welcome |

Welcome to Soul Survivor! Hello little ones, It’s really great to be with you here at Soul Survivor. Whether this is your first time with us or you’re a seasoned regular, we’re chuffed to have you with us. All year we’ve been planning to try and make this the best Soul Survivor yet. We’ve gathered some brilliant speakers to help lead our seminars, some fantastic bands and acts to entertain you after hours, and we’ve created some great venues for you and your mates to enjoy. In our main meetings we will be spending loads of time worshiping, hearing from God’s word and waiting on the Holy Spirit to see what he wants to do among us. Just one touch from Jesus changes us so in all we do this week we want to pursue his presence. Let’s stay open to God and want he wants to do in our lives, let’s be expectant that he will meet with us, and let’s pray that we will leave here more in love with him and better equipped to serve him throughout the year. With love, Mike

| ABOUT US

who we are and what meetings we do Everyone loves a good poem, so in an attempt to compete with the wordsmiths of ye olden days, we’ve penned the Soul Survivor story in poetic form. Enjoy! There was a young man of Greek descent, With whom chaos would follow wherever he went. An accountant by day, a youth worker by night, Adorned with an afro of great width and great height.

Intro Info

An accountant’s no good if he can’t do the maths, So with that revelation his employment changed paths. You see, deep in his brain an idea was brewing, Where to focus his time and his life and his doing. The idea was planted, not conjured or thought, To provide an experience that could never be bought. The idea was so simple and plain yet so real To gather people together, meet Jesus and feel the life-changing, magnificent wonder of love, A love like no other, a love from above. Since 93, we’ve been getting together, Whatever the temperature, good or bad weather. With one main directive and one proper purpose, To go deeper with Jesus, not just scratching the surface. And that is our prayer as you join us this year, Seek his face, be persistent, draw close, persevere. Whatever you do, get stuck in, have some fun, There’s a load of activities and stuff to be done. But in all that we do, have a think, let’s take notice And keep Jesus our central and unmoving focus.

ABOUT US |

Contrary to popular belief the ‘hokey cokey’ isn’t really what it’s all about. We want to keep Jesus at the centre of everything we do. We love worshiping him, learning more about him and allowing him to shape our lives. So that’s what we’ll be doing loads of this week. You in? A few things you might like to know about us As well as loving Jesus, we love you! We love meeting up with you all every summer, hanging out and getting to know you a bit more. As some of you will know, we’re a pretty casual bunch. We like to have a laugh and a joke and not take ourselves too seriously. But we take God very seriously and whilst enjoying our time together we try and honour him in everything we do. Who’s that then? Mike P (the accountant of Greek descent) is one of the directors of Soul Survivor. He has been around since the very beginning (of Soul Survivor, not time, although sometimes we wonder) and despite pushing 70 he’s back again as your host this week. Mike is joined by his mate (and Associate Director of Soul Survivor) Andy Croft, and another couple of mates that we’d love to introduce you to. At week B they’ll be joined by Busy Thomas who works for Soul Survivor and at week C they’ll have former Soul61 comms student, Lahna Pottle, hosting the meetings with them.

the days It’s what day again? When you’re not at school and the holidays are in full swing, you never really remember what day it is. Mondays are as exciting as Saturdays and each day just merges into another. To try and combat this we’ve made things incredibly simple! The days are numbered one to five:

Week B

Tuesday = Day 1 Wednesday = Day 2 Thursday = Day 3 Friday = Day 4 Saturday = Day 5

Week C

Sunday = Day 1 Monday = Day 2 Tuesday = Day 3 Wednesday = Day 4 Thursday = Day 5

| the main meetings

THE main meetings Every day we get together in the morning and evening for our main meetings. The reason we do this is that we love taking time out of the day to focus on God, hear from his word and worship him. For those of you not familiar with the way we do things we’ve explained a little bit more below. Intro Info

Worship

Our whole lives can be lived as an offering of worship to God. But one of the ways the Bible talks about worship, especially when a group is gathered, is to sing to God – so that’s what we do when we get together! It’s more than singing songs though – these times are an opportunity to draw close to God, to tell him we love him, and to focus on who he is and all that he has done for us. It’s not about painting a smile on our faces and singing happy songs, it’s a time to be honest with God – whether life feels great or painful knowing that whatever is going on in our lives God is worthy of our worship. As we see from so many encounters with God in the Bible, just one touch from him changes everything. That’s what we’re aiming to do in worship: touch God’s heart with our praise and allow him to touch ours with his love.

TIMES: DAY 1 7pm, DAYS 2 - 4 11am & 7pm, day 5 10am & 7pm (Located in the big top venue) ★ 10


the main meetings |

Ministry

God didn’t leave us to try and work out his will on our own, he gave us the Bible so that we could get to know more about who he is, and his plans for us and for the world. Sometimes it can seem daunting to look at a book so big that was written so long ago, but the Bible is absolutely packed full of wisdom for us. So during our meetings we’ll be exploring what the Bible has to say on a number of topics and seeing how we can apply its truths to our lives. We’d really encourage you to keep reading the Bible for yourself when you get home too as it will help you stay connected to God and growing in your relationship with him. If you’re not sure where to start you could pick up a Soul Survivor Youth Bible in the ToolShed which has lots of articles and extra information to help you access God’s word. If you’re up for a challenge we’ll also be starting to read through the whole Bible in one year starting on 1st September. You can get your hands on the ‘Soul Survivor Bible in One Year’ in the ToolShed and you can check out http://thebibleinoneyear.wordpress.com for daily articles and videos to help you explore the day’s reading too.

We don’t plan these times as we want to wait and see what God wants to do, but even if you’ve never been in a ministry time before, there’s nothing to worry about. Mike, Andy and anyone leading time of ministry will talk you through what’s happening (as far as they know!) and we won’t hype anything up. All we want to do is say ‘yes’ to God and ask him to fill us so that we can become more like him. This is a great opportunity to be prayed for or to pray with others, and we have an experienced Enabling Team who are on hand to answer any questions you have.

