Christmas is a time for community, and this was really felt in the Forest of Dean as Sportily hosted a rustic, family-focused campfire and carols event with lots of marshmallows and hot chocolate.
Sportily’s work over the last year meant that they were able to host over 50 people they’ve connected with through their work in local schools, toddler groups, community groups, sports sessions and holiday clubs.
“Our kids get so bored by a normal carol service, they were captivated by this,” shared one attendee.
It was held at the Christian Adventure Centre Viney Hill with family favourite songs, new and old sung into the evening.
“As a minister, it was nice to be able to attend a Christmas service that I could just be and attend,” shared another.
The intimate event even featured an appearance from a professional music artist which was a treat for everyone who attended.
Sportily wanted to say a huge thank you to the local clergy, staff from Viney Hill, and the volunteers from local churches and the Sportily team for making the event such a success.
