Pressing on towards... Crawley and Croydon...

Nomad has spent the last couple of weeks in preparation to hit the road.  Next week we head to Crawley again for a week of team building and work with Street360. From here we will travel on to Croydon YFC for what looks set to be an action packed week of schools work, detached work and youth events. Last week we visited the legendary Jon Tattz and his youth group at St. Johns Harborne. The young people loved the cage (well they appeared to be having fun!) and Sammy B scored a legendary nutmeg which will live long in the memory!  Joking aside it was great to connect with such a great bunch of young people and we pray that God will bless them outrageously over the coming weeks and months! 

Tomorrow we will be rocking up to Zion youth club in Halesowen for what looks set to be a quality night spending some quality time with some quality young people! 

Prayers for a renewing of strength and maintenance of high energy levels over the next two weeks would be really good. We would also ask that you pray for safety and protection as we travel, in the practicalities of setting up the cage and safety for the young people who play in the cage. We pray that God will do amazing things over the next couple of weeks in the lives of young people in Harborne, Halesowen, Crawley and Croydon! Thank you for your prayers and please do keep up the good work!

Beyond the walls of Bodelwyddan Castle

Nomad are back after a well-deserved Christmas break and looking ahead to a new year and a new school term. Fresh from conference at Bodelwyddan Castle Nomad are refreshed, inspired and refuelled ready to hit the road and relevantly take good news to the young people we meet.

Drawing on the themes of conference Nomad are excited to be a small part of the jigsaw which makes up the body of Youth for Christ. At the start of this new year Nomad are studying the key aspects of discipleship which Paul so passionately and fervently expresses in his New Testament letters. We are exploring what these themes mean for us as individuals and collectively as a sports ministry team. We want to build on the ceilings of previous Nomad teams and strive to be a team with hearts set apart for Christ as Lord as we witness to the young people we meet. In all this we are reminded of the hope we have in Christ Jesus.

“Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining for what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 3: 13-14)
