Youth Cafe to be piloted by Mid Norfolk church

Hingham Youth Cafe337Offering pizza and table tennis, a church in Hingham is launching a new youth cafe project to provide a safe, inspiring space for young people to meet up in the market town.
St Andrews Church in Hingham is sponsoring a new youth cafe evening on Friday 16th March for those in Years 7-9. Meeting in Lincoln Hall from 7-9 pm, the youth cafe is seeking to be a safe, inspiring place where young people can meet their friends.
The church was motivated to start the initiative when it identified a lack of activities for young people in the town.

Zoe Jones, the Youth Cafe Coordinator, explains: “We noticed a growing number of young people within the church of high school age, and were aware of a lack of organised activity for post primary school children in the town.  We decided this was a service that the church might be able to provide.”

For the launch, up to 40 young people will be treated to pizza and hot chocolate, with entertainment from games consoles, table tennis and table football.   Funding for the pilot stage has been secured from the Diocese of Norwich Sharing the Good News Fund, Momentum and the Youth Task Fund, with support given by Hingham Town Council. 10 volunteers have been recruited to the team both from within the church and the wider community. 

The launch night will be followed by two more pilot evenings in May and July. If the youth cafe proves successful, it is hoped that it will become a regular event from September.

The youth cafe team would gratefully appreciate any help for this new project in terms of funding, equipment or time. If you would like to get in touch please contact Zoe Jones on 01953 852314.
