soul survivor 2010 mike’s intro Intro Info

We hope you’ve arrived safe and sound! If you’ve never been to a Soul Survivor event before then we’re really glad you’re here and we’re sure you’ll feel right at home in no time. My name is Mike and if you come along to our main celebrations you’ll probably see me (I’m the big Greek one). If you’ve been before then welcome back… it’s brilliant to see you again. Every year I sit down and write this opening letter and every year I’m amazed by God’s grace and love. Looking back over the time since Soul Survivor started we’ve seen God work incredibly in people’s lives. People have been healed, freed, saved… it’s amazing! I often ask questions like ‘How on earth has God bought us this far?’ I’m a 50(ish) year-old bloke who likes lamb kleftikoff and weird shirts. The others who help me lead it aren’t that different either. Crofty reads more than he talks and Ali only talks about her little baby!

by him and see the world changed because of him. We long for you to live lives that bring him glory and put others first. We long for you to know him for yourselves. As usual our main meetings will feature loads of time to worship and draw near to God. We’ll spend a while looking into the Bible God’s word - and waiting on his Spirit, praying for each other to be healed, empowered and equipped to be more like him. Our hope is that God meets and changes us during these times and that this week encourages you to seek him with all you have!

Soul Survivor definitely hasn’t been going this long because of us lot! The point – and we hope you pick this up whilst you’re with us – is that God is our reason. Jesus is the one that all this is about. That’s not to say we don’t get in the way sometimes, but our hope with Soul Survivor is to help you focus on Jesus and then make sure we get out of the way! We love Jesus. We long to meet with him, be changed

Plus, and this is a big old plus, we are launching something very special this summer. We love God’s word, the Bible. It is the best thing to read and act on if you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus. So, we thought, why don’t we read it all together throughout the year! We’re launching ‘The Soul Survivor Bible In One Year’ whilst you’re with us and are pretty excited about the prospect

of working through daily readings with thousands of you! There is loads more about this on page 96 and we’ll mention it in the main meetings, but this is a little heads up to get you as excited as we are! Beyond the main meetings we have some pretty exciting stuff happening this year. There are a mass of venues to keep you busy, with everything from a two screen cinema to our resident cheesy night club, Mr Boogies! There are more cafes than you can shake a stick at, a Gig every night, an urban music venue hosted by 29th Chapter, a full sports programme and for the second year running, the Get Out social action and evangelism afternoons hosted by YWAM! I get tired just thinking about it all! Anyway, see you around during the week, we hope you have an amazing time.

Mike

Uh oh. This is serious, but don’t worry, we’re told there’s a remedy. Somehow when you’re at Soul Survivor a week is only 5 days. It’s like being on Mars or something, though we’ve never been to Mars so couldn’t say for sure. Anyway, losing two days from a week is a pretty confusing situation to be faced with, but don’t panic! To help we’ve just scrapped the conventional names of days in favour of numbers. See below to work out what we mean!

soul survivor 2010 our story Intro Info

There was this man called Jesus. In fact he wasn’t just a man. He was God. He was born over 2000 years ago in a little backwater of the Roman Empire. We don’t know too much about his childhood (except for that bit on his birth and the story about him giving his parents a panic by staying behind in the Temple), but we do know that in his late twenties/early thirties he started talking about God… a lot. He said that God was near, that things could be different and that God was a loving and compassionate Father. But he didn’t just say cool stuff. He did cool stuff. He healed people, walked on water and transformed those he met from the inside out. There’s more too. He lived a perfect life, was totally innocent, but was killed. Important people were challenged and threatened by him, but his death wasn’t the end. He rose from the grave, and in doing so, the world was forever changed. You know all that mess in our lives that gets in the way of us and God? Well he dealt with it, once and for all. Because of Jesus, we can now be in

a relationship with God forever. Good story right? Well, at Soul Survivor that’s our story, or at least where our story begins. You’re part of this story too. The point of this event - and the previous 17 years of summer events we’ve been running – is to learn more about Jesus. We want to do the things he said and did. We want to get to know and bring glory to the Father God he revealed to us all. We’re desperate to know Jesus better, to follow him better and introduce others to him too. That’s it, there’s nothing special about Soul Survivor. We hope there’s no hype and we definitely don’t have all the answers, but we always try to keep it about Jesus. In short, he’s our story. Other than trying to get to know Jesus more, you might notice that we’re not too organized, like to have a laugh and muck about a bit. Sorry if you don’t get our sense of humour straight away… we promise it’ll grow on you.

Who is Soul Survivor?

Soul Survivor is a bit of a family. There are around twenty of us who work for Soul Survivor and people do all sorts of stuff from organizing events (like the one you’re at) to writing words (like the ones you’re reading). Some of us help lead the main sessions (like Beth & Andy, who are also married… ahhh) whilst others of us drive fork lift trucks and play with two-way radios. A chap called Mike is one of our Directors and he generally leads things and comes up with the ideas. Then there’s a lovely lady called Liz who, with the rest of the team, sets about making those ideas happen. We’re a charity that’s been going since 1993, we all love Jesus and are all desperate to see Jesus work in people’s lives.

For more information on Soul Survivor just check out our website. You can even see the faces of all the current team members if you look hard enough.

soul survivor 2010 wait. i’m confused Intro Info

We’re all a bit confused about stuff. For example, who on earth knows how wireless internet works? How do the pictures go invisibly through the air? Weird isn’t it? It’s kind of like the future, but now. Anyway, unlike the secrets of wireless technology, below we’ve spelt out, very simply indeed, the general Soul Survivor day plan, so there’s no need to be confused when you’re with us! It’s easy peasey like lemon squeezy. Hang on, what’s ‘lemon squeezy’? Uh oh, we’re confused again.

8.30am Wake up sleepy head! Crawl out of your tent, slap a kettle on the stove, make a brew and settle into your power enhancing breakfast.

9.00am The information tent opens, heralding the official start of your day. If you’re a Youth Leader head to the SoulNet breakfast in Café Uno for a hot steaming cuppa!

9.30am The first seminar slot. There are loads to choose from, just check the daily planner from page 41 (Week B) or page 55 (Week C) to see who will be talking about what and where!

11.00am Our morning celebration. Pop down to the Big Top and join thousands of others for some time to worship God, learn from the Bible and wait on his Spirit. This happens at 10am on Day 5!

9.15pm(ish)

7.00pm

Our late night programme is pretty special. Take a deep breath and prepare to read this next sentence… Chill out in a Café, spend some time praying at the Furnace, dance yourself silly down at Mr Boogies, get some extra time to sing to your creator in our late night worship sessions, put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don’t care down the Underground, check out a film in Celluloid, catch a live band in Gigs, shoot some hoops in the sports arena, pop a kick flip in the Lift or just lie in your tent and drift off to sleep listening to all the bustle outside.

Boom! Our main evening celebration kicks off at 7:00pm, so get down to the massive Big Top for time to connect with God, learn from the Bible and worship Jesus with thousands of others.

The choice is yours. Stuff winds down from 11.30pm with everything closing by midnight, at which time you can crawl back to your tent for some shut-eye.

1:00pm In the afternoons everything jumps into life. Our Cafés open, workshops take off (not literally like an aeroplane, they just happen), a few more seminar sessions get going (at 2:30pm and 4:00pm) and a whole series of sporting events roar into action. Check the day planner for all the details.

Loads of stuff happens throughout the day, so check the day planners in the middle of the programme or the individual venue pages to get specific times of workshops, seminars, film showings and loads more!

soul survivor 2010 how to use this programme Intro Info

How to use the Use your programme noggin. This programme is full of words. The way to get the most out of it is to read those words. You might like to read the words aloud to one another in your tents at night, with each person trying their best to do a Mike Pilavachi accent (interspersed with the odd Mike-isms such as ‘Mate’, ‘It’s just the Lord’ or ‘I’m just coming into land’). If reading all the words seems a bit much, how about just reading a few? Go on, we promise it’ll help you out. The most important bits are the headings on each page, and then essential info like times, days and locations of what’s happening are on that little colourful strip down there that runs throughout the whole thing. We hope you like how the programme looks and reads. If you have any comments or ideas on how we could improve it in future years (like making it glow in the dark), or you saw your face in a picture, drop us an email at editor@soulsurvivor.com. It always brightens our day when we hear from you.

Soul Survivor is a pretty friendly and happy place. Still, we can’t vouch for everyone so to make sure you’re safe and have an awesome time over the next few days please have a look at the rules/ essential info at the back of the programme and stick with these fail safe tips: 1. Stay in pairs (or more) when wandering around at night 2. Let your youth leader know where you are at all times and keep your mobile on (if you have one) so they can buzz you if necessary 3. Even if people seem really nice, don’t go off with someone you don’t know on your own Remember, use your noggin and don’t let common sense go out the window. Soul Survivor is a safe, life-changing place, so help us keep it like that!

soul survivor 2010 the big top Venues

Worship

Soul Survivor is all about meeting with God. You’ll quickly notice (if you haven’t already seen the massive tent as you arrived) that we have a pretty big Big Top set up on site, and guess what? The Big Top forms the main focus of our time together. Every morning and evening we gather in the Big Top for time dedicated purely to God. We’ll sing out our love for him. We’ll learn from his word. And we’ll let his Spirit change us. These sessions are about focusing back on him and inviting him to have his way in our lives, to change us and to help us live for him. In these times you’ll come to see that we always spend time doing the stuff listed on this page...

Worship is about expressing our love for God, and that involves our whole life. But it’s also great to spend specific times telling God that we love him and making it obvious that we’re for him; that we’re up for a radical life of following him wherever he leads and that we are desperate to learn to be more like him. One of the most natural ways to do this together is with music, so we’ll spend a while singing songs, dancing around and expressing our love of God with our voices, words and movements. In worship we focus on God, we tell him we love him, we meet again with him and we are changed… and the glory is always his.

Learn from the Bible

The Bible is God’s word in our world. As we unravel its meaning and apply

Please note: We’re really sorry but please don’t bring deckchairs, pillows, duvets, cushions, sleeping bags, fold up stools or anything else deemed unsuitable by the Stewards into the Big Top as these bits often take up valuable floor space, obstruct other people’s views and can be a fire hazard too. Thanks for understanding.

it to our lives we’ll hear God’s voice. Over the week we’ll listen in on the lives and experiences of loads of others who are trying to work out what it means to follow Jesus 2000 years after the party started. Mike Pilavachi (the greek guy), Ali Martin (the nice lady) and Andy Croft (the clever one) are hosting all our meetings, but they’ll be joined throughout the week by leaders, thinkers and friends who are bringing glory to Jesus with their lives in amazing ways.

Prayer ministry

In the Bible we see Jesus bring God’s love in many ways. He heals people of physical problems, he transforms attitudes, encourages those with struggles and equips people with his Spirit to show his love to their bit of the world. So, when we meet together we try and give God as much space as possible to work

within us by his Spirit. Our meetings are his meetings, so we always ask him to be with us and do what he wants to do. We’ll ask him to heal us, to help us deal with our messes, to inspire us and to empower us to live fully for Jesus. We’re desperate to encounter him, so naturally we will always ask him to be involved. We believe that we’re all in this together. God can use any one of us, by his Spirit, to bring his peace, healing, forgiveness, purpose or words to one another. He doesn’t have favourites who are the only ones who can do that stuff. God wants us all to play with the gifts he’s given. He loves us all and wants us all to get involved in what he is doing as we ask him into our lives. So, during times of ministry, make yourself available to pray for others. Stand with your mates as they let God deal with what’s going on with

them. Don’t worry if you’ve never done that sort of stuff before, we’ve included a few guidelines near the back to help you get started (please read and stick to these even if you’re used to praying with others). Plus, there’s also an ‘Enabling Team’ who’ll be around to make sure everything is safe and to offer help and guidance if needed, so look out for them and ask them to get involved if you need them too!