GodTV

Our mates at GodTV are back for 2013. They’ll be broadcasting LIVE from the Big Top on Day 3 and Day 4 of Week B so make sure you text your mum to say you’re going to be on the telly! In the Big Top you’ll see their cameras on either side of the stage but don’t worry – they only film the worship and talks - no one will be filmed during ministry. We’ll keep you posted when the new Soul Survivor series will start on GODTV but in the meantime you can take a trip down memory lane with some old Soul Survivor episodes from as far back as 2007 that are available at www.god.tv./soulsurvivor GodTV is on Sky channel 580, Virgin Media channel 279 or available online at www.god.tv/live/uk

Intro Info

Teaching

It’s amazing to be able to read God’s word and look together at what it means for us today, but we also want to be empowered and equipped to live out the things we’ve heard about! We make lots of space in our meetings to wait on the Holy Spirit as he is the one who empowers us.

11.30 pm The venues are closed so you can get a good night’s sleep and wake up ready to do it all over again tomorrow! SOUL SURVIVOR WEEKS B&C

★ Keep your phone on you at all times if possible. ★ Help us keep Soul Survivor a safe place to hang out by not going off with someone you don’t know on your own.

Testimonies We love the fact that God is going to do so much in so many of you this week. What we also love is when you tell us about it. If God has done something in your life, big or small, ground-breaking or seemingly minor please let us know!

VEnUES

Going to the cinema requires you to auction off possessions, double up on paper rounds or wash everyone’s car in the street just to afford the ticket. Well for one week only you can enjoy some awesome films for absolutely nothing! Head down to Celluloid every evening and catch one of these crackers:

Pitch Perfect 12A (112mins)

Pitch Perfect is likely to be the most fun film you’ll ever see. Ever. The plot sounds like your average high-school flick (mis-fit Beca joins an all-girl singing group as they fight their way through regional singing comps) BUT the one-liners and gags along the way laugh in the face of average. With some awesome riffoffs and mash-ups that we suspect made the Glee cast sob with jealousy, this is a film to see again and again. (And possibly again).

The true story of an idyllic family holiday ripped apart by the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004. As Thailand struggles to deal with the aftermath of such a huge disaster, the family fight through the devastation in the hopes of being reunited with one another. The film is compelling, moving and well- worth seeing on the big screen.

Loved the Notebook? (And let’s face it: who didn’t?!) Check out this romantic tale from the same author that follows the story of Katie as she tries to leave behind her past and start afresh in a new town. When she begins to think about opening her heart again she finds her dark secrets catching up with her and has to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice in this romantic thriller.

Charlie thinks he’s a wallflower, socially awkward and sitting unnoticed on the side-lines of life, whilst dealing with a devastating loss. Then he meets Samantha and Patrick who pick him out of the crowd and show him what fun really looks like. This is an absolutely unforgettable story of friendship, love, family, facing your past and living life to the full. Watch it and love it.

Step up 4: miami heat 12A (99mins)

Remember the Titans pg (113mins)

Emily arrives in Miami with aspirations to become a professional dancer. Then she meets Sean, the leader of a flash mob dance crew whose stunts are becoming notorious. When Sean’s neighbourhood is threatened by Emily’s father’s development plans, the dancers question: can you ever change things? And what are the consequences of turning performance art into protest art?

Set in 1970’s America this 2002 classic tells the story of Herman Boone, an African-American school football coach tasked with bringing together both white and black students to play in the same college team. Against the backdrop of race struggles in America can Boone unify his team to fight for something more important than sport?

Jack the Giant Slayer 12A (114mins)

An evil queen seizes control of an enchanted kingdom and banishes Snow White to the woods. Meeting with seven unusual but resourceful rebels, Snow White won’t lose her kingdom without a fight. This is a fresh take on an old fairy tale with heart and humour and even some Bollywood dancing. Can’t say fairer than that. Jack obviously didn’t read his fairy tales when he was a boy. If he did he would have learned that you should never sell your horse for magic beans or climb up a giant beanstalk. It’s just asking for trouble. But thankfully he didn’t which means we get to watch his adventures as he unwittingly opens a gateway for some angry giants who are ready to do battle to take back their kingdom. With a top notch cast and brilliant effects, you know you’re going to be in for a whole heap of fun!

Total Recall 12A (118mins)

Beasts of the Southern Wild 12A (93mins)

Whatever you think you remember, it’s not real. Woah there. That’s some seriously head-messing stuff. But that’s what awaits Douglas when he steps into the world of Rekall . This remake of the 1990s classic is big on pulse-pounding thrills so buckle up and enjoy the ride!

Hushpuppy, a six-year old girl, is forced to survive on her own when her town is flooded after an environmental disaster. As she sets out on a journey to find her mother, she finds she must face the elements and prehistoric beasts who have been awoken from their frozen graves. Our tiny hero packs a big punch in this poetic and poignant tale that was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.

VEnUES

The ToolShed is so massive that you may easily get lost in its aisles, avenues and cul-de-sacs. It is so big that just like the Great Wall of China, The Great Barrier Reef and the Pyramids you can see it from space (maybe). Packed inside these four walls you’ll find a bunch of people who want to resource and equip you in your walk with Jesus. There are helpful resources to take home, organisations you can chat to and information to browse. Here’s a couple of things we’d like you to know about the ToolShed, that we’re pretty serious about:

Free Wifi available!

1

All the stands and organisations are here to equip you in your relationship 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. Whilst we vet everyone who exhibits at Soul Survivor that doesn’t mean we will always agree 100% on theological angles so please don’t see their presence here as our endorsement or agreement with them in every matter.

2

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.

3

From time to time Mike and Andy 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.

