Refuel Lite 21, a family friendly Scottish Christian festival, 19th-23rd July 2021
Can you imagine what it might be like to come together safely this summer, to worship with other brothers and sisters in Christ in the beautiful setting of the Morayshire Coast sharing times of ministry, community, worship, encounter, presence and connection?
Refuel is a summer family festival in the grounds of Gordon Castle Estate, in the Scottish Highlands from Monday 19 to Friday 23 July 2021. There will be worship, cafés, ministries and pop-up prayer stations. Optional activities are available across the region on the preceding Monday and Tuesday.
The main worship will be outdoors and led from an open sided stage where folks can control their proximity to others, sitting on the lawn or near various large screens throughout the grounds where the worship stage will be beamed to. Confirmed speakers include Bruxey Cavey, author and pastor from Canada, Fred Drummond, Director of Evangelical Alliance and Yinka Oyekan, President of the Baptist Union, pastor and author.
All under 16’s can attend FREE and although they cannot offer the normal children’s ministry as in previous years there will be activities and ministries offering outdoor experiences for the over 8’s (e.g. Archery, Bushcraft, Canoeing, Kayaking, Mountain Biking and team games – requires payment, but will be subsidised).
For 12–18-year-olds, there will be a Refuel Youth event of camping, worship, teaching and mayhem, run by The Message Trust and DNA. The Youth event costs £60 for the 3 days and includes space in a campsite and some additional activities such as kayaking, mountain biking, archery paddle boarding. All under 18s must have a responsible adult onsite during the event and 12-year-olds must have completed their first year at High School.
Camping will need to be booked at local campsites but caravans and motorhomes can park in the estate. The cost for adults is £199 for the three days and Day tickets of £66/day are available too. If Refuel has to be cancelled refunds will be made.
