Thrive Youth Weekend Away

Each Spring, Thrive organises a youth weekend away for local churches.  The purpose of the weekend is to gather youth groups from across Warwickshire together to worship God, build friendships and have fun!

What is it?

It’s called BaseCamp because we all need to retreat back to God’s base, to learn more about him, how to live for Jesus and to live life well by his Spirit.

Who’s it for?
