Lives and community are greatly enriched by people giving of their time to enhance the lives of others. As young people walk alongside adults who give of their time, to mentor them and support different activities, they not only benefit from those experiences but also learn what it is to be a contributor to community. Each week the newsletter highlights groups and individuals who give generously of their time to enhance the lives of people within and beyond this community. In addition to this there are parents and staff who constantly gently guide young people through both words and actions. This constancy of experience provides a fertile space for young people to grow well.
Throughout all of this, God walks gently beside us, guiding us and providing times of rest and rejuvenation. Our lives are enriched when we pause and be still in His presence through prayer. As we come together as community and are still in His presence, it gives us the time to centre and recharge.
