We do all the normal kind of stuff with young people that you might expect: club, Bible studies, fun activities, meals, mentoring, residentials, worship and prayer etc. etc. We plan and do these things with one another, whatever our age; in the context of a kind culture. The young people are the treasure of our church.
Underpinning all of this, is our desire to be an inclusive family. We don't say this lightly. We have found that it can mean giving in ways that we never imagined we had capacity for. But as we give ourselves away, we have also discovered a deep joy. And we know that this is just the beginning of His work in and through us, as the community of Saint Laurence. Jesus is able to do far more than we could ever ask for, or even imagine. So we encourage one another to keep fully leaning into Him.
'For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it' - Jesus (Luke 9:24).
