SJV Catholic Youth Group
Our Youth Group meet in the Parish Hall on Monday evenings : 6.30pm-8.30pm during term-time.
Suitable for Year 7 and upwards.
We offer a friendly and safe environment for young people to gather together and have fun.
Some of our activities include: Games, Team building, Night prayer, Fundraising, Bowling, Theatre trips and Themed parties.
Come along and meet new friends.
It was lovely to welcome all the children back to youth group after the summer break.
The weather was kind to us so the children spent most part of the evenings outside playing team games with Toby.
Toby is training to be a priest and is spending September at our parish, he has had a lot of experience working with children, he set up a youth group when he was 18 and also spent time working at Alton Castle.
The children and leaders really enjoyeded having him at youth group and will be miss him when returns to Rome at the weekend.
Toby lead us in our night prayers, the theme this week was friendship.
