CU!2018 – Day 1

Well we are off and running! It’s been a great start!

Despite some practical issues (like the lack of internet – hence the delay to this post!!) we are having a great time

Our Cast battled with trains and roads to get here and have all unpacks and settled in! We are quickly learning our way around the site and working out the best way to run CU! here.

The weather has been … a bit different to the last few weeks ! But thankfully the site isn’t quite as large as our old site so we are not getting too wet if its raining when we are moving around.

Our kitchen team are doing a heroic job of cooking together and for us for the 1st time! Especially as they are in a kitchen non of us have used before … !

We had great fun in the welcome game playing loads of games together in our groups. We came up with a team chant – match the Crew to each of their interesting facts and of course moving smarties around with just straws!

Yesterday in the evening meeting we looked at Abram and Sarai’s journey. Alex and Anya took us on a journey around parts of the site – building alters at the various locations of the story. We then arrived at the theatre for our final destination and final alter build. Jenny and the band led us in a great time of sung worship and we spent some time thinking about about our place in the story and where we wanted to go this week. Accompanied by the beautiful “Doing A New Thing” by the Bright Expression (Ex Crew members at CU!)

Points for Prayer

1 – Weather – the rain is “refreshing” but being damp all week does put a dampener on things!

2 – Settling In – Prayer for the Cast and Crew as we settle into the holiday, the site and with relationships with each other.

3 – The Site – We have some final outstanding issues we could do with resolving to make sure we can have a great time this week.

4 – The Kitchen – We have a great team but its obviously an exhausting and stressful job – so prayers for energy, rest and wisdom would be great.

Thanks for your continued support.
