Lock In 14 welcomes 300 young people for fun, fellowship and faith
30th October 2014
300 people attended from parishes across Beds and Herts, Luton and Barnet. And from 1 school.
Fun, fellowship and food was provided music, laser guns, toast, hot choc, pampering, computer games, lego movie.
Also on offer were several opportunities for the young people to reflect on their own life and faith journeys using some unusual things such as sand, origami, tying laces on a cross as well as quiet areas and prayer tents for more conventional forms of reflection and spiritual expression.
Katharine Welby-Roberts spoke compellingly about what peace or its absence looked and felt like in the lives of the young people and she shared some of her own experiences of depression and spiritual struggle.
The atmosphere was relaxed and people seemed to be enjoying themselves as well as engaging with what was offered.
We offer this because like adults, young people have deep spiritual appetites which need to fed, in a way which is relevant to them.
