CONNECTing whilst decorating
01 June 2022 11:45
At Sportily, we're not simply 'all about the sport', ultimately we are seeking to build community.
Our framework for this is our seven spaces model; CONNECT, EAT, EXPLORE, ENCOUNTEER, SERVE, CONTRIBUTE, GROW. Across all our locations we seek to inhabit these spaces throughout our programme.
Just last week there was a great example of our SERVE space in action in Beacon; for the session that week we partnered with the Parish Council to decorate the Pavillion building as a way to serve the community.
In addition to the decorating, Nathan facilitated a space for the young people to take time to wander around the space looking at different pieces of art stuck to the walls. The young people wrote on post-it notes to describe how the pictures made them feel.
Elsewhere we spent time CONNECTing around a campfire, and EATing toasted marshmellows and corn on the cob, whilst EXPLOREing the kind of things that Jesus may have done around a campfire with his friends and family.
