This July Acorncamps is organising a single joint camp for the Hungarian churches we partner with.
Teenagers will come from more than 10 churches across the protestant denominations to join with their leaders and an experienced team of 26 youth leaders from the UK. Our aim is at least fourfold:
We have designed the programme to give maximum opportunity for leaders and teenagers to hear and learn more about the God we serve, and his Son the Lord Jesus Christ. A packed programme will include time for morning devotions, evening talks led by Hungarian pastors, seminars covering everything from porn to self-image, relationships, sharing your faith and morning talks. The morning sessions will take us through chapters 2-4 of John’s incredible gospel. We will ‘meet’ with Jesus at a wedding, in the temple, talking with Nicodemus, a Samaritan woman and a royal official. Our prayer is that some kids will come to ‘meet’ Jesus for the first time and many others will be strengthened in following him.
Of course not all the team are strictly English, but for the Hungarians the opportunity to meet the team of native English speakers is exciting. The team is energetic, fun, experienced at working with youth and have a passion for loving Jesus and making him known. For a good number of teenagers it is the language element that attracts them to the camp. The opportunity to practice with ‘genuine’ native-speakers. We want to make the most of this opportunity, so please pray for those who come because of this to go home having found more than they bargained for.
Hungarian Christian youth, whilst being in a better situation spiritually than those in the UK, are still hugely in the minority. It’s not easy to stand up for Jesus in secondary schools. We hope this summer will encourage the faith of 100 plus teenagers and help them to realise they are not alone. We pray that deep relationships will be formed and also that gospel priorities, and not denominational differences, would become more important in their lives.
We hope this gives you a small insight into our summer adventure. We are very aware of many things that could go wrong with bringing people together from many churches, backgrounds, and traditions. Please pray with us that God would be glorified, Christ lifted up and his people encouraged…
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and prayer.
Isten áldjon! (God bless you!)
