Youth Activities Time for youth is our version of a youth council- with a twist! Time for youth is alot more socially based and previously we have run residentials, training sessions, forums, pizza parties and even a pool party!- This term we have taken our Bishops 'on tour' to meet young people in their youth groups to ask them questions about their giftings and what they think Churches should be spending money on.This has been lots of fun. Please see the pictures below of some of our previous Time for youth adventures- If you would like to get involved in Time for youth and are of secondary school age then please contact your local youth adviser JOY- Colchester Area youth event November 12th, 7pm-9pm. @ The John Owen Barn, Church Road, Fordham C063NL.
