Bures Youth Alpha 2016

12 young people.  2 months.  12 films on life, faith and God. Lots of pizza, chat, deep discussions and fun.

We covered a whole load of topics, including who Christians believe Jesus is, prayer, the bible, healing, knowing our purpose and how we choose to live our lives.  We asked a lot of questions, told stories and really enjoyed listening to everyone’s thoughts and ideas.

In the Easter Holidays we went to Assington Hall for the day.  We spray-painted our own t-shirts; played games in the grounds like golf with catapults and giant football; and had a chance to really think through and ask questions about how God might be involved in our daily lives.
One girl attending said that Youth Alpha had been “eye-opening and really just incredible.”  The most common answers ticked for what they’d got of it were feeling more at peace, making new friends and finding new purpose in life.
I think all of us – leaders included – grew in some way during Youth Alpha.  I hope that everyone involved is more aware of how much they are loved!
