    Life to the Max

    (LTTM) is a unique event that supports children of clergy aged 11-18 years, providing time and space for young people to meet and share their experiences.

    With glorious weather and good-sized waves the young people enjoyed the Devon coast: surfing, kayaking, climbing and coasteering. There were so many highlights this year, including a nostalgic sing-along on the Saturday night as the group watched

    with spontaneous applause at the end. Who needs

    Frozen

    ?!

    This is what a couple of the young people said about the weekend:

    “I wanted to thank you again for the most incredible weekend! I enjoyed this year the most and am already counting the days until next year!”

    “Thanks for a fantastic seven years at LTTM. I have looked forward to coming every year and I will really miss it.”

    Over the past few years a number of regular LTTMers who have moved on have commented how much they will miss LTTM. Because of this, a weekend has also been provisionally booked at St George's house on the first weekend of July 2015 for anyone aged 18-25 who has been to LTTM before - as well as any newcomers who have grown up in a clergy household.

    Next year's LLTM will take place 18-20 September 2015.
