Living clean in a polluted world...
At the weekend I was involved in a great project called "Urban Mission" (I discovered there are loads of projects called that!), subtitled as "living clean in a polluted world".
It was a joint thing with 3 youth workers from Baptist churches in SW London, Ascension Trust and the London Baptist Association.
On Saturday we gathered for food and worship (led by young people who were fab) and teaching. We then did social action - visiting an old folks home and a homeless project. I went with a group to a dementia wing, which was eye opening for the group I think. We then did a bar-b-q and de-briefed. We gathered on Sunday to think about how we carry this forward - both as a project but also in our lives. The young people then led the service at the host church on Sunday.
Not a terribly original model or concept, but great to see urban young people passionate about Jesus, willing to get involved, and break the stereotypes.
And some great grass roots youth work being done by the youth leaders who were part of it.
