Street Reach Lisburn 08 will be launched by the Right Worshipful the Mayor, Councillor James Tinsley and his wife the Mayoress, Mrs Margaret Tinsley at a major youth event next Saturday evening (23rd February) at 7:45pm in Brownlee Primary School (Wallace Avenue).

Organised annually by Lisburn�s Christian youth leaders, Street Reach is now into its 3rd successful year. This year�s Street Reach will be held during the Easter break, from Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th March when young people will be serving 5 areas around - Knockmore and Tonagh; Hillhall and Low Road; Lambeg; Ballymacash and Lisburn City Centre. Once again they will be involved in painting fences, tidying gardens, litter picking, graffiti removal and all the usual Street Reach activities including street parties, children�s clubs, games and creative arts designed to demonstrate a practical display of Christian love throughout our City.

Youth leaders and young people from all churches in the Lisburn area are invited to attend the launch evening on Saturday night to hear about the vision and plans of Street Reach Lisburn 08, as well as pray for the city of Lisburn and worship God through some incredible praise. During the evening, applicants (year 11+) will be encouraged to sign up for what is planned to be yet another fantastic opportunity for young people to impact our local community.
