Our Vision Statement is simple:
“West Runton Holidays wants to make Jesus known to young people through exciting excellent activity holidays. ”
West Runton Holidays wants to MAKE JESUS KNOWN (Evangelism & Discipleship)
We want to see children and young people discover and know Jesus. To grasp who Jesus is and how Jesus wants to have relationship with us. To talk about and create an environment where children and young people can encounter Jesus is vital to who we are. We want to encourage children and young people who don’t know Jesus to come on our holidays as well – what a great opportunity for them to meet Him, our creator, our provider, our King, friend and Saviour!
But we want more than just a camp experience. We want to see followers of Jesus not just converts, so seek to give them the skills and encouragement to go on with God when camp has finished. Discipleship begins with young people going from having never heard of Jesus, to salvation, going on to be mature followers of Jesus.
We exist to introduce children and young people to Jesus and see them grow and develop into mature disciples, seeing their potential unfold!
West Runton Holidays wants to make Jesus known to YOUNG PEOPLE.
We are an organisation that currently, is focused on young people, from ages 9 up to 21. And we are open to any young people in between those ages, from any background, culture and experience.
We want young people from all over the place to hear about us and want to come on our holidays because we want them to meet and go on with Jesus.
We want young people to be introduced to Jesus because He is the only one who can give them hope. He is the only one who can love them truly. He is the only one who can heal them and give them life and life in all it’s fullness.
West Runton Holidays wants to make Jesus known to young people through exciting EXCELLENT holidays.
From The Message, Col 3:23 says
“Servants do what you are told by your earthly master. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident in that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being ‘Christian’ doesn’t cover up bad work. “
We want to work as if working for the Lord. We run good quality, safe holidays with qualified leaders and team, providing a fully relevant and accessible programme. A real HOLY day, a break from the norm, set apart from everyday life… a holiday!
Everything we do we aim to do well – from the planning through to the delivery and care on our holidays!
As West Runton Holidays, we aim to pursue excellence in all we do.
West Runton Holidays wants to make Jesus known to young people through exciting excellent ADVENTURE and ACTIVITY holidays.
Jesus came, God became flesh so we could better grasp who He is and Jesus invites us to join Him in seeing the Kingdom of God come on earth as it is in heaven. It’s at hand, God’s full rule and reign here on earth, is within our grasp and living like we believe that has to be an adventure!
Life with Jesus is an adventure and we want to provide holidays that have adventure and action in them, to reflect the Kingdom, whether that’s introducing Jesus to someone for the first time, or through exploring more of the Christian faith, through games, canoeing, karting, skiing, sailing…
At West Runton Holidays we love the outdoors and God has given us THE most incredible creation to play in – whether that’s playing crocker on a field, building a model aeroplane, karting around outside, windsurfing on a lake somewhere in Europe, or learning to snowplough in the Swiss Alps – we offer a distinctive brand of holidays and that’s partly because we have a high emphasis on adventure and activity!
One of our unique selling points is that we are small enough to be creatively adventurous and provide fantastic out of the ordinary activities!
So, West Runton Holidays wants to make Jesus known to young people through exciting excellent activity holidays – something it’s been doing for years gone by and we hope will do for years to come.
