Youth Round-up: December 2012

Christmas Market – Can I thank those young people and leaders who helped get games and food ready to sell at the Christmas Market last month. We were able to make flapjacks and gingerbread and to run some games tables in the hall, which proved to be very popular. Special thanks to the Thompson family and to all those who worked so hard on the day.

Confirmations – I think you’ll agree with me that our confirmation service with Bishop David was a very moving event. 12 young people were confirmed along with a number of adults too. It has been a pleasure to help prepare them for the day, along with Mandy, and I hope you’ll keep them in your prayers, as this is not the end but the start of a journey!

Nativity and Banners – Please look out for our Christmas banners in the cloister this year which have been made by FAITH – our young peoples group for school years 6-9 – I think they will make a beautiful addition to the festivities in Bournville this year. Also, we are hoping to have a few figures from our life-size nativity make an appearance (somewhere!) during Advent so please what out for them too!

“Chocolate Lifepaths” – Either side of Easter in 2013, St Francis Church will be hosting something called Lifepaths – a Scripture Union initiative where school children are invited to come and discover about a local person of faith and how they made an impact on their area. We have chosen the life of George Cadbury and, through workshops and activities to be held in the church, young people can find out what made him tick and how his faith influenced the way he lived and worked.

If you think you might like to help me host this venture then please speak to me. It’s my hope to have 3 or 4 parishioners eager to encourage young people to dig a bit deeper into how faith can turn into action!
