What is ReLoad?
ReLoad is our programme of events and discipleship for 18-30's. Life can change quickly during this time – university, jobs, relationships and extra responsibilities offer all sorts of excitement, change, temptation, opportunity, challenges and fun. Not surprisingly it can also be the single most spiritually-challenging time of your life and sometimes, we simply just need to re-focus and anchor ourselves back in God’s love. This is so much easier when there’s a whole bunch of other people in the same position, which is why we we run a series of events which aim to encourage, inspire and build you up in your Christian journey in a way that is practical, honest and real.
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts
When we first came up with the idea for a series of weekends, the biggest factor stopping people coming was ….cost! Thanks to some generous supporters of CYE we are able to offer our weekend events at a low price (typically £50) and our other events at very competitive rates. So if it’s just the money stopping you, hopefully this opens the door again. If you're not able to pay the full £50 then please pay whatever you can afford (the £10 deposit is compulsory though)

What will we be doing?
Each event will be slightly different but will always include the following. You can find out more specifics on the booking pages or on the Facebook page/event
Talks – A focal point to any ReLoad weekend is hearing God's word. We will be having 2 main talks during the weekend as well as worship, prayer and discussion time. Our hope and prayer is to make the talks and speakers as relevant, engaging and inspiring as possible so that you can leave CYE spiritually refreshed, challenged and hungry.
Worship – If you play an instrument and would like to be involved in a worship band, let us know. Similarly if you would like to lead the worship for the weekend, we would love to hear from you.
Activities – At CYE this will include water sports, pub trips, walks, bonfire etc. Our Devon trip offers surfing along with the possibility to include coasteering, climbing and sea kayaking. The ski trip obviously involves skiing but also chilling out in the hot tubs, walks in the mountains etc
Food - Lots of it and always tasty. All dietary requirements catered for.
Relax – For lots pf people, catching up with friends and relaxing will be a big part of the weekend. None of the activities are compulsory, so if blasting around the water is not your thing, grab a coffee or head out for a walk and just slow down and re-charge.
SWAGs - On every ReLoad event there will be a bunch of people who are available for prayer, chat, banter, discussion and advice. This is our SWAG team (Sharing Wisdom Across Generations). They're amazing - and you'll love them!
