Upper Room Later: Farewell Fiona

Sadly Fiona is leaving at the end of this term, the last weekend of term is Easter. We all felt it was important to say goodbye properly so we’ve made our farewell evening a week earlier.

If you have been connected to the youth work at Cairns over the last 5 years, a part of Cairns Road Baptist Church or a parent of someone who has been to our groups you are all welcome to join us say goodbye to our youth worker Fiona.

Upper Room News February 2016

Bellow is an email sent to parents this week about the current youth work provision at Cairns Road:

Good afternoon Parents and young people,

Over the last week I have been sharing news with the young people who have attended our groups here at Cairns Road Baptist Church. To bring everyone up to speed, please forgive the impersonal email.

Over the last year the Elders of the church have had the difficult task of discerning the right path regarding the churches finance. After many prayerful discussions it has been decided to reduce the youth work post at Cairns from full time to part-time.

It has been a difficult decision for me to take, but with the reduction of hours I have decided to take redundancy. I will be stepping down from the post at the end of March, so this term will be my last.

Over the last 4 and half years it has been a delight to work with wonderful teenagers from around the city, it has been an honour to get to know many of them well. A huge thank you for all the support you have given over the years.

It is important that I share the value Cairns has in the youth work, and the decision to reduce the youth worker’s role in hours was not a light one nor a reflection of the care and desire to encourage and support the young people who attend.

Over the next few months there is a team at Cairns who will be over seeing the development of the youth work including how to support what is currently being run. This term then is a term for asking questions, in our session times there will be opportunities for all who want to, to share what they’d like to see in the future in the youth work at Cairns especially qualities in a youth worker.

Look out for details about a farewell gathering on March 20th. For more details about the 20th click HERE.
Thank you once again

New Youth Service- Eden

EdenEventFlyer1Looks like it will be a great event and for those who are thinking about coming to Soul Survivor… Mike Pilavachi helps to run Soul and talks regularly there so you can have a taster of the summer on Sunday 31st January!

The Eden Event.
Sunday 31st January!

Mike Pilavachi (Soul Survivor) will be the guest speaker

6:30 – 7:30 : (Arrival) Café, Games, Chill space, BBQ – this space is kind of youth club style.

7:30 – 9:00 : Worship, talk, ministry.

9:00 – 10:00 : Many may choose to head home at this point but we didn’t want to rush people out of the door. So there will again be a space for young people to hang out with each other, share what God has been talking to them about and doing in them.
There’s a whole load more information about the event and the vision behind it on their website:
