Paper, feathers, wool and plenty of marshmallows were to be found a-plenty as fifteen young people, and their leaders, from a variety of backgrounds and from churches across the district, came together in July for
This Annual Youth Event explored ‘Courageous Faith’ with workshops offered on Courageous Craftivism, Courageous Prayer, Courageous Body/Spirituality (why did the leaders think jumping jacks in this heat was a good idea?!) and Courageous Church led by our Youth President Jasmine Yeboah.
It wasn’t all workshops however, as the young people had an opportunity to show their courageous spirit by tackling height, balance and aiming skills as they took part in rock climbing, stand up paddle boarding and archery.
Of course, no youth event would be complete without worship, so in another courageous step this year, our worship took the form of two sessions of Forest Church. God was encountered through the natural beauty around us at the Mannor Adventure Centre, and our prayers were lifted on bubbles. There was even a donkey! However, heeding the young people’s feedback from last year there was no singing …..(except around the campfire!)
Overall Momentwm camp was fully enjoyed by all ……and after a little rest… we can’t wait to do it again next year!
Maybe your young people could join us!
