I write with the hope that together we can raise the necessary funds to purchase an electric drum kit for the Youth Shed. Why? Well, each week Youth and Kids Church meet in the Youth Shed to run their weekly worship services. I am sure you would agree with me that it is wonderful our young people can corporately worship together each week. I also think you’d agree that we want to make sure the Youth Shed has adequate resources to make this possible.
Over the last twelve months there have been a number of people working behind the scenes, investing their time, energy, and resources, to make some big improvements to the Youth Shed sound and audio-visual equipment. These changes have enabled Youth and Kids Church to do more in their weekly services. But there is further work to be done.
One of the major areas that we still need to see (or rather hear) improvement is with the drums. Because the room is quite small, when the acoustic drum kit is played – it can easily drown out the rest of the band. Not to mention the drummer being unable to hear the rest of the band and vocals.
The long and short is that an electric drum kit will solve many of the audio issues we are currently experiencing. It will contribute to helping Youth and Kids Church be able to do what they do — but even better!
An electric drum kit that is durable, good quality (sound), and user-friendly costs around $3,000. I believe that we can raise this! I would like to humbly ask that you prayerfully consider whether this is something you are able to give towards.

As well as bringing about an improvement to the sound in the Youth Shed, I also see the drum kit as an investment in those who will lead us in worship during our Sunday services in the future. It is significant for our up-and-coming drummers to have the ability to hear the band, play with intentionality, and, I believe, it will encourage them in their God-given talents and abilities. Plus, it will be a huge blessing to our Youth and Kids Church ministries!
Thank you in advance for your generosity and willingness to share.
