What We Do
The Club holds events throughout the year; from a day on the crags in the Peak District to a winter week in Scotland. These include a number of predominantly social events, including an annual dinner. We also have a growing number of mountain bikers in our midst.
At each event we seek to set aside a time for informal discussion, Bible study, prayer or worship to help us focus on the creator of the landscape in which we find so much pleasure. There is never any pressure to attend these times and people are quite welcome not to join if they wish.
The club does not provide formal instruction in climbing or mountaineering, but our more experienced members are always more than happy to offer advice to those who want it.
Our events are variously based at mountaineering club huts, hostels, rented cottages and in the warmer months, camp sites.
We have a club newsletter sent out to members.

Our members come from all over the country, although we are understandably somewhat biased towards the hillier northern regions. Whenever possible members share transport, especially those travelling from further afield which helps keep costs down.
Non-members are welcome to attend events as guests. All we ask is that if you wish to join us on subsequent events, please apply for membership within 3 months of your first event to make sure we stay on the right side of our insurance requirements.
How Does it Work?
The Club has a Committee who are responsible for all the dull stuff – booking venues, arranging a programme, liaising with the BMC and generally keeping the rest of us in order. Even that can be fun – honest!
Activities on events are organised informally. Some members have their own fixed plans for walks or climbs and are happy for others to join them. Other members arrive with no agenda. Their plans evolve depending on the weather, other members present and how they happen to be feeling at the time. There are no organised walks but teaming up with like-minded people is seldom a problem, and event leaders always ensure that newer members are not on their own.
