We have a summer Holiday Club for children in the school holidays; every morning Monday 30th July – Wednesday 1st August. The theme is ‘Bible Heroes’.
We welcome our new Youth Engagement Worker, Abby Watterson, who took up her exciting new post in February.
Abby joins us after moving from Hawarden, Flintshire, on the Welsh-English border not too far from Chester. Abby brings much experience of Methodism having been part of the Methodist Church’s One Program as well as organising the annual youth forum event in Wales Synod – Abby describes this as “a space for young people across Wales to come together and discuss issues that affect them and things that we can do in the church to help them feel valued.” She has been involved in youth events such as 3Gen and Greenbelt as well as Sleep Overs and Holiday Clubs.
Abby brings a fresh energy and enthusiasm and is especially excited by our ‘Birth to Belief Pathway’ which grew out of last year’s Vision Day. Abby says, “I was fortunate to grow up within a Methodist church with members who worked hard to encourage young people and make them feel empowered and as a result of this I have experienced such great opportunities … I would like to encourage young people the way I have been and help them to encounter God; to help encourage them to go further on their faith journey and help empower them within the life of the church.”

We take our responsibilities for keeping our children and young people safe very seriously. Our Safeguarding Adviser is Dr Yin Mellor. Further details of our policy and procedures can be obtained by using the Contact Us form.
