"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity" ~ 1 Timothy 4:12
By the grace of God, the youths of St. Thomas Mar Thoma church, Bristol experienced a blessed and prosperous year. There were regular meetings held on the fourth Friday of every month and youths met occasionally after church service in the vestry. This year we bid Farewell to our dear Mr Karrol and family. Six youths from our church took part in the Youth Conference Hosted by St James MTC, London. Youth Fellowship Committee conducted a Christmas Charity collection called Santa’s Gift.
The amount collected will be contributed to youths that need financial support in their education or medical treatment purposes. One of our active youth members Mrs Simi Chacko entered into a new phase of her life. Last year during the Summer, we went out as youths for a game and dinner with our respected Achen and Family. During the boxing day we had a Bring and Share Lunch and watched a meaningful theme based Christian movie at our parsonage. This year’s European Central Youth Retreat organised by the central Youth Fellowship Committee was hosted by our parish. Congratulations to our Youth Fellowship team of our church (Jinu Varughese, Alan Saji John, George Varughese and Dona Analyse ) for winning second prize for the quiz competition held on that day.
