Since I have been in post in the diocese I have realised there is a whole world of amazing people, projects and initiatives going on that as a Parish youth minister I had no idea about. So we want to change the way we communicate with you, in order to let you know who are are, what we do, how we can help you, and just to create greater links of support between the School of Mission and the parishes. So from January 2018 we will no longer have a YCF communications stream, but we will be communicating out as School of Mission (SOM). School of Mission is made up of a team of amazing administrators, several advisers and our fearless leader Rev Canon Mark Collinson. We are here to support and help mission take place across the diocese. Myself and Andy Saunders, whom you know, work as youth and children advisers, but we have others who do great work in every other area of the church. So through our communications as SOM we will be introducing you to everyone in the department, what we do, and how we can help. And also sharing amazing testimonies of what God is doing across the diocese to inspire and encourage you where you are. We will be doing this through out SOM Facebook, SOM Twitter, SOM Instagram, SOM Newsletter and SOM Blog. So please subscribe to these when they come out. We will do out best to share links over all our current platforms and we look forward to working with you all over 2018.
