Focus on relationships and quality - not buildings

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

Relational youth ministry is quoting the Bishop of Chelmsford speaking to a Grand Committee of the House of Lords:

“My heart sank a little when we spoke of building youth centres. Those of us in the faith communities and the churches have been involved in work with young people for a long time.

“Buildings are important, and churches sometimes struggle with that, but it is the relationships and the quality of the work that are really important. We must be focused."

Great thoughts, lets hope his comments lead to something positive.
