Partnership with Label of Love
As in the 2019/20 school year, we have again partnered with another local Christian charity, Label of Love for the current 2020/21 school year. Until school was closed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, their workers Petra and Adam had been delivering a range of activities in person at South Hunsley School as well as looking out for new opportunities to serve the students and staff. Activities included a lunchtime club and mentoring support for students where requested by the school. They were also leading a Tuesday teatime youth group which met at St Helens Church, Welton.
As you can imagine, there was little we were able to do to support the school during “lockdown” and beyond last spring and summer terms, other than keep in touch and offer any support they might need. One thing Adam and Petra were able to do was produce some YouTube videos to circulate to schools in terms of remote support. You may be interested to check this link to see some of the new videos ! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdNrChtU-Jc1j5cozso7mGw
However we are praising God that the school have again welcomed our support this new school term, on behalf of the local church family in the Hunsley area. Petra and Adam have worked with school on safe ways to support students and staff “in person” and since the beginning of November have again started up lunchtime mentoring support for students where requested by the school. We are praying that this will lead to more opportunities to serve the school.
We are really pleased that the Tuesday teatime youth group, which had met at St Helens Church, Welton, has started up again, but now on Zoom.

Hunsley Christian Youth Trust (HCYT) was established in 2009 and is a charity committed to working in schools to provide support to Christian Unions, help students making the transition from Primary to Secondary, provide lunchtime activities and a range of other schools work. We also work with local churches to bring young people together and to support churches in their work with young people through training and resourcing where required. We are pleased to be associated with Scripture Union.
Our sponsoring churches currently include All Saints North Ferriby, St Barnabas Swanland, the parish of Elloughton and Brough with Brantingham, and All Saints South Cave. We are keen to work in partnership with churches of all denominations across the Hunsley area.
God is clearly using HCYT to change the lives of the young people in the Hunsley area for the better. Faith has been deepened through involvement of the Christian Union or equivalent school groups, and space for asking questions has been given to enable young people to find out more about Him and, even, take their first steps towards having a relationship with Him.
Our objective is to advance the Christian Faith and education, among young people and children particularly in schools and in collaboration with local churches in the Hunsley area of East Yorkshire.
