This past week, the YCW National Team visited the Sandbach YCW Group to say goodbye to outgoing Group President, Esther, and catch up on the work and future plans of the Group.
The Group has had a busy few years working on a long running action campaign to sponsor a refugee family through the Government’s resettlement scheme. They successfully raised the money, organised a suitable property and arranged for a range of support services to be in place for the family.
The action was supported by the Parish and Group Chaplain - Fr Michael Morton - all of whom praised the young leaders for their dedication and determination.
With the action successful and there being changes in the Group membership with some like Esther moving away to University, they now want to look at what else they can explore.
The National Team therefore discussed some of the next steps the young leaders could follow, including working through the new YCW Leadership Programme and building an action into that.
We look forward to hearing more about what Sandbach have in store in the future months.
