What we have done

what we are doing

what we intend to do

In regard to:
 
 
1. Youth Spirituality:
As a District: We have successfully held two regional come-togethers. The far east region held a Wesley Day celebration weekend.
There are revivals at circuit level and a constant call from the District into a deepened spirituality.
We intend to continue with the come togethers as a vehicle for deepening spirituality at District level. We are however aware that this work is constantly facilitated at Circuit level.
2. HIV/AIDS: 
A Co-ordinator was elected to facilitate work pertaining to HIV/AIDS.
We work hand in hand with the District HIV/AIDS call group in dealing with problems linked to HIV/AIDS
Peer counselor training
3. Poverty  alleviation:
We are constantly on the lookout for poverty affected members in the district. This is done through circuits and  the regional come together where we reach out to the needy
Develop self sustaining and income generating projects in poverty stricken communities.
4. Children’s  Ministry
Completion of District curriculum
Focus on the spirituality of teachers and lesson preparation
Translation of the curriculum for accessibility by all our members
5. Youth unity
Formation of 5 entities in the District
Doing work on growing the YAM and Metthsoc
Develop and integrate entities at Circuit level.
Bring youth groups on board in the District.

YOUTH STRUCTURE THAT OPERATE WITHIN THE DISTRICT:

  • Wesley Guild.
  • Children ministry
  • Youth Groups
  • Young Adult Movement
  • Methssoc.

HOW THE STRUCTURES OPERATE IN RELATION TO ONE ANOTHER

The structures meet annually at regional level, quarterly at district Council meetings, annually at District Youth camp and annually at District Youth Synod. All these platforms afford the entities time to integrate, to deal with issues pertaining to the youth, to share ideas and knowledge.

PROGRAMS PECULIAR TO OUR DISTRICT?

The Anti-Bias program is unique to the Central District. A number of our young people have been trained and are in turn facilitating this program. The program seeks to unearth the stereotypes, prejudices and Bias’ that we posses as individuals with the aim of healing relationships and celebrating our diversity. This is a great resource to the entire District and to the Youth Unit

developMENT OF YOUTH WORK  in OUR DISTRICT (strategies)

The District continues the process of collating data and forming a data base of the skills at our disposal through the skills audit. This strategy is aimed at using the skill available to us as a District and as circuits instead of using outside sources. The need for leadership training is constant and ever before us. It is for this reason that this District will hold a leadership training camp annually for the purpose of sharing and transferring knowledge and keeping ourselves up to date with regards to church policies.
.
The survey conducted in the District has opened our eyes to the core needs of the youth that we are working with. The greatest of them being unemployment, poverty and a need for psychological and spiritual support. This survey has now become a direction pointer as to where our focus of energy should partly be as a District.Another development that we are looking forward to as a district is that of the formation of Metthsoc in all the universities within the boundaries of our District. We are also working hard at establishing YAM in circuits and at bringing youth groups on board.

CHALLENGES

We are still struggling to integrate the unit. There is a strong racial imbalance in the representation to all events and this is the direct result of the fact that even geographic circuits are not racially intergrated.Our challenge is that of dialoguing with youth across racial borders to listen to the needs and wants of those who do not attend with an aim of accommodating these where possible.The challenge of integration is not just a racial challenge; it is also an entity challenge. How do we make the youth unit structure functional and productive at circuit level?

STATISTICS

The District data base is under compilation.