TIMES: Day 1, 9:15 - 11:30 PM, Days 2 - 5, 1 - 5:30 PM and 9:15 - 11:30 PM ★ 30

Soul SURVIVOR café

wifi

One of the many delights of the ToolShed is the Soul Survivor Café. Packed to the rafters with thick slabs of cake, muffins, tray bakes and other cracking snacks, it is the ideal spot to pull up a chair and watch the world go by. This is also the place to head if you want more information about Soul Survivor. Drop by and have a chat with one of the team or grab some flyers to take home with you. We’d love to see you!

The world of technology moves faster than a cheetah on a pair of jet powered roller-skates and if you don’t keep up you fall behind like a rhino in a pair of stilettos. In a bid to keep up with the times we have installed Wi-Fi in a selection of venues across the site. The places where you can log on are: • Grounds (also fitted with a bunch of computers for you to keep up with the WOSS (world outside Soul Survivor) • Soul Action Café • Food Court

While we try our best to make sure the Wi-Fi works all the time, technology can always trip you up so please be patient if there are any issues. We’ll do our best to solve any problems as soon as possible. The Wi-Fi is installed with a blocker to stop anyone accessing anything they shouldn’t be – but don’t worry, you can still watch the video of the baby panda sneezing.

XLP café Our good mates XLP have come to join us in the ToolShed this year – whoop! Head upstairs, mobile ph grab a slice of cake and a cuppa chargin one and check out their retro film g! footage or have a go on their cool graffiti chalkboard. For more information about XLP chat to the café team or visit their stand.

Can you go skating at Wembley? No. Can you play basketball in the Nou Camp? No. By a simple use of logic and reasoning we’ve proved that the Soul Survivor sports venue ranks alongside the greatest sporting venues in the world. You can skate, shoot hoops, perfect your nutmegs and take frisbee to the extreme all in one venue. Go on, get involved!

The SouL SUrvivor five-aside footie tournament (Starts Day Two – Afternoon)

There is no ‘I’ in team but there is one in ‘winners’ and that’s the only thing that matters. Joking! Although winning is nice, getting stuck in, getting a little bit messy and making new friends is much better so grab four mates and register your team at the sports venue.

The Legendary Panna-ramic tournament (Starts Day Two – Afternoon)

What do you call a cage with 16 sides? Awesome! That’s what. Add a football into the mix and you have the legendary Panna-cage football tournament. Sign up with a mate and embark on a two-man journey to beat all the competition and be crowned ‘Champions of the Football Cage 2013’.

TIMES: 1 - 6 pm and 9:30 PM - 11:00 PM (Located in the sports venue and on the sports field) ★ 32

Ultimate Frisbee (Starts Day Two – Afternoon)

Putting ‘ultimate’ in front of anything makes it sound amazing as ultimate by definition means best and unbeatable. Therefore by signing up for our ultimate frisbee competition you are signing up for the best frisbee competition in the entire world. Fact!

Basketball tournament

In 1891 a Canadian doctor gathered together a couple of peach baskets, a football and a sense of imagination and created the game we know and love as basketball. How times have changed. We have real hoops and proper basketballs, so grab your mates, put your kicks and sweatbands on and get set for the tip-off!

The Fun Run (Day Four – 5:30pm)

Sports Café Nestled in the corner of the sports venue is the Sports Café – your one-stop shop for a nice, refreshing drink or a tasty snack to re-energise you for your next adventure in the sporting arena.

SOUL SURVIVOR WEEKS B&C

If Mo Farah was here we’re pretty sure he would get involved with our Soul Action Fun Run. That man just loves running! But it’s not just Olympic champion runners that can take part; everyone is welcome! This sponsored run will raise money for Soul Action projects that work to keep people from being sold into slavery so grab a form from the Soul Action stand in the ToolShed and get your mates to sponsor you. Then all you need to do is run/walk/rhumba your way around the course and it’ll be three cheers for you!

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 in each session. 35

SEMINARS

DISASTER! You’ve made a list of seminars you want to go to but some of them are on at the same time. What are you going to do? We thought problems like this might crop up so we’ve made every single seminar available for you to either purchase from the ToolShed or buy from our online shop when you get home! On the following pages you’ll see a plan with all the seminars for the week and next to every seminar you’ll find a unique number. Simply quote that number at the Soul Survivor stand in the ToolShed or enter it online when you get home and in exchange of a few quid you’ll have your very own copy of the seminar!

seminars

Every day we run teaching sessions called seminars. They’re a bit like the talks in the main meeting but they last about 45 minutes with time for Q&A and cover a whole range of topics.

There are three seminar slots every day, one at 9:30am, one at 2:30pm and one at 4pm. We’ve tried our best to put them into three simple categories for you to find the seminar that’s right for you. Get Equipped A practical seminar stream geared towards equipping, empowering and encouraging. Some of the subjects we’ll be covering include worship leading, speaking and prophecy.

SOUL SURVIVOR WEEKS B&C

Go Further An opportunity to go beyond the surface and look at areas of prayer, ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit and healing.

Go Deeper A stream of seminars designed to challenge us to live out our faith in the world around us. Subjects covered include evangelism, justice and apologetics.

Day Planner: Day two Boundless

9.30 am What about doubt? 

Yanah Nightingale

Even some of Jesus’ closest friends had doubts and questions so does that means it’s okay to have questions? What do we do with the doubts we have, even after we know Jesus? By looking at Thomas’s story, we find out how Jesus responds to our questions, and how to grow in our faith when we don’t have all the answers. SEMINAR A - (34001)

DAY PLANNER

What is faith? 

Clement Wong

Faith is one of the most important elements of being a Christian. But how is our faith affected when we don’t hear from God or feel that he is particularly close? Join Clement as he looks at these dilemmas and tries to answer the question: what is faith?

