Monday splurgeathon light

Monday returns. The new URL for the blog seems to be working OK apart from ‘search’ on the site, oh and my Technorati rating now makes me less succesful than the Sinclair C5. Please update your links and blog-roll to the new address 🙂 If you’ve got any technical questions on the URL move then it’s no good asking me as I’m now so far from my understanding threshold that I’m in a different timezone . On the other hand, if you have a question about youth work ….. Let’s have a coffee 🙂
Diocesan Stuff:
Next Network of full timers meeting is on March 21st and we’ll be meeting at Farringdon.
Christian Aid are putting on a couple of evenings called “Recycling Rubbish – Renewing Hope” which look really good, details in the extended entry.
The latest edition of Youthwork Update is out and a copy has been posted to all Parishes!
On April 7th a consultation will be happening at Church House on the ‘spec’ for the new Bish’. I want some young people and youth leaders to be involved in this process! Are YOU up for it?

This week’s most pointless activity (but very funny) is Poke the Penguin! Enjoy.


Recycling Rubbish, Renewing Hope
Christian Aid invites you to share an evening with Ajantha Perera, of our partner organisation the Sri Lankan Methodist Church. Hear about Ajantha’s remarkable work with the rag pickers on Colombo’s Municipal Garbage Dump, and rebuilding work after the devastating Tsunami. The inspiring evening will also give you the chance to reflect, to take action for a fairer world and have a taste of some Sri Lankan food. Why not bring along a group of young people, or other youth workers from your area? It will be a great opportunity to hear first hand how with your help, Christian Aid can make a difference to the lives of people living in poverty.
Monday 13th March, 7-9.30pm
Park United Reformed Church, Palmer Park Avenue, Reading
