We are very excited about our upcoming student retreat WALK ON WATER. The Ugolini’s, who lead our Glasgow church, will be calling us out of our comfort zones and towards faithfully following Jesus. We hope as many as possible will be able to join us for what is going to be an incredible weekend.

Cara and Paolo Ugolini became Christians in 1998 and 1999, respectively, while studying at the University of Maryland, USA. Paolo went on to attend American University Washington College of Law, while Cara worked for the church in youth ministry, before working for a non-profit organisation devoted to raising awareness for a rare disease. They married in 2002 and in 2004, God opened the door for them to enter the full-time ministry in the Montgomery County Church of Christ (in suburban Washington D.C.). Over the next 10 years they served in a variety of ministry roles – youth and family, campus, region leaders, and teaching – before taking up a new adventure in 2015 in Glasgow, Scotland along with their 3 children: Matteo, Natalia and Santina.


Smallwood Manor is a country house set in 50 acres of the beautiful Staffordshire countryside. During the week it is home to a local school but at weekends opens its doors to groups wishing to have some time away together. We have held student retreats at Smallwood Manor for many years, a special home from home for us! Accommodation is dormitory style. Duvets and pillow are provided – you must bring your own duvet covers, pillow case, sheets & towels.
