We run a selection of regular open access and targeted groups
Friday Youth Clubs
SSYI is renowned for its Friday Youth Club. It takes place at the SSYI Youth Centre (Above the Memorial Hall on Woollards Lane) every Friday (Excluding Christmas Holidays and Good Friday) and runs throughout the year. It is split into two groups, one that meets from 5:30 – 6:45PM for those in school years 7-8 and one that meets from 7-9PM for those in year 9 and above.
It is an open access youth club, which means young people can drop in and out as they please. It is a space where young people can meet with their friends and get stuck into a load of activities. There is usually pool, darts, crafts, xbox, nail art and board games. In addition, we sell sweets, drinks, pizzas, burgers and hot dogs! Come and check us out!
R.E.D was a group initiated by young people. It takes place every Tuesday (term time only) from 5.30pm to 7.00pm at the SSYI Youth Centre. It’s a place where young people can meet after school during the week. It is really relaxed, chilled and informal. We have a similar set up to the Friday nights but a much more calming atmosphere. It is a great place to come and do any homework or revision you may have and importantly, it's a great place to meet with your friends.
The group is for those in school years 10 and up.
Shred It Up
Shred It Up is a skating project where we visit local skate parks and shred it up with whatever we fancy. If you are into BMXs, Skateboards, Scooters, it doesn't matter, you are welcome. Zac, our youth worker, has vast experience in this field and use to work at an indoor skating project so he will give you lots of teaching and advice if you wish for it. We meet every Wednesday after school, jump in cars with all our gear and drive to the chosen location. We also have some spare equipment so if you fancy trying something new, you are welcome. Spaces are limited and consent forms must be completed prior participating so please get in contact if you are interested.
Wednesday Night Dinner (Alpha)
Wednesday Night Dinner is a group primarily for exploring life's big questions. Run in partnership with local church youth workers. In the summer term we run Youth Alpha on Wednesday's from 6:30 - 8:30PM with a cooked meal each week. During the rest of the year we run from 6 - 7:30PM looking at various topics with food and games.
