Soul survivor week 1

W

e’re so excited you’ve decided to spend some of your summer with us! We love being back here in Somerset with you – if you’re an old friend then welcome back. If you’re a new friend – it’s great to meet you! Over the next few days we’re going to be looking at the book of Acts together to get some inspiration from the first days of the church. We’ll be looking at what defines us as the people of God, how we’re changed and empowered by the Holy Spirit and how worship is central to our lives as followers of Jesus. Plus we’ve got some great venues around the site for you to enjoy – including a Soulympic Café where you can watch highlights of the Games on a giant screen. Take a look through the rest of the programme to make sure you don’t miss a thing! We’re also really excited that you will be some of the first people we can introduce the Soul Survivor Youth Bible to! We’re passionate about finding ways to get into God’s word and we hope that this brand new Bible, packed full of great articles and insights, will help deepen your relationship with God long after we’ve packed up the tents and started counting down until Soul Survivor 2013. We hope you have a brilliant time over the next few days hanging out with your mates and enjoying everything that’s going on around site. Most of all we hope that you meet with Jesus and that you leave more in love with him, having a greater understanding of how much he loves you. Let’s pour out our worship to him and be open and expectant for what he will do among us.

Love Mike

It was 1993. The Power Rangers had just burst onto the scene and the world was about to discover the cinematic wonder of Jurassic Park. However, on a Somerset showground an event was taking place for the first time. Now, 19 years later, you have decided to come to that same event and we are chuffed to have you here.

INTRO INFO whO WE ARE

God planted the idea of Soul Survivor in the mind of Mike, a Greek youth worker and ex-accountant. Mike loved the idea of loads of young people gathering together to have a great time and, most importantly, to meet with Jesus. The Soul Survivor events have found their homes not only here in Somerset, but up in Stafford, where we have been hanging out with more of you guys since 2008. We love coming back year after year to see your lovely smiling faces! What’s it really all about?

E

verything we do is about Jesus! We love worshipping Jesus, we love discovering more about his character and learning what it means to follow him in our everyday lives. So that’s what we focus on during these five days we have together!

A few things you might like to know about us:

W

e’re all about relationship. Firstly the most important relationship any of us can have is with God. But as Christians God also calls us to be in relationship with our church family and to take his love, grace and mercy to those around us who don’t know him. If you’ve not hung around with us before you’ll quickly see that we like to joke around, have fun and mess about. That’s because we don’t take ourselves too seriously but we do take God very seriously and whilst having fun we try and honour him in everything we do.

Who’s who?

M

ike P directs all things Soul Survivor. If you see someone wearing what looks like your mother’s curtains, it will probably be Mike in one of his colourful and quirky shirts. He has also been known to take hairstyling tips from Ronald McDonald. Mike will be joined on stage by his good mate and Associate Director of Soul Survivor, Andy Croft. Andy is a real whiz when it comes to theology; to the point where he achieved a First Class degree from Cambridge in the subject. He will be leading our Bible studies in the morning meetings.

What day is it again?

In the Soul Survivor office we haven’t quite mastered days of the week, but we are ace with numbers. So, while you’re here with us the days go as follows:

WEEK B

Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday

= = = = =

DAY ONE DAY TWO DAY THREE DAY FOUR DAY FIVE

WEEK C = = = = =

DAY ONE DAY TWO DAY THREE DAY FOUR DAY FIVE

Just remember to change back when you go home. Texting your friends about going to the cinema on Day 3 may seem rather odd! GOT SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?

Soul survivor week 1

Worship

O

The BIG TOP Twice a day we all get together to have what we call a main meeting (because we can’t think of a cooler name for them). We think these are the highlight of our time together at Soul Survivor because it’s brilliant to all be together in one place, worshipping God, hearing from his word and waiting on his Spirit. But what does all that really mean?

ne of the ways we can praise God and tell him how much we love him is through singing to him and there are plenty of examples in the Bible of people worshipping God through song. Worship is more than words and music though; singing to God is a reflection of the attitudes of our hearts and an opportunity to encounter Jesus. The worship will be led by a band at the front and the words will be on the screens to make it nice and easy for everyone to see. We aren’t the most formal of groups so we’re OK with however you want to worship - feel free to stand, sit, sing loudly or quietly, be still or dance around (just try and be aware of the people around you!)

INTRO INFO THE M AIN MEETING

Bible teaching

T

he Bible is the best selling book of all time! An incredible 30 million Bibles are distributed every year and it’s available in over 1,100 languages. But the most exciting fact about the Bible is that it is the word of God! Sometimes however, a book so big and one that was written so many years ago means we need a hand trying to unravel some of its mysteries. We will spend time trying to explore what the Bible talks about and relating it to everyday situations. Find the Bible a bit boring? Hopefully we’ll be able to change your mind by the end of the week! God’s word isn’t dry, boring and meaningless – it may actually surprise you how relevant it is to your life. We want to have a laugh whilst learning from God’s word so relax and enjoy!

Prayer ministry

S

ince Jesus isn’t still with us in human form, he gave us the Holy Spirit to live in us. Whilst we can’t see him, we can feel the effect of the Holy Spirit in us as he heals, equips, convicts and empowers us. The Holy Spirit is always with us, but during our main meetings we make time and space to ask God to increase that presence a bit like he did at Pentecost (you can read about that in Acts 2). The Holy Spirit also gives us gifts like prophecy and the ability to speak in tongues. During ministry times we don’t want to hype stuff up, we just want to encourage you to meet with God and engage with him. There’s no pressure to respond in a certain way, just try to focus on Jesus and invite

him to do what he would like to do in your life. This is a great chance to let someone pray for you or to pray for others. Have a read through our prayer guidelines on page p82 if you would like to pray for other people. There will also be an Enabling Team around who have been praying for people for a while. They’re there in case you want to ask any questions and to give you a bit of guidance, so look out for their badges and feel free to approach them at any point during the ministry times.

