Boost: "Let's talk about sex" event

Romance Academy are coming to Felixstowe for an evening as part of their 'Let's Talk About Sex!' Tour next month.

This evening event is designed specifically for youth workers, mums, dads, carers and church leaders, and will cover all the hot topics along with advice on how to chat to teens (and future teens) about sex and sexual health. Romance Academy are a great charity tackling the issues of sexuality from a Christian perspective.
It would be great to see some teams from local churches come along- this is a big issue for young people at the moment, and the better resourced we are in this area, the better we will be at guiding young people in the right direction.
Tuesday 18th September, St John's Orwell Road, 7-30pm.
Speaker: Rachel Gardner from Romance Academy and BBC2's No sex please, we're teenagers.

If you were able to forward this to any interested parents of teens or future teens, that would be much appreciated.  Please contact Josh at Boost if you need further details.

Venue: Costa, Hamilton Road Felixstowe.
When: Start Date Thursday Sept 13th 7.30pm
Then Once a month on 2nd Thursday

Aim: to reach out to those who don’t/won’t come to church especially lost generation (30-50yrs old group) although all are welcome

How: Through meeting people where they are, discussing everyday issues in an informal relaxed atmosphere, using some aids such as newspaper cuttings, poems, (nothing too heavy)
Being willing to admit don’t know answers, proving Christians are just normal people who make mistakes, enjoy everyday things.

Future: Maybe become weekly?
Alpha or something similar?
Where ever God leads!

So if you feel you would be able to help just come along, if you know some one who you think it will help tell them or even invite them to come with you, or if you have questions them come and ask them yourself.   If you can’t do anything else please pray for this venture as it is only through the will of God we can succeed, so your prayers are importan.