Danielle Strickland

Ever get the feeling that your life is half full or that something is missing? What if there was a way to live your life to the point of overflowing - to be immersed in purpose and find fullness as a way of living? Come and explore the full life God has planned for us all. BLUEPRINT - (34005)

Songs of justice 

David Westlake

The songs we sing and prayers we pray at Soul Survivor have amazing words and declare our praise to God. But what if our songs were ‘more than a song?’ and our prayers were more than words? We’ll be looking at the connection between worship and justice, and talking about the kind of disciples God wants us to be. SOUL ACTION CAFÉ - (34006)

CELLULOID (UPSTAIRS) - (34002)

Everyone has to do something  Gary Smith

Praying for people so that stuff happens

Soul Man meets Soul Sista – Sex and relationships

Gavin Calver

Mike Pilavachi, Ali Martin and Andy Croft

When Jesus came to start the greatest revolution ever he didn’t form a board of elders but a youth group. The disciples were aged 15 to 22 and Jesus used them in amazing ways to change the world. How can we as young people also be used and what lessons and examples are there from Jesus for us to follow today?

Sex is sometimes a bit embarrassing to talk about but for today we’ll leave our blushes at the door and have an open and honest chat about some of the issues surrounding sex and relationships. There will be time for you to put your questions to the team via text so don’t be shy!

CELLULOID (DOWNSTAIRS) - (34010)

Equal! Why women in leadership is so important Bishop Graham Cray

Women being in positions of leadership in the church matters: it takes us back to God’s original design, overturns injustice, prevents unnecessary offence, gives a taste of God’s promised future and takes hold of a unique opportunity today.

BIG TOP - (34014)

The ‘C’ word

Eddie Lyle and Open Doors

What would you do if going to church meant risking your freedom or even your life? Some followers of Jesus are being forced to build a secret church, risking their lives in the process. Come and hear stories about following Jesus in its rawest form. SEMINAR B - (34015)

CELLULOID (UPSTAIRS) - (34011)

4.00 pm

How to lead a revolution

Help – I fall asleep when I pray!

Has God given you a longing to see things change in this world? Well, you can! This seminar will give a practical look at leadership through the eyes of three world changers and how their relationship with God and love for people changed everything.

Prayer is one of those things we all know we should do but none of us are very good at it. Come and hear some of the ins and outs of how to build a healthy, sustainable prayer life that brings us closer to God, enables us to hear from him and see prayers answered.

| day planner: week B, day four

Soul Man meets Soul Sista – Porn is everywhere

Mike Pilavachi, Andy Croft and Ali Martin Does it sometimes seem as though every show you watch, book you read and song you listen to is all about sex? How do you say ‘no’ when your mates show you porn on their phones? In one way or another porn has become part of our everyday reality and yet it can destroy relationships and damage our view of ourselves and of the opposite sex. So let’s get together for an honest conversation about how we honour God and look after ourselves, and each other, in a porn-obsessed world.

4.00 pm Thinking faith

Andy Croft

Lots of people think you need to throw your brain away to be a Christian. Can thinking and faith go together? How do we handle all those difficult questions about suffering, other religions and science? This seminar is about growing a faith that frees us to engage with difficult questions and difficult people. SEMINAR A - (34058)

When things get more complicated

My heart bleeds Eddie Lyle and Open Doors

Sometimes the issue of sex and relationships can get confusing and complicated. If you have personal (maybe even scary) questions about sex and relationships then this seminar is for you. It’s a safe place where you can think, chat and discuss the issues you’re facing.

Rachel Gardner

If one part suffers, we all suffer. Many in the church are beaten, abused, vilified, arrested, tortured or even murdered simply for their faith. Around the world our family is bleeding. Come and learn how you can support, pray for and help our brothers and sisters around the world. SEMINAR B - (34057)

Creativity in local church worship Beth Croft and Sam Bailey

At its heart our worship must be authentic which means there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach. So how do we make the most of what we’ve got in our local church? How do we encourage passionate worship when our band is made up of a flute, a trombone, and a didgeridoo?! What if we don’t have any musicians at all? Come along as we explore ideas to get creative and grow in our love of God, his people and his worship.

He’s a big fan of playing sports and hasn’t let more than his fair share of broken bones and injuries put him off. But in case you think that makes him sound tough, he’s been known to love a chick flick or two; just don’t tell him we told you.

Graham is Chairman of the Soul Survivor Trust and a bishop in the Church of England (which means he gets to wear a pointy hat). As well as being Mike P’s boss he leads the Fresh Expressions team, which helps churches to plant new congregations to reach people who don’t ordinarily come to church. He’s been an avid follower of popular music for 50 years, back when it was just called ‘music’.

your questions our answers |

your questions our answers Why do people close their eyes and put up their hands in worship?

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

Firstly there is no right or wrong way to worship Jesus. Worship is an opportunity to encounter Jesus and each person responds differently to meeting with him. Many people shut their eyes so they aren’t distracted by what goes on around them. Some lift their hands as a sign of praise (like when the Psalmist said “I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands” in Psalm 63) or hold their hands out to God as a sign they are surrendering to him or would like to receive from him.

There are so many different musical styles, genres and instruments that can be used in worship. We don’t believe God minds what type of music we use as long as our praise and worship is genuine and from our hearts. The moment that our worship becomes focussed on anything other than connecting with Jesus we know we’ve missed the mark so we keep it simple and accessible and lead our worship with a worship leader, guitar and band. From time to time we’ll invite friends along like Rend Collective who will do something a little bit quirky with bins and tambourines and all sorts to try and involve different musical styles but for the majority of the time we’ll stick to what we know best and what we know the majority of you love.

Why do people do weird things when the Holy Spirit comes in power? We worship an amazing God who loves to draw close to us and, when we meet with him by the power of his Holy Spirit, we can be changed in the most incredible ways. Sometimes as God meets with people they cry, laugh, and move around; or they may just stand completely still. We all respond differently and there’s no right or wrong way. The best thing we can do is be open and allow the Holy Spirit to work in us by saying ‘yes’ to him. We can’t and shouldn’t try and force it or hype anything up and there’s nothing to worry about in terms of how we or anyone else responds. Mike and the team will be talking through what’s happening in the main meetings during ministry times and you’re always welcome to chat to a member of the Enabling team if you have any questions.