Tell us your story… If you have a story about what God has done this week, we’d love to hear it. Email us at testimonies@ soulsurvivor.com or put a written note in the little box at the front of the stage in the Main Meetings. If you want your story to be kept confidential then no worries, just let us know in the email. We’ve also got a video dairy booth at the Soul Survivor bit of the ToolShed, so add your thoughts there too!

soul survivor 2010 the menu of venues Venues

Roll up, roll up! Here we have it; an all new array of entertaining tastiness to get even the most introverted of you screaming, yelping and dancing for joy! That’s right, we’ve unleashed the reins on the Soul Survivor venues in 2010 and after rampaging round the Costa del Sol (and causing havoc at passport control) they have landed somewhat excitably in Somerset to make sure your five days with us are as memorable as the 1966 World Cup win! And this year, everything is being presented in 3D. We’ve even got chairs you can sit on! Wowwowweewah!! Anyway, as you can tell, it’s all pretty overwhelming, so be ready for the big kick off after the first Main Meeting on arrival day (that’s Day One)! Flick through the following pages to see what each tent, marquee or cowshed is home to for the next few days!

God, boxes & the rest of the programme: You can’t put God in a box. Believe us, we’ve tried. It ended badly. The box broke. It was a nice one too, it was cardboard with cut out handles and some of those bits of white foam padding on the inside. Metaphors aside, we’re trying to tell you something and that something is the reason for Soul Survivor. Listening carefully? OK, here we go…

page 10 |

God, and following him, can’t be restricted to a main meeting. In fact it can’t just fit into five days in a field in Somerset. Following Jesus isn’t about a church service or fifteen minutes spent reading our Bibles each morning. All these things are good, but God is bigger. He’s about all of life: our waking, sleeping, chatting, tea drinking. He’s in it all. He sees

the full 360 degrees - the whole circumference of life. That’s what all these other venues are about… life. Finding God as we hang with our mates, flip an ollie down the Lift, are moved by a scene of a film in Celluloid, feel the buzz of an awesome live band at Underground. God’s in it all and we love that, so get out there and find him! Go on...


soul survivor 2010 the chat room/late night worship: Venues

The Chat Room

Every body has a few questions now and then. Questions we often ask at Soul Survivor include ‘What makes Tipp-Ex white?’ or ‘How do the bubbles get into fizzy drinks?’ As you’re a bit more sensible than us you probably have a few more serious questions than that, especially if you’re new to words like church, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. So, we’ve found a group of the friendliest, wisest, calmest and cleverest people we know, locked them in a room and told them to wait patiently for you and any questions you may have. They are more than happy to listen if you need to get something off your chest, fancy a cuppa or need a bit of advice. They definitely aren’t scary (we’ve made them all wear woolly jumpers for a start) and they have a head full of thoughts on everything from God through to parents, relationships and life. It’s worth popping in to see them, they might not have all the answers, but they are wiser than Gandolf and Stephen Hawkins combined.

Late night worship

If you could sing unending songs of how Jesus saved your soul then this one will be of interest to you. Each night just before you drift off to bed in a damp tent you can join in with an hour long session of worship. Hosted by friends of Soul Survivor and chaps who are leading in our main meetings, these times will be a little more musically stripped down, giving you the chance to end the day doing what you were made for… worshipping your creator! A chance to sing your heart out to Jesus in a temporarily converted cowshed, a bit like the angels at the first ever Christmas.

soul survivor 2010 the fringe Venues

The Fringe is just that, on the fringe, located on a patch of land that marks the boundary between the centre of all the action and the gloomy rurality beyond. It’s the peripherals baby and that’s where it’s at! Just ask yourself this: Where does any good creative expression begin? Where do revolutions start? That’s right, they start on the edges and with the Fringe we get proper edgy, hedgy and sometimes give each other wedgies (not quite the perfect rhyme, sorry).

Seminars for those new to following Jesus… ‘New Start: Forgiven & Accepted’ 29th Chapter Day 2, 2:30pm ‘Under New Management: Jesus in Charge’ 29th Chapter Day 3, 2:30pm

Feel as if you’re not quite sinking into the mould like everyone else? Fear not. The mould was meant to be broken every now and then. If you’re getting a bit lost or out of your depth with the whole Soul Survivor thing then that’s not your fault, and you’re probably not on your lonesome either. So, mosey on down to the Fringe for a chance to kick back without any fuss, mess or stress. The Fringe is slightly singed and tinged with a pretty trendy Team who’ll be happy to chat about anything from the deepest questions the human mind can muster right through to last Saturday’s cricket scores or how to make the perfect brew (milk only added after a short brewing period of course). So, calling all reformers, stormers, creatives and contemplatives… you’ll find a warm welcome here, along with anyone else who fancies popping around! Oh, and The Fringe isn’t a hairdressers. In fact, even if you don’t have a Fringe (like most of the males of the species) you’ll still be welcomed with open arms… or a high five.

‘New Lifestyle: Extreme Makeover’ 29th Chapter Day 4, 2:30pm

Hotspot

‘The Crossroads: Where Next?’ 29th Chapter Day 5, 2:30pm

Late night sessions where questions are asked, pondered over and then answers suggested. Drop your own questions off with one of the Fringe team throughout the day and wander back to hear some reasoned responses from 10:30pm.

soul survivor 2010 cafe uno: Venues

Imagine your favourite place on earth. Now forget it. Café Uno’s coming at you like a polystyrene cup filled to the brim with steaming hot jazz juice to confuse your preferences. Skee bop do wap boww! It’s outlandish like a 70’s footballer’s haircut… but with a twist of lemon and a tartan bow. Owww. It’s sharp like a razor blade, but it won’t cut ya. Yes sir. Café Uno is the realm of Jazz mavericks and all star soulful families but don’t be scared, they’d be happy to give you a little ‘funkadelic’ lesson if you’ve no original James Brown LP collection. And the lesson starts now, so read carefully kid!

Uno afternoons:

Imagine floating about in a ‘big old vat of clouds’. Now that would be relaxing. Well, that’s exactly how the ‘Times Weekend Supplement’ described their experience at Café Uno one afternoon. They used other words too, but the reviewer was so chilled out by his time in Café Uno that he forgot how to write and the notes he made were just random letters like this: ‘mwswll’ and ‘fmnnf’. Hopefully that won’t happen to you… All you’ll find is no pressure time to kick back, unwind yourself and chill.

Uno evenings:

Pumped up like Lewis Hamilton’s tyres, hotter than all the curries ever invented by man and sharper than an isosceles triangle come our Uno evenings. Packed out with a queue round the block and a ‘one out, one in’ door policy, over the years the Uno Evenings have become legendary nights featuring the finest Soul, Jazz and Funk collectives that time – and space – has had to offer! If you can get in, you’ll be greeted by some of the most contagious sounds you are ever likely to hear. Prizes aren’t just dished out to the winners of break dance battles, but also to those who manage to stand still for more than 20 seconds! It really is that good, like holidays after exams or chips and gravy.

Resident Uno band: Week B: Re:Sound

One Nation under a groove, getting down just for the funk of it! A nine piece soul and funk collective that wail like a big phat whale! One of them has trombones for legs. For real!

Week C: Real Vibe Tighter than Linford Christie’s shorts, these old school legends take it back to the heyday of good times having you dancing ‘til the cows come home (which is about 11:00pm by our agricultural estimates).

We didn’t say up there but Café Uno also serves fresh coffee (which, believe it or not, they add flavoured syrups to), tea and a range of cakes.

Ever raged against a machine? It’s tough. You’ll know what we’re on about if you’ve had to fight an evil robot from the future who wants to destroy all mankind or tried to change the print settings to A5 paper on your PC. Either way, it’s tiring. And being tired means you need to find some rest. Well, guess what? The Soul Action Café has been built by hand (with twigs and moss) to calm your weary and technologically attacked mind.

Pop in with your mates for a few minutes and end up debating the finer works of Camus or the inequalities of our global economic system ‘til you’re blue in the face… All washed down with a sneaky little fairly-traded chocolat chaud or

caffeine infused beverage of course. Beyond all the chit chat the Soul Action café is the place to be seen if you’re going for that ‘Yes, I’m into literature and can still wear jeans that show off my trendy Top Man pants’ kind of vibe.

soul survivor 2010 soul action is not for sale Articles

No one should be for sale – God created us to be free. But millions of people in our world are trapped in poverty and poverty makes slaves of people. Two-thirds of people living in the world don’t have enough money for the basics we can take for granted like food, shelter and clothing. Thousands die needlessly every week from preventable diseases and hunger. Millions don’t have access to education and training which would break them out of the cycle of poverty.

These are all people God loves; and we want to remind our government that they can do something about the extreme poverty around the world. So, join us and add your face and name to our ‘Not For Sale’ campaign. Come to our stand in the ToolShed to have your photo taken and show the world you care about ending poverty.

What you’ve already done... Last year some of the money you gave in the Soul Survivor offering went towards supporting Soul Action projects in South Africa. Those funds have been helping school students pass their exams and find employment; to mentor young people from deprived areas; and to mobilise the church to work more effectively in their communities.

Check out their skills each morning and get to know some of the Parkour basics each afternoon! Morning performances from 9:30am Afternoon workshops from 2:30pm (first come, first to get a lesson)

Climbing wall

The Lift is where it’s at. A concrete schoolyard for skaters, bladers and kids with cross faders. If you don’t know, get to know. Rodney Mullen and Tony Hawkes kicked it down the Lift back at the birth of the skate scene, years ago when Mike P made the first ever board out of an old hollowed out tree trunk and some tricycle wheels. He invented the half pipe and taught Chad Muska what to do on it. For real? Yeah bwoy. For real. So bro, show us some of that epic grindage and get your tricktionary out for all to see and get stoked at. No fakers, bakers or candlestick makers, just the real deal son. This is skating as it was always meant to be; flat concrete, decent rails, half-pipes, fun boxes and no attitude, just gratitude for the artform.

Serving all sorts of drinks that are in balance with your body fluids, the Lift slash Sports Café is the perfect place to catch your breath whilst still taking in all the elements. Assorted refreshments and enviable viewing points acompany a few PS3’s and Wii’s to give all you armchair enthusiasts something to cheer about!

soul survivor 2010 dreggs cafe Venues

Banned from four of the planet’s five continents for breaking all known public order laws (and starting some revolutions too), Dreggs is ignoring the parental and governmental calls to ‘calm down and relax’ by stepping up its game and dishing out a fresh portion of insanity sticks in 2010. Unfortunately the Man and his Intergalactic Fun Police have been trying to outlaw Dreggs from this year’s events. There’s an unjust court order against them telling them to keep the noise down and be in bed by 9.30pm. Yeah right, we all know the Dreggs posse don’t take no nonsense and are ready and willing to incite the wrath of all kinds of authority figures by helping you realise your dream of holding down that elusive pie eating or fish throwing title!

