It is always a great time together, greatly anticipated by all involved and this occasion was no exception! John Ash, a Curate at St Michael’s Chester Square came and spoke to us from Revelation 20-22. We were all (leaders included!) incredibly challenged about what it means to live expectantly for Jesus’ return, not caught up in worldly striving because of the hope of what is yet to come in the new creation. We were reminded of the importance of being Bible people, being thirsty for heaven and encouraged to pray with great anticipation for Christ’s return.
As well as learning lots, we enjoyed an afternoon of outdoor activities, wide games in the woods, A LOT of cake and many games of signs…
Do be praying for all who were there, that we would really put all we learnt into practice beyond the weekend and not lose sight of this future hope amidst the busyness of everyday life.
