Students at Liskeard School & Community College were treated to a special workshop by Manchester based, Christian, hip hop and dance band LZ7. The band were invited to Liskeard as part of their national tour of schools arranged by local communities and driven by LZ7’s passion for inspiring young people to be the best they can be.  The key messages throughout the workshop were of resilience, courage and respect, matching the values of Liskeard School.

The event, organised by Clare Bevan from Greenbank Church, along with Jane and Pete from St Martins Church, Josiah from Grace Church and Kim from Clearway Church, gave students a great opportunity. The workshop was high energy and combined music with real life stories to motivate and inspire.

LZ7 went on to perform a superb set at the Public Hall in Liskeard to over 300 excited young people in the community.

Event organiser Clare Bevan said “In my spare time I am the Youth Pastor at Greenbank Church and also offer pastoral support to young people in the Schools Christian Union where we provide a warm and positive environment for the students to hang out. These roles have opened my eyes to the many issues and pressures facing young people today.  They are all individuals who want to fit in and feel valued and loved. So many of them need to realise how important they are and be able to see their true worth and potential. Whatever their circumstances they can succeed but they have to believe in it for themselves first. This is what drove me to invite LZ7 into the school because they have an ability to really get this across to the pupils. They are Christians in a band who bring a message about Gods love but they also encourage every young person to 'never give up' no matter what they are going through, that they are unique, a one off, the future of this country all of which is something worth fighting for. In a loud and vibrant way they inspire, encourage and stir up hearts in a way that will motivate even the most unmotivated of students!”
