EDGE Covid-19 Update (23-03-20)

In response to the latest guidance, the Church of England has suspended all public worship, including children's and youth events. This means that we will not be able to gather together as EDGE Thursday, EDGE Friday, EDGE Sunday or WHAM for the foreseeable future. This does not mean, however, that our youth work has to stop entirely—we just have to reimagine how we do things. We're looking into ways to take some of what we do online. You can follow us on Instagram to stay up to date (see feed below), or you can email me for more information.

We spend time watching Bible teaching, discussing relevant topics and praying together as we seek to support each other in our faith.

Come with your friends and make new ones. EDGE Thursday is a place to chat, play games or get on with homework; all while eating cookies, drinking hot chocolate and eating more cookies (available at very low prices). You can find us in the Upstairs Hall from 4–5pm, feel free to drop-in anytime during the session. Have we mentioned we have cookies...?

EDGE Friday is an open youth club providing a place for you to belong. Come and hang out with your friends, meet new people, play pool or table tennis or sit and relax. We also spend some time asking questions about faith and focussing on issues relevant to you.
