April's 2000 Leader Update

Hello there,

Sorry about the delay in contacting you over the future of the youth & children's work at Meadow Way. I have finally sorted out my new computer.

Please check out your details in the list of leaders enclosed, particularly whether you consider yourself the main leader, a leader or you just attend. Please let me have any changes or let me know if I have missed someone out. The next two church meetings I am taking are:
March 25th Morning Sunday Special - looking at why we should have a child protection policy and what this consists of.

April 30th Evening Service - Looking at the 5 purposes of youth work in detail.

Both are aimed at the whole church, but would be of interest to the youth and children's workers.

This should lead us nicely into us setting time aside reviewing the youth & children's work against these purposes. I propose that as many of us as possible meet for a Saturday in May or June. This may extend to an additional meeting. After the Saturday I plan to meet individually with each leader or in small groups, so no one will be left out.

I would also like to start child protection training in June. I would also like to put together a training package next autumn. I am also looking to set up a pigeon hole in the foyer for future correspondence plus with various youth books and magazines people can borrow.

Therefore could you also please fill in the short questionnaire below and let me have it back, so I can plan the Saturday review.
Can I also ask if you have any leaders meetings for young & children's work in the future or for the camps, that you let me know when and let me have a copy of any minutes produced.

Please continue to pray for ourselves, the children and youth people at Meadow Way. Remember my door is always open.
Yours in Christ
