We currently have more opportunities for mission and evangelism amongst youngsters than we have volunteers to run with. The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
If there are suitable adults that love God, love youngsters and are willing to learn; then we have opportunities to serve between 7 and 9 on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or especially Friday evenings.

The Peace in the Park festival
Sheffield's free community arts festival - promotes peace and understanding by bringing together communities through artistic, musical and vocal expression.
Peace in the Park is organised by a group of artists, musicians, students, events organisers and other everyday Sheffield folk, working together in a not for profit collective.
The 2013 festival on Saturday 8th June 2013 will be the tenth Peace in the Park, which each year collects money for nominated causes. The festival is funded by money raised in advance, so look out for these fundraisers to help make the festival happen, and have a good old knees up too!
Want to get involved?
The event cannot happen without the stewards: people on the day need directing, helping and to be cared for.
If you would like to get involved with the stewarding/volunteering please don't hesitate to contact Kinder on firstname.lastname@example.org
You give 4 hours (10-2.15pm, 2-6.15pm, 6-10.pm) or more if you can.
We will give you some food, water and lots of thanks
