SJV Catholic Youth Group
Our Youth Group meet in the Parish Hall on Monday evenings : 6.30pm-8.30pm during term-time.
We look forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 11th September 2017.
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.
Tonight was the last night of youth group until September, and we celebrated with a fancy dress party. The theme was around the world, and the children all made lots of effort with their costumes. We all had lots of fun and enjoyed Pizzas and sweets.
We wish all the children and their families a happy and safe summer,
and pray that all the year 6 children have a good transition in to their new schools.
We look forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 11th September.
ITS A KNOCKOUT 18th - 19th June
Unfortunately SJV didn't attend it's a knock out this weekend as we didn't have enough children to make up a team, so no trophies this year.
