Youth work in Marlow starts a new chapter

You hopefully know by now that Stewart Greenyer has finished leading the Youthwork run by The Marlow Methodist and Anglican churches. Myself and my wife Sami have been asked to temporally lead the work until September. This gives time for the churches to reflect on the work and seek God’s guidance for the future.

Since starting I have been blown away by a few things:

  • What a fantastic lot of young people we have connected to the churches. Passionate, enthusiastic, energetic and fun.
  • What an amazing team of volunteers who help lead the work we have. Committed to the young people they are truly awesome.
  • What a thrilling opportunity the churches have to speak into the lives of the young people of Marlow. Those already connected to the work and those still to be.

It feels like a new chapter is starting as the youth work story continues, but we need more people to help write the next lines. People who are passionate to see the life and energy, enthusiasm and creativity of young people reach their full potential in Jesus Christ.

The Church in Marlow will be dead and gone in 20 years if we do not reach this teenage generation for Christ. Now that has got your attention let’s get down to business. We really believe that knowing Jesus makes a huge difference to the lives of teenagers in Marlow. We have seen it. That’s why we want to provide the best Youth work we can. That is done with a great team.

We run two “Open” youth groups where the young people come and take part in activities, some organised, some just ‘hanging out’. We talk and have fun. We need two or three people to help with these clubs and at least one woman. Do you have a desire to see young people grow? Then helping in this group their faith? Then helping in this group could be for you.

At Activate we have similar amounts of fun but we particularly spend a bit of time looking in the Bible and thinking about how Jesus relates to our lives. For some they take it deeper and grow their relationship with Jesus. Do you love to see Young People grow in Volunteers will be supported, given something to do, encouraged, know their role and loved! We promise!
