UPDATE June 2021
We have been able to re-start many of our groups and events over the past couple of months, taking into account Covid restrictions. We are so excited to be meeting with you all again and hope that, whilst there isn’t everything we would like to do yet, there should be something for most age groups:
Seekers, St Clare’s (age 8-11) – Tuesdays 6 – 7.30pm
Seekers, Lea Town (age 8-11) – Fridays 3 – 5pm
Anointed (age 11-14) – Sundays 7 – 9pm
Sent (age 15+) – Sundays 7 – 9pm
Unveiled (Praise and Worship, Scripture, Short Talk, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament) – Fortnightly Fridays 7.30-8.30pm
We also continue with our DropIn for the Homeless and vulnerable every Wednesday.
Daily Scripture posts (with reflections on Sundays) on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/groups/323078701983804
Kairos Volunteers – We are looking for adults to help us in all areas of our ministry, no experience necessary
YOKE young leaders – For those in School Years 11-13. We will be starting the new year at the end of August so applications are open for anyone coming to the end of Year 10.
Metanoia Missionaries – Come and spend a year (or more) working full-time alongside us if you are aged 18-30. More details here: http://metanoiaproject.co.uk/metanoia-missionaries/
We have lots of exciting plans for the next Academic year and look forward to seeing you all soon! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch
Dear Young People, Parents, Friends and Supporters,
Because of recent guidance from both the Government and the Bishops’ Conference, and in consultation with the schools and Parishes with which we work, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all of our groups and events except our work with the Homeless.
Therefore, there will be no youth groups at St Clare’s or St Mary’s Lea Town, no talks for adults at St Wilfrid’s, no meetings for our Young Leaders or for the Students and Young Adults, no sessions for Young Families, no Adoration with Praise and Worship etc. until further notice.
During this time, when many of our usual ways of expressing our Faith have been removed, and we can no longer gather together, it is all the more important that we find ways to invest in our relationships with God and each other. Although our regular groups and events will not be able to continue for the foreseeable future, the Metanoia Project Team will continue to be here to support you in any way we can and we will be finding different avenues to build and maintain community in ways that do not require physical contact.
We will also continue to offer spiritual input, scripture reflection and prayer resources through various means so look out for ways to stay involved and nourish your Faith! You can let us know what sort of thing you would / would not like to hear about by filling in our ‘contact preferences’ form here: http://metanoiaproject.co.uk/contact-preferences/
If you are fit and well and do not support any vulnerable people in your work or household, why not consider helping us serve the homeless at our Wednesday Drop-in? Our usual team of volunteers is somewhat depleted due to the need to self-isolate so any help will be gratefully received.
We will miss meeting with you all but hope that we will be able to see you all again in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, look after yourselves, keep praying and keep in touch!
Ruth and Joe
