This is the place you'll find all videos and information you need over the weekend.
Ahead of the weekend your youth leader will give you everything you need to join in, including the Zoom links and TaskMasters booklets.

Each session together will involve:
An all together Zoom call, with some quick fire tasks;
A YouTube video message (which you can find here nearer the time);
And Group time using your 'TaskMasters' booklets

Session 1 - 'Taskmasters'
Creative Rice Crispy Cakes
We're missing all the delicious food at Impact this year, so why not bring the taste of Impact to your kitchen?
The Task - shape your rice crispy cake mixture in to the most interesting way you can!! You can complete this task anytime over the weekend or beyond. However, points will be awarded if you submit your photos to us by Sunday mid morning.
Instructions: Melt marshmallow with a bit of butter and stir in rice crispies until you get a very gooey malleable mixture. Once you’ve made the mixture add whatever extra treats you want - melted chocolate 🤤, smarties, sprinkles or even the tears of a unicorn 🦄 and start shaping!
Session 2 - 'Divine Intervention'
Saturday Daytime Tasks
Create a Domino Effect Rally
Using whatever materials you like, create a domino effect (or 'chain reaction') type video. You must incorporate your ping pong ball in at least part of our course. Film your course in action. Submit your videos or photos to us through the links provided on our webpage. If sharing on instagram follow and tag 'nwba youth'.
Take a walk for at least 30 minutes (with a friend is ok), switch off your phone, no headphones or social media and think about these questions:
- What are the things in life that I'm a slave to?
- How can I be free from the things that 'enslave' me?
- What might God want to say to you about those things?
Session 3 - 'The Great Escape'
Saturday Night Tasks
This evening watch the film The Prince of Egypt. If you don't already own the film, you could try finding it on Netflix or YouTube, or perhaps someone with a Netflix subscription might invite you to a 'Netflix party'
We also want you to create a character, backstory and decorate your ping pong ball, you can use any material you want, but you must use the feathers we provided you with.
