We are SO excited. We've never done this before but it seems like a great opportunity. Way back on 6th July 2008, we asked Download to meet back together on 6th July 2018 and to answer the question, 'Are you still following Jesus?' It's since become known as the 6-7-8 challenge. That date is coming up,
but we decided to go bigger and gather together everyone who has left Download in the last 10 years for a massive celebration! We've counted 628 leaders and young people but there could be more!!!
So we're relying on all of you to publicise this for us. Encourage people to join this group, get the date in their diaries and say they're going to the event! There will be a cost of some sort, but it won't be much. We'll have food, live music, a short talk, some testimonies. People have even talked about recreating classic moments from the last 10 years! Do post your memories of shaving foam on walls, paint on polished wood floors, SO19 nearly called to reports of a Downloader brandishing a gun out of the window...
Apart from anything else, we're digging out some photos and videos of Download through the years. I have found them already fairly scary and they will be well worth seeing..
