What is Break Away?
‘Break Away’ is a fun weekend away for 11-18 year olds and their youth leaders from churches across the county to explore faith and build community. The weekend will include playing games (they might get messy), engaging worship, asking big questions, delving into the Bible and taking part in a variety of other fun activities together. Weather permitting we will have a camp fire. The weekend is aimed at anyone aged 11-18 who wants to grow in their faith or find out more about the big questions of life.
Why Break Away?
School, homework, Instagram, gaming, family all want our attention. How do we manage to fit Jesus into all of this? Break Away will give you the space to consider all these things whilst having great fun. You will get to know others in your own youth group as well as meeting groups from churches throughout Gloucestershire. You might meet people from school, whom you didn’t know went to church. You might make new friends.
The team at Youth for Christ Gloucestershire know the challenge of being a young person trying to explore faith and serve Jesus. We think that whilst following Jesus can be tough, we also believe that it can be fun and exciting.
Join us and break away from the things that hold us back and have an exciting adventure with Jesus.
We will be staying at The Poplars near Ledbury. The Poplars has en-suite bedrooms. No wet tents and cold muddy showers here! You will share single sex rooms and wherever possible, with young people from your own group. Room sizes vary between four and six young people per room. In order to save you money, bedding is not included in the price, and therefore you will need to provide your own sheets, duvet cover and pillow cases.
With most spaces being on the ground floor, disabled access is good.
What do I need to know?
Who: Anyone between the ages of 11-18 year (school years 7-13) who come as part of a youth group with their youth leaders. If you have no youth group to come with, you can come without a leader but we would ask for an email to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure we have adequate leaders to support you.
When: Friday 25th—Sunday 27th February 2022
Cost: Super Early bird £80 by 1st September 2021.
Early Bird £90 by 31st October 2021.
Late bookings £100 Spaces are limited so the later the booking the less likely we will be able to guarantee bookings or rooms exclusively shared with your youth groups.
The cost includes food, accommodation and activities.
Where finance is a real challenge for you, we would request you contact our Director in confidence, to discuss how we can help. Whilst we have no specific fund for this, and we have costed the weekend at a loss to Youth for Christ, we would not want a young person to miss out on finance alone. We will work with you to see how this can be overcome. Paul can be contacted on 07855 408068 or email@example.com
A full kit list and programme will be provided near the weekend.
