Youth Work

Work with Children and Families in Pickering Methodist Church

My name is Karen Pattison and I am employed by the church to work with children, young people and families.

I am in contact with the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides and used to help run the youth club WOW club, which met on alternate Wednesdays, but doesn’t meet at present.

I also go into St Joseph’s school on Friday afternoons to help the children prepare an act of worship and go into the Junior school to help with Open the Book, which acts out Bible stories in assembly.

I am in the Library every Friday morning from 10.00 for the Tots’ Story Time at 11.00 and to talk to parents and children there and am at Family Cinema every month to chat to the families who come to this.

I arranged visits to our church and St Joseph’s Catholic Church for year 8 pupils at Lady Lumley’s earlier this year, but hope that we can do many other exciting projects once the building work has finished.

All this is only possible through the power and grace of God and the support of His people, the Church. If you are interested in finding out more about the Church, contact me Karen: 01751 473004
