CYM 3-Year Review 31st January

Was an upbeat, but challenging evening. Lots of things were honestly shared by all those present and time taken to consider what our bottom line position is as Christians, especially as we have been unable to recruit regular helpers to maintain the current activities and there is a growing conviction that we should be reaching out more into the local community. There is still lots for the regular CYM team to consider and a further planning session will occur on 2 March when Majors David and Susan, Denise Cooper (Divisional Children’s officer), Lynnette Harris (Divisional Youth Officer) and Ailsa meet to draw together all that has been shared. Do continue to pray

  • For the CYM team and helpers as we set the direction for the children and youth work in the corps over then next three years.
  • That God will bring us into harmony about what His priorities are for the next three years
  • That God will give us the courage to step outside of our comfort zones and dare to be different for Him.
  • For Denise Cooper (Divisional Children’s Officer) and Lynette Harris (Divisional Youth Officer) as they lead the review.
  • For the parents and young people who were part of this review and the really positive things they have shared so far.
