Spark Youth Club

It is the hope of Kirk Session that Spark Youth Club will recommence in the Autumn. In order to deliver the youth club, we need to recruit a bank of around 32 volunteers to work on a flexible 1 in 4 week rota basis. Duties at the Youth Club could include; manning the door and taking the weekly sub, supervising arts and crafts, running the tuck shop, leading big games such as football and dodgeball. If you feel you could serve in our church in this way, please speak to Lyndsey Shields (Contact 07874739770)
