Young West Indies Anglicans to be Agents of Change
8 August 2016
Building on the success of the Church in the Province of the West Indies third Provincial Youth Gathering, held in Grenada from 16 to 23 July, the Province and the Anglican Alliance hosted two in-depth training events for 30 young people from across the West Indies.
Half the group explored the ideas of Church Community Mobilisation (CCM); the other half experienced an introductory workshop on the Agents of Change curriculum. Over five days the groups reflected and planned how they could transform their churches and communities through a community project and then how to put their plans in to action.
Supporting the empowerment of youth is a global priority of the Anglican Alliance, having been identified as a key priority in all of its regional consultations.
