, come enjoy the fresh air, get to know others, enjoy some dinner, or just get ready to worship. The worship time at the pool will begin around 7:20 p.m.

o   Is the pool and rink handicap accessible?

  • Yes. All facilities are accessible and there is a lift at the pool. Please check in with the lifeguards.
