Churches and Youth Workers

I was at a MENCAP Centre last night as I’d taken the projector and screen along for a film night they were having for their youth group. (This was because I’d been to one of their film nights last year and all the young people were crowded around a small combi video and TV struggling to see/hear so I said that they should give me a shout next time).
I was talking to the chief exec of the centre and I explained that I was a Church Youth Worker. To which she replied, “Yes, I was aware that lots of churches had got fed up with the local authority youth work(ers) and had got their own!”
I thought this was an interesting conclusion about why the Church employ youth workers?

  1. Absolutely Jon! Isn’t it also more evidence that the Church thinks the world knows what we’re all about?!?…
