This is a very warm invitation to our church community to go camping!
A key element is the sheer opportunity of being together, and hanging out in a very relaxed way. Whether we are morning or evening at St George's, single or with a large tribe, friends with Abraham and the apostles all our lives or pretty ambivalent about faith - come and contribute to our shared life together.
We do have some pretty spectacular speakers:
- Matthew Frost used to be CEO of Tearfund and has just completed a bit of work for Archbishop Justin Welby and the General Synod (parliament) of the Church of England, which has been described as the most revolutionary since the Reformation;
- Andy Piercy used to be part of Earth, Wind and Fire (for anyone who can remember that far back), then headed up worship at HTB, and now trains worship leaders in the US and the UK. He specialises in helping traditional churches and more contemporary churches learn from each other in their worship;
- Annie McTighe is a pioneer minister on the Olympic Park, and one of the most creative and effective priests at working with communities without a church building.
There is plenty of space outside the main sessions, children's work provided, opportunity for prayer, fun activities, barbecues or just relaxing.
We really hope you can come! We are going for a relaxed, camping kind of feel. Costs are low (but please don't let expense keep you and your family away), facilities are simple but more than adequate (with optional upgrades for those who would prefer), and it should be a lot of fun. And the sun should be shining…
See you there!
