Youth and Family Summer Camp

posted in: Notice 0

We held our first ever Youth and Family Camp this summer at Winterhead Farm, and by the end of the weekend we were planning next year’s! We had full programmes for families with under 11s and for our teenagers in Infinity, this included bushcraft led by our friends at Osprey Outdoors, a mini Olympics for the under 11s, volleyball, firepit with marshmallows and lots of time to hang out with friends in the marquee over a drink and a game.

We joined with New Wine for New Wine Kids in the morning and with Luminosity, their youth stream, for Infinity, streamed live into our top marquee. Infinity had their own worship workshop and joined the band for Saturday evening. We were very grateful to be joined by the band Randomly Collected who led us in worship. The weekend was finished off with a BBQ where friends and family came to join in.

Infinity used the weekend to raise some money to twin the toilets at our Church Centre by selling home made cakes, tuck and serving ice-creams. They raised £150 which the church had agreed to match so that made a grand total of £300 which enabled us to twin 5 toilets.

Here are some highlights from the weekend.
