“There’s a real buzz happening about Intents Festival 2014,” said organiser Adam Jackson
. “Each year the event has grown and grown we are excited by this as we really love the ‘Small Is Beautiful’ thing that the farm and Intents has going on.
“This year we will probably reach our limit for people, as there has been a lot of early excitement and last year was just brilliant."
Youth groups camp in the fields surrounding a barn in which there are evening meetings including worship with a band led by the Fountain Network’s Phillip Starling
. During the day there are lots of seminars that young people can choose from depending on where they feel they are at with God – anything from “How and Why should I read the Bible” to “Sex and Relationships”, “Prophetic Evangelism” and “Overseas Mission”.
Between seminar slots are various game times, hosted by the fantastic ‘Friendship Society Circus
’, these games involve probably the biggest water fight in Norfolk, wide games involving stealth, tractors and smoke bombs, a Hunger games themed Nerf Arena and loads more.
Alongside that there are craft workshops such as clothing upcycling, eco shelter building and candle making to name a few, or if you just want to take some time out, there’s the famous Intents café and salon.
Each activity and seminar is hosted in a very interesting venues around the farm. There’s the Georgian barn, a London double-decker bus (Which is also a café), a tipi, an Iron Age round house and a Mongolian yurt.
The event is fully catered for and is designed to both make it easy for local youth leaders to bring their youth groups, and also to be able to make space to listen and talk to the young people about the things God is speaking to them about without needing to worry about organising meals or entertainment.
Intents is happening from May 23 – 26, 2014 and costs just £3
7 and is aimed at year 6 and high school age kids. Day passes will also be available this year for anyone who wants to come visit.
