Inspire for 14 to 18 year olds
We meet for day sessions a couple of times a year, and spend an annual weekend away together.
We are currently looking forward to and planning for a weekend away together early in 2018. More details to follow soon
Recently we held an informal walk and picnic in a Country Park and before then we joined the CEYC (Church of England Youth Council) national open day at St Mark’s Church, Peterborough in April 2017. We enjoyed linking in our young leaders with others from around the country.
Our last residential with the young leaders at the John Lowther Centre near Kettering for this year’s weekend away. It was a really great time of fun, encouragement, faith-building, resourcing – and more fun!
Some previous events include spending a day in Wellingborough, playing Laser Maze, discussing how to run small groups, creating prayer stations together and getting to know each other.
And a previous weekend away together was full of fun activities, training, eating together and learning from each other, ready to go back to our churches equipped and resourced to make a difference.
And in June 2016 we were out in the countryside having fun, away from the pressures of exams, sharing faith stories, encouraging each other and enjoying fire, a tunnel, dens and friends!
Our hope is that these young people, who have been picked out by their church leaders as having potential in leadership, or who are already taking responsibility in their local church, will be nurtured, given skills and trained up to go forward in their Faith and Vocation. And it is a delight to see these young people encouraged and excited to be together as a group of young Christians from across the Diocese.
