Sapphire Raves

Sapphire is doing something that has never been done before. Have you ever heard of a Christian Night Club?

The YouGov poll of 2,013 adults aged between 18 and 24 who drink in bars, clubs or pubs also found nearly two-thirds (63 per cent) of women and more than a quarter (26 per cent) of men said they had been on the receiving end themselves.

A total of 72 per cent claimed to have seen some form of sexual harassment , including "someone being on the receiving end of inappropriate sexual comments or abuse", "someone being on the receiving end of inappropriate sexual touching" or "someone receiving other inappropriate or unwanted physical attention or touching".

Some 79 per cent of women said they expected inappropriate comments, touching and behaviour on a night out toward them or their friends.

Leaders of our Tomorrow

TRUE HAPPINESS CAN ONLY EXIST IN ACCEPTANCE - FOR MOST OF MY LIFE, I HAVE LIVED IN PAIN, ANGER, DENIAL, ANGUISH, DEPRESSION, OPPRESSION - YOU NAME IT! I JUST NEVER FULLY FELT HAPPY IN MY SELF. THE DAY I FINALLY FELT ACCEPTED WAS THE DAY I BECAME TRULY HAPPY.

I DID NOT NEED TO BE DEFINED THE NORMS, RULES, STANDARDS AND REGULATIONS OF THIS WORLD. I NO LONGER FELT I HAD TO BE VALIDATED BY OTHER WOMEN. I NO LONGER FELT THE NEED TO CONFORM TO THE LIES OF THIS WORLD. I KNEW THAT THE ONLY ACCEPTANCE I EVER NEEDED WAS FROM HIM. NO LONGER DO I SPEND MY TIME WAITING FOR PEOPLE TO CALL ME VALUABLE NOR ADEQUATE! I NOW SEE ME! I NOW SEE MY WORTH! I LOVE ME! BUT MOST OF ALL, I AM FREE TO BE ME.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAPPHIRE

I must say that I do not know how we made it this far without you. Everyday I stop and stare in amazement of how we managed to get to this point. Without each and everyone of you, we never would have made it this far. How time flies so quickly. Sapphire Community Group (Sapphire Ministries) is happy that we are 4 years old. To celebrate our achievements and learnings over the years, we thought we would get videos from any past staff member, volunteer, partners, trustees, event attendees, speakers or artists or a young person who has been a part of Sapphire to share their experiences.

Thank you for all your support over the years and we look forward to helping support our community and building up a generation of young leaders.
