We had a smaller group this year, but that didnt stop the fun! We also expanded our dwelling area with a new gazebo! made for great fellowship. The weather was fab most of the time as was the location. God moved as He always does and people including our group were blessed and encouraged. All in all another fanstastic year at Soul Survivor, here's to 2014!

2012 was fab, fab and double fab!! Great camping area again, bit muddy in places, but not too far from the main area. Again, another year of making and cementing friendships, with the crazy lovable lot from Glossop (Nr Manchester) and our new found buddies from Verwood in Dorset.

We also had a few of the guys from Cornerstone Hythe URC with us again and had about 35 in our group all in all. Everyone left feeling very blessed by all that God had done and is continuing to do and very blessed to have made new friends. It was also great that Dave had new victims (sorry blessed listeners) for his brilliant jokes!!! Some of the older teens stayed on for even more blessing at Momentum! You could say WE WERE BLESSED!! 2013 is going to be a fun re-union!

Double WOW! What another fantastic Soul Survivor this year! We had a lovely corner of Orange 8 next to some beautiful trees and the M25! Another year of Sunny, Wet, Sunny, Damp, Hot, Cold, Moderate, Cloudy and other weather variables! It was great to have Ollie, Pete, Jess and others from Hythe URC with us and everyone had a fantastic time. Meals were as usual 3 star michelin quality and yet again we were the only group on site of 8000 plus with two full size gas ovens and a fridge!! Our village idiot this year (sorry I meant host) was the wonderful Jon Matthews who did a great job! Worship and teaching seminars were brill and over 400+ gave their lives to Christ during the week. Roll on SS '11 !

WOW! What a fantastic Soul Survivor this year! We had a brilliant spot near the equator on the peaks of mount Pink 6 and apart from the killer wasp's it was the best one yet! The wasps's were'nt the only ones buzzing and stacks of teens gave their hearts to Christ during the week. The worship was awesome as usual and the weather was very "crowded house" (four season's in one day and all that....!) We teamed up again with Matt Lockwood and his posse from Kings Church and had a great time "encouraging" each other! Roll on SS '10!
