They pitch in and help, hype our younger ones up, run games, sometimes help with teaching and pastoral care and generally they are the glue that nurtures our youth pastors and those younger than them.
It’s also a pretty challenging time in their lives, those last couple of years at school and first few years outside school as they navigate employment, apprenticeships and study.
We plan to run a space for senior youth to connect with each other, to grow in their relationships with God, and encourage their spaces within their own ministry units whatever that might look like.
So, we are introducing Senior Space, a short-term season of gathering regularly for two or three hours on a Sunday for those in Year 12 and 13 and those in their first years out of high school. (For those of you who have been around for a while, think BOLD and AMPLIFY).
