Lambourne End Residential
Our annual residential brings together young people aged 11-18 from churches within the East London Local Area Group (Barking URC, Gants Hill URC, Grange Park URC, Leytonstone United Free, Seven Kings United Free, Trinity Walthamstow URC, Vine URC, Walthamstow Asian URC & Wanstead URC)
We provide a programme of Christian teaching and worship, sessions on current topics with discussion, games and centre led activities made to challenge & broaden horizons, to encourage each other, grow in faith and work together as a team whilst having fun.
We support young people in their faith through the friendships they form with young people from different churches. For some young people this is the only connection they have to other young Church going Christians outside their Church and sometimes even outside their social lives.
We also develop leaders by encouraging and providing those who are 18+ with leadership opportunities in facilitating sessions, programme planning and supporting young people.
We also hold a church service put together with the young people and led by the young people to show parents and church members within the East London Group what we got up to.