SOUL SURVIVOR WEEKS B&C

How can I get the lyrics/chord charts to the songs? Lyrics and chords to many of the songs we sing at Soul Survivor are in books that are available to buy from our stand in the ToolShed. Feel free to pop along and have a browse to find the one you want. We’ll try to post lyrics and chords to some of the new songs written by one of our team on our website www.soulsurvivor.com in the autumn.

articles

For the next few pages we’ll try and answer some of the questions we’ve been asked about why we do things the way we do.


| your questions our answers

How do the worship band get to be the worship band and speakers get to be speakers? We really love hanging out with you guys and because we really value the relationships we build with you the last thing we want to do is let someone have a platform at one of our events without knowing them, trusting them and making sure they are committed to growing in relationship with Jesus. There is no favouritism or special treatment with any of our speakers – we only invite people who we believe will help you strengthen your relationship with Jesus.

What about bands? Can I recommend someone or volunteer my band to play in a venue? articles

If you’re part of a band and already have a good following please send us some music either on a CD or through a link to a website and we’ll check it out. Unfortunately we get a lot of music sent in so we’re sorry if we can’t respond to everyone.

Why does everything else close when the main meetings are on? We want to give everyone the opportunity to meet and worship God together in our main meetings. We want this to be a time when we give Jesus all of our attention, so to ensure we do that we try and remove the distractions of other venues around site by closing them. We also have a lot of volunteers running these venues and we want them to have space and time to meet with God for themselves.

Why is Mike so rude to people on stage? Mike has a bizarre sense of humour and one of the things that really tickles him is taking the mick out of his friends. But please don’t worry, Mike only jokes around with people who know that he loves them and cares for them (he’s actually a big softie which is probably why he can never keep a straight face for long). 76


your questions our answers |

The simple answer is so we can fit lots of you into our venues! If we were to put chairs out for our main meetings we would almost halve the amount of people we could fit in.

Why aren’t there more toilets and showers? For any big event there is a recommended amount of toilets and showers that should be available so no one has to wait too long. We actually hire twice as many toilets and showers as recommended because we know that waiting can be frustrating. Some quick ways of reducing queuing time would be:

Why do you fundraise when it costs us around £100 each to be here? The money you pay for your ticket helps us to pay for part of the event costs but it doesn’t cover everything we need to keep Soul Survivor running. For example we have to pay for SoulNet office space year round in Watford plus essential staff costs to plan and manage our events. So we rely on people donating money to help us carry on doing what we do. If you’d like to find out more about giving to Soul Survivor please see page 79.

• Having a shower at quiet times (such as early morning or late evening) • Being quick and not taking too much time • Now showering at all (not recommended if you’d like your mates to still sit with you at the end of the week) We also have a small army of cleaners making sure the toilets and showers are spick and span but if you see a problem just let our Comms team know and we’ll get the team assembled to sort it out.

Young Leaders

articles

We’re all about raising up young leaders to go out into the world intent on seeing more people come to know Jesus. Over the past few years we’ve had the privilege of working with many great young people who have gone on to serve the church in loads of ways including worship leading, youth work, chuch planting, and much more.

The Persecuted Church

Soul Action Soul Action is making a STAND for the 27 million people currently trapped in slavery and working with projects around the world to stop people from being sold into slavery. Find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved on page 80.

For some people, being a Christian isn’t easy. It may be that following Jesus in their country is a crime or that the government has made meeting together as Christians illegal. We have friends in Central Asia who face these problems daily so we want to try as best we can to support, resource and encourage them despite the difficulties they face.

Missed it? If you miss the meeting when the collection is held, don’t worry – drop your donation in to Info at any point during the week.

make a stand with soul action What is Soul Action?

articles

Soul Action is a partnership between Soul Survivor and Tearfund that works to help people connect with God’s heart for justice. We want to encourage everyone to take a stand against poverty and injustice because we believe this is part of our worship to God and absolutely key to being his disciples. Together we can make a real difference to the pain and need in our world so we want to encourage as many people as possible to make a stand together.

What is the STAND? We have all heard the statistics that 27 million people are trapped in slavery. That’s 27 million men, women and children that today are being denied their basic human rights and are being forced to work in brothels, in homes, on farms, or in sweatshops. We believe our best opportunity to stand up against this horrible injustice is to make seeking justice a part of our everyday lives.

We’d love for you to

make a STAND by: • Signing our petition that asks our Government to do something about slavery. You can sign the petition at our stand in the ToolShed, via our website, by texting[*] STAND and your email address to 87080, or by scanning the icon on this page with your Smartphone. • Spreading the word and encouraging your mates to sign the petition too • Praying with us for change • Raising money for Soul Action projects that are working to prevent slavery. You can find more details of our projects and fundraising ideas on our website. Our simple, every day choices can make a difference so please join the STAND. 27 million people will be glad you did. [*] Texts will cost just your standard network rate

Soul Action are committed to helping those caught up in modern day slavery; we want to remember the forgotten, reveal the hidden and stand with the abused. We need your help. We want as many people as possible to sign our petition to ask the government to do more for those people who are trapped in slavery.

soulnet for youth leaders  oulNet is for anybody who S is involved in youth work in any way – whether it’s your full time job or you volunteer once a month.

82

If you’ve been to a SoulNet event in the last year or so chances are you’ve bumped into Ali Etheridge our SoulNet Director. We asked Ali to gives us the low down on SoulNet and what his plans are for the coming year. Hi Ali! Firstly, can you explain for people who don’t know – what is SoulNet? SoulNet is the part of Soul Survivor that focuses on connecting with youth leaders to encourage and equip them in the work they do with young people. We run loads of events up and down the country throughout the year to try and do this but the main aim of SoulNet is meeting youth leaders, getting to know them and supporting them in the work they do.

