Dear Blessed Families!
We want to warmly invite you to the upcoming European 24+ Matching Support Workshop. The WS is designed for Second Generation and Jacob Children who are at least 24 years old and their parents. It is tailored to the needs of young adults in this age group who would like to be matched and blessed.
There will then be separate programmes for parents and young people, which will be a mixture of talks and activities to enable people to get to know each other in a supportive environment. There will also be opportunities to receive support in using the website and developing your blessing profile, and time to discuss personal situations with members of staff on a one-to-one basis. There will be matching supporters, BFED and ESGD staff available for personal talks and consultations.
Matching Support WS is not a Blessing Preparation WS (as one of the requirements to attend the Blessing). It is designed to help and support successful Matching and its content is primarily focused on it.
