ACORNCAMPS aims to support churches in Hungary with their youth work – both helping them reach out to non-Christian teenagers through evangelistic camps and also by offering biblically-based training and resources to local youth leaders.
Anna has a particular interest in training and has been instrumental in forming and running the camp training days in Budapest.
Anna has a love for teaching the Bible that has grown through completing the London Cornhill training course. For six years she was teaching and leading her local church’s 11-14’s youth group. This, together with helping on youth camps for 15-18 year olds and occasional student work, has fuelled her love for young people and given her experiences to use and share.
Anna writes, ‘I want to help young people know and love Jesus more through these camps and resources we can offer to the churches we work alongside. Hungary is the country he has taken me to and given me unique experiences in and the need and opportunities there are ones that he has persuaded me I can be part of.’

For a number of reasons recently I’ve been reflecting on how it’s so tempting to make the Bible say what we want it to.
Maybe I read it straight, without considering the context, forget there was an author with original readers and an actual purpose for writing, or read it ignoring whether it comes before or after Jesus in history… And somehow then it can initially be a disappointment to discover it wasn’t written for me in my current situation.
That then becomes actually quite freeing… I don’t have to ‘fit’ (or force) my understanding to the passage, or try to imagine what it could mean. It’s exciting knowing that it can be read and understood through paying a bit of attention to certain things. And that it’s not just about me after all is fine, when I realize who it ultimately is about. The LORD is amazing! And we can know it primarily from his word.
