A busy but amazing time…

Luke 2:10-11
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I Bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord”.

WOW, another few months on and It’s been a really busy but amazing time for Harry & I…

Again, supporting students through lessons, 1:1 mentoring & youth work activities and evening youth clubs. We have finally launched our website, so please have a look at our work in more detail.

Over the Autumn term, I had the opportunity to speak at a number of churches stretching across, Bridport, Bournemouth, Ringwood and Blandford. I have really enjoyed joining everyone, sharing what is on my heart and updating the congregation on our projects. Again, I’m always willing to meet up with you to hear about possible opportunities and speak at
services, church groups or men’s or woman’s breakfasts which allow you to hear from us and find out more about the project. I welcome any opportunities to do this in future.

On the approach to Christmas, we had an opportunity with Colfox students to decorate a Christmas tree that is on show in early December at the United Church in Bridport as part of
the Christmas tree Festival. We decided to theme our Christmas tree I AM… and asked the young people to answer this simple question: ‘When asked, ‘I am’ what do you think
about?’ The answers included;

Broken – Struggling with family – Strong – Stressed
Lost – Loving Life – Alienated

Success: After delivering the MyLife Course to 24 young people at St. Edwards school in Poole, all the young people passed the OCR qualification and have now started another
cohort.

MyLife is a portfolio of unique character based and life skills courses, providing imaginative ways to develop and recognise young peoples’ achievements, building positive character traits and enhancing their lives.

We would love to extend this and have a greater impact with the work we do. I feel we are in a good place to grow this amazing ministry but as ever it’s reliant on funding, just to keep the
project going.
