A chance for the community to be heard
Students from Aylsham High School and the church’s own Youth Group were on hand to give tech advice to people with laptops, mobile phones and tablets.
People from their 20's through to their 80's turned up to draw on the wisdom of the tech savvy young people whilst enjoying a cup of Fairtrade Coffee and delicious homemade cakes.
Revd Jack Branford, Curate of the Aylsham Team of Churches said:
“It was a really fantastic morning; the Church was packed with people from all generations who were learning and laughing together. In our contemporary world, which so often seems to be divided starkly along generational lines, it was incredibly heartening to see such fantastic intergenerational cooperation. We are particularly thankful for the young people from Aylsham High School who were a real credit to their school and community in the way they patiently helped so many people.”
Jean St Clair, who attended the event said:
“It was a great morning, thank you so much to the young students who helped me to free loads of storage on my iPad and sorted out my twitter accounts. It was a great idea and the church was really busy.”
The money raised that morning went towards Aylsham Parish’s Churches Leprosy Mission Appeal which has so far helped to raise over £2200 for Purulia Hospital in India.
The event was such a success that the organisers are already planning another Tech Café which will take place in the near future. Keep checking the Aylsham Parish Church website for more details.
