Scarborough Regional Day

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!
Especially when the venue’s KFC! (Kingdom Faith Church, not the other one)
We do like to hang out with the Scarborough guys,
where the worship band plays and something, something, something…


On the 9th Feb CVM took over Kingdom Faith Church in Scarborough as part of the Cracking the Code tour! Nick Welford and Carl Beech kicked off with some introductions and housekeeping before passing the ball onto the band who led us with some first class worship. Ian Parkinson from New Wine took to the pitch and tackled Code 10: I will use my strength to protect the weak and stand against the abuse of power using Nehemiah as an example.

The guys took a breather in The Hub which was decked out with Xboxes, an air hockey table and a foosball table. As Half time approached it was onto the seminars with Ian focussing on Code 9: I will lead as He would lead and Carl on Code 5: I will look away from the gutter, but be prepared to pull people out of it. The whistle blew for half time and the guys helped themselves to soup and sandwiches. After re-energising it was back into seminars as Ian and Carl were substituted and Tania Bright Cook and Ben Harding joined the game. Tania spoke very honestly and openly about how the sexualised culture we live in today affects women and challenged her brothers to stand up and fight it! Whilst Ben led a seminar on Code 3: I will unashamedly make Him known through my actions and words discussing how we can share Jesus in all the aspects of our daily lives.

After another short break Carl picked up the pace, looking at Code 12: If I fail I will not give up because He never gives up on me giving an account of how God had worked through a few tough situations in his life. We had some more worship from the band which was followed by a Q&A session where Carl, Ben and Nick advised the guys about how to tell more men about Jesus. We finished off the day with a few more songs from the band before packing down and setting off home. It was a cracking day and we are all looking forward to the next one!
