Soul Survivor Scotland ran from 21st – 25th July at Lendrick Muir, near Kinross. There were around 1400 young people attending the event over the 5 days, including over 400 young people from our Baptist family of churches. Our Union hosted a camp of 30 young people, which was an exciting new venture for us.
The days consisted of main tent worship sessions, seminars, activities, sports, making friends, eating food (occasionally healthy) and, for most, finding a time when the showers were quiet for a wash! It was full of joy, laughter, friendship and profound encounters with Jesus.
Within the BUS group several young people gave their life to Jesus for the first time, and for the majority of them it was an experience that really encouraged and deepened their own faith.
It was the first time that we have hosted a camp, the aim of which is to make attending Soul Survivor a lot easier providing accommodation and catering for the groups. Our hope is to run this camp next summer and we would hope that any churches within our network that would like young people aged 14-17 to attend, could make use of this option.
