A year ago in September a community of young adults called ‘Awaken’ was launched to bring anyone between the ages of 18-30 together to drink coffee, enjoy live music and worship.
The origins spring from a group of 6 young adults from 6 different churches across the Taunton area who share a heart to build community for one of the most isolating generations there has been.
Sam Burton, founder of Awaken has recently shared given Tone News an insight to the group as it approaches it’s first anniversary: “A year on we are now seeing over 100 people as part of the community from the Taunton area and around 50 people coming to the events, we are excited about moving into Company Spaces on Bridge Street for our next Awaken Night on Saturday 7th September at 7:30pm.
“We see both church people and non-church people coming to these events to connect as a generation and if you are a young adults we would love to see you at this free event”.
There is always plenty of cake, tea/coffee, music and also take space for hearing from God along with the opportunity to receive personal prayer for anything too and we are all about encouraging this generation to try Jesus”.
To find out more about future events you can follow the Awaken Facebook page and enjoy the pleasure of worship with new and old friends from all over Somerset.
