REV is back!

There are a few changes. Grace has left Burley to go and work full time in London…and everyone is another year older. Over the next few months we are trying a new pattern. 

Once a month Dan Eaton is coming up from Sheffield to help us host a “Retro computer console and other games night”. Dan first came to help us do this in the Festival 2013, and is a deputy head teacher in Sheffield. 

Once a month we have “Issue of the month”. This can be any topical issue, chosen by the young people of REV. By the time you are reading this we will have discussed weddings and marriage. Next month we will be thinking about Halloween. 

Finally, once a month Rev moves into church for “Holy Space”. Holy Space aims to “create the space in which you may find that you have already been found by God.” You may remember we tried a similar worship event last December. Holy Space includes a short reflective time of worship that will often combine the traditional with the contemporary, and reflect the season of the year. Holy Space will take place at 6pm on the first Sunday of the month. All are welcome, not just REV. 

REV members who are aged 14 and above will be going to an evening event at York Minister on the 14th October. This is to celebrate ten years of the Church of England Youth Council. CEYC is made up of young people from every diocese in the UK and both mirrors and is part of general synod. However the event we are going to is a party, with giant inflatables, bands, birthday cake etc.
