The Church of England - - NEWS -

Young people from across Lan­cashire flocked to Black­burn Cathe­dral this past weekend for the largest youth event ever held by the Church in this re­gion; the ‘Sanc­tu­ary: Love Never Ends’ was an all-night lock-in from 7.30pm to 7am. More than 100 young people and around 40 youth lead­ers took part in the event or­ga­nized by the Dioce­san Board of Ed­u­ca­tion, which in­cluded wor­ship, so­cial­iza­tion, cage-foot­ball, a bouncy cas­tle, film-mak­ing, other ac­tiv­i­ties, and an abun­dance of food. The Bishop, the Rt Rev Ju­lian Hen­der­son, led the ini­tial col­lec­tive wor­ship at the start of the evening. Fur­ther­more, all of the young people in at­ten­dance were chal­lenged to plan a way to ex­press God’s love in their own com­mu­nity in the com­ing year as a part of the re­li­gious por­tion of the evening. Groups that took part in the event were from Sk­er­ton, Ap­p­ley Bridge, Chor­ley, Thorn­ton, Freck­le­ton, Shev­ing­ton, Poul­ton, Lytham, Bax­en­den, Burscough, Ac­cring­ton, Lane­side, as well as Lan­caster.
