FF 2001 - 'Unfinished Business'

After last year's shortened festival there was a sense of some 'Unfinished Business' and for that reason took on that theme for FF2001! Firm Foundations 2001 took place over the bank holiday weekend of 25-28th May at Felden Lodge, Hemel Hempstead.

After the success if the previous year, Brigade members again led the Youth Worship. Each morning the Brigade's very own young people, along with guest speaker Jon Burns, explored the theme of this year's youth worship, which was 'ydv8?'.
The All Age Worship / Evening Celebrations were led by Robin Mark and Band, with various speakers including Mike Pilavachi, Eric Delve, Lyndon Bowring, and R.T. Kendall. Both the Youth Worship and All Age Worship times were held in the Big Top.

Over the weekend a variety of seminars and workshops were held. The 'Cornerstone' as well as being the location for the non-alcoholic 'Cornerstone' Cocktail Bar, was also the location of the 'Fringe Stage'. A number of up and coming Christian Bands and Artists, many of them members of The Boys' Brigade or Girls' Brigade performed on the Fringe Stage.
These artists, bands and speakers included: Simon Jones, Nick & Bridget Sheperd, Riding Lights Roughshod, Shine, 'Big' Al Mayfield, Kool Drummings, Decrosser McClouder, Richard Kirby, Adrian Pumphrey, Lounge, Nathan Bennett, Mesmerized, and Sola Harba.

For the young and energetic the 'Dancezone' was a very popular venue. The team from 'Innovation' looked after the 'Dancezone', this year the 'Dancezone' was bigger and better than ever before! With state of the art effects including Co2 canons, lasers, multi-level platforms, intelligent lighting, video production/animations, and a quality selection of the best music from past and present made it the place to be at FF2001!

As well as all this there were a number of activities on offer, including: abseiling, canoeing, fencing, swimming, badminton, bungee run and for the younger at heart a bouncy castle. The Cyberden was open throughout the festival for surfing the web and computer games, and the fabulous OASIS 'Food Tent' open from early till late serving a large variety of food.
