Common Wealth Games Glasgow 2014

Hey Everyone!

We had a really busy but wonderful summer! Glasgow was the host of the 2014 Common Wealth Games. ("like mini Olympics"). Athletes from all around the world came to Glasgow on 23rd July-3rd August. Our church was literally next door to the athletes village. There was a great buzz in the city and we did our best to be part of the games!

We hosted three different teams while the games were on. YWAM team from Brisbaine Australia were with us for three weeks. We also hosted a YWAM breakers team from the Netherlands and FireStarters Youth team.

We decorated peoples houses, organized a week long games in the park for kids, another week of Summer Holiday Club for the kids and a Family BBQ for the whole community.

Outreaches were a great success and we saw many people receive Jesus in their hearts during the outreaches.

Here are few photos!

The Childrens Summer Programme was a great success! Over 100 children came along throughout the prorgramme!
