There was a lot to do, and the Pathfinders soon rampaged around the building, in and out of its nooks and crannies, discovering table tennis and table football, space outside to kick a football, comfy sofas to collapse into and chat, dorms, hidden staircases and lots more.
Soon, though, it was time for the first session, and our speaker, Nathan (from Christ Church, Mayfair), began to teach us from the Book of Jonah. Over the weekend, he gave four excellent and useful talks that took us through the whole book, demonstrating that God is in control, and that he is full of compassion and kindness to sinful people like us. It was really encouraging and challenging, and we had good times in dorm groups discussing what we had learnt, applying it and praying for one another.
The rest of the weekend was spent in a blur of eating delicious food, playing games, ice skating, watching a film and taking part in general silliness!
It was a great time, so thank you to all the leaders, Pathfinders, cooks and drivers, and most of all, thanks to God!
