Soul Survivor success

This year saw the first diocesan host camp area at Soul Survivor.   More than 30 young people from across the region had the chance to join with others to enjoy the event.

The camp was a pilot exercise, aimed at ones and two’s, aged 13 to 19 from churches who were not in a position to organise going to Soul Survivor themselves.

“We felt this was very important as all too often young people miss out on the larger gatherings like Soul Survivor as they don’t have a paid leader to organise it, or because they don’t have other young Christians to go with. Our hope was to bring all the ones and two’s together and form a small community at Soul Survivor alongside 8,000 other young people. And with God’s grace we did it!!” said Tony Cook, Youth Advisor for the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

The core team will be meeting to evaluate the 2015 camp and the whole group will be reunited in November to listen to the young people and to God, to see if it is right for us to do the Soul Survivor camp again in 2016.

Feedback from Soul Survivor

I thought it was great! So much freedom and great to meet new people instead of your own little group!
Had an absolutely amazing time that I will never forget, wonderful.
First great year here, really welcome. Everyone is awesome and I can’t wait to come next year too!
As this was the first time doing something like this – I believe that it has worked very well. Youth from different backgrounds and churches have come together to have a wonderful time. I feel the youth and leaders have built either new or stronger relationships.
