Fusion Student Worker’s Conference, 2016

INSPIRING AND EQUIPPING STUDENT LEADERS & WORKERS.

Improvise

Great improvisation comes from working hard at a craft or a skill. It requires dedication and commitment.

God is looking for a generation who can improvise the gospel in the student world; students who have so immersed themselves in Scripture, in the story of God and been so captivated by Jesus that they know how to act out his message to a watching world.

The Student Work Conference is designed for church leaders, student workers and their teams – an opportunity to gather with others, seek God ahead of a new year of ministry and be equipped for all that lies ahead.

Thy Kingdom Come – Pentecost 2016

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited Christians across the country to pray for mission and evangelism in the nine days leading up to Pentecost Sunday (15th May).

This time of prayer will culminate in six ‘Beacon Events’ around the country over Pentecost weekend, where people will pray for the renewal of the Church by the Holy Spirit and greater confidence to share the Gospel.

One of the national Beacon Events will take place at Winchester Cathedral.

There is an unashamed focus amongst this on ‘younger people’. So Youth and Children’s Leaders, you are key!

We’d love to see all the youth leaders, young people, children’s leaders and children across the diocese linked into this event and the prayer around it. And here are two ways you can do just that:

 

Gather – Pentecost Beacon Event, 15th May, 7-9pm

On 15th May, 7-9pm, we will be gathering from across the diocese for a prayer concert in Winchester Cathedral. It will be led by Bishop David, and will feature sung worship with Matt Redman and prayer led by Carla Harding from 24-7 Prayer.

Why not bring a group of young people from your parish or Deanery?

Prayer – Deanery Prayer Initiatives

24/7 prayer events will be taking place in every deanery in the nine days leading up to Pentecost. The Curates across the Diocese will be taking the lead on these events, along with the Area Deans.

Hopefully they will be getting in touch to let you know how you and the young people and children you work with can link in. If not – why not get in contact with your Area Dean and see what’s going on and how you can get involved!

Upcoming Youth Mental Health First Aid Training Days – April and June

April  –  21st and 22nd ¦ June – 16th and 17th

Why Mental Health First Aid?

Mental health problems are common in Children and young people  |  We often discriminate against people with mental health problems  |  Children and young people lack the insight to realise they need help  |  Mental health problems interfere with the important task of adolescent development  |  The majority of us don’t know how to respond.

Mental Health First Aid is an educational course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may be developing a mental health issue. In the same way as we learn physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health.

In each section you’ll learn how to:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem in young people
  • Feel confident helping a young person experiencing a problem
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help protect a young person who might be at risk of harm
  • Help prevent a mental health illness from getting worse
  • Help a young person recover faster
  • Guide a young person towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health problems
