On Thursday I spent the day at the Association of Black Methodist Youth conference.

The day began with 2 different, but equally brilliant speakers. Both of who spoke beautifully and relevantly to the group of young people who where there.

After lunch the young people chose an activity to do, from raft building to rounders and other activities. I had the opportunity to find out a bit more from the ABMY exec and other young people who were still around about what the ABMY does and what they want to see in the future. During the conversation the young people came out with some amazing points and ideas that I can now use to influence the direction of the work of things like Youth Assembly, Breakout and the general work of the Children and Youth team of the Methodist Church.

I had a lovely day, with some amazing young people and even got a free t-shirt!