Other things in Dreggs... Playstation relaxation

Head down to Dreggs and you’ll either sign up to their revolutionary cause or be so dazzled by the spectacle that your eyes will pop out of your head and you’ll look all weird (but be able to see round corners). For the uninitiated the team will also be giving lessons in how to make milk come out of your nose whilst speaking with a mouth full of three-day-old mashed potato.

Get into the latest games and challenge all onlookers to take you on

If all that is a bit too much in the way of pretentious prose, the basics are that Dreggs is a café that runs all sorts of games, challenges and interactive morsels. Well, that’s what we tell parents, men in black and anyone else who starts asking questions.

Forget London 2012! We’ve got more sporting events, energetic tournaments and sweat inducing activities than those being planned for the London 2012 Games. Olympics? Bah! What’s all the fuss about anyway? Lots of middle aged men in suits talking about sport and waving flags. That’s not sport is it? Just head down to our indoor and outdoor sports arenas to see what the real deal is when it comes to sporting achievement; you’ll be amazed.

What’s on then… Football came home. But just for a long weekend so we’ve had to sort out all sorts of other sporting goodies to keep you entertained during your five days with us:

The Soul Survivor World Cup…

The Raspberry Panna Cotta tournament

Ultimate Frisbee tournament

‘You’ve got to hold and give, but do it at the right time, you can be slow or fast, but you must get to the line. They’ll always hit you and hurt you, defend and attack. There’s only one way to beat them, get round the back.’

Panna cage football with a twist. The winner gets the rights to a nice serving of Raspberry Panna Cotta dessert. Fast-paced, energetic and tasty... If that doesn’t make sense, it’s just a game of one-on-one, two-ontwo or even three-on-three football in a cage (a bit like Ultimate Fighting but nicer). Days 2-5 from 2:00pm

A controversial game invented back in Roman times when people looked like Russell Crowe (when he was in Gladiator) and threw discus-like stones at each other for entertainment. Nowadays the barbaric overtones of the game have been softened, so it’s generally not played to the death. Begins Day 3 from 2:00pm

Grab five players, and come along to see if you can make the beautiful game even more beautiful. Straight up Match of the Day action, complete with half time punditry and our own Jules Rimet (still gleaming) trophy for the winners! Begins Day 2 from 2:00pm

Please note: Outdoor tournaments are weather permitting

Indoor Sports Times:

Fun Run

Dress up like your favourite Biblical character (not Jesus, that could be considered as blasphemy, and that’s not fun) or just come as yourself and sprint, jog, walk or crawl around the showground in our sixth annual Soul Action Fun Run. You don’t need to be an athletically gifted individual to take part, just someone who’d like to raise some cash for those less fortunate than yourself (feel any pangs of guilt yet?). Pull your socks up, join in the camaraderie and see if you can make it (you can, it’s only two miles). Remember, it’s a sponsored run, so get people to support you… all the proceeds go to Soul Action.

The Inter-Village ‘It’s a Knockout’ Challenge

Basketball tournament

Get together with other happy campers from your bit of the showground and enter into a good old Butlins-esque fun day, featuring a bean bag relay, egg and spoon races and even a tug ‘o’ war! You’re guaranteed to get wet so wear something sensible (like shorts, not a shirt & tie). Day 4 from 2:00pm

Yo what’s up playa! Try slam dunkin’ it at our indoor bee-ball court! So, if you think you’ve got skills come and prove it homey. Three vs. three basketball, straight out of the urban courts of New York. Gritty. For real son. Ghetto blasters and rap music will be provided. One for all wannabe Globetrotters! Begins Day 5 from 2:00pm

If you’re not a runner you can still be part of the action! Just get yourself a spot along the race day route and clap or cheer the energetic competitors as they breathlessly stumble past you. You can also sponsor your mates and thereby appease any guilt you have of not taking part with a small (or large) financial sacrifice.

To enter: 1) Get your forms from the Soul Action stand in the ToolShed 2) Don’t eat too many chips before you run 3) Do some exercises and stretches 4) Turn up and run like the wind 5) Collect your sponsorship money and hand it in at the Soul Action stand in the ToolShed

Lights, camera, action! OK, what are your top movie moments? Samwise running into the river after the ring bearing Frodo? Seeing Pele, Sylvester Stallone Ossie Ardiles, and Bobby Charlton take on the evil Nazi’s over a game of footie in Escape to Victory? The anguished cry of paternally troubled Luke Skywalker in response to nasty Darth Vader’s revelation that he is, in fact, Luke’s father in the Empire Strikes Back? All awesome moments of movie history! We love a good film now and then. The good thing is you don’t have to wait ‘til ‘now and then’ when you’re at Soul Survivor! No, no, no. You can pop along to Celluloid any night of the week and choose to settle in at one of our two screens for the evening! Grab some sweets, a big old can of pop, a space on the carpet and make yourself comfy, as larger-than-life characters (they are probably about twice the size of an average man) act out their heartwarming story before your very eyes. This is what’s on offer throughout the week…

The Fantastic Mr Fox (PG)

Night at the Museum 2 (PG)

George Clooney, Bill Murray and the gang revel in reliving childhood memories with this stop-motion animation of Roald Dahl’s awesome bookey wook. The classic kid’s tale sees Mr Fox facing a mid-life crisis of immense proportions. Pining for a little bit of adventure he decides on one final nightime jolly to raid a few local farms… actions which have some serious consequences! The new interpretation is straight from the mind and soul of director Wes Anderson so expect something about awkward father figures, unsure sons and a few humourous escapades too!

A few years down the line, Larry is no longer a night steward and is making waves as a rather successful businessman. Good news! Still, things don’t change down at the museum whose exhibits come to life and before long Larry is drawn into a relocation exercise and ends up where only a sequel to Night at the Museum could end up… a bigger museum. Fun times!

17 Again (PG)

Alice in Wonderland (PG)

Up (PG)

Surprisingly this is a film about being seventeen (again). A football star with a great college scholarship waiting in the wings and a beautiful girlfriend, Mike is having the time of his life… that is until his girlfriend gets preggers and he ‘does the right thing’ by marrying the lass, forever changing his life. Suffice to say later as an older man he regrets his decision so much that he somehow manages to wake up as a 17 year old (again) and relive his past glories. But will he do anything any different? One for the girls as it’s got Zac ‘High School Musical’ Effron in it. He’s so hot.

Yes! Johnny Depp plays another weird, slightly unhinged character in… Ta da! You guessed it! A Tim Burton film. Is he Willy Wonka, the Mad Hatter or Sweeney Todd? Who cares, he’s always brilliant and in this weirder than weird remix of Lewis Carroll’s excessively trippy novel, Johnny ‘Mad Hatter’ Depp comes to life alongside jabberwockys, talking rabbits, dethroned queens and lots of other nightmarish oddities. Still it’s all in the name of fun as star of the show Alice faces her fears and causes a massive social revolution in Underland. Don’t watch if tired, it’s likely to confuse your dreams.

Carl’s a little late in life starting his adventure but he lives it up in style when at the age of 78 he launches his house into the air thanks to a big bunch of balloons.

soul survivor 2010 mr boogies Venues

Time for another chapter in the sprawling mess of a disco charged novel that is the life of Mr Boogies. Are you sitting comfortably? Right then we’ll begin. Once upon a time in a small farm just outside Tunbridge Wells there lived a boy. His name was Master Boogies and this farm was his home. It was also the home of his elderly widowed mother, a few cows, a pet dog and a goldfish named Mr Chutney. Master Boogies and his family were rather poor and so one day, when the store cupboard was almost empty, Old Mother Boogies sent him to market with one of their cows, hoping to earn a little money to help pay for the ever rising Sky TV bills. However, on the way to market, young Master Boogies met a strange traveller. This man was dressed in a purple velour jumpsuit, set off by a nice diamond encrusted belt and a strange, yet effortlessly cool denim trilby hat. The traveller offered Master Boogies a deal for the cow… ‘Yo man, I like the look of your cow’ he said. ‘How about doing a deal? I’ll give you my nice crocodile skin cowboy boots for that cow’. In awe of the traveller and his courageous fashion choices, Master Boogies agreed to the swap. And it was a swap that would forever change his life. As the deal was done and Master Boogies and the traveller shook hands there was a puff of smoke, the clash of a hi-hat and - to Master Boogies

surprise - the traveller was gone and the crocodile skin shoes had appeared miraculously on his feet. ‘Weird’, thought Master Boogies. But things got weirder. In a daze, he went to walk away, instead finding he could only dance… and dance well. The harder he tried to walk normally, the more he danced. In a panic he started to run and inadvertently he began to move so funkily that time and space were disrupted and he was transported back through the ages. The last known sighting of Master Boogies was at an Earth Wind and Fire concert in 1972, when he’d fully adopted the persona, Mr Boogies, and officially announced

he was dedicating his life to bringing mankind beautiful rhythms and alternative dance moves. Legend and rumour has it that Mr Boogies plans to once again break the space time continuum by appearing every night at Soul Survivor and bringing some of his funky moves with him! We hope so, he’s our favourite. Get on down to his joint for over two hours of tunes to get you dancing your socks and shoes off to! Yes. It’s gonna be the best party ever and, if you’re lucky, you might even spot Mr Boogies and his crocodile shoes (if you do, let us know, his Mum is worried sick)!

The Toolio, as it’s come to be known in the hood, is our absolutely massive resources exhibition. Inside its monstrous doors you’ll find a shed full of Christian organisations displaying all manner of things to (hopefully) encourage you in your walk with Jesus. Wanna get your hands on the latest Soul Survivor CD, T Shirt or hoodie? Well come on down squire! You’ll have a ball! But be warned, The ToolShed is big. So big that we’ve applied to the UN to register it as a principality separate from the United Kingdom. The plan is that Mike P will be the king, Andy Croft the Prime Minister and all the worship team (headed up by Beth), special guards who have to wear funny hats and carry ornamental swords. Unfortunately, we’re not at this stage yet, and without a formal government, the principality of the ToolShed is missing basic public services, with much of its land, as yet uncharted in maps. That means you could get lost, so leave a trail of breadcrumbs in your wake as you explore its dusty alcoves and perilous mountain ranges. Here are two points to bear in mind about the ToolShed, these are serious: 1) All the stands and organisations are here to equip you in your walk with Jesus. None should be screaming at you because you don’t quite get their theological angle on things (no matter how right you or they might be). If you feel like you’ve been accosted by an over zealous exhibitor then let us know by nipping into Information.

2) Most of the items that are sold are either primarily a resource or a way of generating money to support the work of a charitable trust… but don’t be pressured to spend cash, this isn’t a shopping centre.

Make sense? We really like you, don’t want to treat you as some kind of marketing fodder and want you to be able to relax whilst at Soul Survivor so that’s why we make a fuss over this stuff.

The ToolShed Mezzanine Café

By mezzanine we don’t mean that dark but great album from Massive Attack… it’d be great if we did, just imagine cakes and drinks themed on songs from the LP and team members dressed up like 3D and Daddy G. That would be awesome. But nope, instead it’s a Café on a floating ‘mezzanine floor’ or ‘balcony’. Imagine that, it’s an architectural wonder (like most buildings on the showground). What will they think of next? Anyway, the café, hosted by the very lovely dudes from Compassion (the chaps who do awesome work with children living in poverty around the world), will serve up the freshest brew this side of Fortnum & Mason. So, if you can hack the climb up a slippery rock face (a metaphor for stairs) to about 64ft above ground level, a nice bit of cake could be your prize (but only if you pay for it).

