We were delighted that Matt Summerfield, of Urban Saints and Senior Pastor of Hitchin Christian Centre, was our speaker at this event. Matt’s passion in releasing potential in youth and children’s workers was evident and we were pleased over 70 were able to attend. Matt is the founder of the livelife123.org – find out more about intentional, accountable disciple-making relationships on their website.
We also want to thank the Anglican Bishops of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, the Heart of England Baptist Assoication, Barnabas Community Church, Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth Youth & Schools Project for their financial support as well as Youth Ministry Network for their practical assistance.
Our thanks also go to the staff at Wroxeter Hotel for their attentive and efficient service on the day.
We will be considering the next steps for similar events in 2018 as we move towards involvement in the national HOPE18 activities – more details will be posted on this website in due course..

2016 Youth Leaders’ Breakfast
Our first event specifically geared for Christian Youth Leaders was held on Saturday 14 May 2016 at Wroxeter Hotel near Shrewsbury.
This free breakfast event was an opportunity for anyone involved in Christian Youth Ministry to meet together, worship and share best practices and lessons learned with guest speaker Ray Thomas of South West Youth Ministries (SWYM).
