New4You is a youth club. Its aim is: a place for young people to have fun together in a relaxed and safe environment. Its objective is: to provide the safe environment for them to meet. To enable the young people to have a voice and plan their own activities through the youth council who are nominated each term by their groups. To invite them to other activities relevant to their age group within the life of the church.
The City Centre can be a magnet for young people during the evenings as well as in the daytime. At night, too young for the nightclubs and bars, young people often wander round the city centre streets in groups. New4You provides a venue for them to congregate in safely and engage in positive activities or just chill out with their friends. The youth centre provides youth leaders and appropriate activities ranging from discos to sports with a cafe and relaxation area.
Many of the young people that we meet are from very challenging backgrounds. They have confronted poverty and depravation daily for most of their lives. Some are from badly abused backgrounds. Consequently they are often anti-social and distrust those in authority. Alcohol and drug abuse are some of the poor choices they make. They come to us weekly and we have seen changes in them. Our young volunteers have been amazing getting alongside these youngsters and serving them.