The Soul Survivor Café

By far and away the best café you’re ever likely to get a cuppa in. Why? Well because it’s run by us of course! Hosted by some of the team, a few of our mates and a couple of stragglers too, it’s the place to be if you need to put your feet up for five minutes or hide from an irate youth leader whose tent you just secretly moved into the middle of the Big Top (which we don’t condone in any way). This year the Café seamlessly intermingles with the ever awesome Soul Survivor stand, so you can check out the latest goodies on offer or pick up some info about upcoming events!

The Office

(Sponsored by Compassion) How broad is your band? Ours is pretty broad, like a bean. It comes through a tunnel and has something to do with super intelligent mice who stay up to date with the world’s latest news, typing out the headlines in html code.

We’ve also built a very, very special video diary booth too… The idea is that you (yep, that’s you reading this) can head over to the Soul Survivor Café/Stand and give us a video testimony about what God’s been doing with you this week.

So, if you need to check your electronic mail or update your Facebook status to “is wishing they could stay at Soul Survivor ‘til Jesus comes back to judge the living and the dead” you’ll need a broad beaned up computer! And guess what? The Office, like most offices around the country, has computers and these computers are connected to the world wide interweb!

There’s no pressure from bored looking camera men or stressed out producers and you can nip in with your mates (probably two max, it’s quite small) to give us a quick rundown on anything that’s encouraged you in your walk with Jesus during your time at Soul Survivor. We also like funny stories too, so if you accidentally ate your youth group’s supply of custard creams last night, throw that in too.

We operate a pay-as-you-go option (no contracts yet we’re afraid), so chuck us 30p and you’ll get 15 minutes to upload your YouTube vids of Mike P singing or you and your mates going mental in the Main Meetings. Nuff said… oh and don’t forget to land at www. soulsurvivor.com/uk for special updates whilst you’re in cyberspace! You could even become a Fan of Soul Survivor on Facebook!

tom & olly

The twenty-two year old Southampton-ite began singing and playing guitar just six years ago, but is already an online sensation with 17 million MySpace plays and a sold out UK tour under his belt. The ladies love him... and why not, he’s got his head screwed on musically, being in the same sort of vibe as your Jack Johnsons and Ben Harpers, which is never a bad thing in our book! Joe camped out at Soul Survivor as a young whipper snapper and cites Mike P as his biggest singing inspiration. Despite that he’s actually quite good.

Tom & Olly are not two but four men. They sing songs. Some would say one of them does a bit of rapping. We’re not sure what to call their musical offerings, but basically you can’t limit them to one genre.

Week B: Day One

Week C: Day One

Unfortunately they are brought down by little things, so if you see them, mention big things (like football stadia or blue whales) and they will be happy. We have no doubt that they will have you singing and humming their tunes for days, weeks and months after the gig!

One word: haircuts. That and a musical wizardry that even Gandalf would be proud of define the just awesomeness that is The Gentlemen. Formed in Sheffield the lads have been putting in the hours and working up a big sweat in the North of England for nearly five years. Their prolific live show, catchy songs and gentlemanly manners will surely woo you as only a group of tweed wearing English gents can. It’s rock n roll straight from, and for, the soul. Expect waistcoats and ear popping melodies. Week B: Day Three Week C: Day Two

worthy of all the pain, desire, creativity and beauty that musical history deserves, then we’ll take our hats off to you and also provide you with a back line of small amps, a soundman and twenty minutes to do your thing.

Bandstand

Let’s hope so ‘cos if not, the Bandstand crowd might start a riot and throw chairs at you. If you think you can take on the gauntlet and wow the masses with a display

Deal? Please note: Please refrain from using profanity during your performance (and life). Thanks.

soul survivor 2010 the furnace Venues

Artshed

The Furnace is our prayer joint, and in 2010 it’s split over two venues to give you and your prayerful expressions loads of space to get creative and loud, or quiet and contemplative. Up on the balcony: Head into the massive Toolshed and look to the skies (well, up on the balcony in the corner) to find a massive area where you can explore prayer and intercession in some creative ways. Draw, scribble, write or doodle your requests to your heavenly Father and give inspiration to others who are working out how to communicate with God!

Reflective prayer space: For the more contemplative moments of your week you might just need a space to sit, chill, and chew on what God is saying and doing with you. If you find yourself in that spot, just head to our reflective Furnace venue where you’ll find loads of stuff to help you connect with God and meditate on his Word in a setting that would calm even a teething baby or over-excited puppy.

Specific prayer stuff: We often think that prayer is a personal thing, and sometimes it is. But sometimes it’s also about standing with others to present our requests to God. So, get involved in the following stuff for some prayerful and communal times: Start the day: Days 2-4 at10am-10.30am Afternoon prayer: Days 2-5 from 2pm Late night prayer: Days 1-5: from 11.15pm All taking place in the Furnace Reflective Prayer Venue!

soul survivor 2010 creative arts & workshops Venues

How do you express your thoughts, feelings, emotions and concerns to God? How do you convey them to the world? Most of us use words, but we also have bodies, hands, minds and all sorts to get across what we’re all about and throughout history, creative expression (stuff like music, art, dance, and the written word) has led to some of the most profound and accessible ways to communicate and explore what Jesus was and is all about.

Kids

We love that, so throughout the week we’re running a load of great stuff around creative expression of our faith to help you get all inspired! See what’s on and when below!

VideoSchool Stuff Making a film

Jeremy & Esther Higham You might not have heard, but through Soul Action we’re running a video competition. Make a short film about God’s Mission and you could win a Macbook and Flip video camera.

Expect to be learn about basic filming, presenting, storyboarding

soul survivor 2010 kids work Venues

Family Films:

Baby Bathing

Showings are daily at 7pm in Celluloid but children must be accompanied by a parent or a nominated adult. One adult can accompany up to four children so you might find it handy to sort out a rota with other families and take it in turns to be the responsible adult!

Camping is pretty tricky with babies so we’re helping out by providing you with a baby bath, some warm water and a dry space to get your little one ready for bed. Please bring your own towels, nappies, nappy bags, toiletries and baby. It all happens in the wooden building on Yellow 3 between 4:45pm – 6:45pm on days 2, 3 and 4. Do speak to the Creche Team on site if you need any more information. Ideally the baby bathing provision will be just for babies (use your judgement on that, but teenagers will be turned away, no matter how smelly they are).

Kids

The films are: Day 1: Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel Day 2: Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs Day 3: Up Day 4: Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs Day 5: The Princess & The Frog

‘Free Time’ @ Rock Solid Each afternoon (between 3:30pm and 5:30pm) you can drop in to the Rock Solid venue for some ‘Free Time’. Bring your kids, grab a cup of tea and have a chat with other parents and the kids team members to find out a bit more about what’s been going on in the kids sessions. There will be toys and crafts available as well as kid’s cartoons and movies.

Registration Under 12s will be able to collect wristbands when they register for kids work on arrival day. 0-4 years: All kids aged 0-4 years will need to register in the Rock Solid venue between 5pm and 7.30pm on Day 1. Please bring your child/children to the venue and a member of the team will issue you with a security card. You will need to show the card at each session and sign the child in and out as

added security. Parents/guardians collecting under 10s MUST have their security card with them. This is strictly enforced: no card, no child. Activities will be provided for your children during the registration process. Getting everything sorted on Day 1 will save you queuing the following morning and make sure you get to the Big Top on time! 5-11 years: Children should arrive with their parent/guardian at the Boulder Gang venue at 6.30pm on Day 1. Parents will need to give their details and sign to say if they will be dropping off and collecting their child from each session or if they are happy for them to arrive and leave unaccompanied.

Special Needs We want to do as much as possible to welcome and include all children irrespective of their particular needs. If your child has additional needs then please make a point of speaking to the Team Leader for their age group at the earliest opportunity so that they are fully aware of how to care for your child.

soul survivor 2010 seminars explained Essential Info

A seminar is a session of teaching that lasts for around an hour and at Soul Survivor we have a whole mass of seminars taking place at three different times throughout the day: 9.30am, 2.30pm and 4.00pm.

page 38 |

We’re chuffed to have a bunch of awesome speakers and guests with us throughout the week helping to deliver teaching on everything from the basics of following Jesus through to some in-depth Biblical study! Over the next few pages you’ll find descriptions of all the seminars that we have on offer throughout each week.

Have a read, choose which ones are for you and get your day planned well in advance!

soul survivor 2010 seminars explained Essential Info

Up, in and out…

We’ve categorised our seminars in the following streams (they aren’t actually streams with flowing water, that’d be weird and you’d end up getting wet and cold). As there are so many seminars, the categories of Up, In and Out should help you get your head round the general gist of each session with just a quick scan of the page!

Up Look up. What do you see? Sky? Clouds? The inside of your tent? Maybe, but spiritually we often look up when we’re trying to connect with God. Whether it’s worship, the Bible, prayer or something else, this stream is all about who God is, how we communicate with him and how he communicates back.

In

Out

Look in. What goes through your head when you look at yourself? I wish I was a better Christian? If only I had a haircut like Mike P? Looking in is about the stuff God does inside us and with us. Expect to find seminars on the Holy Spirit, ministry, healing, image and all that stuff on character we like too!

The chilli rating:

Look out! It’s a big wide world out there and God longs for us, in fact calls for us, to be deeply involved in working with him to change it! Get into this stream of seminars to find stuff on justice, living out your faith back home and changing the world for Jesus!

Ever visited a curry house and ordered something way too spicy for you? We’ve all been there, it’s devastating.

Similarly with over seventy seminars happening this week you’re probably going to face some tough decisions over which sessions to go to.

You’ve flicked through the menu for ages and gone for an adventurous option only to find that within seconds of your first mouthful your tongue is burning, your forehead is sweating and the whole meal has become a lot of hard work.

So to help out, we’ve given each seminar a chilli rating. The more chillis a seminar has, the spicier it’ll be! If you’re just starting out with following Jesus, try some of the milder sessions. If you’re an intrepid theological explorer then get your teeth into one of the spicier and meatier sessions! Make sense? Good!

Not many of us will get paid to lounge around on desert islands as a career option. Most of us are going to spend the greater part of our lives working but what job does God want us to do? Are there some careers God prizes above others? How do we find guidance when it comes to choosing careers?

‘Healing instead of hurting’ Jeannie Morgan

Journeying with Jesus is not just a ‘what can I get out of this?’ experience... Jesus went where no-one had gone before bringing life and justice wherever he went. Come and learn more about Jesus, justice and how to live it out in a way that will impact the world.

Jesus was spiritual right? He prayed, studied the scriptures and said revelatory things. But he also turned tables and criticised injustice. So, what does Jesus-centred spirituality look like?

Some of us have a gaping hole that nothing seems to fill. We feel empty, lost, broken and hurt. Maybe we’ve suffered from some sort of abuse, maybe we’ve lost someone near to us or it may be that we’ve been robbed of safety, security and hope. A look at some of the causes of our pain and how we can find healing. Prayer ministry will be available.

