Notes from video talk

 

We’ve looked through the different resources and articles on the web to help churches think about their year 13 students moving out of school.

Resources

Presbytality

Presbytality is about connecting young people on the move with churches they can relate to in their new home. But mostly, it’s just about offering good old fashioned hospitality, linking young people up with a youth worker who will take them out for a coffee, give them a present, and be someone they can catch up with in a new city.
