GIFT is going from strength to strength

Challenge in a GIFT session – who can build the highest structure?

Well, another term is over and we are planning and looking forward to the summer one with excitement. GIFT is going from strength to strength.

With a further 5 youngsters having joined us in the spring term, numbers for attendance now average 20 a session. With both age groups meeting on the same evening, inevitably we had some issues to work out, not least being how to deal with the decibel volume of that many young people in one place at the same time! In most future sessions, both age groups will be separated within the church as there are 2 or 3 places that smaller groups can work away from each other.

As leaders we are keen though to combine the groups at times so that the youngsters do understand they are all part of the GIFT family. They are a lovely group of young people, all with their own unique personalities and opinions and are very enthusiastic about being part of youth group, which shows in their dedication to regular attendance. Inevitably, we do sometimes have issues with behaviour and would ask that parents remind youngsters that we are all there voluntarily and need to show respect for each other.

We are keen to provide a different environment than the one they experience during a school day.