Uwiragiye and Nzabahimana, Compassion sponsored children, Uganda

Uwiragiye and Nzabahimana We are twins. Our parents died some years ago so our sister looks after us. She’s 20 years old and has a baby of her own. We go out and gather firewood so she can cook for us, but sometimes there is no food to eat. That’s why we are glad we go to the Compassion project where we know we will be fed and can play with other children. We also love to sing songs. For less than 70p per day you can help children like Uwiragiye and Nzabahimana to receive education, healthcare, food, clothing and the opportunity to hear about the transforming love of Christ.

soul survivor 2010 soul man & soul sista Venues

As is now Soul Survivor tradition, during a few afternoons of the week we offer the chance to hang out with people of the same gender and gather all the boys in Mr Boogies and all the girls in the Main Meeting venue. We then proceed to shut the doors and talk about secret things that the other gender can never know about ever. If they do find out it’s likely they’ll explode, hence the secrecy.

Soul Man & SOul Sista

We call these sessions Soul Man and Soul Sista (guess who goes to which) and this year we’ve got some great, open, honest and Jesus-centred thoughts to chuck your way. The boys will be looking at usual stuff like sex, porn (they won’t actually look at porn, but will talk about it) and going too far with your girlfriend. But that’s not all that defines being a lad. These sessions are about getting to grips with being a bloke, and what Jesus (the ultimate bloke) thinks about it all. We know that lads come in all shapes and sizes from those who hunt for elk with just their hands to those who use their hands to paint pictures of those same elk. Jesus, the ultimate role model has something challenging and inspiring to say to all lads, no matter what your perceived levels of manliness are, and that’s what Soul Man is all about! Other than sitting about nattering and doing some knitting the girls will also be digging deep into their Bibles to find out all about how our loving heavenly father sees them. Identity, image, as well as sex and relationships are some of the bigger stuff they’ll be getting their teeth into, plus there will be some stuff on boys, make up and hair cuts too.

page 72 |

The point of Soul Sista is to encourage all you girls to follow Jesus with all you have, and to be happy just being yourself! Finally, on Day 4 we’ll do a little swop (not the Panini kind though). Soul Sista host Ali will head over to lead the Soul Man session whilst Andy and Mike will get all embarrassed and shy at the Soul Sista meet. We’re not sure this is the best idea ever, but hey, even if you don’t learn a thing about the opposite sex during the seminars, it’ll be funny. Pop along to our Soul Man and Soul Sista sessions at the following times and locations:

soul survivor 2010 student reception Venues

Soul Man & SOul Sista

Unfortunately we don’t have a venue on site dedicated to the afternoon TV schedule. Sorry we know this is an essential part of being a student. Instead we have a little get together organised for all of you attending one of the UK’s (or wider world’s) centres of Higher Education. Whatever you’re reading, whether it’s biology, criminology, ales and the ancient world, Bargain Hunt studies or anything else for that matter, we’d love you to join us for a nice brew and (maybe) some biscuits. You’ll get the chance to meet students from all over the place, so if you’re either currently at - or intending to go to - uni this year, then pop along. You’ll be pleased to know the session is taking place in the afternoon so you don’t have to get up especially early to join in! If you’re super keen then you can also attend the ‘Starting Uni’ seminar that is taking place just before the reception in the Soul Action Cafe at 2.30pm on Day 4!

soul survivor 2010 get out! Venues

Get out throughout the year! If you want to learn by doing back home then there are loads of ways you can still get involved. Check these options:

Some of you will have the opportunity to get some practical experience in getting out there and doing mission by serving the churches and communities around the showground!

Soul Man & SOul Sista

For years we’ve been coming to Shepton Mallet, and though we hope the people of the town already like us, we also hope that our ‘Get Out’ programme will both bless them and show them a bit more of Jesus! So, this is the plan... Firstly, we’ll have a bunch of YWAM’ers who have been doing evangelism and outreach projects for a while with us to share a bit of what they have learnt from what they have been doing. Secondly those who sign up will have the chance to get out there and have a go. This will involve going into the local communities in small groups, creatively sharing the gospel with people that you meet, giving you the opportunity to know God and make Him known.

Interested? Then sign up… Spaces on the Get Out programme are limited so if you haven’t signed up online beforehand then pop to the YWAM stand in the Toolsehed early in the week to get some forms and get involved!

The timetable If you’ve signed up already this is your ‘Get out’ timetable: Days 3 & 4 9:30am: Get out training sessions in Dreggs From 1:00pm-5:30pm: Out to projects to serve! Meet by the Main gate opposite the Medical Centre

page 74 |

Get Out two-week teams: Join with YWAM and Soul Survivor to choose from a load of twoweek mission teams heading to communities across the UK, Europe, Asia and even Africa! Soul Survivor will help out with some of the training, whilst the YWAMer’s will take you off to put into practice what you’ve been learning. www.soulsurvivor.com/uk/getout Soul Action Transform teams: You can read all about Soul Action, our partnership with relief and development organization Tearfund on p16, but here we want to quickly mention the six month Soul Action teams that serve in some incredible projects in around the world. Take some time out to get involved in a church and work in some amazing projects serving the poor. www.soulaction.org/go Stay home: You don’t need to go anywhere to do mission. There’s a world out there, and it’s waiting for you just beyond your doorstep. Why not check out some of the resources surrounding ‘The Noise’ to help you run a bunch of social action and Jesus centred stuff in your local community? www.soulaction.org/noise

We flippin love youth leaders! They are awesome! They bring all you lot to Soul Survivor each year, look after you, deal with irate mums, fill out forms, and when they get the chance they might also encourage you in your walk with Jesus too. What legends! For most of us, Youth Leaders have had some pretty significant parts to play in our faith, so we reckon we should honour them and give them a bit of time to relax now and again! Although Soul Survivor is all about you teenagers, that doesn’t mean we’ll be forgetting about the people you depend on when the rest of the Youth Group thought it’d be funny to hide all your clothes in the trees. So here we go, this is what’s on offer for the Yoof Leaders at Soul Survivor in 2010!

SoulNet breakfasts

SoulNet prophecy and prayer sessions

Pop along to Café Uno at 9:00am on the mornings of Day 2,3 & 4 for a nice cup of real coffee, some pastries, muffins and the chance to mingle with a bunch of other chaps who spend their days hanging around teenagers!

Sign up for some time with our prayer team and spend a while with a few others listening to what God is saying, being filled with his Spirit and refocusing your life back on Jesus. More details and sign up sheets will be at the SoulNet breakfasts.

If you have come to join us from another place, then we hope you have a very nice stay. We’re glad you’re here.

To make you feel welcome, we’re putting on a few little ‘meet and greets’ for all of you from distant lands, so just head along to one or all of them and we’ll give you a full-on tutorial on getting down with the lingo (see over there for some starters), drinking tea and eating kebabs. Plus you’ll get to meet others who’ve intrepidly travelled across the globe to be at Soul Survivor too. We promise it’ll be fun (and there will be no compulsory singing of ‘God Save the Queen’). If you’ve travelled from abroad, you’ll need to collect your wristbands, from the International Desk in the Welcome Tent (Seminar A) on arrival day.

Your simple English phrasebook… Getting to grips with a new culture can be quite a tough business, so to help you out here are a few phrases you might want to learn and just shout at anyone you meet. They will be sure to accept you as a full bloodied English gent if you shout loud enough!

‘Give us a cup of rosy lee wud ya matey?’ Translation: It’d be awfully nice if you could fetch me a cup of tea my good man

‘Give us the old dog and bone so I can order us a ruby murray will ya guvnor! I’m Hank Marvin!’ Translation: Would you mind if I borrowed your telephone old chap. I’m starving and could do with a nice curry

‘Alright, alright. Don’t get your Alan Whickers in a twist!’ Translation: Please calm down, there’s no need to create a scene. On that note… So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen (pet), adieu!

soul survivor 2010 dig it: bible reading notes Articles

This Bible reading guide is all about the, erm, Bible. The Bible isn’t a book full of specific answers – you can’t go to a remote part of Leviticus and discover God’s ruling on doing the lottery or whether it’s OK to support Manchester United (it’s not, by the way). The Bible is God’s book. It tells us God’s great plan for salvation, an epic story of God and his relationship with and love for his people. And the best part is that we can be part of it all too. Before you read, ask God to speak to you. As you read, ask yourself what God is saying to you through the text. Prayerfully think about the questions. Talk to God and remember to listen! Ready? Put on your Bible reading trousers and let’s go.

Day 1: What is the Bible? Ask God to be with you as you read and think about his Word. Listen for his voice in the words. Then read Isaiah 62:1,2 and Luke 4:16–21 and play spot the similarity. Spot the link? By reading this section out, Jesus is saying, ‘I’m the saviour you’ve been waiting for.’ This is the heart of the Bible – God’s plan for the salvation of his people through Jesus. It stretches over the whole book. God’s relationship with his people is central, and so our relationship with him is central to our walk with him. The Bible does not contain an answer for every problem – its contents are more important than that. It’s where we encounter this life-changing Jesus and discover what it means to put God at the heart of our lives.

• What is your relationship with God like? • Do you know this life-changing Jesus? • What is God saying to you through these passages?

Day 2: Why do I need to read the Bible? Who are your influences? Who has made the biggest difference to your life? Read 2 Timothy 3:14 – 4:5. Who or what are the ‘teachers’ (4:2,3) you listen to? Find a piece of paper and write down all that Paul (the writer) tells Timothy about what the Scriptures are for. That’s quite a long list – is there anything that surprises you? Look at verse 15 again. The Bible is God’s story, of rescue through Jesus’ death and resurrection, and through the Bible we discover more of that story. But reading the Bible is not like just watching the TV, it’s much

more like pressing the red button. You’re not passive when you read the Bible. We are part of the story, listening to God and interacting with his Word. • Do you let yourself be changed when you read the Bible? • Make a list of what we should do in response to reading the Bible. How can we do this?

Day 3: How do I read it? How often do you read the Bible? (Be honest.) Why is that? Read John 16:8–15 and underline some of the things Jesus says the Spirit will do. In this passage, Jesus outlines some of the things the Spirit will do when he comes. But what has this got to do with reading the Bible? Well, when we read the Bible the Holy Spirit is there to guide us as we read. It’s almost like having the director of a film with you as you watch...

| page 81


soul survivor 2010 dig it: bible reading notes Articles

There are loads of ways of engaging with the Bible (reading, listening, using Bible reading guides, listening to a sermon), but we always need to ask the Holy Spirit to guide us. ‘The Spirit will take what I [Jesus] have to say and tell it to you’ (verse 15). • How do you get into the Bible? • What do you do when you don’t understand something you read? • Ask the Holy Spirit to be with you as you go on to read more of the Bible.

Day 4: How can this book change my life? If you can find a mirror, look in it now. What do you see? Now stop looking – what can you remember? Now read James 1:22–25. Are you like the people in verse 23 and 24? Despite how it sounds, this is not some hitherto undiscovered Gok Wan part of the Bible, but a great illustration of how the Bible can and should change your life. What is the point of looking in the mirror if you’re going to forget what you have seen? You may as well have not looked in the first place. Similarly, what’s the point of reading the Bible if you’re not going to let the things you read change you? Look at what James says. Listening and letting it change you (obeying) makes you happy. If you don’t, you’re only fooling yourself. • How much do you let the Bible change your life?

page 82 |

• What stops you from putting into practice what you read? • Is letting God change your life always a happy experience?

