In Term 2 of last year, we restarted our Friday night youth group. We decided to call this group LIT - Living Illuminated Truth, as our goal is to help guide the children in life and on their journey towards God. What happened next we did not expect: on average during term 2 we had around 25 children every Friday. This allowed us to bring in brand new families into our church, and has allowed us to help these children along their journey to find God.
Every Friday is madness with all the games and crafts, but this madness is accompanied by a lesson every week. These lessons are prepared by the leaders and are there to aid the children in improving their relationship with God.
During term 2 we had to increase our leader base to 9 leaders from the 4 leaders we had at the end of last year. We had our first themed evening with everyone dressing in their pyjamas.
Going forward, we wish to increase the number of themed evenings, as well as having some outings with the children. We are planning on improving our advertising, and getting the children to bring their friends. We hope that by doing this we can increase our numbers exponentially.
Term 3 holds much promise, watch this space to see how we fulfill these promise.
