CSUK National Gathering
The 19th CSUK National Conference has a new venue and a new name! CS members from all over the UK with be coming together at the Tubestation, Polzeath for the CSUK National Gathering.For those of you who have not attended a National Gathering before, itís a surf camp combined with times of worship, teaching and fellowship. It will be an informal weekend, which we hope will inspire you to continue to outreach to your local surf communities. It is also a great opportunity to meet Christian Surfers from all over the UK and beyond. It will be a time for studying Godís word, worshipping, focussing on news fromlocal groups, and hearing some greatstories of what God is doing through key initiatives with Christian Surfers in Europe and World-wide. You will also be hearing about Godís direction for CSUK in 2013, having fellowship, fun and hopefully some great surf.We are very aware that as the ministry of Christian Surfers UK has developed, so has the profile of our members, so we now have far more families with babies and children/teenagers. With this in mind we want to encourage families to come, and as a result we will be laying on facilities to make this easier for you. We plan to provide some form of child care and a young peoples programme, so we would love to see you and the rest of your family.LOCATIONThe National Gathering will be held at the Tubestation, Polzeath and we will be camping at the Valley Caravan Park just behind the beach. (PL27 6SS) Itís all in view of the beach which is literally across the road.SPEAKERThis year we will not have one key note speaker, but a collection of contributions from some of the key leaders within Christian Surfers. The theme will be based on ĎWho do you surf for?í, and we will be reflecting on the challenge of submitting our surfing to God, what that means, and what we might want to do differently as a result.Will also feature material from some key note speakers at the recent CS International Conference.ACCOMMODATIONWe will be based at the Valley Caravan Park, as usual it will be a camping environment, so bring a tent or van.