Day 5: How does the Bible fit together? What major spiritual events in your life can you pick out? Your first one might be coming to this Soul Survivor event! Read Hebrews 11 and pick out a person whose story is inspiring. The Bible is made up of 66 books split into two ‘Testaments’. But it’s not just a collection of different books. Like any good series of Doctor Who or CSI, there is a story arc to the Bible and that’s God’s story of salvation. These ‘heroes of faith’ are all part of this one story. But it doesn’t stop there. While we’re not written into the Bible, we are the continuation of God’s plans. The people in Hebrews 11 only saw a glimpse of what God had planned for the salvation of his people, but we have been given it – Jesus! (Look at verses 39,40.) • How well do you know your way around the Bible? • How much do you feel part of this story arc? • Have you found the thing that makes you perfect (verse 40) – Jesus?

Day 6: How does God speak to me through the Bible? Quieten your mind. Focus on God. Read Deuteronomy 11:18–21 and think what the modern equivalents of the things mentioned in the passage might be. If we want to recognise God speaking to us through the Bible, then we need to dive right in and, er, swim about! It’s no use just dipping your toe in once in a while. In today’s passage, Moses is encouraging the Israelites to stay loyal to God, and part of that was to immerse themselves in his Word. And as Moses told the Israelites to write God’s Word all over the place, so we need to read it, listen to it, discuss it, meditate on it, listen to sermons about it, read or find out what others think about it. God speaks to us through all these ways. • Have you heard God speaking through the Bible before? Reflect on what he said. If not, then find someone who has and ask them about it! • How can you put the modern equivalents of Deuteronomy 11 into practice?

Day 7: A case study in changing your life Get comfortable, because today’s story is a long one. Read 2 Kings 22:1 – 23:30. What do you think it was about God’s Word that was


soul survivor 2010 dig it: bible reading notes Articles

so life-changing for Josiah and the people? Josiah was already a godly man, but finding the Book of the Law changed his life. Reading the book, both Josiah and his people realised how much they still had to learn about God. It really upset Josiah that he had not been living God’s way. But Josiah and the Israelites didn’t just sit there thinking about it; they allowed God’s Word to change their lives. Reflect on some of the things Josiah did after reading God’s Word. He shook up Israel’s spiritual life and brought it into line with what God wanted. No messing about. • Think about the changes that reading God’s Word brought about. What does that tell you about God? • Has the Bible changed your life? If so, how? If not, what’s holding you back?

Day 8: Firm foundations Ask yourself, ‘What will happen to me when tough spiritual times come?’ Read Matthew 7:24–29. Have you heard this story before? What is it about? This is not about building your life on Jesus. Yes, the Bible describes God as a rock many times, but here the rock is hearing and obeying Jesus’ teachings. These is what we should build our life upon – loving God so much that you can’t do anything other than live God’s way. We need to put God’s teachings into

practice, just like Josiah. If we don’t, we’re in danger of being swept aside when life gets too much. We have nothing firm to stand on. We are like the people in James 1, who look in a mirror but then forget what we look like. • How wise are you? Do you hear and act on Jesus’ teachings that you read in the Bible? • Remembering your face or forgetting it? Rock or sand? Which one are you?

Day 9: The greatest commandment Who is your neighbour? Read Mark 12:28–34 and think about the order of relationships God is calling us to. Who should we put first? What order is your life in? The Bible is the story of God and his loving relationship with his people. Here, Jesus affirms that from the other direction – we should love the Lord with all that we are. Throughout the Bible, we hear about people who have followed this commandment (and those who haven’t!). Do we put God first? We must learn from the mistakes of those who get it wrong, and build our relationship with God on the firm foundations of listening to his Word and obeying it. • Think about this question again: what order is your life in? If God’s story in the Bible is for you, how do you respond to that? • What about that second

commandment? How can we love our neighbour as we love ourselves? How does that affect us in today’s ‘me’ culture?

Day 10: A challenge Where will you go from here in your Bible reading? Read Psalm 119 and underline any verses that particularly speak to you. (Read verses 97–112 if you’re short on time.) This psalm is almost a love song to God’s Word! Go back through the psalm and look for all the references to God’s teachings – they may be called ‘promises’ or ‘rulings’. What do they tell you about the writer’s attitude to Scripture? To the writer, God’s teaching is central – it tells him about God, helps him to live God’s way and reading it deepens his relationship with God (the most important thing in life, as we discovered from Mark 12:28–34). Now look at the verses you underlined. Do they match up with the references to God’s teachings? • How important is reading the Bible to you? • ‘God’s Word is a lamp for our feet and a light for our path’ (verse 105) – how do we see that happening when we go back home? What has God said to you at Soul Survivor? What are you going to do about it?

soul survivor 2010 20 questions with soul survivor Articles

Are we a mineral? No. Are we a vegetable? No. Are we nice. Yes! Here we go, 20… (err actually just 9) questions you always wanted to ask about Soul Survivor, with some quick and simple answers straight from the horse’s mouth! Why do people put their hands up and close their eyes in the main meetings? More often than not this happens during our times of sung worship. Closing your eyes isn’t weird, it’s just a simple way to focus purely on God without the distraction of everything your eyes see and process. People put their hands up for all sorts of reasons, but the most common we’re aware of is as a sign of praise… it’s a way in which our bodies physically express our surrender to God. Raising your hands isn’t a sign that you’re special, it’s just a sign you’re giving yourself, not just your words, to Jesus. Saying that, go to any football ground or concert in the world and people sing with arms wide open, so it can be a natural expression of fun, freedom and enjoyment too!

Why is there so much singing? The short answer is that we like it. The longer answer is that it’s Biblical. Throughout history people have expressed emotions through song,

page 84 |

and this is especially true of people’s relationship and interaction with God. The Bible has a whole book dedicated to songs (the Psalms), so it’s natural we continue this in our meetings today. But don’t think we’re just singing either. Our songs make up times of dedicated worship to God… it’s time to focus on him, thank him for what he’s done in our lives and tell him we love him. We know that worship is a lifestyle, but we’re also unapologetic about making it a specific part and time in our lives too. As we spend time focusing our words and lives again on God he genuinely does meet with us, and we’ve seen God do absolutely wonderful things amongst us simply during our times of sung worship. So, we’ll keep doing it!

Why is the music in the Main Meetings all a bit U2esque… what about some Drum N Bass? Brilliant question! Jesus loves it when we express ourselves in creative ways that connect with

our passions. If you like Drum N Bass, awesome! Get jungalistic for Jesus! We try in our main meetings to reflect some of the vibrance, creativity and diversity of all you lot, so sometimes the music is stripped down, sometimes louder, sometimes with some raps and decks… However, we know we can’t suit every taste. Some people just don’t get Drum N Bass and for those that do, we know that using stuff like rap, dance music or any other scene has to be authentic. We don’t want to offer naff and watered down versions of the stuff you’re into, it’ll end up turning you off even more! So we do what we’re good at. We know it doesn’t always float everyone’s boat, but the lyrics are often simple and clear with easy to grasp melodies which means everyone can join in! We hope you understand, and from looking around the main meetings most of you seem to love it and engage with it too!

How do the band get to be in the band? The guys on stage are all friends of ours. Some of them work for Soul Survivor, some are part of our church and some are mates we’ve made along the way. This isn’t an exclusive thing, we just only want to put people in places of responsibility that we know, love and trust. We can vouch for everyone in the band. They all love


soul survivor 2010 20 questions with soul survivor Articles Jesus and are involved in the life of a local church. Beyond that, they are, of course, fantastically skilled musicians! As music forms a key part of our main meetings we’re keen that all the musicians we use are of a quality level, both in terms of musical skill and character!

Why does everything else close when the main meetings are on? Our priority at Soul Survivor is to meet with God, and whilst we can do that throughout all our venues, time spent specifically focusing on him in song, in looking at the Bible and in waiting on his Spirit is a pretty significant opportunity to draw near to him and let him change us. Our events are unashamedly about Jesus, you can’t really miss that, and so we love it when everyone comes together to focus on him without the distractions of other venues being open. Beyond that we have thousands of volunteer team members working in all our venues across site and closing everything gives them a bit of a break and the chance to spend time specifically with God.

Why does Mike take the mick out of the people on stage? Mike is Mike. He has a strange sense of humour! But it’s also about who we are. Mike will joke with his friends and try and put them off as

much as possible whilst they are on stage, as he (and most of us) find it funny. He does exactly the same when he’s not on stage! The fact is we don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we hope we take God very seriously and having a lark about is our way of showing we’re not special, but God is. Don’t panic, as far as we know, Mike has never offended anyone, they are all his mates and they all find it funny too.

Why do you say you have very little money when thousands of us have spent nearly £100 each to be here?

Why aren’t there more toilets and showers?

Your ticket price covers the costs of the events, but that doesn’t mean just the few days each year we are at Stafford and Shepton Mallet. It takes a whole year to get everything organised and so we have to have an office, computers, staff and all that stuff to maintain and pay for. We are always looking for ways to encourage, equip and support you guys throughout the year, so we put time and effort into having stuff on the web, running tour dates and doing bits for youth leaders too.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness and that’s why we already have almost double the recommended amount of toilets and showers per head on site that health and safety regulations specify. We also have cleaners going round the toilets and showers continually from 7:00am ‘til 7:00pm and our production team toilet specialists do regular spot checks and respond to complaints about cleanliness as soon as humanly possible. Village Hosts also very kindly do a bit of disinfecting and tidying from time to time (they are brill).

Why are the food vans so expensive? Sorry about this, it’s not up to us. The food van vendors (aka the food van people) have ongoing contracts with the caterers that the showground employ and we have little say in what menus they offer and the prices they charge. Genuinely, we wish it was cheaper.

We hope we don’t talk about cash very much, so if you think we do, sorry. We know most of you are teenagers and don’t have lots of spare pennies floating around. Soul Survivor is a charity so that means we are not about making money.

We rely on people supporting us in order make all that possible and whilst most of it isn’t about the summer events, it all feeds into them and makes them what they are. If you’d like more info then check our latest Annual Review to read how we raise and spend the money we have (it isn’t too boring, it has pictures as well as stats): www.soulsurvivor.com/uk/give

We’d be happy to try and explain... there’s likely to be a reason behind the seeming madness!

soul survivor 2010 times of prayer ministry Essential Info

20 questions

One of the things we’re really passionate about at Soul Survivor is meeting with God. During the main meetings and celebrations we will always seek to involve God, by His Spirit, in what is going on. In real terms this means that there is often a call forward for prayer. This is a specific time to let God ‘minister’ to us – that is to work on and deal with things in our lives. Don’t worry if you’ve never had prayer offered in this way, or if you’re not sure how to pray. We have an experienced ‘Enabling Team’ about who will be around to give you a guiding hand, plus there’s a whole bunch of seminars on the Holy Spirit and praying for others too, so get along to one of them. There is no ‘right way’ to pray for each other. However, we’ve included these guidelines as they are tried and tested and tend to work quite

page 86 |

well! While you’re with us please stick to the advice given.

confusion for others around you. Thanks.

So, what happens?

Mouth: Don’t be afraid to ask

Ministry times usually begin with an invitation from someone on the main stage for people to respond to the Holy Spirit. In praying for people, the most important thing to remember is that this is God’s work, not ours. We are there to encourage those seeking God and to bless what the Holy Spirit is doing in people.

someone what they would like you to pray for and what God is doing – even if the Holy Spirit is moving powerfully on them (in Luke 18v40 Jesus asks the blind man ‘What do you want me to do for you?’). However, be aware of not turning this into a long conversation, this is a time for the Holy Spirit to offer counselling, not you! If appropriate speak into the situation or condition in Jesus’ name, be sensitive and recognise that you may be wrong. If you have a prophetic word or picture, offer these as a prayer or in such a way that the person being prayed for can make their own decision as to how appropriate they are. Never insist that what you have to say is a word from God but seek to build up, comfort and encourage the person you’re praying for (1 Corinthians 14v3).

