Relationships are crucial to our faith development. It isn’t a private thing, it grows, is challenged and nurtured by being with other people. I just completed an MA in childhood and youth studies and was privileged to do a little bit of research as part of that with young people in a Church of Scotland congregation. These young people spoke of the relationships with older people in their congregation which were life giving, however they also craved community with peers who were Christians. How we relate with young people and the communities we build with them matter. If it takes a village to raise a child it also takes a whole church to nurture young people in the faith.
This year another team will be heading out from Holyrood Evangelical Church to join SU Hungary in their summer camps. We will be travelling out together but going to two different camps, which run from 13- 17 July. We are all eagerly looking forward to returning and spending time with the children (aged 6-14). It's a wonderful opportunity to teach the Bible, give English lessons and share God’s love. Once again we thank you for your encouragement and support and invite you to remember us in prayer during this time.
