Each year we have a weekend away as an opportunity of getting to know each other better.
In 2018 we visited the Horstead Centre in Norfolk. This is a great place with lots of room for the young people to move around, a games room, meeting rooms and a prayer room as well as a number of activities the centre can put on for us.
On the Friday evening, we played a game from Christian Aid that focuses on the plight of refugees and then watched a film together.
Saturday morning we were expertly supervised by the Horstead staff on their Tower Experience, all having a go at various rock climbing routes and the zip wire. In the afternoon we all went for a paddle up the river Bure. I the evening, we had a reflective session thinking about words and what they can do to us and others. Another film was watched together before heading off to our dorms.
On the Sunday we had a go at archery, including some gaining the skill of popping some balloons that were attached to the targets. After lunch we had a session thinking about what were the highs and lows of school and being praying for each other about the challenges.
We are really grateful to staff at the Horstead Centre who supervised us with the outdoor activities and provided lovely meals for us over the weekend.
