Glitterballs, Treat, schools ministry, New Day, prayer, hot chocolate, games, Taste, testimonies: I'm sure many of you, like me, have a multitude of good memories from the 15+ years which East Norfolk Youth for Christ (previously known as Unite) has been serving the young people of Great Yarmouth.

ENYFC 11-2021 

It has touched our lives and the lives of our friends, children or grandchildren, as well as countless young people we might never meet. Most recently Amilcar (Youth Worker) has been a regular presence in Great Yarmouth Charter Academy, providing Christian support and care to young people and staff

Amilcar recently shared with me a snapshot of what life is like in his role, which illustrates some of the opportunities and challenges of the work:
"As I walked to the football pitch with the young people, a good friend of one of the young people that comes to our bible study said, "Sir, do you believe in Heaven and Hell?" I answered that I did and then asked back, "What about you, do you believe in Heaven and Hell?" The young person answered, "I don't. I think we are in a simulation". As I tried to explore this idea of life on earth being a simulation by asking the young person what it meant by life on earth being a simulation, the time was up and the young person was not able to finish explaining what he meant by our life on earth being a simulation. I was able to pick up on the theme the following day at the bible study"

Amilcar reflected that "sudden faith questions to be explored within a very limited time frame. Yet I’m grateful to be among them and scratch the surface of some of their most pressing questions"

But we can't be complacent - ENYFC needs your support in order to continue doing it's important work. At their recent AGM it was announced that due to the lack of available trustees in the local area, the governance of ENYFC would temporarily be taken on by Norwich Youth for Christ. However Nick Blanch, who is the Director of Norwich Youth for Christ writes that their "primary desire is to see ENYFC become self-sufficient again"

Could you be involved in making this a reality? ENYFC needs people who will support with volunteering, praying and giving as well people who can help steer its future under God's guidance
