    Calling Young Voices!

    We really liked this blog post from Phil Ross, the Director of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Westminster, so we’ve replicated it below

    Recent chats around the dinner table have got Phil thinking – we need to hear the voices of more young people!

    Throughout Easter my two kids were at home; my son, Andrew, back from university for a couple of weeks and my daughter, Frances, back after a two-year stint at SPEC. It was wonderful to have them back in the fold – except for the increased washing etc!

    What did resonate were the family debates we had – often totally random but often truly meaningful, generally out of nowhere and usually involving my kids exhibiting wisdom beyond my expectations.

    Over dinner of late, we have discussed ISIS and the Christian crisis in the Middle East and last night it was the general election. With the general election, I was displaying typical middle-age jaundice – “What’s the point etc!” My children riled against me in unison – “You have to vote and even if your vote doesn’t lead to your chosen party taking power, it’s your duty to do you bit!” Crikey.

    This had me thinking; where are the young voices as we need to hear them. We need some commentators to help us build a youth debating chamber – to understand more about your approach to the world today, to life, to friendship, to your faith and to help us understand your views.

    I’m sure that there are plenty of young adults and young people who have a voice – my recent experience tells me that they have!

    WE NEED YOU.

    Drop us a line to youth@rcdow.org.uk or philross@rcdow.org.uk and we’ll get your views out into the open.

    Engaging Young People in the Political Process

    As you have probably noticed we are in the midst of a general election! While a few parties have bringing the voting age down on their manifestos the reality is that most of the young people you work with won’t be able to vote. But this doesn’t mean they have no role to play! We wanted to just take a few minutes to highlight some of the ways you can start to involve young people in the wider political process, read on for more!
