August may seem like a long time ago but this was such a great opportunity, we had to tell you about it! Every 4 years, Norfolk Show Ground hosts the Norfolk Scout Jamboree, an event which attracts over 6000 guides and scouts.
As part of the promises renewal, we were invited to speak on the subject of unity on the main stage, with amplification around the site. A former scout himself, Nick stepped up to the challenge with some help from Emmi.
After a messy game with yogurt and some audience participation, Nick talked about our God-given desire to be in community and the need for forgiveness when it goes wrong – as demonstrated by Jesus! It went down well and we had several follow up conversations in the Diocese of Norwich faith tent!
Other recent partnerships have included running the youth programme at ‘Revive’ weekend with FOL Ashill and taking part in the Cathedral@ night event where we ran a board games group and Youth Alpha from 7pm to 7am!!
