We are Aterbeat
“We have asked for a lesson about resilience. The presentation was very well thought out, well organized and the sound was really professional. Our young people felt they could really identify with the speakers, and were engaged right from the beginning. All of the speakers, and individuals involved were clearly passionate about their work and our young people could clearly relate to to them which made the presentation even more powerful."
The Afterbeat team and bands have visited our Ubbo Emmius Veendam school (Secondary School in The Netherlands) every year since 2013. By introducing students to different music styles and dance children felt motivated and respected in who they are. Afterbeat has an eye for children and their talents. This is why I highly recommend Afterbeat to everyone.
“I have been working with Alko and Afterbeat in The Netherlands and Scotland. Afterbeat events and schools work have been one of the highlights of our youth work here in Dunfermline and have started many young people in their faith journey by engaging with dynamic presentations and performances but also building meaningful relationships with churches and young people“
"The pupils really enjoyed the lesson. It was well planned and very impactful. Pupils were able to discuss the lesson themes later in the classroom, showing the impact it had had”
“A dynamic youth ministry in our nation! I love how they go into the schools to encourage on current social issues of life. The excitement that is presented at their events by the live music and the testimonies of the bands as they share the Gospel. The follow up to get the youth plugged into youth groups reveals the heart of this ministry. I’ve seen many youth respond to follow Jesus and this excites me, I want to be involved in any way I can!"
“I really enjoy working with Alko. He is hopeful and straightforward, a team building with a real dependency on God in prayer and a vision to see young people hear the gospel in their own language and culture.
Alko and Miriam are tremendous encouragers , inspirers and youth leaders with tremendous experience , skills and wisdom to help young people in Scotland. The coronavirus is a massive downer for young people increasing stress levels and anxieties. Afterbeat is an amazing outfit that will help the multitudes of young people in this nation navigate this tough season and set them up with the resilience insights to face any other further challenges in life. Having watched them in action I can highly recommend them to you.
