Connor’s youth and children’s officers are inviting anyone involved in these vital ministries to come together to share and encourage one another for the new season ahead.
Christina Baillie (youth) and Victoria Jackson (children) have joined forces to organise Rebuild – an event taking place in St Patrick’s Parish, Broughshane, on September 11.
“It has been a tough year, but as churches reopen there are more opportunities to relaunch children’s and youth ministry within our parishes,” Victoria and Christina stated: “This can feel daunting, and so we want you to know you are not alone! Rebuild will be an opportunity to come together, to encourage one another and share ideas as we look ahead.”
Participants will be encouraged by Bishop George Davison, resourced by Victoria and Christina in a number of children’s and youth sessions, and inspired by each other in small group discussion time.
This will be a thank you to leaders for their hard work over the challenging last year and the event will include lunch at the end.
Rebuild is open to everyone who is involved in children’s and youth ministry, including clergy, employed children’s and youth workers and volunteers. The event begins at 10am on September 11.
To ensure correct numbers for social distancing and for lunch those wishing to attend are asked to book, free of charge, using Eventbrite.
