This Holy Week North Breckland Youth for Christ is enabling young people to serve their local community in and around Dereham through social action projects, local radio and the public showing of their own Passion film.
On Good Friday North Breckland Youth for Christ (YFC)
will be premièring a short film featuring local young people in a modern day version of the Passion story. The showing will take place outside Costa Coffee
on Nelson’s Place
and will be repeated throughout the day for public viewing.
Dan Lawrence, Youth Worker for North Breckland YFC
said: “We are really pleased with how the film looks and the message that it brings. The film is 15 minutes long and we hope that it will engage young people in the Gospel message. We are happy to release the film prior to our public première for any youth workers or groups who wish to use it”.
The film is one of a series of projects that North Breckland YFC is organising during Holy Week. Young people in Year 7 and above will also be joining together for SOAK
, three days of social action serving communities across Breckland, organised alongside local churches.
From Tuesday April 15 - Thursday April 17
young people will meet together in the mornings, at the SOAK Café
in Trinity Methodist Church, Dereham
and then spend their afternoons doing projects in the local area, including running community cafes, gardening, litter picking and car washing.
Dan said: “We hope that SOAK will bless the communities the young people visit which will include Dereham, Swanton Morley, Shipdham, Barnham Broom, Scarning
During the week North Breckland YFC will also be enabling young people to run Breckfest Youth Radio
. The station will broadcast live from Tuesday April 15 – Thursday April 18, 7am-9pm

featuring entertainment, roving reports from SOAK projects and the latest music. You can also listen from the Network Norwich
On Good Friday Breckfest Youth Radio will be broadcast live from Costa Coffee on Nelson's Place from 9am – 4pm
where the Passion film will be premiered. The local churches Walk of Witness
