Re-Act is a group for young people of all or no faiths to explore what the Christianity is and its relevance in their lives. We meet every Thursday lunch-time in ICT Room 2 (Business Studies/ICT Corridor) between 12.35 – 1.15 pm. Feel free to bring a packed lunch or come and collect an early lunch pass from Mrs MacMillan at interval to ensure you can join us promptly to make most of our short 40 minutes together.
The group first started over 2.5 years in Gourock High with approximately 20 -25 pupils from S1-S6 coming along each week. We are really looking forward to welcoming old and new members from Clydeview in S1-S6 this year! The group is a joint venture with Inverclyde Youth for Christ staff Jen Paton and Jill Galbraith (both ex pupils of Greenock Academy) who also help organise the weekend away event for pupils in S1-S4 to Fort Rocky.
S6 pupil Seonaid, who has been with the group since the start, has put in her own words below what we do each week – but feel free to come along and see for yourself! The group starts Thursday 8 September 2011.
Every Thursday lunch time at Clydeview Academy Re-Act takes place for S1-S6 pupils to come along and participate in games, quizzes and a wide range of fun activities whilst learning about God. Despite the short time of 40 minutes Re-Act always his on the important issues in the Bible that are relevant to our teenage lives. Re-Act is for some people the only place they ever hear about God, and with it being aimed at teenagers, it reaches out to us and lets us see that God can help us through issues we may face.
The warm, friendly atmosphere makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable, really helping young people to get close to God and open their hearts and minds to Christianity. For lots of reasons people can’t get to Church on a Sunday, especially young people, and therefore I feel that without Re-Act, there would be a missed opportunity to tell teenagers about the wonders of God and what He can do for you now and throughout the rest of your life. I’m extremely thankful for the help it has given me myself, but it’s also an inspiration to see other young people come to God and experience Him in their lives.
