Sheffield: young believers invited to Breathe Deep
Young Christians across South Yorkshire are getting together on Saturday (30 January) to "listen to the rhythm of God" ...
On Saturday 30 January, 250 young people from churches all over South Yorkshire will gather to breathe deep, to think, to have fun and to discover God together. Steven Croft, Bishop of Sheffield will be speaking at the event encouraging the 11-18 year olds to listen to the rhythm of God in each of us and in the world around us.
The day has been organised to encourage young people to look at their relationship with God, their own lifestyle and how to grow as a disciple of Jesus.
Activities aplenty are in store: there will be time set aside to worship God in creative ways, hear from Bishop Steven about finding God in the world, and a selection of workshops that will stretch thinking. There will be time to socialize with others and have fun during the day with games, inflatables, games consoles, prizes, video challenges and Subway for lunch!
Mike North, Children and Young People’s Advisor for the diocese said: “We are geared up for an amazing day together with great food and fantastic inflatables. I pray that young people from all over the diocese encounter God together in the worship and develop life-giving spiritual habits through the workshops.”
Bishop Steven said: “This is the third time we have ran this event and each year it just gets bigger and better. The day doesn’t shy away from tackling some really key issues for our young people, while also offering them fun, friendship, guidance and space to be themselves. It is always fantastic to have the opportunity to hear and discuss the questions young people have about faith, God and religion.”
