Youth and Children's Work

St. Andrews Methodist Church Breakfast club 

They run a breakfast club and holiday clubs in the local primary school.

The club is offered free of charge and staffed by volunteers and minister. This club is a link between church and community, it is open to all children in the school. The school had a high percentage of low income families.

The breakfast club offers food to those who would struggle to afford a breakfast. It also helps those families working in poverty or those who wish to return to work.

The holiday club provides activities for the children who are not able to go on holiday. It also helps out parents who require childcare or grandparents providing the childcare. The church has now been given the service level agreement to provide this club on a permanent basis.
