Our current search for a full-time Family & Youth Worker chimes with an item at this week's annual Methodist Conference. The continued growth of young people within the Methodist Church was highlighted by Tim Annan, the Methodist Youth President. He explained that the annual 3Generate youth event in November had seen a 360% increase in attendees in the last five years. He said, "I hope and pray that we get to the point that 3Generate is not the only place where we hear the voice of the children and young people. I pray we get to a point where the voice of children and young people are heard louder and more clearly in each of our local churches, rather than just at a large event in November. The only way we can achieve this vision is by actively engaging, funding and supporting children and youth work at a grass-roots level of the church year-round."
So we are happy to play our part at the grass roots level with a new Family & Youth Worker. The final date for applications is next Friday, July 7th. For more details of the post, click here.
