Thank you for your support for Ventures and Falcons!
We see year after year what a huge difference these very special holidays make to children and teenagers.
Residential Venture holidays have been running for over 50 years. With your support, around 500 children and teenagers are awarded a bursary each year to enable them to attend one of these life-changing holidays. Here's what happens next:
'During the ten days at camp, The bursaries we received enanbled young people to go ... who would otherwise have never been able to afford it. With teaching from Mark's Gospel, we looked at who Jesus is, what he did at the cross and what it means to be a follower of Jesus and an 11-14 year old. We saw our young people engage and respond to the good news of Jesus Christ, deepening their faith, asking questions, and being challenged to live wholeheartedly for Jesus.' Matthew, Venture leader
Falcons provide challenge, excitement, fun, rest and laughter for 8-18 year olds who face disadvantage in their day-to-day lives. Each summer around 20 heavily subsidised holidays take place providing respite, fellowship and adventure to up to 500 children and young people.
'I dont think we can quite put into words the experience of our first Falcon Holiday. We have never been so amazed and humbled by a group of young people, or what God can do through us if we follow his calling.' Dan and Anna Wood, Falcon leaders