OUTLINE OF A DAY 01 8.30am – Yawn! Time to get up, stretch off and launch yourself headfirst into another day! 9am – Youth leaders – if your group can make cereal without setting fire to a tent, pop along to the SoulNet breakfast. We’ll have a coffee and a croissant waiting for you… 02 9.30am – The first of our three daily seminar slots! Start the day off by learning about a massive range of topics from a group of brilliant speakers. Maybe choose the night before to avoid any early morning indecision!

11am – Come on down to the main meeting so we can all hang out together. Everything else shuts during the main meetings so we can focus on God, worship him and hear from his word. We’ll also make space to pray for each other and see what God wants to do. 1pm onwards –There is loads to do in the afternoons. You can play sports, attend a workshop, go to more seminars (they start at 2.30pm and 4pm), have a browse around the ToolShed or take it easy in one of our cafés. Take your pick!

INTRO INFO SAFETY FIRST

03

SAFETY FIRST We know you’re a smart bunch but don’t forget to stay safe while you’re here. We do our best to keep the site a friendly place but of course we can’t vouch for everyone so:

Stay with at least one friend when wandering around at night.

Put the emergency phone number 0303 333

1335 in your mobile and call it instead of 999

Let your youth leader know where you’re off

04

to and keep your mobile on so you can get hold of each other easily if you need to. Even if someone seems really nice, don’t go off with them on your own. There are plenty of safe places you can hang out. So hang on to your common sense, keep your usual wits about you and help us keep Soul Survivor a happy, smiley and safe place!

Testimonies

W 6pm – Venues close until the evening. Catch your breath, bask in the evening sunshine and grab some dinner. 03 7pm – We’re back together again! Yep, head down to the main meeting venue for some more worship, teaching and ministry. 04 9.15pm ish – More time to enjoy the cafés, sports and ToolShed, or you can try our dance venue Blueprint, watch a film at Celluloid or head over to Late Night Worship. All this evening stuff goes on ‘til about 11.30pm when it’s time to get back in that sleeping bag and get some sleep. You’ll need some more energy so you’re ready to do it all again tomorrow!

e love hearing stories. We once heard a story about a man who ate a computer keyboard. Bizarre! But the stories we love the most are your stories. We love it when people write to us, email us, tweet us, Facetube and youbook message us to tell us what God has being doing in their lives! Big or small, life changing or seemingly minor let us know how you have experienced God whilst at Soul Survivor. You can email us at testimonies@soulsurvivor.com or tweet us at @soulsurvivorGB

TELL US WHAT YOU THINK! We hope you’ve had a brilliant five days here at Soul Survivor! We’d love to hear about your experiences, what you’ve loved and what we could improve. When you get home we’ll send you an email with a link to our website. There you’ll find a questionnaire; fill it in and you could win a brilliant prize (as well as our gratitude!).

D

o you remember in Aladdin when that big tiger rose out of the sand and Aladdin, Abu and the magic carpet went down into the cave of wonders? Well, arm yourself with a heavy dose of imagination and stepping into the ToolShed could be just like that! Well, you know, apart from the lack of magic carpets and monkeys…and sand… We’re also running a bit short on diamonds, rubies, pearls and the finest gold but we do have exhibitors coming out of our ears! They are from a whole bunch of organisations that are here to equip you on your walk with Jesus so you’ll find inspiring charities to get involved in, brilliant resources to take home with you, and lots of friendly people who’d love to have a chat. Day One: 9.15pm–11.30pm, Days Two to Five: 1pm–6pm and 9.15pm–11.30pm Map Ref: F4

equip you in your walk with Jesus. That means none of them should be getting upset because you don’t quite get their theological angle on things. If you feel like you’ve been accosted by an over-zealous exhibitor, then pop into Information and let one of our team know.

Most of the items that are sold in the ToolShed are either resources or a way of generating money to support the work of a charitable trust. We know lots of you like having a browse around but the absolute last thing we want is for anyone to feel pressured to spend any cash. We’re not trying to make money out of you. F rom time to time Mike & Co might mention a book, CD or DVD on mainstage. Just so you know, there are no marketing deals going on – if they say they like it and think you will too then they mean they like it and think you will too (not that someone is paying them to push the product at you). Basically what this boils down to is the fact we like you, we think you’re pretty special and we don’t want to treat you like marketing fodder. We want you to be able to relax and have a good time at Soul Survivor.

Seminars are teaching sessions (a bit like those in the main meeting) but they last for about an hour. We have a huge range of seminar topics so that you can pick the subjects that are most interesting and relevant to you.

Every day there are three seminar slots: one at 9.30am, one at 2.30pm and one at 4pm. As there are so many, we have sorted them out into helpful categories for you:

UP

The ‘Up’ stream of seminars will look at how we communicate with God. There will be a whole range of seminars based around topics such as worship, prayer and the Bible.

IN

This stream takes a look at the things that are going on inside, so seminars will explore working on our character, developing our gifts and dealing with things that have hurt us.

OUT

All of these seminars will focus on how we work out our faith in the world around us so will focus on things like evangelism, serving the poor and standing for justice.

I

f you can’t make a seminar, or if two of your favourites clash, you can always pick up a recording from the ToolShed or grab it online when you get home. You’ll need a code which identifies each seminar uniquely – these are on the seminar day planners next to the seminar title. Jot down the number and quote this when you buy your copy of the recording and we’ll be able to find the exact one you’re looking for. Simple!

Soul Man MEETS Soul Sista: Sex – Mike Pilavachi, Andy Croft & Esther Davenport Sex! There, we said it! Too often sex isn’t talked about in church, we get all embarrassed.

A brand new you: forgiven and accepted – Mr Prince Whether you have just met with Jesus or you are making your way back to him, the Bible tells us that God can offer us a new start, free from the guilt of mistakes, and full of hope for the future. THE FRINGE (24009)

No ceiling to hope – Patrick Regan When you are bombarded with images and headlines of broken families, poverty and war, the possibility of seeing transformation seems very distant. How can we let go of our own agendas and see things from God’s perspective of hope, love and restoration?

