St Agnes - Events

The St. Agnes Anglican Church Youth Council's annual Thanksgiving Service took place on Sunday 27th October, 2013 at the St. Agnes Anglican Church in St. James. The theme portrayed was 'Forward Ever in God's Service'.  The chief celebrant was our very own Rev'd. Marsha Joseph.  Fortunately on this same day The Girl Guides Association, St. James District was celebrating their 100th anniversary of association and decided to have their service with us.

In preparation for this event, we did many activities. Every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday @ 4:30pm the group met to practice dance, singing and discussed the format of the service.  On Friday 25th - Saturday 26th October, 2013 both the youth and adult facilitators of the Youth Council gathered at Christ Church Rectory in St. Ann’s to participate in a brain relaxer and spirit building sleep over.  Here, we played bible games and did an activity to help us know each other better.  Rev'd. Pam did a meditation to relax us and set us in the frame of mind for the special day. We also practiced a little dance and singing. We left there with a positive attitude and mindset.

Everyone returned on Sunday morning ready to praise God.  The readings used were Jeremiah 14:7-10,19-22, Psalm 84:1-6, 2 Timothy 4:6-8,16-18 and the Gospel Luke 18:9-14. The sermon was done by Addiesya Perpignac (youth member) which was based on 1Timothy 4:1-12. Two dances were done: I Look to You and He Wants It All. The confession was done a bit different as we told the congregation to write their sins on a piece of paper and submerge it into a bowl of water on the altar to signify the drowning of their sins. In the end we sang the goodbye song from Out of the Box and everyone was invited to the hall for lunch.

It was a really great day!  We enjoyed ourselves with God in mind of course and would like to thank all those who participated and contributed in every way.

Being a fan of Gospel music, I was at dance practice one day going through songs. The idea immediately came to me for the theme for the Council’s annual concert where the members of the group can express themselves individually.  The initial idea of the concert was to let the members use their gifts and create an item for the concert that depicted what worship meant to them.

The preparation began and items were being prepared. When the facilitators/young people met to plan a final programme, one member had the idea that the concert could take the form of a storyline of a backsliding Christian girl.  This was enthusiastically agreed upon and the group proceeded with writing a script.  The concert took the form of a play where we showed how worship and using your gifts wisely can bring you back from an assumed point of no return.

The concert was about a church going girl who was convinced by her friends to take part in a well-known competition.  Whilst taking part in the competition she forgot all about her commitments as an Anglican and was quickly reminded when she appeared in church late and ran to the altar to perform.  After being praised for her perfect singing thus far, this was the first time she faltered.  In the end, instead of completing the competition she decided to go back to church and use her gifts to praise God…….

 During the play, items such as dance, mime, song and monologue were incorporated to convey the message to our audience.  All in keeping with the theme ‘Worship!’  The members of the group were able to portray and express what they all think worship could or should be.

The concert was well received by the persons who attended and the group was even asked to put on the concert at another venue.

We would like to again thank everyone who assisted and supported us for the event and we do look forward to continued support for our future events.

God has really blessed the group for the past 8 years and we thank him for giving us all the opportunity to walk, talk and live the young Anglican life.

The Youth Council started a new Second Sunday Youth Service on September 8, 2013 at 9:30 a.m.  This Service is an initiative of our Parish Priest, Rev’d Marsha Joseph.  It is a change from the normal Eucharistic Service, in that the young people are free to be innovative and use their creativity in order to encourage wider participation among the members. The Service is expected to be held monthly led by different young persons in collaboration with a core group. 

I was selected to conduct the first Service which was held on my birthday and also happens to be the day on which Virgin Mary's birth is celebrated. I drew from personal experiences to make the service somewhat more intimate. The service was interactive and the symbol for that Sunday was a heart made of unlit candles which was later transformed into a cross of lit candles. This was to signify that even though people don't think that Mary played an important role in the crucifixion story, one must keep in mind that Mary, even though Jesus was her son, (and every mother loves their child), she still accepted his personal sacrifice for our sins and so she let her son be nailed to a cross.  The love she had for God and for Jesus is what kept her going and gave her the strength to keep and proclaim her faith.