SoulNet in the summer SoulNet Breakfasts

The best part of my job is meeting new people, seeing them engage with young people and witnessing what God is doing in their lives. In 2012 we started our prayer breakfasts and equipping days for this very reason. It’s also been a great place to chat about different issues we’re facing as youth workers covering everything from sexuality to mental health. What’s been the biggest challenge of the last 18 months? One of the biggest challenges, not just for me but for youthwork in general, is remembering that one size doesn’t fit all with young people. SoulNet isn’t here to try and teach textbook youthwork but rather to get alongside youthworkers, encourage and support them and pray into their individual situations. Is SoulNet only for full time youthworkers? Absolutely not! SoulNet is for anybody who is involved in youth work in any way – whether it’s your full time job or you volunteer once a month. We want to engage with youth workers where they’re at which is why we meet up in a variety of ways. For those with a free morning we have prayer breakfasts, for those with a free day we have equipping days and for those with a free weekend we have our SoulNet retreat. What excites you about the year ahead? I’m really looking forward to continuing to meet with more youth leaders and more youth groups and hearing stories of how God has been working in them and through them. I’m also really excited about our ‘New to Youth Ministry Day’ which will focus on empowering people who are new to the world of youthwork or people who are considering getting involved in working with young people.

soul survivor youth bible We love God’s word! It’s such an amazing gift that God has given us to help us know him more and understand what it means to follow him. But 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 to create the Soul Survivor Youth Bible packed full of articles and insights. articles

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, 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!

You can get a copy of the Youth Bible at the Soul Survivor stand in the ToolShed for £7.99 .

Who’s it for? Soul61 is for anyone between the ages of 18-24 who feels the call of God on their life to serve his people.

bible reading notes

The New Testament is full of letters. Often we read bits from this letter and that one, key verses that help us understand more about our faith. But it’s sometimes helpful to read these letters all the way through, as they were originally intended to be read. That way, we get the full picture of what the writer of the letter was trying to explain to the recipients. Although these letters are around 2,000 years old, we still face many of the issues that the early church faced. So, over the next few days, we’re going to read 1 John. It is widely believed that the writer of this letter is the same John who wrote John’s Gospel – the apostle John. He really wanted the people who were going to read the letter to understand more about Jesus’ sacrifice and God’s love. John reminds us that we should live in God (or ‘abide in God’ or be ‘one with God’). Think about your life at the moment – is that true for you? Day 1 – Challenge Think about Jesus now, at the start of your time at Soul Survivor. What’s your picture of him? Read 1 John 1:1 – 2:6 and underline what John tells us about Jesus. Is it just me, or does John seem really excited about what he has to say? He has seen it all with his own eyes and now he wants to tell us about Jesus. He calls him ‘the Word that gives life’, ‘the eternal life’ and ‘the sacrifice that takes away our sins’. How does that compare with your picture?

SOUL SURVIVOR WEEKS B&C

bible reading notes |

John’s at an advantage as he’s seen Jesus face to face. But over the next few days we’re going to be exploring being in Jesus’ presence and getting to know him better. We’ll discover for ourselves all that John has to tell us. And we too might get a little bit excited…

 o you need to forgive someone for what D they’ve done to you? Tell someone, ask them to pray with you.  hat does it mean to love the world (verses W 15–17)? How can you avoid it?

Be honest with yourself. Where are you at with Jesus?

A bit of homework So we can get through the whole letter, you need to do a bit of homework (tent-work?). Before tomorrow, try to read 1 John 2:18–27. Who or what leads you away from the presence of Jesus?

Read 1 John 1:5–10 again. Do you think you’ve got any confessing to do? Do it now and receive God’s forgiveness. Reread 2:2 – what do you make of that statement?

Day 2 – Commandment bible reading notes

Who’s your arch-rival? The Master to your Doctor? The Lex Luther to your Superman? Read 1 John 2:7–17 and then John 13:34 to see the commandment John is talking about. John seems really quite harsh here. If we love God but hate someone, we’re in the dark? Think about that person that came to mind earlier. It may be that they hurt or bully you, or that they changed things in your life for the worse. You may be justified in your feelings towards them, but if we’re to love each other, what does that mean for your relationship with this person? Now, if they’ve done you real harm, then that needs sorting out, properly. But you also need to forgive that person. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean they get away with it – it’s more about being able to let go of the bitterness that eats away at you. If you hold on to that grudge, then you cling on to the darkness that has been done to you.

Day 3 – United How have the last few days been? Would you say you’ve met with Jesus? Spent time in his presence? Read 1 John 2:28 – 3:10 and think about what it means to abide in (or ‘live in’ or ‘be united with’) Christ. At the end of the homework passage, John warns his readers to stay united with their hearts with Christ, and this is where we pick it up. God is holy – so holy that he can’t tolerate sin in his presence. If we abide in God, we can’t bring sin with us. But how does John describe what Jesus came to do in verse 5? Jesus came to take away our sin. So if we spend time with him, we get to know him better, we become more like him and this leads to wanting to live his way. And we can abide with God, because he has taken our sin completely away. R  ead Psalm 103:11-12 and spend a minute or two thinking about those words. What does this tell you about God? Can you say that you ‘abide in Christ’?

bible reading notes |

Wholehearted. Is that an easy word to apply to your life? Why or why not? Read 1 John 3:11 – 4:6 and think about how Jesus was wholehearted. John has talked about Cain murdering his brother Abel. You might think, ‘I’ve not murdered my brother, so I’m OK.’ But in verse 15, John echoes what Jesus says in Matthew 5:2122 that outwardly sticking to God’s commands means nothing if you go against them in your heart. Jesus sacrificed everything to save us – he loved us so much he held nothing back – and we should love with the same all-out commitment. Spending time in God’s presence changes us to be more like him. If we only say we love God, but don’t show it, what use is that? Read verse 16 one more time. What would this mean in your life?  hat have you done to show W God’s love to someone recently? What can you do today?

