Sheringham BeachLife family outreach returns

Plans are being finalized for this years BeachLife activity week on Sheringham clifftops and beach at the end of August, and the week promises to be enormous fun for the whole family. Tony Rothe reports.

BeachLife is organised by the churches in Sheringham, and has been running the free summer activity weeks since 2012, as well as indoor beach parties at other times of the year. The aim is to reach out to local children and young people, with four days of games, activities, and teaching, but many holidaymakers also come along to join in the fun.


Each day will start at 10.30am with the Beach Special at the clifftop marquee on the Leas. This will include challenges, drama, music, and even the gunge tank! The young people will then go off to their age-related “Going Deeper” groups to find out more about that day’s theme, which this year will be a series called “Meeting Jesus”.


The Tuesday afternoon will comprise of a Treasure Trail around the town and sea front, followed by family and youth quizzes in the evening. Giant inflatables will fill the Leas on the Wednesday afternoon, and the “egg parachute” challenge will also return to challenge the young people’s ingenuity and creativity.


The tide will be low on Thursday afternoon for beach games and sports, but as it comes racing in later in the afternoon, the family groups engage in the tide fight to see whose flag can withstand the waves the longest! The “Sheropoly” youth trail around Sheringham will take place in the evening, starting from Lighthouse Community Church.


Friday will start with the Going Deeper groups, then everyone will gather at the Leas for a grand family picnic and Beach Special finale.     


beachlifelogo 349 ARPete Skivington, organiser, said “This is a great opportunity for the churches in Sheringham to get together to provide an exciting fun-packed week for local families and young people, as well as the holidaymakers who come along and join in. In the midst of all the activities, we want the youngsters to engage with Jesus, and realise how He can transform their lives”


Sheringham BeachLife will run from Tuesday 29 August to Friday 1 September. Registration each day will be from 10.15am at the marquee on The Leas, NR26 8LG.