God can use any of us to help people meet with him, but we’ve found that some of this common sense stuff is useful in making sure we don’t get in God’s way when we’re praying for others.

Sex: Only pray for someone who shares your gender. Prayer ministry can bring up all sorts of stuff and so it’s a tried and tested principle to always have at least one person with you who shares the same physical bits as the person you’re praying for. Even if you’re married we’d ask you to bear this in mind to avoid any

Hands: Encourage the person to receive from God and be still, rather than pray for themselves. Some people may show this attitude by


soul survivor 2010 times of prayer ministry Essential Info opening their hands in front of them. You can also lay your hands on them (if they are comfortable with that). This can be helpful for the person being prayed for and it’s Biblical, especially with regards to healing (in Mark 1 v40-45 Jesus heals a man of leprosy), or as a blessing (in Matthew 19v13-15 Jesus blesses the children). Be sensitive about where you place your hands.

Eyes: Keep your eyes open when you pray for someone. This means you are more aware of what God is doing and how the person is responding. It also means you can be prepared if they look like they may fall over in the power of the Spirit. If this does happen then please make sure they are in a comfortable position, not draped over anyone else and that their dignity is maintained (i.e. nothing is on show that shouldn’t be). Stay with them as long as needed and encourage them to go on receiving from God. It is not always necessary to stay with the person you have prayed with but keep a watchful eye on them and continue to check that they are safe.

Ears: Listen carefully both to the person you are praying with, and to God. Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and encouragement, be prepared to wait, this is God’s work, not yours. The person you are praying for may tell you about things that have happened in their life. Don’t appear to be shocked by any disclosures.

Remember that confidentiality is of the utmost importance but DO NOT promise to keep anything secret (especially with regards to claims of abuse). Your first contact in such a situation should be a member of the Enabling Team. They are there to support you, and the person you are praying with and will be able to take things further if necessary.

The whole body: Allowing the expression of feelings is very important and this might mean people cry, shake or respond in other ways to what God is doing. This is totally cool, but be careful not to suppress or to build up the situation. Alternatively some people might not seem to respond physically at all. That’s fine too. We want God to do what he needs to do and not get in the way of that and make sure people leave a time of ministry feeling loved and valued.

And finally… Not everyone is familiar with ministry and prayer times and some people are fearful when they become aware of God working through the Holy Spirit. We need to help people who are receiving, to feel comfortable and safe, and to encourage them to reach out to God. Always be sensitive and respectful, keep in mind how you would like to be prayed for and constantly ask for God’s help no matter how you are praying. Reassure those being prayed for that God has heard sincere prayers

and the cries of our hearts and encourage them to expect answers. Speak healing, peace and release in the name of Jesus and remember the place of repentance, forgiveness and being forgiven. If a request is made for further ministry then encourage the person to go to the ‘Chat Room’ on site where there will be people available to pray with them. It should also be encouraged that individuals should seek help from their home church where ministry can be continued. Do not make appointments to pray with people outside of the meeting. If extra prayer or counselling is needed then find a member of the Enabling Team and explain the situation. If at any time you feel out of your depth then ask for help. The Enabling Team will be moving around the venue and wearing bright pink badges. We all find ourselves in situations that we cannot handle alone. This is not failure and it’s often good to pray with others, plus it’s a great way to learn more! All these are tips to help you let God work through you. Remember: don’t worry. The Enabling team and the person leading the meeting will be giving directions and advice to everyone. The important thing is that you are ready and willing to pray for those around you.

soul survivor 2010 things you need to know Essential Info

20 questions

General Information 0303 333 1333 You can ring this number from 9am ‘til 5.30pm for any info or enquiries... or just pop along to the Info Office on site.

What to do in an emergency 1) Don’t panic 2) Don’t call 999 yourself. This can cause confusion and delay help getting through 3) Go to Comms, call Comms on 0303 333 1335 or get hold of the nearest member of team with a radio (Steward/Production etc) and ask them to contact the Comms team, who will in turn, contact the Emergency services on your behalf.

Emergencies back home Make sure you keep in touch with those back home and let them know how to reach you. Keep your mobile phone charged (you can do this for free at ‘The Office’ in the Toolshed) and let your family know the Soul Survivor General Information number in case someone back home needs to contact you (though we’d rather your Mum didn’t phone every 2

hours to check that her ‘little Jonny’ was doing ok as it’s his first time away from home… Ahhhh).

The Info Office Times: 9am-7pm Location: The red ‘i’ on the map Upon entering the Info Office you’ll notice there is never a shortage of confectionary or cake. And for good reason. The Info team are wild scary beasts. These astonishing and complex humans were discovered by Mike P on one of his overseas trips, in a remote corner of Russia. Mike spent some time in careful analysis of this rare breed, infamous with locals for their aggression and violence, and Mike made the astonishing discovery that, on consumption of sugar, this tribe are transformed from wild savage beasts into tender hearted young men and women with a particular knack for finding out answers and solving tricky problems. Now that we’ve got things under control, these ladies (and sometimes a rogue fella) are charming, delightful and eager to help – fuelled by the assortment of candy and cake that is regularly deposited on their desks. They’ll be delighted

to solve even the most complicated booking query or payment… just make sure to slip them a Mars bar first.

Information points Keep an eye out for the Info points around site for all the latest news and programme changes.

Comms Times: 24 hours a day Location: Next to Info tent The Soul Survivor Communications Gateway. All practicalities and problems are routed through the Comms team – from broken fences and flooding toilets through to fullon emergencies, these chaps will jump into action at just the glimpse of a yellow jacket. Pop in any time day or night.

Wristbands Your wristband is your passport to the fun times. Wear it loud and proud because: 1) It looks so darn foxy 2) Without it you won’t be allowed into any of the venues on site (and that would be a shame) 3) It’s a great way for us to identify you if you get trapped under a golf buggy


soul survivor 2010 things you need to know Essential Info

with only your arm visible (the arm with your wristband on) Please don’t lose it. If it falls off then hang on to it and head to info (don’t dilly dally on the way). If you do lose it entirely then we’ll have to charge you for a new one (£40 - eek). If you break your wristband and need a new one it’ll cost you a single pound.

Facilities for hearing impaired All main meeting venues have a loop system facility. Please see the Stewards in the venue for the exact locations. Main meetings will also be signed – please sit in the designated area of the venue for the best view.

Special needs We hope that everyone will have a brilliant week at Soul Survivor so we’ve arranged to have a bunch of lovely people ready and equipped to help if you or anyone in your group has any additional needs while you’re at the event. Kids groups have helpers available to work one to one with any children with special needs. To find out more about what’s on offer just pop in to the Info Office early in the week.

Stewards Male or female, anyone in a yellow jacket responds to the name Stewart. Listen to them and do what they say for they have been

entrusted with great power, and with great power comes great responsibility. They are here to ensure the rest of us are safe, well and happy, so if they ask you to do something, it’s best to listen… you wouldn’t like them when they are angry (they may turn into a big green hulk).

Village Hosts A Village Host is kind of like an air steward/ess but instead of little hats and silk ties, their uniform is a sturdy pair of wellies and a blizzard proof cag. They exist to make you feel welcome whilst you’re with us at Soul Survivor and if you have any questions about the journey ahead, the entertainments available or the refreshments on offer then these are the hosts with the most… Though if they start to panic then you know we’re all in trouble.

Gate times The Blue Gate is open daily from 7am-10pm. If you need to get on or off site outside of these times, use the Main Gate (or deliveries entrance).

Lost Property For some time now we’ve been looking after a lovely little 4-bed French chateau with no owner… but lost hats and coats seem to be more common than the other sort of property. In fact people leave all sorts of stuff lying around. If you realise your tent’s missing or your wellies have gone walk-about then

head to Comms to have a rummage through the lost property. And if you’re already home before you realise then don’t panic! Lost items will be donated to charity but we’ll hold on to them until 1st September so email lostproperty@ soulsurvivor.com to try and find anything that might have gone walkabout! For anything valuable ring the Soul Survivor office in Watford by 1st October.

The Post You can send all sorts in the post. We know a fella called Dave who sent half a banana to his Mum and wrote the address on it in biro. If you fancy sending something in the post then there’s a nifty postbox for just such an occasion though we probably won’t be allowed back if it gets filled up with fruit and veg. And as if sending post wasn’t advanced enough, you can also GET post on site! If you need to receive post just use these details: Your name AND your delegate reference number (starting B or C2K10…) Information c/o Soul Survivor Royal Bath and West Showground Shepton Mallet Bath, BA4 6QN Any post received will be kept in the Info Office until you come and claim it, so check regularly if you’re expecting something.

Exam Results

Food

A-level results are published on Thurs 19th August – which is Day 4 of Week C. For those getting A-level results there will be:

Cafes, Food Vans

Free computer access from 8am – 11am in the ToolShed

Happy Campers are not so named because of their diet of hearty tent-cooked delicacies, no sir-eee. The happiest campers know that if all else fails they can grab a tastie bacon sarnie or a salad baguette over at yonder food vans.

Free phone charging for people needing to ring home (we offer this for everyone at all the events) There will be members of our team on hand throughout the day to chat about results (based in the ‘Chat Room’) A ‘What next’ seminar for people who are thinking about going to Uni A Student Reception for people getting ready to go to Uni Beyond that what better way is there to celebrate/commiserate A-Level results day than by partying your socks off in Mr Boogies! We know it’s pretty stressful waiting for results so we want to do as much as possible to help you have a brilliant day – whatever the results!

page 90 |

So you’ve burnt the Smash and overcooked the Spam?! DO NOT PANIC.

Supplies

Running low on the essentials? Don’t worry, you can pick up an assortment of basic supplies on site:

Out of Gas?

The vans are open for the most part of the day and serve a whole range of food and treats.

Cafes Whether you’ve been up all night singing and playing the guitar or you didn’t sleep because your neighbours were, no doubt by the afternoon of Day 2 you’ll be ready for some hard core cake action. Sugar is a compulsory ingredient in everything on all the Café menus, plus most also have a hearty line up of fairtrade, ethical and organic produce too.

You need the Gas Man. This superhuman salesman appears from nowhere and disappears without a trace. He regularly pops up behind the loos on Orange 3. Catch him at the following times: Day 1: 5-6pm Days 2-5: 8.30am-9.30am, 12.30pm2pm and 5pm-6pm Departure Day: 8.30am-9.30am

Freezer Packs You can exchange (for free) or buy (for £2) frozen ice packs for your cold storage between 9:00am-9:30am and 4:30pm-5.00pm in the wooden building behind The Underground

Onsite Shops The onsite shops are like that cupboard that your mum’s got where you can find everything you’ll ever need, from batteries and toothpaste to sweets and groceries. Plus they get daily deliveries of fresh milk and bread.


soul survivor 2010 things you need to know Essential Info

The main shop is located between Cafe Uno and Information and is open from 8am – 6pm. This year we also have a second shop up on the Pink Villages so you don’t have to carry all those cans of pop up the hill to your tents. This shop will be slightly more limited in stock and opening times may be subject to change (but at time of writing opening times are set to be 8:00am-6:00pm). For those of you with a bunch of people to cater for you can preorder milk, bread and other bits. Just pop in and chat to the lovely shop staff at the start of the week.

