With Mike (Youth Minister) starting a new job and the group constantly struggling with numbers of adult volunteers for the Wednesday session, we have taken the decision to close the Wednesday sessions and to restructure. Mike’s new role will not allow him to be able to continue to be the leader on a Wednesday afternoon.
We require one adult per 14 young people and as such we feel we are also unable to continue with the Wednesday session on safety grounds. Some weeks we have 40 plus young people and just myself and a volunteer.
The safety of the young people is paramount and we hope that you understand the need for us to restructure the sessions.
We are planning to move the sessions onto week nights, which should allow us to get more adult volunteers involved.
We are aiming to start in March and as such the last session of the Wednesday group will be the 12th February 2020.
Monday the 2nd March will see a music night at Amplify Youth Group. We have drums, amps and microphones, all we need is YOU! ( and maybe a guitar) Starting at 7pm and ending at 9pm.
Tuesday 10th March will see a Tech night at Amplify. This is for budding photographers, film makers, web designers and anything to do with technology. Starting at 7pm and ending at 9pm.
Wednesday 18th March, Amplify will be holding a drama session. We will read through a play and pursue putting on a performance on the main stage. Starting at 7pm and ending at 9pm.
Friday 15th March will be out monthly Faith night. This is aimed at those wishing to question their faith, strengthen their faith and those going on pilgrimage to Lourdes and other holy places. We will occasionally go to Lowe house and join in with the Animate team. Starting at 7pm and ending at 9pm.