How do I tell my friends of other faiths about Jesus? – Andrew Smith Often friends from other faiths are interested in what we believe and why, so what’s the best way to tell them about Jesus? CELLULOID SCREEN 1(24016)

GROUNDS (24012)

Soul SistA: World shakers – Esther Davenport We are all different and each have a unique place in the world. Whether you feel like you are shaking the world up already or you feel like you aren’t good enough, this is a great opportunity to let God inspire us about how we can change the world.

What on earth is the church for? – Graham Cray The church is not about the people who go to it, but the people who don’t. This seminar is an introduction to what the Bible says the church is for and more importantly, how we can ‘do’ church effectively in our own communities.

CELLULOID SCREEN 2 (24021)

So what is the Gospel? And what do we do about it? – Fuzz Kitto 1 Corinthians 15 is one of the first descriptions of the gospel of Jesus, giving us great insight into the work Jesus has set out for us to do. How can we share it and become Gospel People? UNDERGROUND (24022)

Loving and living the Bible – Matt Summerfield It’s time to discover how engaging with the Bible can literally change your life!  This is not a book of “Do’s” and “Don’ts” – it’s God’s powerful living story that brings us life, freedom and purpose. GROUNDS (24029)

Under new management – Mr Prince So you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus – amazing! But what happens now? What does it mean to let God have control over your life? THE FRINGE (24030)

What does God think of other faiths? –Andrew Smith What does the Bible tell us about God’s attitude towards other faiths and the people who follow them? CELLULOID SCREEN 2 (24035)

Worship Q&A – Soul Survivor team Mike, Beth and the team will do their best to answer your questions, whether they are on values and why we do things the way we do them, or a practical muso type question. BLUEPRINT (24036)

Has science disproved Christianity? – Andy Croft Lots of atheists argue modern science has ruled out a credible belief in God, making it seem like he is a superstitious idea from time gone by. Is it possible to have a real thought-through faith yet pursue science at an academic or professional level? Do we need to throw our brains away to be Christians?

Free 2 Be – David Westlake Sometimes it feels like we’re constantly being told to, ‘Buy this, do that, go there.’ By focusing on God and building key habits and rhythms into our lives, we can get back to the things that matter and really be free to act. SOUL ACTION CAFÉ (24042)

Who cares how many camels they HAD? – Tom & Suzie Brock Why is the word of God an important tool for followers of Jesus? Where do you even start with a book so big? Come along for some important Bible reading tips. CELLULOID SCREEN 2 (24043)

2.30 PM How to interpret the Bible – Chris Lane How does the Bible apply to our lives today?

Soul Man meets Soul Sista: Relationships – Mike Pilavachi, Andy Croft & Esther Davenport Mates, pals, BFFs, whatever we call our friends, we understand how important they are to us.

Join Andy, Mike and the team as we chat about how to be the best mate you can be, and how to understand those who aren’t like you. BIG TOP (24046)

Women in Leadership? - But what about Timothy? – Graham Cray At Soul Survivor we are convinced that the Bible teaches that all leadership roles in the Church are open equally to women and men.

Leaders in the lion’s den – Pete Wynter Do you want to transform the world? Do you think God might be calling you to leadership in some form of society? Come and discover the secrets of how a young man - Daniel - stepped up and became an inspirational leader. CELLULOID SCREEN 2 (24048)

Radical Discipleship – Jason & Rachel Gardner Tired of hearing about how the Church is getting smaller and smaller in the west?

Is it possible to have a real thought-through faith yet pursue science at an academic or professional level? Do we need to throw our brains away to be Christians? SEMINAR A (25032)

How to interpret the Bible – Chris Lane How does the Bible apply to our lives today? Why do we think it’s wrong to steal but OK to wear clothes made of different types of material when both are forbidden in the Old Testament? Chris gives us some useful tools for dealing with these issues and many more important ones!

The bear, the lion and the giant – Pastor Clement Wong Having had his training in the meadows fighting off the bears and the lions, David ended up killing a giant and becoming a champion. Do not despise the days of small beginnings; they may be preparation for the giants. BLUEPRINT (25039)

Free 2 Be – David Westlake Sometimes it feels like we’re constantly being told to, ‘Buy this, do that, go there.’ By focusing on God and building key habits and rhythms into our lives, we can get back to the things that matter and really be free to act. SOUL ACTION CAFÉ (25040)

No ceiling to hope – Patrick Regan When you are bombarded with images and headlines telling you that families are broken, communities are dangerous, poverty and war are ever present and that you are not good enough the way you are, the possibility of seeing transformation seems very distant.

Evangelism – Cameron Bennett Build up the confidence to share your faith in a practical and real way! This session will empower you to step up and share the hope, truth and love that God has for this generation.

Soul Man meets Soul Sista: Relationships – Mike Pilavachi, Andy Croft & Esther Davenport Mates, pals, BFFs, whatever we call our friends, we understand how important they are to us.

ARTICLES Who, what, where, when and why?

Who, what, where, when and WHY?! These are the pages where we try and answer some of the things you might find confusing about Soul Survivor and our events….. Why do people do weird things when the Holy Spirit comes in power?

G

ood question! People do all sorts of things when they meet with God – sometimes they cry, sometimes they laugh, sometimes they make weird noises or move their body in strange ways, other times they are completely quiet and still. There’s nothing to be worried about with any of that, it’s just the way different people respond to God’s presence. If you’re unsure about an experience you’ve had, chat to one of the Enabling team but equally if you’re not meeting with God in this way, don’t worry. The important thing is that we stay focused on Jesus and that as much as is humanly possible, we don’t hype stuff up. We just want to leave room for the Holy Spirit to work in our lives. The thing that changes us isn’t what noises we make in ministry, it’s the presence of God in our lives.

