Hi I am Jo Chant and I welcome you to the Foyer Project (an after School Drop In). We will be adding to this page as we go but for now please find below a few details.
To start: I am really looking forward to being involved in the foyer project this year, and hope that we will be able to make a safe space where you (that's young people) feel welcomed and enjoy coming along to relax with their friends. This is a great opportunity to get to know them, to understand better how to reach them, to listen to them and show church in a really positive way to them.
So far (in the first few days), we have had 11 different young people ‘through the doors’ and have also been able to speak to some passing by when we have put free cakes outside! They have been enjoying playing table tennis, cards, giant jenga and table football as well having a free drink and a place just to relax with their friends. I hope that as we get more teenagers coming along they will suggest activities and games that we have for the project.
All the young people we have spoken to have been positive about the idea of the drop-in we are just hoping that they come back and help to spread the word! Please invite any young people that you think would enjoy the foyer project. We also need more volunteers, so please get in touch if you could help out, either once a week, once a fortnight or on an occasional basis.
We are open for fun from 3.30pm to 5.00pm Monday to Friday
The Foyer is located between Toymaster & Oxfam at the South end of South Street
