"I am the vine; you are the branches." — John 15:5

The Branches: Youth Group

The Branches: Youth Ministry: Our mission statement, incorporating ideas written by the youth is: St. Helen’s Anglican Youth Ministry, “The Branches”, intentionally develops friendships and character, and grows in the Spirit within a safe environment while having fun and reaching out to the community.

The Branches: The youth group meets on Sundays at 10:45 and have much exciting activity planned for the New Year. Recently, we enjoyed preparing the cards for Hope for the Future again and have managed a successful CLAY 2020 fundraising bake sale for Christmas – thank you to all who contributed or bought our goodies and to Paul Foster(Poppa Bean) for providing the excellent coffee.  We are delighted that Lizzy Jones, who was an active member of our group until she aged out, has been appointed as Youth representative for General Synod in Vancouver next year. This is something for us to celebrate! Support and spiritual nourishment of our youth clearly makes a difference in their lives and in the life of the Anglican Church as a whole. We pray that continues!
