Happy New Year

Wishing you all a great start to 2012, a year that is likely to be a challenge and an adventure.
It’s a year where youth work needs to be a massive focus for church, community and society at large. I’m encouraged that the Archbishop of Canterbury is kicking off the year in this vein. Archbishop warns against hostility.
There’s a few issues to do battle with: demonisation of young people, youth unemployment, cuts in all areas (provision, services and support) and cost of further education/training! (To name a few).
Very proud to be part of the faith community who are working creatively to make a difference, serve communities and champion justice.
