Lifepath helps school children explore the Christian faith in fun and exciting ways 

At the end of June, almost 500 children from local primary schools will descend on Brinkburn Priory in Northumberland. They will be there to take part in Lifepath – a Scripture Union event run by local Christians – that aims to help the children explore the Christian faith in fun and exciting ways. Now in its eighth year, Lifepath Brinkburn has become a regular fixture in the calendar for many of the schools. This year Lifepath Brinkburn runs from Monday 25 to Friday 29 June. 

Workshop at Lifepath Brinkburn

Much still to do

The core team, consisting of members of local churches and Christian organisations, have been meeting since January to plan the event. The theme this year is going to be based around the life of St Cuthbert and the place that the Bible had in his life. The children will also explore why the Bible is important to Christians today.

Many things have already been sorted out (booking portable toilets, tables, chairs, writing scripts and planning the programme), but there is still much to do. Each day the children will take part in four workshops and the workshop leaders are busy planning these, sourcing equipment and preparing props. 

Lifepath could not take place without a fantastic team of volunteers. They take on the roles of Pilgrim Guides (small group leaders), workshop leaders or support team.
