YMOSES — Jane Kent
It was great to meet up again after the summer and have three new young people join us, who have just started secondary school.
We listened to a song written and sung by Garth Hewitt called 'All the time' and reflected on and discussed the lyrics in groups. Keith, our minister, joined us and led a simple, informal communion at the end.
In October we are going to Witney Methodist Church to hear the new youth president speak and to attend workshops on the theme of courage.
YMOSES is an informal, faith based discussion group for young people at secondary school and beyond! If you would like to come along you would be very welcome — just give me a call or email Jane.
