Woody’s (Youth Ministry) Round Up

woody's.jpg Rootin Tootin type greetings Blogdonia. Here’s a whole load of stuff that I’ve lassoed and penned here in case it’s a) Useful, b) Funny or c) Stops people getting cross with me for not mentioning it 🙂
Last night I preached at a sung Evensong! Some Churches up in Buckinghamshire have Deanery services and hence the country church was filled and actually, I enjoyed the service (even if I didn’t understand some of the words AND my attempts to sing the Magnificat were surreal at best, criminally horrible at worst.)
The congregation (age wise) was, for the main, at least 50 plus BUT I wanted to record my thanks to the small posse of young people who came along …. It was great to see you 🙂

Anyway, here’s the round up:

Looking for games? John e-mailed me to flag up a new Games Site they are working on, well worth bookmarking I think as I reckon it’ll grow!
Want a web page? The Captain of My Small Boat has been testing Google’s facility to rapidly create a simple but elegant web-site and rates it highly! Lay out, hosting et al All sorted! Fab!
Campaigns: Couple of things that you/your group should check out. This Oxfam campaign against Predatory debt collection from Zambia. The ‘Flush out’ Campaign from Christian Aid is a fab campaign that should spark the imagination of youth groups, check it out here.
Video Stuff: Some people who read the, How to rip YouTube videos piece pointed out that they weren’t actually allowed to download any software (I.T control) so here’s a neat online solution! It’s called Vixy and although it has a limited number of Outputs, it works well and is online so free of I.T restriction, Job Done!
Thinky Bit: Brian on remembering what it was like to be young!
