Our year 12 Religious Studies students attended the Catholic Youth Ministry Foundation Flame Congress at SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday 2 March 2019.  Flame is the largest Catholic youth event in England and Wales. 8,000 young people filled the arena for a day of prayer, adoration, catechesis, reflection, celebration and praise.

The theme was Significance’ and the event explored the deep Catholic Truth of our being; that we are ‘God’s work of art’ (Eph 2:10) and we can only ever really understand ourselves in relationship with Him. 

Speakers included Archbishop Eamon Martin, Primate of All Ireland.  Other speakers included Robert Madu, a Gospel preacher from the US, rapper Guvna B  and Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales will speak to the young people. Music and worship will be led by award-winning worship leader, Tim Hughes, who has written worship songs including Here I Am to Worship, Happy Day, The Way and Hope & Glory.
