Waiting in Hope: A Look Back at the National Gathering

Two weeks ago (and three months later than originally scheduled), 25 students and SCM staff arrived in Ledbury to reflect on the theme of Waiting in Hope through talks, worship and Lego.

From the moment of my arrival, it was clear we would be having a good time together. Many of the attendees had already arrived, and were playing games outside. This spirit of fun and community continued throughout the weekend, with people playing sports and chatting outside between sessions and in the evenings.
