M:Powered aims to both practically and supernaturally empower young people to realise their full potential in Christ Jesus. Passionate times of worship, small group bible studies and powerful preaching are just some of the ways M:Powered connects with our Father God in this truly life changing time together.
M:Powered returned again this summer with it’s annual youth conference held at the picturesque Nettle Hill Training and Conference Centre. M:Powered saw 45 young people gather together to learn what it means to follow Jesus.
The primary focus of the week was following Jesus. In exploring this we looked at the role of the scriptures, prayer and worship, silence, reflective writing and intimacy in our everyday lives. Special guests came in to share from their own experiences adding a unique and diverse flavour to the week.
Each day had morning worship times, small groups over lunch, boys and girls time, an evening meeting and then finished with the Live Lounge Café.
During the week God met everyone where they were at and brought them to a deeper understanding of His love for them as His children. There were times of high praise and intimate silence as young people learnt to offer up their lives in worship to the creator of everything. The young people seemed to catch a spirit of prayer and would often take the initiative in praying for each other during the course of the week.
The last night saw the return of the ‘Open MicNight’ where everyone had an opportunity to express themselves musically or otherwise. This saw a variety of singers, poets, comedians and more showcasing their talents before a warm and honouring audience.
The week ended with a Q&A session with Gareth and Sandra Duffty for which the young people had been thinking of questions throughout the week. It was a lovely way to finish; enjoying sitting back and listening to some mind blowing answers.
All in all, it has been a privilege to be involved with the M:Powered camp again this Summer! It was a really powerful, life-changing time for so many of the young people who attended. The M:Powered community is learning to boldly take hold of the life Jesus has called us to with both hands! M:Powered is an amazing time for young people to build great friendships with each other and have lots of fun and this week was no exception. From late night bonfires to pigeons sneaking into dorm rooms, we all left the week with plenty of stories to tell! God is so faithful to meet with us time and time again and it’s exciting to see young people making radical choices to pursue God in their lives!
Thank you for your continued support,
The M:Powered Team
