AWAKEN Mission trip with Jesus Culture – Romania April 16th – 19th 2020. – POSTPONED
We’re excited to be taking a group of young adults from the West Country to Romania for a short mission trip with Jesus Culture you can find out more here. It’s £300 which includes most of the expenses apart from flights. Message AWAKEN on facebook to book your place on our team. Please let us know if you are coming by Jan 10th 2020.
Our primary focus is to empower & engage young adults across the West Country through worship & community.
We also host a 24/7 prayer room in Taunton and ‘PURSUIT’, both these gatherings are for all ages in the region… we believe an awakening is happening.
On AWAKEN worship nights we’ll provide opportunities to meet God and his family (from all churches both large and small) through worshiping Jesus and praying for each other along with drinking coffee, eating cookies and much more. If you’ve never been to church and you are a young adult you are very welcome to join us for any of our events… we’d love to meet you.
See our upcoming Young Adult AWAKEN events for the next time you can connect, we host something FREE every month: it’s usually a mix of visiting speakers, bands, socials and plenty of space for worship.
