Raising young leaders

Encouraging young leaders has been one of the strands explored in ‘Deepening Discipleship‘, a collaboration between the Church of England and Messy Church that is currently in its pilot stage. This is a great opportunity for older children and teenagers to develop their leadership skills.

BRF’s Messy Church team facilitated a Young Messy Leaders’ Christmas Zoom last week. This was an initiative from a 13-year-old leader from Herefordshire, who was joined by two more young leaders to co-host a small online group, bringing together others from as far away as Australia and South Africa to have fun and encourage each other in their ministry.
