Next Gen Review of 2020

2020 has been a big year for everyone with immense upheaval, uncertainty and change to the normal way of “doing church”. Youth and kids work in particular has suffered a massive blow in terms of the physical activities Next Gen workers across the region have been able to do. Many youth and kids workers were furloughed from the posts for a huge chunk of the year and those that weren’t were extremely limited in how they were able to support and reach out to the next generation in our area.

However, God is never fazed. Despite lockdown, churches across the area have continued to work together to support children and young people in all four boroughs of the Black Country and we’re excited to celebrate that with a video which highlights just some of the ways that we’ve been able to continue to pursue the next generation together this year – TOGETHER.

We hope it blesses you to know that God is still on the move and is working in and through the next generation in this region.
