We began the evening with sausage rolls, fried potatoes and
beans .It was simple yet delicious and left us with a perfect appetite for some
homemade cake. Yum!
After dinner, at 6:30pm, we headed to the big top for our opening liturgy service; this included some brilliant music from ‘CJM’, a sermon from the vicar of Walsingham, some great performances from the ministry team and a procession to the shrine garden for prayers. At 8:30pm, after tucking into a tasty barbequed sausage or burger, most of us went to the disco while a few went back to our tent to relax.
At 10:30pm, the disco ended and we carefully ran through the pouring rain. We were successful in not slipping over until Eleanor warned Sophia not to trip over the guide ropes, and gave an example of what not to do (she fell over one herself)!!! Most of us were very tired and so once we’d got into our comfy, dry pyjamas we fell asleep straight away. Unfortunately, it was not so dry when we woke up in the morning, as we discovered an array of drips and puddles in our leaky tent!
