Flame 2 BS

Flame 2

When we got to Wembley, I was amazed at how big it was outside; there were loads of people all really excited. Inside was even better; we could see the stage all set up ready to go.

Flame 2

When we got to Wembley, I was amazed at how big it was outside; there were loads of people all really excited. Inside was even better; we could see the stage all set up ready to go.

 It began with a dance to Ellie Goulding’s “Burn” and our presenters introduced themselves. In the first half we heard Matt Redman sing-which was awesome. We also had a talk by Cardinal Chito. He was very interesting to listen to and he got everyone involved, we had to text someone (all at the same time) ‘Blessed are the Merciful’.

During our lunch break we got to go and have a look around, Josie and I went and joined in with a game and we got talking to someone from Savio house, it was really interesting to hear about his faith and time at Savio house. I also met some old friends there which was really nice.

After lunch we went back inside and heard form more speakers and loads more fantastic singing from Matt Redman. The final thing we did was Adoration. Adoration with 8,000 people was very special and inspiring.

I really enjoyed the day and have learnt and taken away many things. One in particular is from Cardinal Chito: “Where there is mercy, there is joy”.
