The Well is the network for all those working with children and young people in the Methodist Church. It is open to all whether paid or voluntary. The Well aims to provide networking opportunities, training and retreats to help support those working with children and young people in a range of settings. Members of The Well receive a newsletter three times a year and regular emails keeping people informed of the latest events, opportunities and information from the Children and Youth team. There is a dedicated section on the national Methodist website for The Well offering a range of information, advice and guidance. Joining The Well is free and is done via the worker page: www.childrenandyouth.org.uk/workerNational Methodist Youth Website: www.childrenandyouth.org.uk
The District is fully aligned with the principles of encouraging and empowering young people to participate at all levels of the church. A number of questions still need to be answered by the Connexion and proposals need approving by DPG before further activity takes place.
