      Heading home

      The school year comes to an end and with it so does the team.  Having joined us in September as part of the YFC One gap year programme, Louissa, Bekky and Troy move on to a variety of things next year.  We asked them to tell us a little about their year.

      Bekky's year

      It has been a busy start to the year for YFC One volunteer Bekky in her placement at her church, Holy Trinity in Tewkesbury.  Our volunteers are involved in working with the young people in their host church.  Besides the regular youth work Bekky has been involved in a number of other events with the church this term.

      Starting with Jesus

      Just over two years ago we committed ourselves to grow a greater culture of prayer within the life of our ministry. We have moved things forward but 2017 is time for a jump. Along with the whole of YFC in Britain we are committing to a year of prayer. We are committing to start with Jesus, each day in surrender to Him. We choose to stand with Jesus, standing firm in Him as we journey with Him. Finally we choose to stay with Jesus in unswerving commitment to Him and His mission.

      Introducing Louissa

      In September, the well travelled Louissa joined us from Brighton, via Brazil, as a YFC One volunteer. She immediately gains the accolade of the teams best ballet dancer, not hard to achieve but she is rather talented. She told us a little about why she has taken a year out and a little bit about herself.

      The Coast to Coast challenge

      It started over a lift home from the YFC Conference in January.  Paul was giving Chris Elsdon, the Director of Salford YFC a lift to Cheltenham on the way home from the conference in Manchester.  As they chatted about youth work,  life and cycling they hit upon cycling the Coast to Coast route from the Irish Sea to the North Sea in a challenging two days as a fundraiser.
