"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” Youth Group, for youth aged 12-18, will continue to meet until mid-June and then resume on September 9th. On June 23rd, we are hosting “Spring into Summer”.  It will be an afternoon strawberry tea from 2-4 PM. Cost is by your generous donation.  Sign up sheets are at the church. Profits raised will benefit two organizations: First, the National Youth Project, “Right to Water”; and the second, Habitat for Humanity.  Please plan to come and support our Youth and two worthy charities. In August, three of our youth and two leaders will be attending the CLAY conference in Thunder Bay Ontario.  They are all looking forward to that event, and will provide a report in the fall. Please keep the youth of St. Helen’s Church in your prayers during the summer.

For further information about any aspect of the Branches Youth Group speak to any of the leaders:  Olivia Pelling, Ron Harder, Carol Danson, Chris Porter and Berthorie Beauvoir.

The Branches leadership team is always open for new leaders, if you feel that is your calling.  Speak to Olivia Pelling or the clergy for more information.

Thank you to our youth and to their leaders for their ministry in our parish.

All youth of the parish (12-18) are welcome.  For more details contact the Church office or any member of the leadership team: Olivia Pelling; Ron Harder; Carol Danson; Chris Porter or Berthorie Beauvoir.