Day 5 – Love It’s the last day you discovered?

– what have

as God loves us, the danger of saying you love God without showing love to others, God’s love for us resulted in our salvation.

NOTES

As you go home, how might what you’ve explored, learnt and experienced change your life? John’s description of our relationship with God calls for a full-on commitment to living in him and showing his love to others. Back in your daily routine, what’s going to change for you?  hink of one person in your T life to whom you need to show more love. Ask God to help you. Commit to doing something which shows God’s love to them.

bible reading notes

Day 4 – Sacrifice

Day 6 – Eternal We can meet with Jesus wherever we are, not just at church and events like Soul Survivor. How are you going to spend time in his presence today? Read 1 John 5 and choose a verse which sums up your time away. As we move back into our everyday lives, it’s important not to let the sacred times we’ve experienced be forgotten. If we spend time in Jesus’ presence, we can’t help but be changed by him. How has he changed you?

Read 1 John 4:7–21 and highlight every use of ‘love’, ‘loving’ or ‘loved’. Your Bible should be a mass of colour. As if he’s afraid that we won’t get the picture, John goes all out to help us understand what God is like. God is love. John continues the themes he’s already used: Jesus is the Saviour of the world, abide in God, love others SOUL SURVIVOR WEEKS B&C

One of the things we’re really passionate about at Soul Survivor is meeting with God. During the main meetings we will always try to let God lead what’s going on and make space for him to meet with us. 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 opportunity for God to work in our lives and it’s brilliant to be as open to him as possible. Don’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 (wearing bright pink badges) who will be around to give you a guiding hand or answer your questions. We’d really encourage you to get along to our seminar on day 2 called ‘Praying for people so that stuff happens’ too.

What happens? Ministry times usually begin with an invitation from someone on the main stage for people to wait for and respond to the Holy Spirit. The most important thing to remember is that this is God’s work, not ours. Try to stay open to what God might want to do in your life and invite him to speak to you. Everyone responds differently to meeting with

God so try not to focus too much on your reaction or the reactions of those around you. We can experience God in all sorts of ways and physical manifestations aren’t the important thing. If you’d like to receive from God just stay focused on him. If you’d like to pray for other people, have a read on for some helpful tips.

A guide to praying for others… When you’re praying remember you are there to encourage those seeking God and to bless what the Holy Spirit is doing. There is no ‘right way’ to pray for each other but 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. Lots of it is just straight-forward common sense!  lease only pray for someone who shares your P gender. Prayer ministry can bring up all sorts of personal stuff and so it’s a great principle to have guys praying for guys and girls praying for girls. Even if you’re married, or you are a youth leader praying for someone you know, we’d ask you to bear this in mind to avoid any confusion for others around you. Thanks.


prayer ministry |

I f appropriate you can speak into the situation or condition in Jesus’ name, but 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 and always seek to build up, comfort and encourage the person you’re praying for (1 Corinthians 14v3).  ncourage the person to receive from God and E be still rather than pray for themselves. Some people may show this attitude by opening their hands in front of them.  he laying on of hands to pray is Biblical. We T see Jesus touch a man to heal him of leprosy in Mark 1 v40-45 and he lays hands on the children to bless them in Matthew 19v13-15. That said, not everyone is comfortable with this so please ask before you pray. Please also use common sense about where you place your hands so it doesn’t become distracting for the person you are praying for.  eep your eyes open when you pray for K 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. I f someone does fall over in the power of the Holy Spirit 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). If you can, put a jumper or jacket under the person’s head. It is not always necessary to stay with them for the whole time but if you move away encourage them to keep receiving from God and keep an eye on them to check they are safe. It can be helpful to whisper to them that you will return in a little while so they know that they are not forgotten. I t can become very hot in the main meetings when there are lots of people together during times of prayer ministry. If the person you are praying for is sweating, offer them a drink of water. If you haven’t got any yourself there is usually water and cups available at the front of the stage or you can ask someone on the Enabling Team.  isten carefully both to the person you are L praying with, and to God. Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and encouragement, and 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. It’s very important to allow the expression of feelings 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 wants 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.

 on’t be afraid to ask someone what they D 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!

I f someone has been crying for a long while or releasing deep pain they may start breathing too fast which can lead to spasms in their hands and legs. Encourage the person to concentrate on breathing slowly – this won’t stop what God is doing but will make sure the person is OK. Remember you can always call over a member of the Enabling Team if you are worried.

mobility of the joint or limb and tell it to be healed in Jesus’ name. After this short prayer ask the person to test for pain and mobility in the injured area. Ask for the number out of 10 of the level of pain and mobility to see if it has gone down. Repeat the prayer, if necessary, as many times as you are both comfortable with.

I t’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…

I f at any time you feel out of your depth then ask for help from the Enabling Team. 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!

Praying for physical healing When Jesus healed people in the Bible he spoke to the sickness and ailments and commanded them to be healed. Jesus gives us the power and authority to do the same in his name. So, for example, if you are praying for a sight problem, speak to the eye and tell it to ‘Be open and see in Jesus’ name’. If you’re praying for an ear, speak to the ear and tell it to be open and hear in the name of Jesus. When praying for injuries that cause pain or immobility ask the person before you start to pray what level of pain they have on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest pain possible). Speak to the condition in the name of Jesus and command it to be healed. Speak to the pain and tell it very firmly to ‘Stop it,’ in Jesus’ name (but remember you don’t need to shout!). If appropriate speak to the

Not 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, keeping in mind how you would like to be prayed for, and constantly asking for God’s help. 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 someone would like extra prayer you can refer them to a member of the Enabling Team or to the Chat Room. Encourage the person to receive as much prayer as they like during the event but also to seek ongoing ministry support from their home church. Don’t make any appointments to pray with the person outside of the meeting.

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.

