In the October/November 2015 issue of Free:
CHANGE THE FUTURE
Boring, dull, safe, ordinary − is that what your friends think being a Christian is like? Would you like to challenge them about that − show them that your life is full of faith and adventure? Matt Summerfield explains how you can live in a way that will change their minds.
LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD
Summer camp lasts a week, and then it’s over. Back in the real world the feel-good factor disappears faster than a ride at Alton Towers. So, how can you get the most out of camp and then take all you’ve learned into post-camp life? Free Church camp leaders Ruth Walker and Susan Maclean explain how to cope with coming down from that ‘camp high’.
FAITH. FOCUS. FINISH.
So, there you are, running in the Olympics and you break your leg … What do you do next? Stuart Weir spoke to American athlete Manteo Mitchell, who will tell you!
What happens when life isn’t working out the way you’d hoped? Who do you turn to? Andy Robertson wants you to meet The God You Can Trust.
A SINGER AND HIS SONGS

FAR FROM HOME
Crocodiles and capsized kayaks, church and Chichewa ... In the second part of his interview for Free, Michael Stone looks back on an amazing time in The Warm Heart of Africa.
WHEN I WAS A STRANGER
According to Tearfund, four million Syrian refugees have fled their homeland. That’s roughly the equivalent of every person in Scotland who doesn’t live in Glasgow leaving the country. Free has a few suggestions about how you can help.
Remember that Facebook challenge? No, not the one with ice and buckets, the other one − the one involving seven favourite Bible verses. Chris Nicolson gave it a go.
