If you’re in school years 4, 5 or 6 it’s a chance for you and your friends to learn more about God and have some EPIC fun with loads of others, friends and new friends..
Why is it called
EPIC means : Surpassing the usual or ordinary, particularly in scope or size and heroic and impressive in quality
Our heart is that the weekend does just that… It goes beyond being usual or ordinary. That it’s such a huge weekend that you will never forget it. That you will remember meeting God that weekend and also you will become EPIC kids… Heroic and impressive among your family and friends.
What happens at the weekend?
We sit in a big circle, we eat cheese and play duck duck goose for the whole weekend……. errrr no.. not likely!!!!
We eat lots of food, we gunge the leaders and you might get pretty messy too. We hope to have a campfire, and games that you would never get the chance to play anywhere else as they’re a little bit crazy. There’s often drama and worship and loads more awesome stuff.
This year promises to be truly EPIC – you will make new friends, have so much fun you won’t want to go home and be desperate to come back next year.
