Established in 2009 by Rev. Paul Beautyman, eXp is a Christian youth project for young people across Cowal. Supported by churches and mainly funded by the Augusta Lamont Bequest it is open to every young person in Cowal. We have a Christian core to our work, believing the words of Jesus when he said:
“I have come to bring life, life in all its’ fullness” (John 10:10)
We do this by providing high-quality youth work that emphasises quality relationships, excellent programmes and a high commitment to helping every young person, who chooses to be involved, realise their full potential.
eXp meets young people where they are, out on the streets, in school, in the parks, at clubs and activities. We do not force the gospel but present it in a way which is both engaging and meaningful to young people.
We provide a wide range of opportunities that broaden the horizons of young people encouraging them to be more confident, think for themselves, engage positively with others, learn to be leaders and problem solvers, to be involved positively in their neighboorhoods and to keep moving in a positive direction as they grow and mature.
At the heart of eXp is an invitation;
- For young people and children to make new friends, have great adventures, develop their potential and eXplore the way of Jesus.
- For parents and carers to share in the growth of their children.
- For churches to help support, plan the work and share in the life of eXp.
- For schools, youth clubs or other agencies to join us with young people and children - our common cause.
