We love to take our Encrypt and Pathfinders groups out on Weekends Away and to the Summer Venture camps. Life is so busy for most young people, and there are so many distractions and diversions all the time. These times away give crucial space and time to the young people so that they can actually think about who Jesus is, or how their relationship with God is going. It’s very helpful to be removed from the normal context of life for a time, so as to be able to focus and really consider these things. As leaders, we want to encourage the young people, point them to Jesus, and spur them on to follow and love him. Sadly the Pathfinders Weekend Away is full now, but there’s plenty of room on both Ventures, so do sign up if you’re the right age, or encourage someone who is if you’re not! Most of all, please keep praying for the young people and for these events.
