About The SCM Weekend 2017





Practical information

The SCM Weekend (“Forbundshelga”) is the social highlight of the year in SCM Norway. This year it is held October 6th-8th. True to tradition, it takes place at SCM’s old smallholding collective Haugtun in Aust-Torpa, Oppland.

The main topic for this years SCM Weekend is “Reformations of today”. Through conversations and workshops we will seek to discover which “reformations” we face today, and how they challenge us as individuals, christians and as an ecumenical community. In addition, there will of course be services, parties, good food, good company, opportunities for hikes in beautiful rural surroundings, bonfires, games and everything else that makes for a classic SCM Weekend.