Why do we have to sit on the floor?

S

orry if you find it uncomfortable sitting on the floor but the basic answer is because we want to fit lots of us into a small space! Chairs would drastically cut the number of people we can get in to the main meetings and also mean there’s not as much freedom in worship to move around.

Why do people close their eyes and put up their hands in worship?

O

ften in times of sung worship people close their eyes which can look a bit strange if you’re not used to it. There’s nothing weird going on though, mostly people do it to shut out other distractions and help them focus on God. Raising your hands high is a sign of praise, or some would say they are reaching for God. Sometimes people turn their palms upwards as a sign that they are making themselves open to receive from God. Everyone expresses prayer and praise to God differently but most would be open to explaining their actions if you ask politely and at an appropriate time, so don’t be shy!

Why is the music in the main meetings all led on guitar?

I

n heaven all music will be led on guitar so we’re getting in good practice. Just kidding. We believe God loves it when we offer him genuine praise using any musical style but because there are so many of us gathered together we have to find one style that suits the majority of people. We know it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but hopefully the words and the melodies are accessible for most people and the feedback we get tells us most of you guys love it. We try and involve different musical styles where we can. This year we are being joined by our good friends Rend Collective who will be co-leading worship with our resident worship leaders throughout the week. However the last thing we want to do is try and pretend we know what we’re talking about when it comes to all different styles of music! So we’ll stick to what we know best whilst encouraging everyone to find the musical style that suits them.

ARTICLES Who, what, where, when and why?

How do the band get to be the band and speakers get to be speakers?

E

veryone who is part of the band or who speaks at our events is someone we know, trust and are in relationship with. When we put someone ‘up front’ we have to make sure we know who they are, that they love Jesus and that they are part of a church back home (so we know they are accountable and that they are committed to growing in their relationship with Jesus). It’s not about being exclusive and we’re not saying the people ‘up front’ are more special than anyone else; it’s about making sure we can vouch for the integrity of the people who are serving you in these ways.

What about bands? Can I recommend someone or volunteer my band to play at gigs?

How can I get the lyrics/ chord charts to the songs?

M

any are available in song books you can buy from our stand in the ToolShed so pop along and have a chat with the team.

Why does everything else close when the main meetings are on?

T

he most important thing we can do when we all get together is to focus on Jesus and that’s why we make a big deal of our main meetings. We don’t want there to be any other distractions because we know that Jesus is worthy of our full attention. Also, because all the venues around site are staffed by volunteers, closing them twice a day gives the teams a chance to have a break and meet with God for themselves.

I

f you’re in a band who already has a good following and lots of live experience, you can send us a demo CD before November and we’ll have a listen. We love how many of you are passionate about music but unfortunately because we get loads of stuff sent in, we can’t always respond personally.

ARTICLES Who, what, where, when and why?

Why do you say you don’t have much money when it costs us around £100 each to be here?

W

e really try not to talk about money very much so we hope you don’t think we go on about it. Soul Survivor is a charity which means we don’t make any money – everything we get is put back into running events and creating resources for you. Ticket prices for our events cover the main costs of putting them on (like hiring the showground and the equipment we need) but we also have an office we need to run round the year to make sure the events happen like they’re supposed to. This means we need to rent office space, pay staff and buy computers and stuff. Plus there’s lots of stuff we do that we don’t get any money for – like updating the website and putting resources on there for you guys. So ticket prices don’t cover everything and the only way we can keep doing what we do is by people donating money to help us pay for it all. If you’d like to find out more about ways you can support us, please see page 67.

Why is Mike so rude to people on stage?

C

ertain things make Mike laugh and taking the mick out of his mates is definitely one of them! But don’t worry, he wouldn’t be that rude to someone who didn’t know that he loved them and was for them. We like having a laugh in our meetings because we don’t take ourselves too seriously. But we do take God seriously and we hope we don’t cause any offence when we’re mucking about.

Why aren’t there more toilets and showers?

W

e make sure that we have twice the recommended amount of toilets and showers than the Health and Safety regulations suggest. But we know that some of you still have to queue for your shower in the morning, sorry. Try and help each other out by being quick; or think about having a shower at a different time of day, like before you go to bed when there are less people waiting! We have an amazing team of cleaners who work from 7am to 7pm to keep everything clean and fresh for you. But if you spot any problems, do let our Comms team know and they will get it sorted.

Got a question we didn’t answer?

Email info@soulsurvivor.com and we’ll try and include it in future.

ARTICLES OFFERING

This year the offering will be going to the following organisations and causes: Soul Action

A

third of all the money given this summer will go to the work of Soul Action. This is a joint partnership between Soul Survivor and Tearfund that’s all about putting God’s heart for justice into action and helping people around the world fight poverty. If you’d like to find out more about Soul Action, have a little read of the article on page 68.

The persecuted church

T

here are some places in the world where being a Christian isn’t very easy. There are countries where going to church is a criminal offence and praying in public will have you arrested. We have friends in Central Asia and we try as best we can to resource and equip them in their walks with Jesus despite the difficult environment they find themselves in.

Young leaders

S

omething we are really passionate about is raising up young leaders and over the years we’ve had the privilege of working with people who have gone on to serve Jesus through worship leading, church planting, ordained ministry and youth work around the world. We want to do all we can to continue to raise up leaders in both church and society who will serve the church for years to come.

Offering At one of our main meetings we take an offering. Please don’t feel under any obligation to give: only give if you’d like to. Day Four: Evening Meeting (Map Ref: E3)

Soul Action Soul Action is a partnership between Soul Survivor and Tearfund that’s all about how we connect with God’s heart for justice, and how we can help people around the world who are living in poverty.

T

his year we’re celebrating the fact that we are Free 2 Play and raising money for people who have had their freedom taken away from them. Around 27 million people live as slaves today and we want to do all we can to stop that – primarily by helping families break free from the cycles of poverty that lead to them selling their children into slavery.

