SAYT depends on the grace of God to keep us going, and we really do appreciate your prayer support. We believe in the power of prayer and have seen God answer our prayers in our work. Please let us know if you’d like to receive our brief monthly prayer points by email from email@example.com
Please note that whilst SAYT is a Christian Trust, we support young people unconditionally, regardless of their faith or background.
SAYT Prayer Letter: February 2020
Sunday GIVE THANKS for a different day, the opportunity to set aside time for worship PRAY for refreshment for any youth worker feeling particularly weary or discouraged.
Monday GIVE THANKS that Holly is settling in well PRAY FOR both her and Julie, that they will form a good team and for guidance about the possibility of starting a second evening of detached work, perhaps at Greatness.
Tuesday GIVE THANKS for all who work with youth at the various churches in the district PRAY for energy, patience and inspiration for all of them, and particularly remember Hope church’s special youth evening Pyromania on March 7th,
Wednesday GIVE THANKS the various training courses that are available through different local and national agencies PRAY that we make good use of these, particularly for Holly as she plans a formal training programme.
Thursday give thanks for our support from both Sevenoaks Town and District Councils.
PRAY FOR a good response to the opportunity for an SAYT group to attend the International Women’s Day event at St Julian’s on March 9th.
Friday GIVE THANKS for the good numbers at the first prayer breakfast of the year. PRAY that these will continue to provide a mainspring for our work. The next one is on February 29th(!).
Saturday GIVE THANKS that God often makes opportunities out of our difficulties PRAY that the difficult situation facing several local churches who have no regular rector/minister will encourage us all to work together, especially with our youth.
Thank you for your ongoing prayers
If you’d be willing to give up a small amount of your time each week or month to come with us as we meet with and encourage our young people, please do get in touch! You don’t need any qualifications, just a passion for seeing God work and a good sense of humour! In particular, we’re always looking for new volunteers to help our Thursday night detached work at Kemsing or Greatness Park on Tuesday.
We have upcoming Training Sessions for any prospective volunteers as below:
20th January 2021
22nd June 2021
We’re also on the look out for prospective trustees, to oversee the work of SAYT and seek to discover God’s will for our work. If you’ve got a passion for young people and some skills or experience to help, please get in touch!
Other ways of support are through making cakes, either for our regular work or special events. If you can think of other ways to support us, please get in touch!
SAYT depends almost entirely on donations – from churches in the Sevenoaks district, individuals and intrepid people who take on sponsored events to fund our work. Thank you all so much for your support!
If you or your church, family, business, club would like to fund our youth work please email Chris Stiven, firstname.lastname@example.org or download and return the response form to find out how.
SAYT relies on a few supporters, volunteers and trustees to promote our work. We need local people willing to be advocates or ambassadors – to tell others of our work: to champion young people and SAYT.
Please invite people to events, to volunteer, to watch our film or arrange a talk and film. Email us on email@example.com for more info.
