I was up in the far North of the Diocese yesterday evening in the lovely market town of Olney. Had the privilege of being at Mix@Six which is a great informal service which attracts all ages but is very much owned and run by the teenagers. Really REALLY great band!
So encouraging to see young people so much at the heart of the church and part of making things happen. The Church are actively running the "Growing Leaders (Youth Edition) course" and I spoke to a couple of the mentors last night who were really getting a lot out of it too.
I was laughing at myself on the way back. The conundrum of loving loud, energetic Youth Led worship BUT then listening to Radio 4 all the way home!
