URBAN YOUTH

Recently we ran a SHOWCASE event.  This involved gathering all of the areas we work in and giving young people from these different areas a chance to perform, acts included MCing, street dance and band performances with a clear gospel message by one of our workers.  The event had a great atmosphere and as the young people were so involved they really took ownership of it and invited all their mates.  I think that music really brings people together, no matter what area they are from and we have also seen it engage young people that often will not engage with anything else.  Many of the young people involved were from Firth Park and with funding we could start a music project in this area working with the young people to engaging them with the way they live their lives and how they act in certain situations.  I honestly believe that that work could be vital in seeing young people make better decisions and come to follow God.
