Times away We also go away as a group (yrs 9+) twice a year. In the summer we spend 5 days camping at Soul Survivor with thousands of other Christian teenagers, there’s worship, prayer ministry and teaching about how to live as Christians as teenagers in our culture. Westbrook is a weekend away on the Isle of Wight – just our youth group, getting to know each other better. There are games, activities and space to worship, pray and learn about Jesus.