Onsite camping shop This is new! Just outside the Information Tent you’ll find another big tent, but this one isn’t full of computers and databases. Nope, it’s full of tents and camping equipment that you can buy. It’s a brilliant idea as every year people forget to bring one or all of the following: mallets, tent poles, tent pegs, tents, cooking stoves, gas canisters, sleeping bags and sometimes kitchen sinks. Pop in if you can relate to Mr Forgetful… This one isn’t run by Soul Survivor, but a company called Praxis, so they sort out prices and things like refunds on everything you buy there (we’ll keep out of that one).

Local Shops & Directions Nearby in Shepton Mallet you can find a big Tesco, Argos and a brand new Aldi. To get to Shepton Mallet just turn left out of the main or Blue gate, follow signs to Shepton Mallet town centre and you’ll spot the superstore signs before you find yourself too lost. But be warned... Don’t walk along the A471. It’s a very fast road, and one of the main lorry routes across Somerset. Getting hit by a lorry would hurt. A lot. We don’t want that to happen to any of you, so please stay safe.

Health and Safety Fire Regulations

Please make sure that when you pitch up, you leave at least three metres between you and the next chap (check with your Village Host if you’re not sure). And it might seem a good idea at the time, but BBQ-ing inside a one man tent is asking for trouble. Be fire savvy and keep all cooking supplies away from the tent.

Sickness Sickness spreads quickly on a campsite. Do your bit by washing your hands often (especially before eating) and letting us know of any broken or dirty facilities on site (pop in to Comms or the Info Office). If anyone in your group falls ill* during the event then please keep them in their tent and contact the

First Aid team. The First Aid Centre is clearly marked on the site map. In an emergency ring 0303 333 1335. *e.g. sudden fever (a high body temperature of over 38C or 100.4F), and sudden cough or any signs of diarrhoea and/or vomiting

First Aid The amazing First Aid team are on hand 24/7 so there will always be someone available to help. The Medical Centre is open from 9am – 7pm (marked on the site map) and outside of these times you can go to Comms and they’ll radio for medical help like the proper troopers they are. If you have an ongoing medical condition that may cause you problems during the event, it would be really helpful if you could pop in and let the First Aid team know when you arrive. They’ll also look after any medication you need to take on a daily basis.

Communion

We love to end the week together by sharing in Communion. To do this we start the main meeting at the earlier time of 10am (not 11am). There is non alcoholic wine available as well as wheat/gluten free bread – look out for directions from whoever is leading the meeting so you know where to go!

soul survivor 2010 get green with soul survivor Essential Info

We all know the drill by now. The world is in a bit of a mess. We’re not getting over the top and apocalyptic on you, but the facts are there for all to see. The human population of the world has at least trebled since 1900 and that means more people creating more rubbish and doing more things that impact our environment. Climate change, caused by human pressure on the world’s finite resources, is becoming a major political concern. The thing is, the Bible makes it clear that as followers of Jesus we’re called to care for and be stewards of God’s amazing world and we can start doing that right now whilst we’re at Soul Survivor...

page 92 |

What we’re doing…

For our part we’re trying to make sure all our events have a lot less of a negative impact on the environment and our global neighbours than they could do. Over the years we’ve been reducing the amount of stuff we print and are increasing the importance of what we do online and via email (and when we do have to print stuff it’s all on paper that is from sustainable forests). Plus all our t-shirts/hoodies are ethically sourced and all teas and coffees served onsite are, of course, fair-trade.


soul survivor 2010 get green with soul survivor Essential Info

What you can do to help…

But that’s just the start. Really, whilst at our events, we can only do so much, the rest comes down to you. So, make sure you’re up to speed on the things below, and join in the getting greener fun:

Recycle rubbish: All over site

Go re-useable: Got some plastic

you’ll find recycling points to throw away your mess. There are separate bins for glass, plastics, cans and paper, all of which are ready to accept your recyclable deposits.

plates and cutlery? Although you have to wash up they are better than paper plates that just create more and more waste (all the plates and cutlery in the Cafes are bio-degradeable, so that’s a good option too). You can also buy a re-usable thermal mug for a bargain price (head to the Soul Survivor stand in the ToolShed for more). The good thing about the mugs is that by using them you’ll be helping us to reduce the amount of paper cups we use on site.

Recycle unused food: Any non perishable unopened food that you have left over (preferably not some bit of Tupperware stuffed full of last night’s bolognese) can be brought to Seminar A from 5pm on Day 5 until the morning of the day you leave. There’ll be space to leave your leftover foodstuffs and we’ll make sure it finds a good new home with local charities and organisations… which is nice.

Keep it clean: Your bit of the camp site is your home for just 5 days, but when you leave, insects, grass, nice plants, squirrels, rabbits and

occasionally other happy campers make it a home too and they’d love to not have your mess and rubbish still hanging around. Do make the effort when you’re packing up (and throughout your stay) to leave your pitch clean and tidy. We, and the insects, will love you for it.

Water it down: If you can, take a quick shower and make sure that you fully turn off the taps in the loos and when collecting water from different points around the camp site.

soul survivor 2010 the soul survivor bible in one year Articles

“The Bible is a guide to life, it tells us right from wrong. There is no question that it doesn’t answer and it is the practical handbook to the Christian life. But it’s also so much more than that! It’s the story of relationship between us and God – a relationship where we find the love, joy, peace, identity, adventure and purpose that each of us seek. That’s why the Bible isn’t primarily a list of rules; it’s a story of love. It’s also God’s introduction to who he is. If we want to get to know him better this is where we start”. Andy Croft

Siterules

The Bible is full of brilliant stuff! It’s God’s word, but sometimes getting into the habit of reading it regularly can be a bit tricky! Well, we want to help! This September we’re trying something new: as a Soul Survivor family we want to read the WHOLE of the Bible over ONE year. We figured if we do it on our own we might just get distracted and find reasons to stop every now and then but hopefully together we’ll spur each other on and stay the distance! We’re launching a Soul Survivor Bible in One Year so we’ll all be working on the same readings and we’ll have a website running alongside it where we can talk about the things we’re reading and share our thoughts and questions. There will also be commentaries on there from the likes of Mike, Andy, Ali and others to try and help us make sense of what God is saying to us. It’s the first time we’ve ever tried this as a big group and we’re really excited about all getting back together next summer and seeing how much difference committing to God’s word has made to our walk with him. It only takes 15 minutes a day to read the whole of the Bible in 12 months so how about getting involved and joining in the challenge?! You can buy your copy/copies at our stand in the ToolShed at very special site-only prices. You’ll be able to grab a paperback version, hardback version, or a pack of ten paperbacks at a discounted price! Check www.soulsurvivor.com/bibleinoneyear for the latest updates, to join in discussion and to share your Bible reading thoughts!

soul survivor 2010 missed a seminar or main stage talk? Essential Info

What’s the most common question people who come along to Soul Survivor ask? Nope, it’s not ‘how old is Mike Pilavachi?’ (he’s eighty two if you’re interested). From our extensive research it’s more like ‘Oh no, I missed an awesome sounding seminar. Gutted. Is there any way I can hear or watch it?’. We’ve all been there. You might just have overslept and missed a seminar, or had to make an impossible choice between two great sessions. So what do you do? Well, if you find yourself in this predicament we’re here

to help. And so is technology. Every year we record all Siterules

the seminars so you can buy audio copies of any sessions that you’ve missed. But there’s more. This year we’re also filming all the seminars too, so barring a few (very likely) technical glitches, we will also be able to offer DVDs of the complete seminar timetable too.

Where do I get them from? Firstly you need to decide what seminar you’d like to hear. Flick through the descriptions in the Day Planner. At the bottom of each entry you should find a little number starting 0400 (Week B) or 0500 (Week C). Just remember that number and do one of the following:

Whilst at Soul Survivor:

When you’re back home:

Pop along to the ToolShed and head over to the Soul Survivor area. If you chat nicely to one of the team behind the tills they’ll help you in either buying an Audio CD or a video DVD of any of the talks. We’re aiming to have the CDs and DVDs of sessions available by the end of the week (depending on how good our technical skills are), so you should be able to pick up any session to take home with you. If not, you can order the session and we’ll send it out to you in the post (by end of September). Costs for CDs are £2 and DVDs £4.

Get online and head to www.soulsurvivor.com/uk/shop. Our nice, new and shiny online store has a whole array of things from music to hoodies, as well as all the talks from Soul Survivor 2010! You’ll also be able to order any of the talks as mp3s or movie downloads too hopefully from the end of September or early October. Exciting eh?

soul survivor 2010 site rules Essential Info

Site Rules

Please don’t break the rules. Now you might say ‘Jesus broke loads of rules… he even spat in someone’s eye’. Well, that might be true, but with that kind of logic we’d also all have to grow beards and become carpenters (which would be fun). We don’t want to fall out, so we’ll invite you to our birthday party if you promise to stick to the following rules: 1) Youth Leaders are responsible for their under 18’s at all times. 2) Strictly no alcohol on site. 3) Strictly no drugs or drug paraphernalia on site - except for medical purposes. Anyone found in possession of drugs or alcohol will be evicted from the site and refused further entry to the event. Furthermore, all drug-related incidents will be dealt with by our Site Management team and the Police Representatives on site. 4) After arrival, all vehicles must be moved to the designated car parks in order to comply with official Fire & Safety regulations. The only cars allowed on site during Soul Survivor are emergency vehicles or those displaying a valid disabled sticker. Cars may be forcibly removed if they are parked illegally on the campsite.

5) Wristbands must be worn at all times - they are the only way to get into venues. There is a charge to replace lost ones. 6) Smoking is not permitted inside buildings, marquees or individual tents.

7) No mixed tent/caravan/ accommodation on site i.e. No boys and girls sleeping in the same space unless married. 8) Ball games are to be finished by 10pm even if you’re convinced that an extra few minutes could see you making an historic come back from a 5-0 defeat. 9) Roller blading, skateboarding or cycling can only occur after dark if you have appropriate lighting (i.e. have a light on your bike or are in a well lit area for roller blading and skateboarding).

13) No fly posting… help us respect the property on the showground. 14) Pets are not allowed on site - except guide dogs (please go to the Information Office on your arrival). 15) There will be no access into any area that has been marked out of bounds by red and white tape. 16) There are strict guidelines relating to the use of generators on site. Please speak to a member of the team at Comms if you need to use a generator while at Soul Survivor.

11) Tents or caravans can only be moved to another village by registering with Information. This is essential so we can contact you in the event of an emergency and to maintain site security.

17) Soul Survivor wishes to make clear that it does not favour sectarian propaganda or proselytising within the Christian fellowship. This means any individual or group that uses Soul Survivor and its facilities for such purposes does so against the spirit of the event. The organisers reserve the right to cancel any such person or group’s booking and escort them off the site/ premises immediately. If you think someone is trying to force their views on you and others please do let us know immediately (come to Information) so we can deal with the situation.

12) No speeding. When arriving/leaving the showground or unloading/packing up please observe the 10mph speed limit at all times. Please also note, driving lessons are not permitted on site - even though your friends may well be justified in begging you to take more.

18) Soul Survivor does not operate holiday insurance or cancellation schemes. We strongly recommend that you consult an insurance broker if you require cover. Soul Survivor cannot be held responsible for loss of damage to persons or personal property.

10) However hot it gets, and tempting it seems, there is to be no swimming in the lake.
