Lent Appeal

Lenten Appeal 2019 – Young Lewisham Project (YLP)


The Young Lewisham Project was established in 1974 and, working with local schools and colleges, provides young people aged 13-19 with much needed opportunities to improve their lives. A small team of staff and volunteers run: educational training courses, off-site activities and after school and holiday activities. Some courses include, motorcycle mechanics, bicycle maintenance, literacy and numeracy support, gardening, life skills, preparing for work and/or return to full time education. A YLP Representative will be doing a brief talk during the Sunday service on 10 March and 14 April.


We hope to raise between £4k to £5k and Lenten Appeal donations would be used to help YLP continue their valuable project work with the young people in the Lewisham and Forest Hill area. White Lenten Appeal envelopes for donations are available in the pews. Mission Committee.
