MS Melbourne Cycle

From the CY&YA committee
The CYYA committee (Children, Youth, and Young Adult) is made up of four volunteers (David Moorhouse, Anita Brown-Major, Catherine Drimmel and Rachel U’ren) and three staff members (Ian, Anika and Caitlin). We aim to encourage, support, and oversee the work with children, families and young adults in our community at BUC. We are keen to welcome new members to the committee and ask that you contact Anita if you are interested in joining our fun group.
Over the coming months we will farewell Anika Jensen from her two roles within the church, which have taken form as 10 hours a week dedicated to the student house and 8 for the BUC youth. She has been working in both these positions for the past three years. Anika will be finishing with us on the 6th of May and her work and all she has offered will be formally acknowledged during the service on this date.
Caitlin Mullen has filled the interim role of administrator for the children and families program (basically organising Sunday Morning Program) for the past 6 months. We thank Caitlin for her work and wish her luck in her new position at a secondary college. Caitlin will be finishing her formal role within the church at church camp at the end of April.
We have been unsuccessful in finding a permanent pastor in the children and families role and are currently considering what options we have in this important ministry area. Please consider asking anyone in your networks if they know of someone who might be called to work with children and families.
While Church council is contemplating our options we are asking for expressions of interest for the role of the interim Children and family worker. Please contact Anita for the job description.
