What a pleasure it was to welcome over 200 young folks and volunteers back to Smithton on October 1st for the Big Free Rally 2022! The last time we held the Big Free Rally in person was back in 2019. We don’t know about you, but we sure missed seeing all your smiling faces! Despite some concerning weather forecasts, we were delighted that a bus load of young people and helpers made it safely across the Minch, with more buses travelling from Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Perth. Some keen campers even took the ferry a day early to ensure they didn’t miss out!
Our wonderful hosts Sheona Glass and Euan MacDonald kept us entertained and informed throughout the day. The Rev. Ben Fiddian helped us all to think about ‘Being Real’. And Laura MacGillivray, Ishbel Murray and their wonderful praise band, ensured there was some spectacular singing. Hearing over 200 young people praise God together was amazing!
It was a day of fun and games, lots of laughter, and high-spirits. We thoroughly enjoyed catching up with friends made over the summer and making some new friends too. Hopefully we’ll see lots of you at camp next summer… 😉
