Team Building

The Academy is located around various outdoor activity centres.  So once the meeting, training has ended.  The delegates are able to relax and have some fun from the Zip Wire Park to having a Splash at White Water Rafting.  Even the simplest of Team Building activities sends a message to your team - you care about their success.  Each of the different activities are designed to help them grow and develop new skills, doing this indicates that 'you' as a company is committed to its employees.


Originally called St John's Methodist Church, the building itself was built by brick in the late nineteenth century, in the Tudor Gothic style with a long-wall entry plan and polychrome string lines. 

According to Archives, The Church first opened it's doors on Friday 21st May 1880 and closed 136 years later on Sunday 27th March 2016.  The chapel was part of the English Rhyl Circuit.
