Update December 2017
"Young Crown" ends 2017, continuing strongly with initiatives well established, such as the Energize club on a Thursday and the various school operations, and looking forward to some new possibilities. In November we welcomed a team from Youth for Christ, a return visit (they came also in 2016), and it was exciting to be part of all they offered through the medium of music and dance. In December a trial Friday afternoon lunch and drop-in on the church premises has been begin: with the school day ending before lunch, it is hoped this might give secondary pupils a fun space to go to meet up with friends.
Young Crown SCIO depends very much on voluntary giving to sustain its work, but the great news at the end of 2017 was that we have gained match funding from "Go for It", a Church of Scotland fund set up to support creative and transformative ways of working through faith.
