20th CSUK National Gathering
The 20th Anniversary CSUK National Gathering will see CS members from all over the UK come together at the Tubestation in Polzeath for this special occasion. It has been 20 years since a small group gathered in North Devon and dreamed what CSUK could become. We are really excited to announce that Brett Davis, CS International Director and Founder will be our main speaker, together with his wife Gill, an experienced speaker in churches, schools and conferences.As this is the 20th Anniversary Gathering and space is limited, the National Gathering this year is only open to current members of Christian Surfers UK. If your membership has expired or you wish to become a member there is a link on the booking form to do this.For those of you who have not attended a National Gathering before, it's a fantastic opportunity to catch up with the family of Christian Surfers, surf together, and enjoy times of worship, teaching and fellowship.It will be an informal weekend which we hope will inspire you to continue to be a presence and witness in your local surf communities.It will be a great time for fun, food, fellowship, studying God's word and worshipping. We will be hearing some inspiring stories of God working in people's lives through the work of Christian Surfers UK and about some key initiatives happening in 2014. There will also be opportunities to hear about the work of Christian Surfers across Europe and the rest of the world.We are very aware that as the ministry of Christian Surfers UK has developed, so has the profile of our members, many now with young familes. With this in mind, we want to encourage families to come and so we will be providing some form of child care and a youth programme. We would love to see you and the rest of your family.For more info on the conference please email David Renyard - firstname.lastname@example.orgLOCATIONThe 20th Anniversary National Gathering will be held at the Tubestation, Polzeath and we will be camping at the Valley Caravan Park just behind the Tubestation (PL27 6SS).
