Seals, Charity Shops and Fakenham!

Last weekend was great as it was the Disciple weekend away. Disciple is a mid week discussion/Bible study group for Yrs 7-9 and we took ourselves off to Norfolk for a weekend of fun, excellent input from Pete and Suse and remote control cars! We played some cool games courtesy of Spiky Headed such as remote pool (pool but with foam balls and remote control cars) and making towers out of balloons. We also had retro fun playing Catchphrase.

One of the highlights for quite a few of the young people was the charity shop game where they each had £5 to buy an outfit for Saturday night from the charity shops in Fakenham. Amongst the cross dressing, they came up with some great stuff and loads of them were amazed at how far their money could stretch and what good stuff they could get. And we saw seals at the beach! They rocked.

We were thinking about Jesus over the course of the weekend and Pete led some great sessions thinking about things Jesus said and did. Two of the group made a great vox bop video recorded on a mobile phone, inspired by a video of Pete's.

The best bit is that although a number were moved by a story that was read by Pete on Saturday night, as we have regular contact with the group, I know that there can be follow up outside of the weekend setting. It is really exciting to see God working in that group. And it is exciting to see the group continuing to grow numerically as well!

PTL and thanks to Pete and Susie,.. and my mum and sister who cooked for us.
