The Gym Youth Group

West Road Church
Sundays 1930-2100

If you are a teenager, then get yourself down to the Gym on a Sunday evening after Church. We can usually be found down in the cellar, but we like to get out and about too, so we always have plenty of activities away from Church programmed into the calender. Why is it called the Gym? Well, the purpose is about spiritual fitness. Being in as good a shape spiritually as we can be in order to live out the amazing life God has planned for each one of us!
