Youth Work Update March 2017

 

Hi I’m Abi, the youthworker for Kirby Muxloe Free Church and St Barts.

Lots of things to tell you all about his month, I have finished the Diocesan Leadership Programme. A 6 month process ran by the diocese of leicester helping me to look at ways to affectively lead the teams I run. This has been a really important time of learning and hopefully this will allow our  teams work more effectively.

 

This month also saw us host our Annual ‘Reality Fundraiser’. Some of the team took part in a back-to-front triathlon to raise money for the work we do here at Reality. They had to complete 5k run, 20k cycle and 750m swim, I was shocked by how fast they all were. Final total raised will be released soon. Thanks to all those who have donated, if you still want to contribute let me know.

 

Now for the main event, the ‘YOUTH SERVICE’. Our lovely group of young people led services at both The Free Church & St Barts over the past few weeks and, if I do say so myself, WERE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I feel very much like a proud parent, watching them lead worship, pray for us as churches and talk to the congregations about how God provides for us abundantley. The message was clear about how we should be so thankful to God for all he does for us, and how we should reach out to others more.

Finally we hosted our Joint Youth Club BBQ, on the 18th May. It again was a great success. We saw so many young people come and spend time with us, many which we hadn’t met before, eating bugers & hotdogs, and lots and lots of yummy donated cake. A massive Thank you to all of you who helped it to run so well, we really appreciate it. We are always in need of more help though for our regular sessions, if you can help please go to https://goo.gl/r9leHs

Thanks for your Prayers and words of encouragment, Please continue to pray for the work we do in our area.

Blessings, Abi Fincham  – youth worker.
