WAM Youth has run a community youth group, elev8, at Encounter Church, Winchcombe on Tuesday nights for years 6 – 9 since 2013 and a variety of other groups since then for various periods including a Girls Group, Book Group, Kids Cafe and older Youth Cafe.
From September 2020:
We are delighted that youth provision is considered an essential service, and so we are able to continue running two youth groups.
We offer a variety of covid-secure games and activities for young people in bubbles of up to 15. Pre-registration is required.
Our youth groups are free, however we encourage parents/carers to sign up to support us with weekly donations through out 1000 coffees campaign, please see our Support Us page for more details.
TUESDAY BUBBLE YOUTH GROUP
School Yrs 6- 8 Tuesdays 6-7.30pm.
We usually divide our time between Encounter Church Hall, and Winchcombe Sports Hall for team games and challenges!
THURSDAY BUBBLE YOUTH GROUP
School Yrs 8-11 Thursdays 6-7.30pm.
We create space for young people to hang out with their friends over activities in No 9 Gretton Road, and head over to Winchcombe Sports Hall for some ball games.
Year 8’s may choose which of the two youth groups to be a part of.
We are currently unable to provide food, and so our young people are welcome to bring their own snacks and drinks.
We have a staff team supported by volunteers and follow a safe recruitment process for all staff and volunteers.
Throughout the year we run trips and events, e.g. we regularly go surfing, camping, we’ve been to lasertag, ice skating, played bubble football and been out for a meal. We hope to be able to resume these outings as soon as we are responsibly able!
