Unite 2019

From Friday 24th to Monday 27th May a group of boys from the 3rd Enfield joined with around 280 young people and leaders from across England and Wales for Unite at Felden Lodge.

Unite is a weekend camp featuring a semi-structured programme, primarily aimed at 11 to 18 year olds. It is a great opportunity to enjoy a range of different activities, explore the Christian faith and meet other people from around the region.

The weekend saw opportunities to take part in activities such as football, archery, American football, water games, a quiz, a campfire, human Cluedo, escape rooms and much more. The Sunday afternoon saw the Unite Carnival take place, which included activities such as various inflatables, zorb football, splat the rat, sponge throwing, coconut shy and sumo suits.

Evening entertainment included disco bingo, films, a neon-themed disco as well as Lip Sync meets Stars in Their Eyes, where lots of people got involved to put on a series of great performances!

There were times of worship where everyone came together in the Marquee (the main venue). The speaker was Dez Johnston, Director of Alpha Scotland, who spoke on the theme "Avengers: Some Assembly Required". For those who wanted some quieter activities, the Cornerstone was a place to try some crafts, just chill out or have a chat with one of the pastoral team.

Each group at Unite was part of either the blue, red or yellow village, each of which was led by two Village Leaders. They competed against each other to earn points for taking part in activities and winning competitions, with the aim of being named the 'best village' during the Unite awards ceremony at the end of the weekend. This year we were a part of the yellow village for the first time - thanks to our Village Leaders, Alexie and Owen, who were great all weekend! The winning village this year was the blue village for the second year in a row - well done to them!

Unite 2019 was a brilliant weekend and we thank all those who were involved in organising and running it. We're already looking forward to Unite 2020!
