St Christopher’s Family Centre – works with parents and children aged 0-18 across Holmewood. We support young adults up to age 25. Our vision is to give children the best possible start in life, supporting their parents on their journey and create a safe place for young people. We run parent and toddler groups twice a week –Baby Sense includes toddler gym and baby massage, and Earlybirds is a pre-nursery prep group. We run afterschool clubs across a range of ages and activities, and link with local schools. We are developing our work with the Salvation Army across Holmewood to provide families work that is united and joined up. We call this the “Holmewood Youth Partnership”.
Through our activities we seek to enable young people to grow and develop in confidence, self-esteem and aspiration while also learning new skills. We also work to communicate the love of Jesus and some of our sessions focus on young people developing and growing in faith.
Please pray for:
A new lead youth worker advertised for, and for them as they settle in.
Our team of staff and volunteers in the busy weekly schedule of sessions and the children and young people who we work alongside, in particular those facing significant challenges in life.
