Young people from our J Team planned and led yesterday's morning worship. Their theme was the journeys of St Paul and the relevance of his experiences to our own individual journeys. About ten of the youngsters, aged 11 to 18, were involved in the planning and delivery of the service over an eight week period. They were guided by J Team Leaders Michael Foote and Viv Kemp, the latter being promoted to 'God' for a one line contribution during one of the sketches. Two of these sketches were written by Hannah Wright, one co-written with her brother Sam. The service was opened by a four-part harmony contribution from the Youth Choir and the hymns were led by the Music Group. Many of the congregation commented on leaving how enjoyable and meaningful the service had been. So we once again need to thank and congratulate our young people for their thoughtful and creative leadership of our worship.
