CKS Youth Group

Now while volunteering is hosted in a church it is not at all like a church service, the club is open to children, families and volunteers from all backgrounds who want to enjoy very informal, unpredictable, fun and messy activities together! Normally, the last Sunday of each month from 3:30- 5pm

We are constantly in need of volunteers with an interest in working with children as part of our programme of activities. In the past, volunteers have assisted with monthly Messy Church sessions (which take place in our refurbished church building in Springfield) and with the church youth club which meets weekly in Ceres.
