November 2002 Leader Update

I have finally got round to producing another leaders update, especially for those who don't have internet access.


I have arranged two more child protection training sessions in November, one on the 16th and one on the 30th. Both start at 9am and finish at 1pm. All youth and children's workers must have attended one of the past sessions or one of these new ones. This includes all crèche workers & helpers. You will receive a personnel invite if you have not attended one before. Full details are on the training page.
Children's Ministry (Kingsway) are having a training day for children's workers on the 2nd in Cambridge. Full details can be found on their web site. Let George know if you want to go by Wednesday 30th October. Should be very good.

Leaders meeting

Remember our youth leaders meeting at Karen & Biggles on 20th November at 8pm.

Child Protection Policy

This is currently under review by the Elders. When this is issued all leaders and helpers will have to complete application forms and provide 2 references. I will then formally sit down with everyone and process applications for everyone through disclosure (Criminal Records Bureau). I have already been through the loop and it was quite painless.
In the meantime could all groups check the organisational chart on the notice board and let me have details of all who are extra to that list.

Norwich YFC youth leaders breakfast

The next Youth leader's breakfast at Trowse YMCA is on Saturday 9th November, 8.30am to 10.30am. Can I encourage as many to attend this event.


The next Celebration is on Saturday 30th November. Please encourage the young people who are arranging this event by praying for them and attending this event. Details will on the notice board when I have them.


Please remember all the young people and children in Prayer.

24-7 Prayer

The young people at Norwich Salvation Army Citadel are having a 24-7 week of prayer from 22nd to 29th November 2002. We have been invited to join them. More details when I have them.
By the way there are no U:Nite events planned before Christmas, but we are considering a concert in Feb.

YFC Linked church 

We are now linked with YFC. Bible class is now to be know as Detonate. Do we change all the other youth groups in line with an explosive theme? I now have the YFC Rock Solid 2 video and leaders pack available to review. People should be receiving free copies of Youthwork each month. We are due to receive a leader's manual shortly.
