Where are the Young People?

5. Making the first move

In building any connection with other people or developing any relationship, someone has to make the first move.  Here's an activity sheet with some simple suggestions for first steps that anyone could take towards young people 

Steps towards young people

Have sight of the list of suggested first steps you could take towards young people (on the second page of the resource) and invite people to consider:

  • Which do you already do?
  • Which feel impossible to do?
  • Which feel possible to do?

The United Reformed Church has had a focus on Walking the Way, living the life of Jesus today.  Invite people to look at the list again and ask:

  • Which of these do you think Jesus did to take a step towards people?
  • Which can you try doing over the next week / month / year?
