Methodist Youth President Visit

At the Church
The Methodist Youth President, Jasmine Yeboah, visited Halmer End Methodist Church on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th April. After arrival on Thursday she met members of the Church for a chat over lunch.

That evening Jasmine took part in a 'Courageous Love' Messy Church attended by 60 children and adults, and talked to everyone about her faith journey as a Christian. The activities were arranged and supported by the Guides, Brownies, Rainbows and their leaders.

At the Schools
On Thursday afternoon Jasmine visited Sir Thomas Boughey Academy in Halmer End and talked with about 230 students at an Assembly. Jasmine shared with the students the different way of life in our area here, compared to the area of Tottenham were she lives. Jasmine encouraged the students to show 'Courageous Love' in their relationships with other people and on social media.

On Friday afternoon Jasmine visited the Richard Heathcote Community Primary School in Alsagers Bank and spoke to an Assembly of about 160 children following her theme of 'Courageous Love'. The children were keen to answer Jasmine's questions about football and Easter as well as other subjects.

At BBC Radio Stoke
On Friday morning Jasmine visited BBC Radio Stoke for an interview and this was broadcast on Sunday morning 7th April just after 8.00 am. During the broadcast, the interviewer Stuart George said "there are some people who light up a room when they enter it and Jasmine is one of those people". The interview is at the bottom of this article.

At the Methodist Book Centre in Hanley
After visiting BBC Radio Stoke Jasmine called in to the Methodist Book Centre to meet the staff and see the work of the book shop.

At Englesea Brook Chapel and Museum
From the Book Centre, Jasmine went to the Englesea Brook Chapel and Museum where the Project Director Dr. Jill Barber gave a conducted tour through the Museum, starting with the Cemetery where the grave of Hugh Bourne is placed (Hugh Bourne being one of the founder members of the Primitive Methodist Church.) It was very interesting to read the statistics on the grave stone about the number of people who joined the Primitive Methodists, many of them becoming Preachers who served throughout Great Britain and America.

In the Museum we saw displays and artefacts which reminded us of the part women played in the early Primitive Methodist Movement. We saw, too, many examples of the social impact of the Primitive Methodists.

Farewell to Jasmine
What a joy and privilege to belong to the Methodist Church, which supports children and young people in such a positive way, giving them encouragement along life's journey — and especially what a joy to meet this year's Youth President Jasmine Yeboah. Many thanks to all those who helped arrange and support this visit!
