Friday night I went to help out at the Highwoods Youth Cafe run by a couple of local churches. It’s been going for two years following a schools week in early 2006 with Collective. The leaders are an amazing bunch and are having to work with what might be termed challenging young people. But there have been some moments of real breakthrough, like the lads who made first time commitments a few months ago and the 25 who chose to spend time in a weekend prayer room locally.
I then had to pop into town for 10pm to help set up Street Pastors for the evening. I wasn’t on the rota for the night so although I didn’t go out I did stay for a bit to join in with the prayer. We’re recruiting again to get the numbers up to the point where we can send out teams on Saturdays as well as Fridays.
