Mission United Faith In Life

MUFIL CAMPING

After much thought and prayer, we have some exciting news for Mission United Faith In Life. We have decided to run small socially distant one-night residentials in the summer.

 

We’d love you to join the MUFIL gathering in July for a small group overnight camp.

 

What we hope to do?

Our hope is to gather small groups of young people on the weekend of 16th July at Bramhope Scout Centre. We have pencilled in a booking with the scout centre for young people and their leaders to camp in the MUFIL pop up single person tents which we will provide. We want to create a fun, safe, socially distant residential where young people can come together to enjoy the camping experience, encounter God and make memories together.
 
We are thinking through all the details to make this fun and safe and a great time for young people who have missed the camping summer experience. There’ll be hot chocolates, a campfire, outdoor food, games, activities and throughout our time together we’ll be exploring faith in Jesus and taking time to encounter God. We would love you and your group to join us!

 

We have pencilled this in for the end of the summer term, when we hope the government road map will allow us to gather together in a safe way. All food and activities will be provided and this will be a great marker moment for groups after what has been a really difficult time for both them and us in doing activities together and building community!

What we hope to do?

There will be more details to follow but the plan is to have a group of between 30 and 60 join us on Friday evening until Saturday afternoon and then a possible further 30 to 60 join us from Saturday evening until Sunday afternoon.

Tickets will be £25, £20 if you pay the deposit (details outlined below)

All meals, activities and tents will be included within the price. You don’t need to source camping equipment other than a sleeping bag and perhaps a camping mat/ air bed for each person in your group.

We plan to have loads of fun together, everything will be fully risk assessed and we will pay close attention to all guidance given by the government and the National Youth Agency.

We will make sure that we have smaller groups for meals and activities so that we can do our very best to ensure that distancing and covid secure measures are adhered to.

We are excited to have lots of fun activities in the pipeline.

What next?

If this is something you would like to take part in, we would love you to secure your place by paying a deposit on the Rock Solid booking site. We need people to do this, so that we know there is a real interest for the gathering. We have to pay the full cost to the site by mid-April and we cannot do this without knowing that we’ll be joined by some of you in the summer.

 

We are asking groups to pay a £50 deposit. This deposit is non-refundable unless the site cancels us due to covid (or any other reason). However, it will be deducted from the price of your ticket so you won’t be out of pocket. As an extra incentive, any group that pays the £50 deposit will be able to have their tickets at a discounted rate. This will be £20 per person instead of paying the full rate of £25.

 

We need deposits to be booked on this link by Wednesday 14th April at the very latest. If we don’t have sufficient interest on this date, we would need to postpone this type of gathering as we are committing around £1000 for this gathering to take place.

 

Please have a think and pray and we hope you are excited by this opportunity to gather safely together. When you have done this, we would love you to confirm that your group will be joining us by paying your deposit. We will then open up the ticket site to book individual tickets in April.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we would love to chat these through with you.

Throwback to Februarys online gathering - Ryan Teaching:

In this teaching you can hear Ryan and Ben exploring the topic of creativity and what it means to live in relationship with Jesus and his gift of creativity that comes when we have a living relationship with God.

What is Mission United Faith In Life?

We are a group of youth leaders from across Leeds and Bradford who gather young people three times a year (two residentials and one evening). Our vision is to help young people see the importance of knowing who Jesus is, unite together in times of worship, mission activities and teaching times to explore their identity in Christ and God’s plans for them. We have lot and lots of fun in the times we meet. Click the video to hear more.

Since our gatherings began in 2012 we have seen over 800 young people take part and we are excited to see what God has in store in the future. We meet three times a year in February, July and October.

Who are MUFIL Gathering open to?

If you work with secondary age young people (regardless of where they are in their faith journey), you are invited to bring them along to any of the MUFIL gatherings. Our gatherings will offer your group the chance to meet young people from across Leeds and Bradford, explore faith, be encouraged to live for Jesus and take part in mission activities as well as have lots of laughs along the way!

Why do we Arrange MUFIL Gatherings?​

Youth leaders we are in partnership with are passionate about working together to create opportunities to inspire and equip young people both within their everyday life and beyond the local church. They are committed to becoming part of a united movement which looks to help young people explore and rely on Jesus, learn a biblical understanding of missional living and encounter Jesus through worship and social action.
