Five of our young people attended the Summer Madness festival in Glenarm at the beginning of July. In all there were approximately 1500 people in attendance from all over Ireland. The camping was a bit drier this year. Once up in the morning, there was lots to do. Each day started with a session in the Big Top followed by a host of activities (seminars, sports events and even sailing) After tea, which was once again cooked and supplied by Connor diocese under the watchful eye of Rev Mark Taylor, we benefited from an evening session in the Big Top. It was a great occasion when all involved grew in their faith and were challenged to live as disciples of Jesus. One of the favourite late evening events was the UV disco party following the Big Top. Thank you to the Select Vestry who once again subsidised the cost of the tickets. God willing, we will be there again next year.
and in many ways. All our kids are now off school and raring to go for their summer holidays. For all you lucky ones heading away this summer, we hope you have a brilliant time away.
If you’re staying a little closer to home this summer there are a few big events on to choose from.
Summer Madness @ Glenarm started today and some of our young folk will be there again this year. It’s on until the 4th July with plenty of seminars, workshops and fun activities so why not head on over for a visit.
Following soon after summer madness is New Wine down in Sligo. It’s running from 9th – 14th of July and is well worth the trip.
Then in August we have New Horizon up in Coleraine running from the 5th – 11th in the university campus. This is another excellent week of Bible teaching, praise and worship.
And last, but by no means least it’s our very own Big FAB Holiday Club! Back again after its break last year it’s running from 21st – 25th of August. Check out the event page here for more details closer to the time.
