Learn to Listen
essential training & learning for work with young people – exploring participation, church life & young people
Thursday 30th April
St Alban’s Church,
Bartons Road,
West Leigh, Havant, Hampshire
A practical evening offered by the Diocese of Portsmouth, exploring methods, models and exercises to help parishes, PCC’s and all church groups engage with young people (11-18 years old), their views and involvement in church life…

This is a “how to” session backed up by a little bit of theory. You’ll come away with resources and ideas to help engage young people positively in the life of your church.

Learn how to listen to what matters to young people! Ideal for clergy, readers, PCC members, youth volunteers and anyone interested in working with and alongside young people within their church community.
Please could you let the organisers know if you are coming so they can cater for refreshments and also have the right number of handouts. Contact : Mrs Kay Lancaster, 023 92 899 656

Scripture Union – It’s Your Church

its your churchIt’s Your Church is a 16 page A4 booklet aimed at 8 – 11 year olds who are visiting a church as part of their RE syllabus. It offers an opportunity for churches to connect with their local schools as they invite children to visit their building and community. The booklet contains generic information about churches that can easily be applied in many different denominational settings. Children are invited to become TV presenters, finding out information that they can present back at school.
