Students Needing a Good Home

Next week we have a group of about 40 Newfrontiers year team students staying with us. Whilst they're here they'll be having lectures, Catrina and I will be doing a Q&A with them on what it's like to lead a church and they'll be scaring themselves silly at Oakwood. We've got places to stay for most of them, but Sue Ranger still needs homes for about 8 of them. I've included below information from Sue on exactly what is required. If you are able to help then please can you contact Sue directly, either via email or by phoning her on 01344 828808.

Thanks so much,

Simon.

Tuesday 12th April
The students arrive at Kerith in the morning and have a full day of training here.  This finishes at 5pm and the students will then depart to hosts (either in their own cars or hosts will collect from The Kerith Centre) and will eat at host houses and spend the evening with them.

Wednesday 13th AprilThe Students will require breakfast in the morning and possibly a packed lunch ( this can be arranged direct with them) .  They then need to come back to Kerith by 9am for training day 2, either in their own cars, or walk if that is possible or with hosts.  On the Wednesday they have a longer day and will also go to Oakwood,  and have a pub meal for dinner before a Q&A Forum with Simon.  After the forum they will head back to the pub for a drink together and then back to hosts - the trainees will have instructions to have clarified with hosts the time they'll be home, and how they will be getting home.

Thursday 14th AprilThe Students will require breakfast in the morning and possibly a packed lunch ( again this can be arranged direct with them) .  They then need to come back to Kerith with all their belongings by 9am for training day 3, either in their own cars, or walk if that is possible or with hosts. They will depart direct from Kerith at the end of the day

Some have cars and some don’t and the age range is 19 -30, male and female and you can have as many as you like.!  Once I have all the trainees allocated I will circulate a list so that you can see who else is hosting so the you could arrange to share lifts too.

If you are able to help please could you let me know the number you can accommodate, the preferred gender if you have one and whether you could do lifts I would be very grateful.  There is some funding available to help with costs in the region of £7:50 per night (£15 for the 2 nights).

Thanks,

Sue
