I wonder how many of us really understand the size of our Youth Ministry programme here in Cromer?
I’m sure many of you do, but perhaps for those who aren’t so sure, I thought I’d take this opportunity to highlight a few areas, which would benefit from some extra help.
We run up to 6 groups throughout the week for young people aged between 11-18. Each of those groups requires planning, materials and resources, and each group requires leaders/volunteers with different skill sets.
Sunday Club teaching takes place every Sunday morning, working with around 10-15 young people. A couple of volunteers to help Coral and me work with our church youth would be great. Fresh Air takes place at Cromer Academy. I currently lead the group on my own working with only 4-5 young people. It’s a relaxed, informal group that looks at the basics of the Christian faith. Impulse, our mid-week discipleship group, is very much like a small group where we help the young people really get to grips with their faith. And FUSION, our Friday night youth group with between 20-30 young people coming regularly. If you love young people and high energy games this is the group for you!
None of these groups requires a life-long commitment. If you think you can offer to help, if only just once a month, I’d love to hear from you. If you fancy trying a group out, or want to know more information about other areas then please get in touch. Youth ministry is a challenge, but it is very rewarding.
