February 2003 Leader Update


I have arranged two more child protection training sessions one on the 15th March and one on the 14th June. 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 & toddler workers/helpers. Full details are on the web site training page or on the church notice board.
CCPAS are also coming to Norwich. David and Pauline Pearson (from the CCPAS video) will be leading this training in person. For the ones who struggle to make a Saturday morning here is a great chance to do the training on two evenings during the week (Thursday 13th March & Friday 14th March). This will be held at Mulbarton Middle School, The Common, Mulbarton. This will be from 7.15pm to 9.30pm. Let me know (with a £12.50 cheque to PCCA) and I will book us in as a group. If we get 6 to go, we will each get £2 back. You know to show you how good these evenings will be I am going as well. Here's a chance to meet the real experts.

Training day - June 21st, 9am to 3pm

A number have asked for some training with children's work. Therefore I have invited Mark Tomlinson of Primary Focus to join us for the Saturday of June 21st and I have booked to the church lounge for the day. While this day will be aimed more at children's workers, it will be useful for youth workers too and parents or just interested people. I will need to firm up the topics by Easter for Mark, but I am totally open to what you wish us to cover. Please let me know.

Leaders meeting

Remember our youth leaders meeting at Becky's on Wednesday 26th March at 8pm. The next Sonrise meeting is on Sunday 16th March, 4pm, at Peter's.  Sorry I don't have CUTS dates yet. All this year dates are on the web site.

Norwich YFC youth leaders breakfast

The next Youth leader's breakfast at Trowse YMCA is on Saturday 9th November, 8.30am to 10am. Can I encourage as many to attend this event (you can come for 9am if you wish).
Also we have "Face to Face" with Norwich YFC on Saturday 22nd March, 7.30 to 9pm, at St Andrews Parish Church, Eaton.
This new event is an opportunity to find out more about what we do, to meet the team and to pray for the work.

Leaders Vacancies 

Speak to me for further details and job descriptions. All roles will be for a trial period of 3 months and then reviewed yearly.

Required now:

  • Friday night Inc - Main leader and other helpers.

I would like to highlight the need for a main leader for Fridays and for more leaders to help. Age is not an issue! We will need to review Friday nights in the summer and whether change is required.

Child Protection Policy

You will have received you own copy of the child protection policy. This is a living document and will be regularly updated. You will have also received an application form to become an approved Meadow Way Chapel youth and children's worker. All future youth and children's activities will only be staffed by approved workers. So please return the form to me as soon as possible. New helpers will have to fill in the application form before they can help at any event. See the policy for full details.
Currently we have been advised only to obtain disclosure from the CRB for new workers who have joined us within the year. Please still fill in the separate disclosure form as some time in the future everyone will be obtaining disclosure from the CRB in stages.
If you know of anyone who I have missed please let me know.


The next event is a concert with "World without End" at Proclaimers, Drayton. This on March 29th, doors opening at 7.00pm ending at approx 10.30pm. Tickets are £1.50.

Weekend away

The weekend went well. So we are booking Letton Hall for next year. So put Feb 27th to 29th 2004 in your diary for our next weekend away at Letton Hall. I am working on a small shortlist for speakers but I am always open to suggestions.


Please remember all the young people and children in Prayer.
