Children and Youth WORK
St John’s places a high value on its work with children and young people.
After 5 years with us, our wonderful Children and Youth Worker, Abby, has just moved on to a new , exciting post elsewhere. We do not currently have a Children and Youth Worker, though children and teenagers will continue to be catered for at St. John’s.
Abby worked tirelessly with children and youth through sessions on Sunday mornings, in mid-week meetings and with the local schools and Messy Church. She developed children’s understanding of prayer through ‘Prayer Stations’ either by inviting classes to church or setting up prayer stations in the local school. She was ‘tech savvy’ and maintained contact with families and the two mid-week groups through zoom during the pandemic. She was multi-talented and headed-up Café Church in real life and on zoom. We are very grateful for all she did.
