Adventuring with God


Children, young people and families from across the Diocese of Chester flocked to an Outdoor Adventure Day at Brereton Heath on Saturday 13 April. The Diocese partnered with the Oakhanger Project, a Christian based organisation providing a range of outdoor and adventure activities, to welcome 55 people to the day. Activities included canoeing, kayaking and games as well as an adventure around the lake.  

As well as outdoor activities, there was an opportunity for reflection. Graham Bushill, leader of the Oakhanger Project, reflected on teamwork, survival and achieving the impossible with God and others. An atmosphere of excitement and unity filled the day as families and young people came together to enjoy interacting with Christians from different places, to reflect and have new experiences.

The Diocese of Chester has inspiring young generations as one of its priority areas. Jonathan Masters, Youth, Children and Families Missioner for the Diocese of Chester helped organised the day. He said: “The Diocese of Chester is passionate about creating church communities for all generations, accessible to all ages, and encouraging the wonderful sense of family which the Church has historically provided. We believe that the mission of God includes sharing the grace and love of God with all. Working with the Oakhanger Project allows us to do this outside, present in God’s creation.”

Churches are welcome to contact the Oakhanger Project and organise days for their congregations themselves if they would like. There will be another Outdoor Adventure day in September, which will have a focus on canoeing and kayaking. Booking will open soon.
