The Big Weekend, which takes place at Polyapes Scout Camp in Cobham next weekend (13-14th September), promises again to be another great weekend of gospel envisioning, wholesome fellowship and food, and outdoors fun!
We are really excited this year to be joined by Kings Church Walton, Christ Church Kingston, Canbury Park Church and Cornerstone Church Teddington for our first ever Church Big Weekend together as a South West Cluster, making it BIGGER than ever!
Also new to this year is our very own “Polyapes Got Talent” – your chance to showcase a natural ability – whether it is gurgling the tune to Amazing Grace, or showing everyone how double-jointed you are.
The Saturday will kick off with a BIG picnic at 1pm, followed by an afternoon of ‘All the Fun of the Fair’ – Face-painting, inflatables, coconut shy – you name it! Cornerstone FC will also be running eleven-a-side matches on the top field during the afternoon.
Once we’ve burned off our lunch, and worked up an appetite, we will then tuck into our BIG BBQ. The evening programme then follows, first with an exciting Baptism celebration, the talent show, a bonfire, and finally glow games in the dark before bed.
The Sunday morning will comprise most of our teaching, brought to us by our very own Andy Bruins and Simon Martin, who will be focussing us in on two themes – ‘The Church’ and ‘The World’.
