One year celebrations

November 26, 2014

Tonight we had some team training for our detached youth work team and realised it was our first birthday! We celebrated with cake.
As we did our termly review with StreetSpace, I was once again encouraged and blessed to see how far we’ve come. On a week by week basis it can sometimes feel like there’s little or no progress, especially in the winter when the weather is bad, its dark, and the streets and park is quiet.
However it was great to reflect on the relationships we are building, and see all the exciting little moments and stories we’ve shared with young people.
And to see those as part of a larger, unfolding story that will take many years to be complete. Some of these young people are still very young, 10 or 11.
I’m dreaming of the impact we can have by sticking around and still being present in their lives when they are entering adulthood, 8,9,10 years down the line…
