Summer Activities for Young People

Four Fridays during the School Holidays
The bus has been fully converted with computers, music centres, climbing walls, activity tables and chill out areas. Other activities will be provided on the Village Green such as face painting, nail craft, games and football.

For 50 years Culcheth Methodist Church has been helping our local community by providing activities and services for young people. Some may say that growing up now is easier than ever, but the truth is that young people today face as many challenges. Pressures to perform well at school, changing family dynamics and social pressures can make growing up difficult.

The Church believes that it is important to help young people by having a safe space to talk about their lives with others who will not judge them and who can provide guidance.

Between 2004 and 2005, with the help from Grace Fellowship Church, the Zone was opened in the Church Lane Youth Centre and the 'Rock Bus' was first used to engage with teenagers during a time of heightened antisocial behaviour in the village.

In 2006 the Friday Night Youth Club was re-established at the Church. It felt more could be done to engage young people during the summer holidays. Since then the Church has been organising special events on the Village Green involving other organisations and Warrington Council.

For the past few years the 'Eden Bus', provided by the Message Trust, has helped to provide entertainment and opportunities to build relationships with young people.
