We love youth work – obviously!
We believe it is a fantastic way for bringing positive change into the lives of young people!
And we think there should be more of it – everywhere!
emerge can’t be everywhere, but there is a church in every community so we have developed Growing Youth Work: a vibrant new scheme to support any church to reach and transform the lives of young people in their local community.
Many churches simply don’t have the support, resources or expertise to deliver long-term, effective youth work models which can transform the lives of young people in their local community. emerge have been inspiring young people through relational holistic youth work for over 25 years. We understand young people and we have worked with many churches so we know the kind of challenges they face to start engaging local young people.
Growing Youth Work will support churches to develop outward-facing youth work in their local community by sharing our knowledge and passion, mentoring youth workers and increasing capacity and skills to grow transformational work with young people.
We are currently working with three new churches and we are beginning to advertise this far and wide so please do share what we are doing.
Do we dare to dream of every church in Bradford engaging young people in its local community?