Wristbands Your wristband is your BFF or your closest companion. You should stick to your wristband like glue (although we don’t advise gluing your wristband to your arm). Without it you won’t be able to access any of the lovely venues around site. In the event of you losing your BFF you will need to come to Info and for £40 we will supply you with a new BFF. If you break it, there is a charge of £1 for a new wristband providing you bring the pieces of the old band to show us you had one in the first place. It’s really important that you only ever wear a wristband that has your name on it as we may need to identify you by it in an emergency. If your wristband doesn’t have your name on it, head to Info and get that sorted out for free.

Village Hosts Wherever you’re camping this week, you’ll have village hosts armed with hot chocolate, wide smiles and a knowledge of all things Soul Survivor. Their main purpose is to make you feel at home so pop over and say hello, borrow their mallet if you forgot yours, and chuck all your Soul Survivor questions their way.

The Post Before Twitter and Facebook took the world by storm, people used to write letters to each other. Over the years keypads have replaced pens and LED screens have replaced paper but there is still something nice about receiving a letter, parcel or card. To allow you to take part in this dying art we’ve teamed up with the showground to send and receive post during your time at Soul Survivor. This is the information you’ll need to give, should someone want to send something to you: Your name AND your delegate reference number (starting B2K13 or C2K13…), c/o Soul Survivor, Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, 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. If you need to send something, you can pop it in the post box next to the Show Ground office.

Lost Property

Every year we find bags full of lost property with everything from Bibles to beach balls and sleeping bags to hair straighteners losing their owners. Whatever you lose and wherever you lose it, we’ll try and help you get reunited. Just drop by Comms or Info and we’ll help you have a dig through what’s been handed in. At the end of the event we take all the valuable objects (cameras, wallets, phones, jewellery, Bibles etc) back to our office in Watford so please give us a call on 0303 333 1 333 if you don’t realise something isn’t where it should be until you get home. Our offices will be shut until mid-September but we will try and get your property back to you soon after we get back. 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!

Communion

A part of the week that we really love is getting together for Communion. To do this we start the main meeting at 10am on Day Five (instead of the usual 11am start). 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!).

Food

Some youth leaders are blessed with a culinary expertise that allows them to whip up the finest cuisine the world has ever seen. Others can produce the hearty grub needed to sustain their group for a week in the countryside and others panic at the sight of a packet of pasta. Well if you fall into the last camp, fear not – we have some of the finest food vans in all the country here to serve you. You’ll find everything from sandwiches and jacket potatoes, to chips and Chinese food, as well as plenty of pancakes and doughnuts. Sweet.

supermarket & Directions:

Cake and a cup of tea go together like toast and butter, Piglet and Pooh or Mike and bad hair. So if you’re looking for a slice of something nice, a mug of something hot or a can of something cold pop along to one of our cafes:

The nearest supermarket is Tesco which is a 10 minute drive away (where you’ll also find the nearest cash point). To get there, turn left out of the Main or Blue gate, follow the A37 into the centre of Shepton Mallet and look for the superstore signs.

Café Uno

Using the wonders of the interweb you can also order your goods online and have them delivered to the showground. Handy! Just use the following address and make sure you’re available to collect your shopping from the main gate:

Grounds (which also offers breakfast) Soul Survivor Café & XLP Café (in the ToolShed) You can also buy sweets and cans of drink in Dreggs.

Onsite Shop: You may be on a showground but that doesn’t mean you don’t have the convenience of a corner shop. In the humble surroundings of a small shed, the shop provides all manner of things from fresh bread, pastries, milk and fruit, through to everyday essentials like toothbrushes and toiletries. You’ll also find ice creams, chocolate, crisps and other tasty treats there too.

YOUR NAME, YOUR VILLAGE, Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 6QN.

the only way is ethics |

We care about the environment and try to do our bit every summer in a number of ways.

The only way is Ethics

We would love you to get involved and help look after the environment while enjoying your time at Soul Survivor. Throughout the campsites and outside the venues you’ll find separate bins for glass, plastic, cardboard and cans. Please split out your rubbish and make sure the right stuff goes in the right bin. Each camping village will also have a recycling point where you can grab plastic rubbish bags to take back to your tent.

Recycle unused food

IMPORTanT INFO

If you’re a group leader you’ll know how hard it is to calculate how much food you’ll need for a week. Well if you overbuy and miss the mark, don’t worry – head down to Comms on Day 5 (next to the Info room) with your non-perishable and unopened foods and we’ll donate it to a local charity.

Don’t waste water

Let’s all try and save as much water as possible by following some of these helpful tips: ★ Try and take quick showers. ★ Make sure all taps are switched off after use. ★ Try and only use the water you need (e.g. don’t boil gallons of water for two potatoes).

Take care of your turf

Believe it or not, when we aren’t here the showground is a very beautiful place and we want to leave it as neat and tidy as possible. To help us do this please take any rubbish away with you before you go home or drop it in the recycling bins.

Re-use where possible

In order to cut down on waste across the site please re-use cutlery and plates wherever possible. Helpful tip – if you don’t want to wash up, leave your plates outside and pray for rain. SOUL SURVIVOR WEEKS B&C

We’re doing our bit by...

★A  lways looking at how much paper we use for printing and reducing it where we can. ★ Ensuring that all of the hoodies we sell are from companies that ethically source their material and give their employees a fair wage. ★M  aking sure all our tea and coffee (and as much of the other food as we can) is fairlytraded. ★M  aking biodegradable wooden cutlery available in all our cafes. ★M  aking more bins available for rubbish and recycling. 105

Join Ali Martin for two days about clearly communicating the word of God. If you struggle to get your point across when speaking and preaching or you want to brush up on your skills come along! The days will work best if you go to both, but if you can only make it to one, they will stand alone. Soul Survivor - Watford Warehouse

If you want to grow in the knowledge and gifts of the Holy Spirit and learn how to follow his lead on a daily basis why not join us for Naturally Supernatural? Over the space of four days we’ll be exploring Biblical teaching and worshiping together whilst leaving plenty of time to allow God to speak to us, move among us, equip us and heal us.
