2 MILLION STEPS EVENT
On the 20th May 2017, twenty-four of us gathered in faith on a rainy Saturday afternoon for the start of our official 2 Million Steps Event, raising awareness for refugees and praying for peace in Ukraine.
After our rainy lunch we worshipped together and got to know each other over some team challenges – which hilariously involved some people pretending to be toasters and other various machines! The walk itself was beautiful, and although it was 4 miles long, we had 4 'Prayer Stops' where we heard either some more information about the situation in Ukraine, a story, testimony or an activity that we took part in to pray for Ukraine. On completion, we celebrated our brilliant collective total of 170,282 steps by getting round a campfire with bacon butties, more food and toasted marshmallows!
Thank you to David & Simon for leading us in worship, to those at Headlands Adventure Centre for a brilliant venue, to Rach and Beth for helping to prepare the food, to Jon B for some excellent photos and to everyone who came, making the day so much fun!
