Mel Brown: March 2019
82 children and young people from around the district attended Act 29, which took place in Bicester in February. The day was filled with engaging and exciting activities which encouraged the participants to explore what it means to be courageous. The theme was incorporated within the four elements of the Methodist Church: Courageous in worship; Courageous in learning and caring; Courageous in service and Courageous in evangelism. The Youth President Jasmine Yeboah who was the guest speaker for the day, challenged the children and young people to dare to be different, to be courageous and to be themselves. It was a very exciting event from start to finish with the participants taking part in worship, drama, sports, a Lego workshop, and sessions on exploring the Bible, service and evangelism.
Hannah shared her thoughts on how she thought the event went: "I thought it was a fun and thought-provoking event which had a great atmosphere. It was lovely to meet lots of new people from around the district and hear their views which consequently made me reflect on my own. I would definitely recommend for people to go next year as the enthusiasm and caring approach made the day highly enjoyable,"
