New youth groups and initiatives are being launched with Golden Ticket events, when churches welcome Year 7’s back for reunion parties and events, to have fun with their friends from their Primary school days, and re-connect with their local churches. It has
been great to take part in a few of them, pictures here from Great Doddington, Yardley Gobion, Four Spires Benefice, Weedon Bec…
And we are having a Golden Ticket Get Together on Tuesday 10th Jan at 2pm at Bouverie Court for anyone who has started a GT project to feedback on what they’ve learnt and experienced and for those who are interested in giving it a try to learn from the pilot schemes.
Re:Charge gatherings of youth leaders to train, share and encourage are back up and running, the most recent sessions took place in Kettering/Corby, East Northants and Rutland. Look out for a Re:Charge event near you soon.
Area Youth Gathering Events
We held a Wellingborough Gathering in Great Doddington in November. It was a Pizza Party for young people connected to churches in the Wellingborough area, and we were delighted to host yp from 5 churches. We had fun together and also started planning a collaborative Worship event for in the new year. Date tbc.
In Northampton we held our third Celebrate worship gathering on 16th October at Emmanuel Church, Weston Favell. Groups of young people from 5-7 churches in the Northampton area led elements of the service, including music, prayer activities, games and plenty of food! It was great, once again to welcome young people from all over the region to join with us in celebrating the gifts that God has given to each young person, as we Praised Him together.
South Northants recently had it’s first gathering of young people called Launchpad, to encourage one another and plan for an area youth worship gathering which happened on November 20th at St Lawrence’s Church in Towcester. It was fantastic to see young people leading worship for each other, encouraging each other in their faith.
Our next event for older Young Leaders will be the much anticipated Inspire Weekend Away.
We also have a day for Junior Young Leaders coming up on February 16th 2017