Wristbands

A

t Soul Survivor 2011 we sold over 7,000 Freedom Bands which had been made by 32 young people connected to a charity called CHO in Cambodia. With the money they earned from making the bands these young people were able to continue their education, meaning they can have a bright future rather than be put at risk of trafficking. Everyone who bought a wristband played a part in helping those young people – get your wristband from the Soul Action stand this summer and let’s see how many more people we can help together!

YOUTH LEADERS! Come to the Soul Action stand to pick up your Free 2 Play resource to use with your youth group – it’s FREE!

Pick up a card at the Soul Action stand that will be stamped each time you do a challenge; complete all four actions and take your fully-stamped card to the Soul Action Café to claim a free hot chocolate or coffee! Challenge 1: Buy a Soul Action wristband for £1 Challenge 2: Pledge to take the Free 2 Play off-site challenge, raising money by doing the things you love, to help others who are trapped in slavery Challenge 3: Collect a handful of rice and beans from the Soul Action stand and eat that (and only that!) as your evening meal Challenge 4: Find out more about another charity by visiting their stand in the ToolShed.

B

ut let’s be honest – sometimes we could do with a hand in understanding some of the confusing bits and applying it to our lives today. So we’ve worked with lots of friends over the last year to put together a brand new Soul Survivor Youth Bible packed full of articles and insights. We’ve included info on topics like sex and relationships, sacrifice, alcohol and self image; and we’ve also tried to look at the big themes of the Bible such as how to find Jesus in the whole of the Bible, sacrifice, worship and prayer, to help us learn about what the Bible has to say about how we should live every day. There are different streams on each topic that you can read by yourself or with a group of mates,

plus there are Bible reading plans, helpful facts and accessible stories. We’ve packed over 500 articles in from such a wide range of writers that we don’t even have room here to tell you about it all so head over to the Soul Survivor stand in the ToolShed to check it out for yourself!

ARTICLEs GET IT ACROSS – LOUD & CLEAR!

Get it across – loud & clear! Need a bit of help preparing a talk? Whether you give short talks in a small group setting, or get asked to speak to a whole church or large crowd, Ali Martin has some brilliant advice for you in her new book ‘Get it Across – Loud & Clear’.

T

he purpose of the book is to help anyone who’s interested in communicating God’s word be the best speaker they can be.

Top tips 01 Clarity – Make sure you are actually saying what you want to say! It might be clear in your head, where you have spent weeks pondering the subject, but you need to make sure it comes across when you deliver it. The best way to check is to test it on someone. Don’t tell them what your main point is, but at the end ask them what you actually communicated. Make sure the weight of your material is where the weight of your point is.

02 Make one point and make it well. Don’t be tempted to cram three sermons into one. Find one focus and gather all your material (Bible verses, illustrations, application) around that one point. It something doesn’t fit, get rid of it – even if it’s a brilliant stand alone thought! 03 Learn to be an engaging communicator. Spend time thinking about your delivery as well as your content because even excellent content will get lost through bad delivery. People need to be interested in what you’re saying and kept engaged for the full length of your talk. 04 When you get asked to speak, you may have a gut feeling about what you should speak on (if you’re given the choice that is). It’s easy to dismiss this and think you should speak about something else but that first thought is often where the power is because that’s the seed the Holy Spirit has planted in you. Learn to listen to what the Holy Spirit is putting in your heart.

ARTICLEs GET IT ACROSS – LOUD & CLEAR!

05 Decide to take feedback well, from anyone, even if they are mean! If we want to grow as communicators we need to be able to be told what our weaknesses are as well as our strengths. We may need help from others to see what annoying habits we have that distract people from hearing God’s truth. Chose to be teachable and accept people’s feedback (you may want to ask a few kind but honest friends particularly to help you in this). Feedback is invaluable to growth.

ARTICLES Soul61

Soul61 Soul61 is our leadership course that aims to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus and equip you to lead for him. It runs November to September every year and is based at Soul Survivor Watford.

I

arrived in Watford not really knowing what to expect from Soul61 and looking back now I realise how much it changed me and taught me. From the very outset I found myself being thrust into the centre of church life and out of my comfort zone; whether that was leading a small group on the Alpha course, praying for someone in the town centre or pretending I knew how to work the church coffee machine. It’s terrifying yet liberating to completely rely on God showing up in instances like these, and Soul61 was the perfect environment for me to be stretched and challenged. Soul61 taught me how Jesus’ model of leadership is countercultural because it starts with humbly serving and loving others. We were encouraged to develop authentic and genuine relationships with other people, as well as pressing into God and pursuing an intimate relationship with him. I’d recommend Soul61 if you want to take a year out from the busyness

of life to run after God’s heart, meet like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ and gain a valuable insight into what church leadership is really like. It’s enriched my life in so many ways and I’ve made lifelong friendships as a result. As I’ve continued to step into leadership since, I feel equipped and confident in the calling God has for my life. I know that the key is sticking close to Jesus; listening to his still small voice and enjoying his presence. I’m so excited about the future God has for me, and I can’t wait to play my part in rebuilding the ancient ruins and renewing the ruined cities (Isaiah 61:4). James was on our leadership course in 2010 and is now studying at the University of Manchester.

ARTICLES Bible Reading notes

Bible Reading Notes

We’re sure that over the next few days, you’ll have an awesome time here at Soul Survivor. We’re really excited that you’re here and I’m sure you can’t wait to get going with all that this week has to offer.

”B

ut amongst all the excitement and busyness, we’d love to encourage you to set aside a bit of time each day to spend time on your own with God, reading his word and telling him what’s happening with you. Here are six wedges of Bible action for you to get stuck into when you’re staying with us. We’ve made it nice and straight forward this year as what you’ll read on these pages is what we’ll be talking about in the main meetings. So, find the start of Acts in your Bible and let’s go.

