Fusion, Youth and Community

I know I’ve mentioned Fusion before however they are worth mentioning.
Yesterday afternoon found me in a Wine Bar in Thame for a presentation by Fusion. They’ve been working in Thame for a while now talking and listening to the community. They carried out a survey which involved talking to young people and well, everyone about the needs of young people and the community. Yesterday was the launch of that survey. The process has drawn so many people together and the Wine bar was packed with all sorts of people including Community leaders, Councillors, Youth workers, Scouts, Church leaders/members and more.
One of the things I love about Fusion is that they are a Christian organisation but so adjusted to their Roles and Goals that they can build bridges and enable people to work together from across all sections of the community. There was a real buzz about what this survey AND acting on it together could mean for Thame. I am looking forward to seeing how it develops!
Thinking: I may ask Fusion if they’ll help me put on a day in Oxford on Community Surveys, Open Festival Work and their approach to youth AND community work. Let me know if you’d be interested!

  1. Sounds good.
    Incidentally, do any Christian groups get involved with the Reading Festival? Just moved from Somerset where the diocese (now churches together) have been a regular fixture at the Glastonbury Festival for many years. Great opportunity for outreach AND free tickets. I don’t suppose we do anything similar (hint hint)? 🙂
