Citygate Students and Twenties exists to see radical, faith filled believers equipped to live a life that is drastically counter-culture, but extends immensely powerful love and compassion to the world around them.

Anyone feel like a weekend in Cornwall?

Oh, you do?? Fantastic, cos that's exactly what we're going to do. 
Can I introduce you to
In Bude, a regional Students and Twenties Weekend Away,

For those of you who are unaware, Guy Miller, who leads our church also heads up the Apostolic team for the Southwest Region. This includes every Newfrontiers church from Portsmouth, up to Bristol and over as far as Plymouth...just a few then...

In Bude will be a great opportunity for all of the Students and Twenties from across this region to get together, build community, meet some new people and hear from God. The teaching is going to be absolute quality, with the key speakers being Matt Hosier who leads Gateway Church in Poole and Julian Adams, who is originally from South Africa, now in Manchester and has a fantastic prophetic ministry.

Students and Twenties need to get together in groups of 4,5,6,7,8,9 or 11 to live in a chalet together for the weekend. Chalets are self catering so each chalet will be responsible for sorting out their own food, and who sleeps where etc.
If you want to have a little look at the website of the place where we'll be staying, take a little peek by clicking here:

Prices vary based on which accommodation you choose, and how many people are in each chalet/house do-dah. Prices are really reasonable. The average will be around £30 for the weekend but are likely to be less. Obviously food and transport will be the additional expenses but it's definitely a high priority for your pennies, rather than a trip to Topshop or a drink in the pub. 

Bookings will be open from this weekend, running on a first come, first serve basis. You can provisionally book a chalet but to confirm your place, it must be paid by the following week at the latest or the reservation is removed, and open to anyone else.
Obviously some accommodation is likely to disappear quicker than others so make sure you get the one you want by booking in quickly. Each chalet will need to have a team leader who is responsible for finances and that chalet.

aside from the fact that a weekend away and a trip to Cornwall sound like a pretty great jaunt, it's not just about a few days away and having ludicrous amounts of fun, although we will definitely be doing that. 

We go away because we want to hear from God. We go away because we think that God wants to do something with this generation. We go away because when we're together we grow, learn and strengthen each other. We go away because community is vital. We go away because we want to see we're not alone. We go away because we need some perspective. We go away because we want to be making disciples and going to the ends of the earth, and we need to learn how to do that.

And with sunsets like this, why would you not come

Good enough reasons to get super excited about In Bude? Most definitely.
