I'm just about to head out the door for our regional 20's weekend, which I am leading. We've got 300+ attending, in Bude, Cornwall, and it's going to be great! I'm not a great fan of driving on Britain's congested roads, but I always like pointing the car west. In large measure this is the legacy of childhood holidays in Cornwall, and the inbred sense that heading west always means fun. Traveling east implies more congestion, and flat landscapes, and estuary English. Going west means rolling hills, clotted cream, and (now rightly esteemed!) Cornish pasties.
Since moving to Poole three years ago, going west has also meant being part of a movement of churches that is an especially dynamic part of the larger whole that we call Newfrontiers. We are actively planting churches, involved in many exciting things overseas, and able to do things like have a 20's weekend where the only limiting factor was lack of venue capacity rather than lack of interest. Over 1,000 people have booked into Westpoint, our summer camp since booking opened on Tuesday, and there is a real sense of momentum among us.
So I'd appreciate your prayers this weekend - I want to see a big crowd of young adults getting fresh vision for God's global mission. And then we can send them out to bless the world - to the west, yes, but also to the north and the south and the east.
