Church2 The Christian Summer Festival Survival Guide

Summer’s here, the schools are out, and now that we’ve finally got all that sporting agony and ecstasy out the way, we can finally crack on with Summer Festival time. Whether you’re heading north, south, east or west, and whether this is your first or fortieth time, there are a few things to keep in mind…

Before you leave, check your camping equipment thoroughly


Setting up your camp can be tricky. Make sure you allocated jobs well


Remember that when you’re camping, you’ve got to let nature be boss

Make sure you pitch your tent somewhere easy to find

 

If some people find the camping a bit tough, get them back on track with some group bonding


When you finally get to your first meeting, get ready for some excellent teaching

Get ready to dance

And get ready for worship sessions that are so long you’ll forget how old you are

Don’t drink after 10pm because…

But expect to wake up every day feeling refreshed and ready to go

As the festival progresses, let the drummer have a special moment

 

And look out for the moment someone in the band pulls out the lick they’ve been holding back for ages

via GIPHY

  

Most of all, be prepared to not want to leave.
