•Soul Survivor:

Some of us went to Soul Survivor last year and we plan to go again in Summer 2017. It’s a Christian festival designed specifically for young people, with a jam packed programme so you won’t get bored! We sleep in tents and cook our own food, plus it’s a great chance to hang out with friends, meet new people & grow in your faith. There are several Cafés on site, loads of workshops to go to & plenty of space for you to chill out with friends in the afternoon. In the evenings you can go to the Cinema, a gig, a sports venue, or chat to friends in one of the Cafés. Plus, there are two meetings in the Big Top each day – where you’ll get to worship God & understand the Christian faith & life a bit better. Lots of laughs guaranteed!

More information about Soul Survivor can be found on their website.
