Sleep over for Syria

As part of the October holidays we hosted an overnight event in St Johns church in conjunction with St Johns Church and St Michaels churches to raise funds and the young people’s interest and understanding of the plight of refugees.

This was a 12 hour event where young people explored the theme of ‘home’ and what that would mean to a refugee by doing research, taking group decisions, watching short films and giving up items from their simulated ‘home’ accommodation. Although there was very little sleep and very tight living accommodation the 14 young people gave very positive feedback and raised a total of £160.
