Spend a magical weekend with friends as we embark on a journey with God.
Through drama, crafts and games, participants connect the hero’s story to Bible stories. In an engaging set of experiences, mirroring some of Harry’s, you will explore issues of identity, alliances, team work, spiritual gifts, life’s direction, temptations, moral choices, courage and faith.

How does God fit into Harry Potter?
Very well actually! The theme we are focusing on is kindness and love. God loves all of us and wants us to love others in the same way. Everyone we meet has unique and wonderful gifts and although they may appear very different from us, God calls us to embrace these differences and experience all the magic that others have to offer. Similarly, Harry will travel to a new wizarding school where he will experience new ideas and people. With Gods help he will see the beauty and wonder of all things new and different and will learn to share God’s love with everyone.
