Beach Mission 2021
1st – 7th August
Not long to go now until this year’s Beach Mission!
The uncertainties and border restrictions mean that things will be scaled back a bit, but we are planning to include lots of favourite Beach Mission activities for all ages (0-17s).
We've had a great response for this year's Beach Mission with lots of children and young people now registered. Sadly this means that we've had to close bookings because we don't have enough team members to take any more children.
Having said that, there is no limit to the number of families with 0-4 year olds who can come, because they need to have a parent or carer with them. And we can also take a lot more secondary aged young people, but only at our evening sessions when extra team members will be available.
If you would like to register a child who is not at school yet for our afternoon session, or a secondary aged child (for evenings only), please send a message via the contact form, giving the names and ages of the child(ren).
Opening Event – Sunday 1st August – more information to follow.
Daily sessions in four age groups:
Closing Event – Saturday 7th August – more information to follow.
What is Beach Mission?
The Port St Mary SU Beach Mission was founded in 1901 and is a well-established event with excellent support from local authorities and churches. Since the decline of tourism in the area, the mission now works almost entirely with local children and young people, some of whom travel from other parts of the island. Around 250 children and young people attend daily to enjoy activities including games, crafts, drama, interactive Bible teaching, music and outings.
Virtually Beach Mission
In 2020, Beach Mission happened virtually. We would like to keep the sessions live for people to watch.
