Young People bring themselves to church at Bulwell

Eleanor Rice (children’s, youth and families leader at Bulwell URC, Nottinghamshire) shares what most encourages her in her work: “The children and young people keep coming and bringing other people – they want to be here and share their lives with us which is such a privilege. On Sunday morning we have half a dozen young people who come on their own and get involved in the service with readings, prayers, taking the offering, joining in the all age games and activities.” Alongside Sunday services the church offers clubs for different age groups and Messy Church. “But most important is the constant presence in the community – offering crafts in schools, the community garden, even the nearby gym when they run holiday sports clubs!” The great news is that Eleanor’s post is able to continue after the church secured new funding: “there is still so much more to do!” agrees the minister Revd Colin Bones.
