60 teens inspired at youth weekend away

Young people from the Kensington Area celebrated Pentecost together this weekend, at a youth event in the heart of the Bracknell forest, in Berkshire. Sixty teenagers from 14 different churches across the length and breadth of the Episcopal Area gathered for the first Kensington Area Youth Weekend Away.

The young people from 10 to 14 years old spent the sunny June weekend in fellowship, encountering God though worship and prayer, as well as enjoying mountain biking, archery, abseiling and rifle shooting.  The action-packed weekend, led by Bishop Paul Williams, included Bible teaching from Luke’s Gospel, centred on the parable of the Prodigal Son.

The weekend was designed to support churches in their ministry to young people and to help teenagers from across west London grow in their faith.

Area Missioner, the Reverend Ruth Bushyager, who organised the weekend, said:

“It was a huge privilege to get to know such a diverse and wonderful group of young disciples. We pray the weekend will strengthen their faith and be a great encouragement as they seek to live for Christ in their schools and communities. I am glad to say there is high demand for us to run it again next year!”

The weekend could not have happened without a team of 22 leaders composed of ordinands from St Mellitus college, Bishop’s Interns and church youth workers from across the Kensington Area.
