Outreach to Young People in Tillydrone & Seaton
Brothers and Sisters in Christ – Can You Help Us?
North East Scotland Youth for Christ (NESYFC) have been both blessed and privileged to be a part of the growing multi team ministry which is coming together as one body in Christ to follow His example and reach out to people where they are and particular in Tillydrone and Seaton.
As you know, we have our full time youth worker Curtis Sangbarani working with the young people (football coaching, school pastor at St Machar Academy, befriender at Riverbank School, TLG, Cage football, discipling young people, helping out at the Mission and Lighthouse etc). We are seeing that work impacting on young people in a positive way.
Through people moving on and being called to other parts of our Lords work, we at NESYFC are at a critical stage in our ministry regarding the manpower required behind the scenes, to support and develop the ‘front end’ work in Tillydrone and Seaton. At the moment it is difficult for us to see how the ministry can continue in its present form if we do not get more people on board.
A short video on the work we do with the Transforming Lives for Good (TLG) project, you can watch it here:
All over the UK, children are struggling in school for all kinds of reasons and many families are suffering without hope. The effects of bullying, bereavement, family breakdown, poverty or being in the care system can have a huge impact on a child's education. The associated bad behaviour can lead to them being excluded for school. Some children may be struggling with a lack of confidence, have no positive role models, or just need an adult to talk to.
TLG Early Intervention provides a practical solution to support children, families and schools in their community. They intervene at the crossroads to bring support, care and education to make sure that children have a hope for the future and that their life is not over before it’s even started. This may be through a volunteer offering one to one help to act as a mentor, right through to intensive support of young people and their families that have been excluded from school.
The Cage is now back in action - here it is at Seaton Primary Car Park with our new lights for operation on dark winter evenings. Praise God for His provision! Now all we need is more team volunteers, so please consider whether you can help out, and pray that Curtis and the team get a good response from young people as they take The Cage out.
