The members of our Disciples want to re-decorate the Upper room (the room that we hold our sessions in) with a small corner with cushions and beanbags where the members can sit down and play a board game etc. We will have a new table, possibly some trays where they can keep un-finished work, and a lot more storage space. We are planning on clearing out lots of our supplies and buying new equipment (pens, paper, paintbrushes, worksheets, folders, glue, paints, pencils scissors etc) To do all this, of course, we need money. We've already started a fund in church, and are hoping to get together some fund-raising events. We already have a few ideas, such as a "Mad hatters tea party" - an Alice in Wonderland themed afternoon tea, with entertainment, a raffle and a hat competition. We might also have a cake sale, put on a play or do anything that could bring together enough money to make the upper room look really nice.
Secondly, we have YOUTH CAFE a brilliant place you can go to after school. It involves a delicious milkshake, and I know from experience that they are extremely tasty - you can have one of a selection of three different flavours, a generous squirt of fresh whipped cream, a fantastic topping (mini marshmallows, chocolate flakes, candy balls and more) a brilliant flavoured sauce and an elegant chocolate wafer on the top. A brilliant deal for just £2, but that's not all. We also have a wide selection of biscuits and cakes including lots of fairtrade chocolates and finally, we have wi-fi. So come along to Youth cafe with your friends, every Monday and Friday, 3pm - 5pm during term time, at The Lamplighter, Bishopston Road. Don't forget, if you bring a friend for the first time, you both get a half price milkshake.
Last, but not least, we have AM I BOVERED? This is a fantastic youth group that is guaranteed to entertain all children. If you love video clips, hot chocolate, quizzes, popcorn, parties and trips then you've come to the right place. We've been going for just over a year, and have had lots of successful trips, where we have been bowling and lots more. Recently we went to Llanmadoc on a residential trip on which we enjoyed going to the beach, rock climbing, playing games and of course having the usual sessions every evening. The food was brilliant, the dormitories were lovely and everyone had a great time. We hope to go on another weekend trip soon, so don't miss out. Come to Am I Bovered (starting back in January) every Sunday Night at The Lamplighter, Bishopston Road for your share of the fun.
