Gorleston Church launches new youth club

18 June 2018

Pews were cleared out of the way as St Mary Magdalene Church launched its new youth club last week.

The main attraction was a football cage in the nave where youngsters took it in turns to compete with one another in as others gathered around the outside to cheer them on.

As well as cage football there was table football, table tennis, snooker and a chill out zone with wifi access. In addition, there was a well stocked tuck shop which offered, drinks and pick-and-mix sweets, as well as pizza slices and cakes.

The Revd Matthew Price, minister of St Mary Magdalene Church, said:

“We were delighted to welcome 28 young people to the launch of ‘Mags’. From September, we are planning this will become a regular group for young people in school year 6 and above.

“Friday was the first of three special launch events and we were grateful to the Sports Factory team from St Thomas’ church in Norwich for bringing their football cage for the fun!”

The next Mags launch event takes place on Friday 29 June from 6pm-7.30pm which, alongside the regular activities, will feature a giant inflatable bull game in the church.
