How to get involved?

This is how you get your young people involved with this:

- Advertise the film making workshop to your young people and encourage interested individuals to fill in the application forms (to be handed in by 1st September)

There is a £100 fee per church to be involved in this weekend (on top of any optional extra subsidy you may like to give to lessen the cost to your young people).

What are the churches / young people paying for?

The costs are split between general expenses and paying the artists involved in the weekend. We believe this is a great opportunity to encourage our young people to develop in their creativity, while learning how their creative gifts can be used to build the Kingdom of God.
