16th October Youth Workers Conference
Venue: St Rita’s, Honiton 10.00 – 2.30 People are welcome to make a voluntary contribution on the day.
I am inviting everyone across the diocese who either works with young people or would like to work with young people (this includes catechists) to join me at Honiton. Rise Theatre will be joining us to celebrate all the youth work and events (and what used to happen before COVID) across the diocese. I hope it is an opportunity for us to reflect on what is happening in our parishes and across the diocese, offering each other support and a chance to share our talents. My aim is to build a forum where we can continue to share ideas and experiences along with a chance to call upon each other for help when needed. Rise Theatre will offer a workshop for everyone, offering suggestions of activities that can used in the parish either as part of the catechesis programme or informal events. Lunch will be provided. For further information or to simply join the forum, please email Saskia Hogbin: firstname.lastname@example.org
