Every summer our STAV Youth head to the amazing Soul Survivor Festival. Here they take over Bath & West Showground for five days with about 5,000 other young people.
Soul Survivor's main focus is to follow Jesus better, so is really aimed at (Christian) young people. The teenagers who go are from a diverse range of different churches and denominations, although people with no faith background also come along as the festival is made accessible to all.
Everyone gathers for the morning and evening meetings in the Big Top, which tend to include worship, teaching and ministry. Then throughout the day there is loads of fun stuff to do. You have the chance to get the low down on all manner of issues in their massive array of seminars, hang out with friends drinking hot chocolate in makeshift cafes or check out live evening gigs and meet new people.
The STAV Youth will be heading to Soul Survivor's final Week C happening in August. So if you're 11-18 and want to join the us this year then get in touch with Kev to book you a place. The cost is £190 which includes your ticket, travel and food.
