Community Youth Work
What does youth ministry in a local church look like when it seeks to reach young people in the community?
In this episode, Adrian Reynolds is joined by Antonia Sheldrake (Youth & Children's Worker) and Andy Mossop (Youth & Community Worker) from East London Tabernacle Baptist Church to talk about the ways in which they reach the young people in the community of Tower Hamlets.
This episode was recorded on location at the 2023 Growing Young Disciples conference.
