A successful evening with seven churches represented. The evening explored the progress of those churches with either just a few children or none at all and the results were very positive.

From Hasland Methodists new Youth Group to the Easter activities at all the churches some very good ideas were shared. There were many examples of good teaching materials also shared around during the meeting.
