Prophetic Ministry appointments
 

Prayer Ministry takes a number of forms at Madness - from MainStage response times to ongoing intercession throughout the festival, and this year we are thrilled to introduce Prophetic Appointments into the mix!

This is not fortune telling or predictions or anything weird like that. This is simply a space where you can retreat from the noise for a few short minutes and be prayed over by a team of gentle and gifted individuals who will sensitively listen for the "still small voice" of God and humbly offer to you what they believe He might be saying.

Sign up is essential to claim a 15 minute appointment.

Remember, if you're under 18, you need to bring an 18+ youth leader with your group.

Navigating Dating
 

Dating is difficult. Not dating (whether through choice or otherwise) is no walk in the park. And it has the potential to be even harder for Christians. So where do we even start?

Lauren Windle, author of Notes On Love: Being Single and Dating in a Marriage Obsessed Church, offers a frank and empathetic reflection on the state of singleness and dating for Christians. She offers a better model for healthy dating and the ways in which we can form community so that someone can be single but never lonely.

Holy Habits - Living each day with the Holy Spirit
 

Life is full of ups and downs but as Christians we can navigate these twists and turns differently. How? Through the Holy Spirit! Sometimes it can be difficult to understand who the Holy Spirit is and why He makes a difference. But as we try and follow Jesus at home, at school, at college, at work, we cannot leave the Holy Spirit on the sidelines! God puts the Holy in holy habits, and the Spirit in spiritual formation. It's the Holy Spirit that turns that holy habits into life-transforming practices. In this seminar, our mainstage speaker, Pippa Baker will help us discover how to let God the Holy Spirit play a major role in our daily lives and experience more intimacy and power as we grow as Christians.

Who you say I am
 

We all want to know who we are. We seek and search and try to find ourselves. We can feel this even more powerfully when we leave school, head to college, start our first job or apprenticeship and strike out on our own for the first time.

Journeys or self-discovery can be helpful things, but what is even more powerful is stopping to ask, “What does God think about me? Who does He say that I am?” In this seminar, our mainstage speaker, Rachel Gardner will help us consider what God teaches us about our identity and worth.

WeareMadlug
 

Madlug was founded in 2015 by Dave Linton. He was heartbroken when he learned that most children in care have their belongings moved in a bin bag. In that moment, Dave set out to do something about it. With £480, he started Madlug and came up with our ‘Buy one, Wear one, Help one’ approach. With every bag purchased, a pack-away travel bag goes to a child in care. Come and be inspired as we hear more from Dave the founder of Madlug.

Reading the Bible for all it's worth
 

Routine - a boring word that suggests a boring life. But if you get this routine right then your life will never be the same.

What does a regular Bible reading routine look like for the average, overwrought, time-strapped believer who doesn't have a degree in Middle Eastern languages or first century history?

Help, I'm leaving school!
 

Is there a greater time of change than when we’re about to leave school? There are often thousands of questions buzzing around our heads! Like, who am I?  Am I the person my teachers or friends want me to be?  What college or university will I go to next?  What course will I study?  Will I go for a job or an apprenticeship?  What will I do next year?  Where will my friends be?  Where will we go when we’re all far apart?  Where does my faith fit into all of these questions?  We’d love you to join us as the team from The Hub, a chaplaincy serving students in Belfast, helps us to think about what God has to say to us in the midst of all these kinds of questions.
