Church Lads' and Church Girls' Brigade summer 2013


undefinedThe 1st Chester and Liverpool Battalion of the Church Lads' and Church Girls' Brigade enjoyed an annual camp in Prestatyn, North Wales, recently. "A great week of fun, faith and fellowship was enjoyed," says Karen Cairns, captain of the brigade's Noctorum company, Wirral.

The former Noctorum captain Pat Carolan also attended.  

Noctorum hosted the camp’s Sunday service, and all the children took part. As well as much fun activity there were devotions every night with bible readings plus a short play.

Captain Karen recounted: “The children went to the Great Orme in Llandudno and also did skiing, tobogganing, snow-boarding and crazy golf. There were games on the beach, a sandcastle-building competition, an evening of bowling, a fancy dress contest and a camp concert.

"On one of the evenings the Revd Sheila Hughes visited camp from Great Sutton, Wirral, and led an open-air communion service."

The brigade is a Church of England youth organisation with roots going back to 1891.
