MCR Mentoring

March 29, 2022

We have a big heart for supporting and encouraging young people in TPC and God has blessed us with many gifts through this. 

Not all young people have the same opportunities, many children in Glasgow face challenges in their lives that make it difficult for them to succeed. The pandemic has been particularly difficult and disruptive and over 200 children will be starting S3 next year hoping for mentoring support. 

Mentoring has proven to be an effective way of linking young people with adults who can encourage them and help them reach their potential. 

MCR pathways is a programme which carefully links adults who want to help with young people who need their support. Mentors and young people are matched according to life experiences, personality and interests and mentors come from all walks of life. 

Mentoring takes place in secondary school for one hour a week and requires a sense of humour and lots of perseverance! It is such a rewarding way to spend an hour. 

Many employers support this programme and allow employees time off during working hours. 

Please speak to Alison Crawford 01360 620970 if you are interested and she will be happy to share her experiences or you can find out more here:

Boys’ Brigade

Volunteers urgently required! 

BB is in desperate need of new leaders this session! We are looking for people to volunteer a skill, etc., first aid, golf etc, and show and teach the boys that skill in 3/4-week blocks. This way we feel volunteering wouldn’t be as big a commitment!

Thanks again and hope to hear from you soon!  Sean Reilly.
