18+ Weekend

An awesome experience was had by all at this year’s 18+ weekend away.

The weekend kicked off with an evening worship service in the chapel, led by singer and songwriter Rex Allchurch, who also led the worship services throughout the course of the weekend, each one bringing a fresh encounter with God that really touched people’s hearts.

Saturday was filled with various workshops including “In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day”, where we looked at the challenges of everyday life, as well as a session working with puppets, and a workshop on worship.

There was also a series of talks by Jonny Lee, the youth minister from BCC (Birmingham Christian Centre), who spoke to us about being “outliers” for Christ, standing our ground, and pursuing Christ even through the tough times.

Other activities included an organized treasure hunt, table tennis, an afternoon swim and a very late night quiz.

All in all, it was a brilliant weekend. Seeing God moving in people’s lives and feeling Him working in my own life was incredible. It was amazing to see the way in which He touched each individual. Bring on next year!
