7-9th July (Friday evening – Sunday lunchtime) at Cliff College in Derbyshire.

Last year saw the pilot of an event called Rise and Shine, which was aimed at young people demonstrating leadership
potential. Due to the success of the event we will be running the event again this summer from  at Cliff College in Derbyshire.

The event will be looking at biblical leadership and how it can be applied in the context of the 21st century. It is open to any young person between the ages of 16 and 23 who have been identified by their churches, circuits or districts as having leadership potential. It will be an informal event to allow for in depth conversation and learning. There will be worship, workshops on effective leadership, open spaces for prayer and discernment, as well as times for fun social activities and games.There are a limited number of spaces for this event, and as we want young people to be able to attend from across the connexion, we are asking circuits to send no more than two young people. The weekend is open to those who attended last year as well as to those new to the event. We want churches, circuits and districts to be intentional in whom they recommend for the event. We are specifically looking to work with young people who show leadership potential, or are eager to apply for leadership positions whether inside or outside of the Church. Due to the specific target audience, this event will not be widely advertised, and so we trust that ministers will highlight this opportunity to their young people.

Food, accommodation and travel between Chesterfield railway station and Cliff College are all covered within the discounted price of £75. Trains to/from Chesterfield, or other transport costs, will
need to be covered separately by the delegate. Young People can be registered onto Rise and Shine at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/rise-shine-2017-tickets-32499684431

Gospel Street - Riding Lights Theatre Comapany

26th September - 9th December 2017

People are out on the street.
Another generation is looking for answers - a rich young career girl, an angry gang leader, a
charming church-goer, misfits, activists, crooked bankers, a surprising refugee and the bloke who
bought himself seriously expensive jewellery. People who stood face to face with Jesus. There are
anecdotes, bust-ups, blogs and posts. It’s a wild ride through issues of life, death and miraculous
street food.

Despite their differences and social divisions, 140 characters want to meet one extraordinary
person. Jesus has arrived on their street and he’s on the lookout for trouble – looking to do
something about it.

Four young people - two women, two men - like the first evangelists, tell the startling story of
what happened, just now, on that street. The result is a powerful mix of theatre, music, comedy
and spoken word.

GOSPEL STREET is a collaboration between award-winning writers, including rapper and hip-hop
artist Testament. Riding Lights is doing what it does best: bringing everyone together to hear some
of the good news with wisdom, laughter, energy and insight.
