So I'm at Newday, me and about 7000 other people. We're in Norfolk at the showground for the first time and the site seems pretty good. I've a couple of roles this year, firstly to make sure all the amazing guys from NSCC have a great time and secondly I'm on the communications team. I'm in charge of press releases and stuff like that. I've the very exciting privilege of being on BBC Radio Norfolk only it's at 7.30am on Sunday morning. Not so exciting. They've a feature on Newday here.
The first meeting was tonight and the noise everyone made at the start was phenomenal. Simon Brading kicked off with worship and Stef Liston preached his heart on forgiveness. Tomorrow night he's onto forgiving others. Stef doesn't really do funny, he doesn't really do clever, he doesn't really do subtle. He just gives it to you straight with all the passion he can muster and that's fine by me.
Here's my day so far:

6.45am: arrive at school and meet others while waiting for coach
