FUSION
FUSION Youth is a group for young people aged 10 (year 6) to 15 (year 10) to come and hang out, chat with friends, meet new people and have fun together doing all kinds of activities. 

The evening usually fuses a mixture of pool, table tennis, table football, summo wrestling, hockey, crafts, drinks and snacks. Big group activities like capture the flag, Sardines and cabbage football are favourite games amongst our group.

Most importantly we take time out during the evening to stop and think about God, who He is and what He means to us often with a theme like Homelessness, refugees or modern day slavery. 

FUSION Youth meets fortnightly @ St. Mark's Church on Thursday evenings during term time. Doors open at 6:30pm. Collection - 8:00pm. £1 sub per child per session applies. Pocket money needed for tuck shop.
