It’s not long now until some of the Youth Group along with Ruth and Lois are off to Malawi, a week in fact. Last weekend they traveled down to the tip of the Kintyre peninsula, Southend, to visit Steve and Chris Fulcher at their new parish. As you can see the weather was not great, however that did not detract in the slightest from the enjoyment of the weekend.

They had a good long walk on Saturday afternoon with Steve and Alfie, visiting St Columba’s footprints, where Columba supposedly first landed in Scotland on his way to Iona. In the evening they went to a ceilidh in Campbeltown which was a fundraiser for the Congo.

Sunday was a Christening service at Southend Parish Church, and the young people did a drama about belonging, and Ruth and Chris played the guitar.

We camped on the field in two large tents. The weather was variable, we put the tents up in good weather, then on Friday evening we had showers which continued throughout Saturday, but Sunday the sun came out and we all dried out nicely.

Lucy, Lizzie and Alice, Youth Group members, were volunteering as Event Crew and were very busy, mostly down at the lake launching boats!

canoeing, the climbing wall and abseiling, swimming, sumo wrestling, giant games, gyroscope, the list goes on and on …..

We also attended the meetings and worship, split into two groups, older and younger, and learnt more about what God can do in our lives and what difference God can make to our lives.
