Engage has the great privilege to partner with Summer Madness and Street Reach in Northern Ireland. This team will begin the experience by spending the first two days in the capital city of Belfast to learn more about the culture and history of the country in relation to faith and the church. After this important cultural learning, the team will then attend and participate in the Summer Madness festival, a huge gathering of youth from all over Northern Ireland who worship and learn together. Engage will join up with a few local youth groups to participate together
and build relationships. The festival will consist of times of worship with national bands and speakers, youth focused workshops, and other fun activities throughout the day. After the four-night festival, the team will be sent out (along with the other local youth groups) for a four-day service experience called Street Reach. During Street Reach the team will engage in service experiences in a local community through a variety of ways (street and park clean-up, possible kids camps, gardening/yard work, etc). Northern Ireland is a beautiful country with rich history and culture. Through this opportunity with Engage, you’ll will get to worship and serve alongside other young people in Ireland and see how the Spirit is moving through this country.
