GIFT - Growing in Faith Together
G.I.F.T. – Growing In Faith Together
A fun-filled , faith-based programme connecting our young people to one another, to their Parish and to God.
As you know , we had to delay the start of the GIFT programme for 21/22. We are keen to get started now but will be doing so with a reduced number of weeks and a shorter time (one and a half hours ) To clarify for any of our new members the GIFT number matches the year your child is in at school....GIFT 1 for Year 8, GIFT 2 for Year 9 etc...
The dates are as follows at the new time of 6.30pm to 8pm;
GIFT 5: 7th and 14th November. (2 weeks only). We will be hosted for the first session by the Youth Faith group. There will be games and pizza!
GIFT 2: 21st November - 12th December (4 weeks)
GIFT 1: 30th January - 20th February (4 weeks)
GIFT 4: 20th March - 10th April (4 weeks)
GIFT 3: 8th May - 29th May (4 weeks)
There will be a GIFT information night on 3rd NOVEMBER at 7.30pm in the Parish hall for ALL volunteers past and present.
There will be an opportunity to begin the vetting process on this night. Everyone will need to be re-vetted due to the time lapse created by COVID.
WE CANNOT run GIFT without your help so please make every effort to attend. If, due to COVID , you have not yet begun as a volunteer please do come along. It’s wonderful and rewarding work. We have such tremendous young people in our Parish and we are really looking forward to connecting with them all again. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

In spite of the fact that we may feel small and unimportant.
