Yes – all the leaders are Christians. There is chance for everyone to get to know about God, and it is expected that you will be happy to participate in all the spiritual programme – worship of God is central to everything we do at Bridgwater. It doesn’t mean you need to be an expert, just willing to give it a go and respect others. Whilst people will share what they think, no-one will tell you what to believe – that’s up to you to decide. We try to make sure that everyone has the most fun possible whilst learning about God.