Day 1 The prologue Because this is the start of a new Bible book, it’s easy to forget what has happened in the story before this. Read Luke’s ‘story so far’ in Acts 1:1–5. Now read Acts 1:6–11. Look out for what Jesus says about the Holy Spirit. Like any good drama writer, Luke gives us a teaser of things to come. In verse 5, Jesus talks about being baptised with the Holy Spirit, and in verse 8, Jesus again promises to send the Holy Spirit. But why? What’s so important about the Spirit? Well, this is the next step in God’s plan: Jesus is promised in the Old Testament, is born, is baptised, teaches, performs miracles, is arrested, tried and executed. But he comes alive again and here we see him going back to heaven, so that the Spirit might come. And it’s the power of the Spirit which is going to make such a difference to Jesus’ followers.

What does Jesus say in verse 8 about us being his witnesses? Swap the names of the places in that verse with ones near you. How does that make you feel? What do you know about the Spirit? What power do you think we receive? Weeks B&C Soul survivor 79

SS12_WEEK_BC.indd 79

19/07/2012 12:14


Day 2 The pause A new day! What has God said to you so far? Are you ready to go for it? Or do you need to wait? Spend a minute praying about yesterday and what God is doing in your life. Read Acts 1:12–26 and figure out what Jesus’ followers were doing while they waited for Jesus’ promise to happen. So, what did they decide? Well, they didn’t career off, trying to do everything under their own steam. First they prayed together. They’ve been through a lot – a massive rollercoaster ride – but they’re still talking to God about it all. The other thing they did was to choose another apostle. But why? They could have gone on with one fewer member, Take That managed perfectly well, after all. Well, they were mindful of their past: 12 is a significant number in God’s story – 12 sons of Jacob, 12 tribes of Israel. If they were going to spread the message of Jesus, their number was incomplete.

Do you rush into things, or do you pray about them first? Is God asking you to wait? Are you talking to him about it? How much do you know of God’s story? What is your part in God’s story?

Day 3 The power When you’ve been waiting for something for a while, does it always meet your expectations when it arrives? Read Acts 2:1–13 and draw yourself a little picture of what you think the coming of the Spirit looked like. Put yourself in the place of the apostles. What would you have thought when the Holy Spirit arrived? How would you have felt? Jesus had already told his followers about the Spirit (John 14:15–31 and 16:5–15), but nothing could have prepared them for what happened! It transformed them! If you’ve encountered the Spirit already, then it was unlikely to have been like this. Later in Acts, the Spirit works in different ways, not always in this dramatic way. The key thing to remember is that the Spirit always works in the best way in a situation – drama was key to empowering everyone in the locked room, but elsewhere, it’s a quiet voice that’s needed.

What effect does this dramatic experience of the Spirit have on the apostles? What other ways have you seen the Spirit at work (both in your life and others)? What work is the Spirit doing in your life?

Day 4 The prophecy What do you know about the prophet Joel? Find his book in the Old Testament and find out something about his message. Read Acts 2:14–21. Why do you think Peter quotes Joel here? How does it explain what is happening? The crowds are confused, some think this is all the result of drink. But Peter doesn’t waste time defending himself and the other followers. He relies on the passage of Joel that he quotes to tell people what’s going on. We may never have read any of Joel before, but Peter’s audience would know all about it. In the Old Testament, God sent the Holy Spirit to just one or two people at a time, for a specific purpose. But Joel tells of a time when the Spirit would be there for everyone. And here Peter is saying that time is now. God sends his Spirit to everyone, to work in different ways as he sees the need.

How have you encountered the Holy Spirit at Soul Survivor? What do you think about verse 21? What does it mean for you?

Day 5

Day 6

The plan

The people

Today, what do you know about King David? You can read his story in 1 and 2 Samuel.

What has God said to you at Soul Survivor?

Read Acts 2:22–42. What’s the main thing that Peter’s talking about? The resurrection. That’s what Peter’s talking about. And he’s talking about it in the context of God’s great plan. David was a great king of Israel, but he’s dead and gone. Jesus, however, is THE King of Israel and he’s NOT dead. As Paul says later on in 1 Corinthians (check out 15:16–19), Jesus’ resurrection is the important thing. If Jesus were dead, then our faith would mean nothing. And Peter wants his audience to know the same thing. Jesus is the Lord that David is talking about and Jesus is alive.

How did the people react to what Peter said? How do you react? What does the cross mean to you? And the resurrection? If you need to talk, find someone who you trust and chat it through.

Read Acts 2:43–47 and think how the things the believers did might change your life. Here’s the difference the Spirit makes. Before he came, the apostles were in a locked room praying. After Pentecost, the locks were gone and Jesus’ followers were out in the open – sharing, looking after each other and, most importantly, telling everyone about Jesus. And they were attractive to other people. I don’t mean their looks and they way they dressed, but the way they lived, loved each other and, most of all, the message they preached.

What thing surprises you most about the way the early church lived? If someone looked at the way you live your life, would they find it attractive? What difference has the Holy Spirit made to you while you’ve been at Soul Survivor? So, what’s going to change? Weeks B&C Soul survivor 81

ARTICLES PRAYER MINISTRY

Prayer ministry 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 try to let God lead what’s going on by his Spirit. As part of this the leaders of the meeting will make time for us to wait on God’s Spirit and pray for particular groups of people they believe God wants to ‘minister’ to. This is a great chance for God to work in our lives and it’s brilliant to be as open to him as possible.

D

on’t worry if you’ve never had prayer offered in this way, or if you’re not sure how to pray. Mike P and the team will talk you through what’s going on as it happens (to the best of their knowledge!). We also have an experienced ‘Enabling Team’ 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 well! While you’re with us please stick to the advice given.

So, what happens?

M

inistry 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.

A guide to praying for others…

G

od 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 confusion for others around you. Thanks. Mouth: Don’t be afraid

to ask 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).

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

ARTICLES PRAYER MINISTRY

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 fine, 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, we don’t want to get in the way of that and we want to make sure people leave a time of ministry feeling loved and valued.

