Saturday, 4 January - YWAM Prayer Meeting

Nathan Nov17

Frinton Churches have three young people volunteering with YWAM in Australia and New Zealand (Nathan Edgell, Alex and Jessica Bryant)! Alex is now married to Tori, a student at YWAM Toowoomba, Australia so we can pray for the four volunteers.

Please come and catch up with their latest news at this regular YWAM prayer meeting in St Mary’s Lounge at 9:30am.

YWAM's motto is Know God, make Him known. Nathan and the others have been involved in many different projects to engage with that aim.

We normally meet from 9.30am until 11am in the Lounge on the 2nd Saturday of each month and start the meeting with tea and cake!

21 - 23 February - Youth Trip to Abernethy

Abernethy NethybridgeSam & I are taking a group of Young people and their families to Abernethy Nethybridge, a Christian Outdoor Centre in Scotland in February 2020. There are currently 20 of us in the party. Sam, being a ski instructor, thinks we wouldn’t want to go for any longer than a few days.

We greatly value the youngsters in our church and to make it possible for them to go on this residential trip, we have run various events to raise enough money to cover the costs of the young people. We needed to raise a total of £2500 and we are so Abernethy Nethybridgepleased to say that we have hit our target!!

With Eva(!), Sam and I have already done a sponsored walk from Clacton Pier back to Walton (7 miles of walking!!) and some of those going on the trip did a whole day of car washing which raised £221!

There was a Quiz Night on Saturday, 7 September and we held a coffee morning on Saturday, 23 November which went incredibly well!

The young people have done so well in organising and running these events, we can’t wait to head up to Scotland on the 21 February.

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed and supported the young people this year as they were fundraising.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email. - Lauren
