Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I’ve had the most incredible 9 years working in Comber Youth for Christ and in that time I’ve had the privilege of journeying with some incredible young people. Through the highs and lows of their lives we have been present; consistent in provision, supportive in relationships and committed to the long term engagement of every child and young person we meet in the hope that they will one day reach their full, God-given potential.
So what’s a Sleep Out got to do with this? Simply put, I’m giving up something I love and enjoy [my bed and a decent nights sleep] for something that I love even more - The young people of The Net! They are worth me going through The Big Sleep Out for.
We have some amazing plans ahead for this coming academic year.
- C O N N E C T : a young parents peer group, providing support, resources and training to be even better parents than they already are.
- A D V A N C E : a homework group aimed at providing additional support to young people in education.
- V I N T A G E : an intergeneration programme providing a space for some of our more vulnerable members of the community.
- S O L O : An Autism Drop In Session for 15-18 year olds, in partnership with NAS Ards.
With some of these programmes on the cards we need supporters to get behind us to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of young people in our community, to help them know Jesus more and journey with them as they begin to know that they are made for more.
