By David Wood
Where: Chipping Campden
When: Wednesday, March 27 to Sunday, March 31
A former star of the popular 1990s TV show Gladiators will be coming to the Cotswolds later this month to share his Christian faith with young people.
Warren Furman, better known as 'Ace' in the show, will be part of a team visiting a number of schools in the Chipping Campden area and taking part in different events including a special Messy Church and a youth party.
The youth party for 11 to 18-year-olds is being held at Campden Baptist Church on the evening of Friday, March 29, from 7.30pm-9.30pm. Expect plenty of fun with inflatables, an assault course, pizza and a Gladiator!
On the Saturday afternoon, March 30, at Chipping Campden School from 2pm-3.30pm, Ace will be the star turn at a Messy Church afternoon which will include crafts, inflatables and a pop-up ice cream parlour. There is no charge and again everyone is welcome.
Campden Baptist Church is organising a series of special invitational events during the five-day 'Turning Point' outreach from March 27-31, which is being led by Roger Simpson, who works for the Archbishop of York, and his team, including Ace.
As well as taking part in school assemblies and lessons, the team will be joining various church groups and working with its 'Connect' group around Chipping Campden.
On Thursday, March 28, there will be an evening at Campden Baptist Church with Tom Simpson entitled 'Robots, Our Masters?' looking at the challenges and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence from a Christian perspective. Tom is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Public Policy at the University of Oxford and a former Royal Marines Commando. All are welcome at this free event.
Saturday evening will see a free of charge 'Soul in Campden' musical event with international singer Rob Short in the church building on the High Street.
Turning Point will culminate with a special morning service at Chipping Campden School on Sunday, March 31, which will start with a Big Breakfast from 9.45am, and a Café Church from 6.30pm in the High Street church building.
The five days of special events are being held in the run-up to Campden Baptist Church's 50th consecutive Alpha Course, which starts on Thursday, May 2.
