Amplify 12-18's at Devoted is shaping up to be a fantastic event for 12-18's. The main focus, as always, is helping you to grow and deepen a real relationship with Jesus - recognising that we're all at different stages in our Christian walk, and allowing God by His Spirit to meet with us where we're at. So, we have:
Morning meetings/seminars on the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with a talk and opportunities for Q&A.
Evening meetings on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with worship led by our Amplify band, various speakers, games, challenges, vidoes, interviews with church leaders / planters / speakers and lots of opportunity for response.
The team is led by Jordan who is part of the leadership team at City Church Lancaster. He moved there from London five years ago in order to study History at Lancaster University. He now works as a Maths teacher, and also the worship and staff office teams at City Church. He's an avid (but very mediocre) sportsman, a musician and an Arsenal supporter...
Amplify is all about Jesus - shouting about Him, encountering His Spirit...join us!
The Amplify cafe - relaunched in 2018 as Cafe 316 is a chilled out cafe in the Pavilion for you to hang out in, catch up with old friends, make new ones and enjoy the activities, food and drinks we have on offer.
We'll be serving mocktails, pik and mix sweets, hot and cold drinks. There's loads to do during the day, and every evening there will be a different event - one night will be the 316 Gig Night, another will be the Glow Stick Party.
Sunday night is our famous Open Mic Night!
If you can sing, do some poetry or even stand up comedy, we want you to showcase your skills.
There will be a lot more, but you will have to come and find out! Our promise to you is that at Devoted you can make your mark and explore more about what your IDENTITY really is!
Team games, chill out time, signature drinks...all at our IDENTITY cafe.

Parenting Children for a Life of Faith
Looking for a book about how to help your children meet and know God?
If you are you should look no further than this excellent book by Rachel Turner. Nurturing children in the Christian faith is a privilege given to all of us whose prime job is to raise children. God’s desire is that our parenting should guide each child to meet and know him, and to live with him every day through to eternity. The basic principle behind the book is that we need to model for our children what it means to be in a relationship with God rather than just equipping them to know about him - helping our children to be God-connected rather than just God-smart. To find out more or to buy this book online click here.
This is a must have read for any parent or those working with children. Rachel's methods are intuitive and child centred. They seem so natural you wonder why you haven't always taken this approach to helping children interact with God. Seeing the wonder on a child's face when they are released in this way is priceless.
