We prayed that they have the sure footing of the good news, hope and comfort of the Gospel, and that they will share this in their families.
We asked God how we can reach the groups we are no longer seeing, and how to support the school leaders. “Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths, guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my saviour, and my hope.” (Psalm 25:4-5)
We were led to looking at online resources for Christian Union (CU), to making more use of social media, and to online communications such as Zoom. Many exciting opportunities presented themselves. Thank you, Lord!
Our preparations are ongoing and we are planning for the new school year. Our immediate focus is:
- Preparing to deliver CU every week to students at Woking College, with continued support from Tom Garner (New Life Church) and Dave Doran (St Mary of Bethany Church).
- Having regular communication with Heads of Schools and providing prayer support.
- Delivering “Its Your Move” to Year 6 students in a new way and supporting the teachers through this.
- Looking at what assemblies will look like in September.
The youth at Woking College are enjoying our Zoom CU sessions, the discussions and prayers, and being able to spend time with each other, which has given them some normality and routine.
More students are engaging with us through social media, including many who would not normally attend a Christian group.
