At the start of term 2, we decided to restart our Friday night youth which we had ended last year due to there being no children. We decided to call this youth LIT, 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 has 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, we wish to increase the number of themed evenings in term 3, as well as having some outings with the children. Term wish also going to be a big and transformative term, we are planning on improving our advertising, but also planning on doing school visits to the surrounding schools in the area. 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.
