South Cheltenham Churches Youth Project Update August/September

The deadline for July meant I couldn’t inform people of my departure and so this is my final piece for the team churches magazines, newsletters and pew sheets. I have really enjoyed my time here in South Cheltenham and have great memories of my time here. I really enjoyed starting Rock Solid and seeing that group grow. I was proud of the young people who led two youth services at St Peters and Warden Hill. I loved working in Bournside School twice a week this last year, I had fun and loved seeing young people grow in faith and community at Soul Survivor and events like Big Church Day Out. I enjoyed chilling out every Fri evening at Church House with some lovely young people at Sanctuary Youth Cafe.

I will be on the team of Vergers at Gloucester Cathedral from next month and will be ensuring it operates fully every day. Please pray for the young people and management committee as they seek the way forward from September. Thank you for your support this past two and half years and I may see you again if you are ever in Gloucester for a pilgrimage or service.  Cheers for my team of volunteers who ensured we provided youth groups each and every week.

Shalom my friends!

Ian Hart
