feedback from 2012
So many Christians in one place… wow you could really feel God's presence… the eloquence and spontaneity of young peoples' prayers… Fantastic event, great layout… Loads of different entertainment…You could feel God's presence amongst the gathered people… the inspiring address of the new moderator… The Holy Spirit certainly touched my heart and reached my soul today… the sense of belonging… the music was fantastic… absolutely brilliant knowing that the church is alive and kicking!... fantastic to see our "Church" in action… Loved messy church… Finding out what's going on in churches by visiting their tents...Feedback from 2012
congregational feedback
…as a church family we had the opportunity to take stock of what God had been doing with us as we gathered together to plan our display. Yes this was a wonderful exercise, however more importantly it gave us the opportunity… to share stories and best of all - have fun, with other Christians from all backgrounds and areas of Scotland - and remind ourselves that despite the obvious challenges our God is very much at work and relevant today. Can’t wait to catch up again next year. (Gillespie)Congregational Feedback
congregational feedback1
Just… to say how much St. Andrew’s Scots Church, Malta, appreciated the opportunity to tell our story at Heart & Soul 2012.  Our tent was extremely busy… able to tell so many people of our… mission project among refugees. It’s made a real difference. Prayer and practical support has increased… we made new friends… and we hope many more congregations will take up this opportunity...Congregational Feedback

Youth Challenge

We are looking for school groups / youth groups / bunches of mates to send in entries in one of the following areas: MUSIC (ACOUSTIC), DANCE, POETRY or DRAMA. The best three in each category will be chosen and invited to attend and perform in the youth tent on the day. This year’s theme is CELTIC CHRISTIANITY, and we are inviting young people to consider the concept of JOURNEYING WITH or TO FIND GOD and what this looks like to them. To enter young people must be of secondary school age.
