and refreshments

6.30 pm - 8.30 pm

Some topics will include

  • Engagement – different approaches
  • Communication and why we have to
  • Empowering young people – respecting them and responding positively
  • How to work with partners such as schools and colleges and other agencies that deal with young people to make that initial contact.
  • Possibilities of social media will be explored.
The positives for the wider community will also be covered.

This will be a discussion session and you will be expected to participate with comments on what your parishes already do; what they don’t do and why; what are perceived to be barriers and how they can be overcome.
Good ideas will be shared and unsuccessful experiences will be used to learn from.
