Shrewsbury Youth for Christ are proud to work alongside many local schools and churches in the Shrewsbury area.
Here’s what people are saying about us:
“Shrewsbury Youth for Christ have been running a ‘Trivolle’, sports based club during lunchtimes at Belvidere School. This has been a very popular intervention with the students so far and as a result we are seeing better cooperation from the students which then impacts positively on their lessons. It is a very popular group and we hope to continue with this in the future”.
Head of Pastoral Care of a local secondary school
“Shrewsbury Youth for Christ have worked alongside Mary Webb School for many years. During this time they have assisted delivering a range of messages, morals, and explanations of cultural differences in a way that the students understand and respond positively to. s-yfc actively support and encourage the interaction of students in all aspects of their assemblies and through their contribution to curriculum days. Many thanks for all that you do and long may it continue!”
Assistant Head of a local secondary school
“We have been delighted to be in partnership with s-yfc throughout its existence. The s-yfc team works closely with local churches in supporting their youth work alongside its main work in schools. We consider s-yfc to be a great resource for young people in our community, providing them with a values-based approach to life and an opportunity to engage with the world of faith.”
Terry Hotchkiss, local church leader.
“As a local church we’re delighted to be working in partnership with s-yfc. From leading assemblies to supporting the RE curriculum, from organising after-school clubs to developing leaders, they have an excellent track-record of impacting the lives of young people across Shrewsbury. I’ve seen the significant contribution they make in the lives of many young people in the church here, as well as in the lives of my own children, and I look forward to continued work with them in the future.”
