On Saturday 13th September, a one-day Sikh camp was held at Ipswich Gurdwara (Suffolk, England). The main theme of this camp was to provide the Sikh youth and local Sangat with ample knowledge about their identity, history and what they can do day to day to bring Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji to the centre of their lives. The local Sangat were very friendly and welcoming. The Sangat had a thirst for Sikhi and yearned to find out more about Gurmat. This was very inspiring to see. May Guru Sahib keep the youth and the Sangat in Chardi Kalaa and bless them with Gursikhi, Naam, and Seva.
