Newday. You may have heard the name mentioned a few times at Redeemer recently, but what is Newday? Well, to summarise, Newday is a week long festival aimed at young people between the age of 11 and 19, which aims to bring people together from across the UK and Europe to learn about and worship God! It has been running every year since 2004 and this year it starts on the 29th of July and finishes on the 3rd of August, with everyone returning home on the 4th. We at Redeemer know that it’s an amazing opportunity for young people to take the next step in their relationship with Jesus, and that’s why we would love you to join us!
So what does a standard day look like at Newday? Well you’ll wake up, grab a shower (not optional, you’ll be spending a lot of time around other people….) and some breakfast. Then there is a morning worship meeting which is aimed at specific age groups, followed by short talks on a range of topics relevant to what’s going on in your life! After lunch together in the afternoon there’s time to chill, hang out at one of the cafes, join in with one of the sports competitions, listen to some live music, there’s even inflatables….Whatever you’re in the mood for, there’s something for everyone! Then, dinner is served! After dinner is the main event, a worship meeting with everyone on site in attendance, over 7000 people worshipping God together and hearing great biblical teaching! After the evening meeting there’s some more time to chill and enjoy the concourse, where all the action is, or if you would prefer a chilled evening there’s hot chocolate available in the Redeemer marquee! Then it’s time to turn in for a good night’s sleep before we do it all over again the next day!
You might be thinking, this sounds loads of fun, but I’m not a young person, how can I get involved? Well there is still opportunity for you to do so, we are still looking for a few people to help us serve the event as Zone Hosts! Hannah Kinning is running the team, made up of people from Redeemer, who together will be hosting the Purple Zone this year, looking after all the churches camping on that zone and making sure their young people have a fun and safe experience at Newday 2019! There is also an opportunity to come and help with our Redeemer catering, helping to cook the meals for our young people, youth leaders and zone hosts. If you’re interested in either of these serving opportunities then look out for Hannah or Toby on a Sunday morning, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