Space: It’s brilliant to have more than one person praying for someone at a time so feel free to go over and join someone who’s praying already. That said, it’s can be distracting if a large group gather around someone when the ministry is of a sensitive nature so please ensure people have enough personal space. And finally…

N

ot everyone is familiar with ministry and prayer times and some people feel a bit concerned or nervous 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, 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. 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. You can also refer people 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. 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 can’t 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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Comms OPEN 24 hours a day

T Things you should know

he Comms team have all the qualities you would want in an emergency. Cool under pressure, ready whenever you need them and the ability to talk baffling language into a radio. They help keep us safe onsite by co-ordinating all the practical things that need doing. Give them a ring if there’s an emergency on 0303 333 1335.

In an emergency, don’t panic.

DON’t CALL 999 YOURSELF

This can cause confusion and delay help getting through:

Go to Comms Call Comms on 0303 333 1335 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.

GENERAL INFORMATION 0303 333 1333 This is the Soul Survivor office number which you can ring from 9am till 5.30pm with any enquiries or just pop along to the Info Office on site and ask your question face to face.

Emergencies back home

M

ake 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 in the Soulympic Café) and let your family know the Soul Survivor General Information number in case someone back home needs to contact you (Please only use this in genuine emergencies, this isn’t the right number for your mum to call if she wants to check you remembered your underpants).

Information points

C

heck out the Info points around site for all the latest news and programme changes. You’ll find them: outside Info, in the ToolShed, and outside the ToolShed/by the food court.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Stewards

S

oul Survivor is powered by hi-vis jackets, or more specifically, the people inside the hi-vis jackets. These people are known as stewards and do more important jobs onsite than can be written in this programme. Should you happen to spot one around site, please listen to what they tell you, maybe have a chat with them but most importantly smile and thank them for keeping an eye out for us all.

Communion

W

e love to end the week together by sharing in Communion. To do this we start the main meeting at 10am (instead of the usual 11am start). There is non-alcoholic wine available as well as wheat/gluten free bread for those that need it (look out for directions from whoever is leading the meeting so you know where to go!)

Special needs

W

e 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. Kids groups have helpers available to work one-on-one with any children with special needs. To find out more about what’s on offer just pop into Info early in the week.

Facilities for hearing impaired

T

he main meeting venue has 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.

Wristbands

Y

our wristband is like Wilson from Castaway. You and your Wilson need to be together at all times to make sure you can get into all the lovely venues around site. In the very sad event of you losing your Wilson you don’t need to shout and cry as Tom Hanks did. You need to bring £40 to Info in order to buy a new one. If you manage to break it, bring the pieces along to Info and we’ll do you a deal (i.e. swap the torn pieces for a brand new Wilson once you’ve handed over £1). Remember, without a wristband we can’t let you into any venues onsite. If somehow you’ve ended up wearing a wristband that doesn’t have your name on it, please head straight to Info to get that fixed. Substitutions are free and it’s really important you are wearing the right wristband as we use it to identify you in an emergency!

Village Hosts

A

village host is like an encyclopaedia of everything Soul Survivor. They possess the wisdom of Stephen Fry and the welcoming smile of Ant & Dec. They exist to make you feel at home whilst you’re with us at Soul Survivor and if you have any questions about your stay they will happily help. They will regale you with tales of years gone by and entertain you with stories of the time someone dropped their toothbrush down the toilet as well as popping up at regular intervals during your stay, offering cups of hot chocolate and a friendly ear. So return their welcoming smiles and enjoy the beginning of a wonderful friendship. Weeks B&C Soul survivor 85

IMPORTANT INFORMATION THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

The Post

W

e know that the world is an incredibly fast moving place. You can call an aunty in Argentina in ten seconds or tweet a picture of your face to America in an instant, but there is still something nice about receiving a card, letter or parcel. We have teamed up with the lovely people of the showground to allow you to receive and send post whilst onsite. Any post received will be kept in the Info Office until you come and claim it, so check regularly if you’re expecting something. This is the information you’ll need to give, should someone want to send something to you:

SEND POST TO: Your name & your delegate reference number (starting B2K12/C2K12…) Information c/o Soul Survivor Bath and West Showground Shepton Mallet Somerset BA4 6QN

Lost Property

I

t’s amazing what stuff gets handed in to lost property. In the last few years we’ve had everything from football boots to umbrellas, underwear to Santa hats. Whatever you lose onsite and wherever you lose it, we’ll try our best to help you find it. Pop into comms or info and we’ll help you have a trawl through what’s been handed in. At the end of the event we will take valuable items (cameras, wallets, phones, jewellery) that haven’t been collected back to our office in Watford so give us a call there (0303 333 1333) if you don’t realise something is missing until you get home. Please note that our office will be shut after our events for the first few weeks in September (whilst we adjust to life outside a field) but we will try and get you reunited with your lost property ASAP after that. Less valuable items need to be claimed by the morning of the last day or they will be taken to a local charity shop, so have a good check you are leaving with everything you came with before you head home!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Food vans

W

e all know that one of the most important parts of your day is deciding what you are going to eat. Some of you will be Michelin starred Heston Blumenthal types and will happily whip up grilled monkfish garnished with new potatoes and an elderberry coulis. Others of you will be sat in your tent in tears surrounded by the remnants of a failed attempt at boiled pasta. Well, cry no more! We have summoned catering vans from all ends of the country to come and serve you your heart’s desire. We’ve got a wide range of food from burgers to crepes, thai curry to fish and chips. Head on down and tuck in.

Cafés

I

n need of a caffeine fix or a slab of cake to tide you over until dinner time? Well we have the cafés that will happily sort you out. Take your pick from Café Uno, Dreggs Soul Action Café, Soulympic Café or the Soul Survivor Café in the ToolShed.

