About Us |
The local churches started the club in the 1980’s as they wanted somewhere for the kids to go as they didn’t have anywhere. It was about 12 years ago they built the youth centre at the back of Purley United Reform Church, and some of the churches still support us.
AimsTo offer through discussion, informal education and activities, ways of meeting their social, personal and spiritual needs, whilst helping them contact and develop relationships with young people in central Purley and throughout the borough.
We also want to enable young people to learn more about themselves and of the society of which they are a part.
What do you do?We offer a wide range of sports and activities such as cooking where the children can learn how to cook different foods from cakes to pizza. Arts and Crafts is offered too and we have computers.
We also have a bouncy castle now and we give free fruit to the children every week and hold ‘boxercise’ and dancing classes to help the kids exercise.
When do you meet?On Wednesday’s between 5.00pm and 7.00pm at the youth centre behind Purley United Reformed Church in Brighton Road. They also stay open during the holidays
