Reflections, Scouts' Owns and Promise renewal events can take many forms.

The content of your event will depend on why you are holding the event, who the event is for, the venue and the theme.

You might want to consider using:


Keep your readings short and relevant to keep the audience engaged. Incorporating a variety of different readers, music and activity should ensure all your participants remained interested.

Ideas for readings will be coming soon.


Try mixing old and new, so that everyone participating enjoys singing something. Songs that require everyone to join in work better when everyone knows the song and the words. You could send out the words in advance, or use call and repeat methods during the event. Make sure there is variety in the music chosen. Ensure the music used is inclusive, and not representative of any faith exclusively.

If you wish to use some songs or readings you may need to get permission from the publishers or owners of the copyright. At the bottom of the songs or readings there will be a © symbol and next to that will be the name of who owns the copyright.

You will need to write to them and ask for permission to use their material. There may be a charge for this and the whole process can take a while, so it is best to plan ahead so you are not left waiting for permission, this could hold the whole event up.

Examples of music will be coming soon.
