Where else can you spend a week with some of the most enthusiastic people you'll ever meet?
You'll befriend, lead and encourage the children, get alongside them in small groups, pray with and for them, minister to them in the power of the Holy Spirit and encourage them to pray for each other. You'll serve as a small group leader, either on your own or paired up with another team member who you may be asked to supervise. Some teams also need activity leaders who organise, prepare and supervise drama, games or craft, and assist with the practical needs of the team while not being directly responsible for a group of children. Your day will start with a time of team prayer and preparation. Some teams have informal activities in the afternoon (e.g., games, sports or water fights) and some teams have a meeting for prayer and preparation in the afternoon. The time is rewarding, and needs energy and commitment. You will need to be a Christian with an active, living faith, a heart for children, and regular attendance at a church/fellowship.
Limited young team places (13-16 years depending on the team) are available, but you will need to apply early as they are very popular. For the CSW conference there are now only young team places for 15 and 16 year olds available.
There are two teams that work with Gems, the young team for those aged 13-16 yrs and the adult team. For both teams the approx hours are: 8am-1pm and 2-4pm
The LSE Gems team will be having a Vision Day on Saturday 29 June 2013. This is an opportunity to meet the team you will be serving with, get a feel for what the team is about and pray for God's plans for Gems/New Wine and each other.
Location: St Cuthbert's Church, Whitley Road, Hoddesdon, EN11 0PU.
Drinks will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.
