More than 130 Young people aged 10 – 19 gathered in Durham Cathedral on Sunday 25th March for The Pulse. The event, now in its eighth iteration since it was launched in 2016, gathers Church Youth Groups together to share fun and worship.
The evening saw the launch of the ‘Growing Young Leaders’ worship band and also welcomed special guest Warren Furman, better know as TV’s Gladiator ACE.
Warren, now working with youth across the Northern Province of the Church of England, gave his own testimony on how the trappings of fame and fortune left him empty of any spiritual substance and ultimately lead him to faith four years ago.
The evening saw each youth group take on the challenge of being gladiators in a jousting tournament and ultimately led to organiser Andy Harris ACE for the title. Sadly Andy couldn’t match ACE’s strength, but all ended with both laughing and worshipping together.
As well as the jousting and worship, several young people set up prayer stations allowing those attending to address speak to God in very different ways including posting a note, writing and hanging prayers on a tree.
