At the beginning of November the BYSP team spent a week running a full programme of lessons for Bridgnorth Endowed School within the context of a creative reflective environment. They taught lessons on Christian Pilgrimage, Creation, Identity and the Sanctity of Life. Through the week the team taught around 400 students and gave each and every one of them a time and space to explore their own thoughts about life, their beliefs and their responses to issues in the world around them.
To put that into context, that’s 400 students taught over 16 hour long lessons, weaved in amongst a programme that included assemblies for the whole school, 4 hours of targeted support meetings with students who have specific needs in both schools, and six evening clubs that are run with and/or by our central team. Each club has around 25 young people attending in the different areas at present, and that was the scope of work in just one week.
On Sunday 6th December we are encouraging churches to have a prayerful focus on young people and work with young people around the area whether the work is done through BYSP or not.
On the same day we’ll also be opening a prayer room which will remain available for 24 hours from 2pm in the afternoon. If you would like to spend some time in the prayer room which will be situated in the café area of The Bridge Youth Centre, please do book your time slot with us by using sign-up sheets in your own church or by contacting the Bridge office on 01746 218285.
