OUR YOUNG PEOPLE

Welcome to the best section on the website! - OUR YOUNG PEOPLE. WE IGNORE THEM AT OUR PERIL BECAUSE THEY'LL BE LOOKING AFTER US WHEN WE NEED IT MOST!!

This part of the website belongs to our young people, from the very young to those setting out on life's adult journey.

I hope it makes you laugh, cry, rejoice and ponder. Whatever it does, you should know that The Waterside Churches are on your side and you are one of us. You belong to our family and, most importantly, God's family. 

Check out the Holiday Club button for details about an exciting start to the summer holidays. 

OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES: I'm 81 so naturally my arms are a bit wrinkly. My 3 year old grandson was with me one day when he suddenly said: "Oh Nan, look, your arms are dropping off." Bless him.

MY CHILDREN LAUGH AT ME BECAUSE: they think I'm stupid. I laugh at them because they don't know it's hereditary.

Let's try some deep thinking - A poem to ponder, by Yevgeny Yevtushenko

Born on July 18th 1933, he was a fourth-generation descendant of Ukrainians exiled to Siberia, He grew up in Moscow and a small town on the Trans-Siberian Railway. He was a novelist, essayist, dramatist, screenwriter, publisher, actor, editor, university professor, and director of several films. He died on April 1, 2017 (aged 83) in Tulsa,‎ ‎Oklahoma‎.


Telling lies to the young is wrong.

Proving to them that lies are true is wrong.

Telling them that God’s in his heaven

and all’s well with the world is wrong.

The young know what you mean. The young are people.

Tell them the difficulties can’t be counted

and let them see not only what will be

but see with clarity these present times

Say obstacles exist they must encounter,

sorrow happens, hardship happens.

The hell with it. Who never knew

the price of happiness will not be happy.

Forgive no error you recognize,

it will repeat itself, increase,

and afterwards our pupils

will not forgive in us what we forgave.

–Yevgeny Yevtushenko.
