Happy New Year!
We hope that 2018 is a great year for you, working with young people and we pray for you as you walk alongside them in their journey with Jesus.
Here are just a few things on the horizon that we would like to draw your attention to:
Inspire Young Leader’s Weekend Away 26th -28th January 2018
There are still some last minute spaces on our Young leaders’ training weekend. The weekend includes sessions on leadership, covenant and commitment. Alongside outdoor activities and plenty of opportunities for young leaders to meet and get to know one and other. This weekend is for young people aged 14-18, who show signs of leadership in any form. To find out more information or to quickly book in please contact Inspire co-ordinator Imogen Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org 07960 243254
Do you know any older young people who might like to join us for a day out in London observing General Synod on 10th February 2018? Are they interested in seeing how the CofE works from the inside, in the impressive setting of Church House in Westminster? Get in touch if so.
Junior Inspire 12th February 2018
Young leaders aged 10-13 are invited to come and develop their leadership, meet other young people and of course have lots of fun. The day will start and end at St. John’s Church in Corby and include a trip to Planet Bounce! We encourage you to send any young people who show leadership potential or are already taking on responsibilities in your Church.
