From Friday 20th April until Saturday 21st April churches and organisations that work with young people gathered together in Stirling Baptist Church for the first Youth Learning Community. 11 of our family of churches were represented as we gathered to consider ‘what does it mean to make disciples of young people in Scotland in 2018?’
Worship was led by young leaders from Stirling, Sheddocksley and Onelife. Teaching was delivered by leaders from BUS, HTB, ONELIFE, Reign Ministries and Cairn. The content was incredibly helpful, practical, challenging and inspirational.
Each team had time to reflect on the teaching and work out what that meant for them in their church, when they went back home. As a Union we had a team made up of youth leaders and young leaders from across our network as we considered how we best encourage, resource and support churches to fulfil the great commission amongst a new generation.
Kirsty feeds back what team BUS have been working on.Team BUS brought together: Kirsty (Airdrie), Matthew (Stenhouse/ACF), Andrew (Adelaides/Ellon), Gary (Broughty Ferry), Irene (Westwood), Ally (SBC) and Ali (BUS)
As a team, we found the experience to be of incredible importance and cannot wait for the next gathering on 6 November.
If you or your church are interested in working out how best to reach and disciple the young people in your area, then please do contact us for more information. There are some limited places available for the next gathering in November.
