Youth Ministry

All Saints/St.Marks Youth commenced on January 24th 2014. Most of us got back after a nice Christmas break eager to push forward in 2014. Just 6 of attended the first meeting. Week 2 and 3 saw eleven of us present. The increase in numbers encourages us to be involved much more as a youth in church and church activities.

We spent the last two meetings planning for the year ahead as a youth group as well as active members of our parish.

We have decided to have some fundraising to afford us the opportunity to go on youth outings _ ie. Visit other youth groups, children’s homes etc- we also would like to buy biblical games for the group.

The first fundraiser for this year is a cake and chocolate sale on Sunday 16 February 2014. God willing,we hope to have more fundraisers through out the year.

We also planned each meeting for the year. We hope to have a bible study one week,worship the next,discussions and the last Friday on the month will be game night (game night will be fun but its also another opportunity for us to learn more about the bible).

Currently, a few of us bring snacks and cool drinks for each meeting. Hopefully with funds raised we can buy cool drinks and snacks ourselves.

We look forward to more young people joining the youth. We’ve been blessed with a fun group of people – each one is respected and treated as an equal – in the last five months or so we have become a family.

We look forward to the year ahead and welcome ideas and help from our congregation.

Thank you.

Your’s in Christ
