Bishop Andrew has encouraged young people taking part in this year’s ‘On the Move’ to think of themselves as key workers for God. The Bishop was speaking during ‘Worship Wind-up’ which launched Day Two of this year’s Diocesan youth outreach programme. ‘On the Move’ has itself moved online this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
+Andrew told the watching young people that all of us were key workers in God’s kingdom. “God has a plan for your life,” he said, “and he wants to bless you and use you.” As the teenage participants focus on today’s theme, key workers, the Bishop suggested they consider a number of activities for the afternoon ‘Get Moving’ section of the programme. He said they could give a gift to a key worker, to show how highly they were thought of; they could make a ‘Thank You’ poster for a shop of business which had served the community throughout the lockdown; and they could bake a cake or buns for a key worker, as a sign of appreciation.
Thursday evening’s ‘Wind -down’ programme includes an online quiz.
