Do join us at the 2019 NECN national conferences, a great opportunity to meet with others who are passionate about Christian ministry and mission to social housing estates.
Titled “‘Always room for one more.’ Children, Young People and Estates; stories of participation and partnering”, we will be focusing on participation and partnering in our mission on social housing estates with Children and Young People. What’s working? What resources are available? Who is there to support our ministry? It will be a day of sharing wisdom and stories from Estate Churches and projects around the country.
We are delighted that Jasmine Yeboah, the Methodist Youth President, will be with us and will give an address.
Lynne Norman, NECN Trustee and Children, Youth and Families Development Officer with the Methodist Church writes “Jasmine took up the post of Methodist Youth President in September 2018. She has spent the last six months encouraging Methodists to be ‘courageous’, her theme for the year. In her enthusiastic and encouraging style, she will share her experiences of growing up on a Tottenham estate and her hopes for children and young people in the Church”.
Emily McDonald from the Church of England Youth Council, who gave a passionate speech on local leadership in estates at General Synod (view the speech here) will also be with us.
The fee for the day, including a light lunch, will be £25, but if this gets in your way, please contact us.
