Tolladine Mission - St Barnabas, Worcester

`$casestudy.title`
  • Project Name: The Tolladine Mission

  • Church: St Barnabas, Worcester
  • Diocese: Worcester
  • Grant Amount: £100,000

Summary:

Scaling up a successful existing project in the Diocese of Worcester based around a mission community in an area with pockets of exceptional multiple deprivation, by employing a full-time mission leader.


Background:

In one project the Tolladine Mission is working with young people who have in the past rejected school. The aim is to build their self esteem through practical activities such as creating a community garden. They have acquired a real pride in what they have achieved and are now attending the Technical College with attendance rates of over 90% (as compared to 35% for the previous year group). Other work with older teenagers includes the regular use of a youth bus equipped for coffee and counseling and an annual youth camp. There is a growing congregation of largely primary age children who enthusiastically attend church on their own. The church has developed a special interactive Eucharist service with them.
