Youth debates, BLanguage, and Co-op Causes
Even though the UK is in yet another lockdown, that still hasn’t stopped CYP supporting young people. We are still continuing to offer guidance and support in small groups, 1-1’s, and outreach on youth club evenings. Any organised events or activities with larger groups will be suspended until further notice. With that said, we are still making sure that our members are keeping busy, and last week two CYP members helped host the annual youth debate with Islington Faith Forum. In this hour-long debate, Armani Malone and Antonette Bowen gathered around with five other young people with different beliefs to discuss how their faith has been like during the pandemic. With Antonette mediating the panel and Armani handling the technical side of the debate, the young people managed to get a very interesting conversation going. As they debated, the young people at CYP supported them by tuning into their live feed and offering questions for the panel to answer. It was a great evening as we managed to hear young people’s perspective and insight on social issues from a religious and non-religious point of view.
