Many thanks to all who helped set up and run Abbey Skate 2020 – and to all who came along to take part!
It was a wonderful occasion as volunteers from the church family joined with Phil Williams and his team from Christian Surfers and Skaters UK to transform our inspiring 12th century former Benedictine abbey into a 21st century skate park during the spring half-term break.
There were sessions for all ages and abilities, and skating, scooters, demos, competitions, music and tuck shop, as well as the Abbey Cafe.
Abbey Skate has been an annual event, a way of showing young people that the Abbey is for them as much as everyone else, and a way of proclaiming Jesus’ words:
“I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)
The 2020 event was wonderful… And we’re hoping and praying that we’ll be able to do it again in 2021! For more information visit us on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
