Anna and Chris Hembury link letter no. 27 June 2019

Three travelling themes from this spring bank holiday half-term…

Pilgrimage

Monday: I (Anna) took the opportunity to spend the day on Holy Island on my way back from visiting friends in Northumbria. It is a place that always invites me to slow down and tune in to some other frequency, to adjust my bandwidth, rid the background crackle and connect with God. It was a perfect time to come, the weather clear and still after the previous day of rain and then a drizzly dawn.

Young people love coming to our summer camp (www. frontiercamps.com). There are children and teenagers there from Scotland, Merseyside, Bath and of course Hull. All are invited into and held in an accepting, life-expanding, loving community centred around Jesus. It is a profoundly powerful experience of another possible world, the kingdom of God, and people rarely want to check out. So when the young people turn 14 and can no longer come as campers, they are keen to come in any capacity to “help”, rashly deciding they are up for a week of 7am morning meetings and prayers, hard graft, potato peeling and pot washing. No problem. All evidence to the contrary during their other 51 weeks at home should not be taken into account! And rightly so. It is, after all, another possible world.

Our summer was full, including taking 28 children and young people away on a summer camp, helping staff the CMS tent at Greenbelt as well as organising two creative workshops and two all-age worship services at the festival. It was energising to be so much a part of things where we had the freedom and privilege of sharing in people’s faith journeys in ways where God clearly had the platform. Necessary spaces, much like church in that regard. We had opportunities to see awkward young people, who had only ever been in a church for our breakfast club, singing “Oh happy day!” with hearts open and in complete abandon.

Much of our structured work follows the school year, so this spring term has been short and mostly marked by winter! We are fortunate in Hull to be so akin to paradise that we were spared all the hardship the recent harsh weather brought and got to enjoy just enough of the snow to find it charming!
