The Youth Club meets fortnightly on Friday evenings from 7:30pm - 9:30pm and is for children of 11 and above. There is a good mix of children from within and outside the Church who enjoy playing pool, table tennis, using the Wii console and watching DVDs in the youth room which was decorated by Youth Club members. The tuck shop is also a popular destination during the evening ! We also hold quizzes and go to Bowling and Laserquest.
Youth Group Sleep In Cardboard Boxes
Members of London Road Methodist Church youth group spent Thursday evening sleeping in cardboard boxes in the grounds of the church to raise money for the charity Centrepoint.
The Junior Church had nominated Centrepoint to become one of the charities that the Methodist Church supports this year as it is a charity that helps homeless young people. Wanting to do something different to raise money they came up with the idea of sleeping out in cardboard.
Tim Casey, the church’s Youth Worker, organised the activity. He said “We had seven young people aged from 11 – 17 years who slept out all night having built their own shelter out of cardboard boxes. Some of the younger members came and helped to build the shelter as well. And despite the fact that it rained during the evening I don’t think they got too wet!”
