Thank you for all your support for our work. I have been in schools to lead assemblies on Harvest and I have been having a few meetings to discuss some new ideas.
The Christian Union at KEVI has grown - it is on a Tuesday 3.30pm at the 6th Form Coffee bar.
I have also been looking at setting up a new "Open the Book" team in Morpeth - more to follow on that!
We have a new Prayer letter for Lifepath - find it here
Heather Cape, Our Chair
The world can be a scary and daunting place for our young people growing up. The accepted reality we live in is a world of poverty, fear and violence. Low self-worth is further reinforced with mixed messages and peer pressure from social media presenting daily challenge for youngsters to be a certain person whose best is just not good enough. This can leave our children really conflicted about who they are and what matters in life. The Mustard Tree Trust (founded in 2002) works to readdress these struggles by bringing messages of love, hope and justice through the telling of stories from the Bible to show children the difference Christ's love can make to people's lives in a world of fear and pressure.
The focus of our work takes place in schools and our school's worker, Kirstine, is a welcomed and popular face across many of our schools in Morpeth. Her visits to school to lead assemblies and celebrations, running lunchtime clubs and developing positive relationships with staff and pupils across the year finally culminates in a huge celebration in the Summer Term with over 16 schools joining her and a team of volunteers at Brinkburn Priory for "Lifepath".
Over the coming year we will be looking to continue to develop our work in schools, finding out what our youngsters around Morpeth want and need and how we can continue to plant the smallest of seeds which lead to personal growth and potentially a vibrant and fulfilled life with a personal relationship with Jesus.
