I am involved in running a CU at two local secondary schools. A couple of months ago one of the groups was really taking off with about 12 young girls (mostly non-Christian) coming along and getting stuck into the bible, while the other group was full of more experience Christians who just weren’t gelling and often not bothering to attend. How quickly things change: today we had only a couple of girls turning up for the ‘successful’ group, and 16 young people at the other group including a whole load of non-Christian friends, with a young person leading the session. It’s amazing but frustrating at the same time how quickly things can change in our work with young people.
