Weekend Away

St Matthew’s Youth descend on Ledbury.

On the last weekend of September, 11 Youth and an assortment of “peer” or “old” leaders headed out for a weekend with a difference. The obligatory pizza and film evening was preceded by a most glorious sunset on our arrival.

Everyone was up bright and early on Saturday morning and some of the many highlights of the day included:

• Carpool Karaoke 
•Scavenger hunt & Photo competition in the Malverns.

 

 

• Film character evening meal. How many of either the films or characters can you identify?

 

 

 

 

• The perfect end to the day…( no youth were harmed in the search of marshmallow perfection!)

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday dawned and after yet more fantastic food and varying amounts of effort with cleaning up we packed up and headed home.

 

 

 

The theme of the weekend was ‘Heroes or Role Models?’ Three sessions, spread across two days, gave us the opportunity to reflect, worship, spend time with God, and explore the following ideas:

• What’s the difference between a hero or role model?
• How do we get the right people to influence us?
• How do we use our considerable gifts and talents to impact the world around us?

Where to next?