Supplies

R

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

Local Shops & Directions

I

n Shepton Mallet you’ll find a big Tesco, Argos and Aldi. To reach them just turn left out of the main or Blue gate, follow the signs to Shepton Mallet town centre and pick up the supermarket signs. But please be sensible! Don’t walk along the A371 as it’s the main lorry route across Somerset and the lorries go very fast. We really don’t want anyone to get hurt so please stay safe.

Y

our mum was telling you all last week that you needed to bring the bag by the stairs. You said yes, and now you’ve arrived you remembered you completely forgot it! Well, help is at hand. There is an onsite shop that will happily supply fresh bread, milk, ice cream and other such essentials.

(Map Ref: F5)

GAS STATION

D

on’t worry guys; we haven’t gone all American on you! Unlike our transatlantic cousins we know the difference between petrol and gas. Therefore our gas station supplies you with gas!

THE GAS SHOP IS OPEN: Day One: 5pm –6pm Days Two to Five: 8.30am – 9.30am, 12.30pm – 2pm and 5pm – 6pm

Freezer Packs

PLEASE NOTE

Soul Survivor doesn’t directly contract the catering vans onsite so we don’t control the prices of them.

ONSITE SHOP

Y

ou can exchange (for free) or buy (for £2) frozen ice packs for your cold storage between 8.30-9.00am and 5.00-5.30pm at site stores.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION Health and safety

Health and Safety Fire Regulations

W

e know you love your friends and your youth group and want to camp as close as possible to them, but according to our fire safety inspectors John and Kelvin who know a lot about fire, you need to leave at least 3 metres between tents. If you have trouble working out measurements, ask your village host who will be happy to advise you. Also while we’re talking about fire, don’t forget that BBQ-ing inside a tent is a big no-no so please don’t do it.

Sickness

S

ickness 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

Please note

The use of generators is not permitted.

First Aid

W GROUP LEADERS

Please make sure you’ve completed the risk assessment form in your Group Leader Pack and make sure you follow the cooking with gas advice. Thanks!

e hope you don’t need them but in case of medical issues during Soul Survivor we have a brilliant First Aid team ready and waiting to apply a plaster or bandage your elbow. You’ll find their portacabins in the car park and they are open from 9am – 7pm. Of course sickness doesn’t happen on a schedule so outside of these hours pop along to Comms and they will radio for medical help. 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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ETHICAL ISSUES

Ethical issues We’re doing our bit across site to reduce our impact on the environment.

We’re helping out by Trying to print less and use less paper

Recycle unused food

E

ven with the best will in the world it’s pretty hard to calculate how much food you will use in a week and chances are you will have some left over. Never fear! Pop along to Comms on day 5 with any non-perishable and unopened foods and we will donate it all to a local charity.

Making sure all our hoodies are

ethically sourced and that the people making them are getting as fair a deal as possible Making sure all our tea and coffee (and as much of the other food as we can) is fairly traded Supplying our cafés with biodegradable wooden cutlery Filling the site with more bins than there are hair products in Mike’s bathroom We can’t do all of this alone though. We need you guys to help us keep the site nice and tidy and try to reduce the effect we have on the environment. All around site there are separate bins for glass, plastic, cardboard and cans so please split out your rubbish and make sure it goes in the right bin. Each camping Village has a recycling point with extra plastic bags for you to take back to your tent to dispose of your rubbish.

Re-use where possible

R

eusable plates and cutlery are a God-send. After you’ve finished your dinner give it a quick wipe on your sleeve, back in your bag and you’re ready for breakfast. Sorted.

Don’t waste water

I

n order for us to save as much water as possible it would be great for you to take quick showers and make sure all the taps are turned off after use. Or, if you want to save more water and stink out the bus on the way home, don’t bother showering.

Take care of your turf

A

fter we’ve all left and gone home, the little creatures and insects that we’ve rehomed for a week will return and we’d love to give them a nice place to come back to. Please take any rubbish away with you and keep your patch neat and tidy.

Site Rules There are a few site rules that we have in place. They are here for everyone’s safety and to ensure the enjoyment of the event. Abiding by these rules will help us all live as one big happy family for the next five days. Lovely! Youth Leaders are responsible for their under 18s at all times. 01

02

Strictly no alcohol on site.

04 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. 04 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. 05 We really want to respect people’s privacy especially during times of ministry, therefore please don’t film or take any photos during this time. 06 Pets are not allowed on site except Guide dogs (please go to the Information Office on arrival if you have a Guide dog).

No mixed tent/caravan/accommodation on site i.e. no boys and girls sleeping in the same space unless married. 07

08 Ball games are to be finished by 10pm. This will hopefully avoid anyone being woken up in the early hours with a football in their tent.

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). 09

10 There is no access into any area that has been marked out of bounds by red and white tape. 11 Tents or caravans can only be moved to another village by registering with Info or helpdesk. This is essential so we can contact you in the event of an emergency and to maintain site security.

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 – thousands of people would be a nightmare for hazard perception! 12

No fly posting… help us respect the property on the showground. 13

14 If you aren’t a team member on duty, please don’t wear a fluorescent jacket. You can wear it as much as you want when you get home, but please help us avoid any confusion by not wearing it during your time with us. 15 Smoking is not permitted inside buildings, marquees or individual tents. 16 Event wristbands must be worn at all times - they are the only way to get into venues. There is a charge to replace lost bands.

17 The use of generators is prohibited. Please talk to Comms if you have a medical or other critical need for a power supply. There will be a charge for provision of an electrical hook up. 18 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. 19 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 or damage to people or personal property. 20 The Bath and West showground has some very pretty areas so please be respectful of your surroundings and make sure you don’t walk/run/skateboard/dance/skip etc where you’re not allowed to. (Areas are clearly marked and should be fairly obvious too!) 21 All delegates need to be back on their Villages by 12am every night, and the campsite must be quiet by 1am. We will be dropping pins from time to time to check this. 22 Please do not go swimming in the lake. 23 Chinese Lanterns are not permitted at Soul Survivor events.
