CEDARS is a circuit youth initiative that currently runs across two locations. Our aim with this project is to provide safe and inclusive spaces for all young people.
We have several areas of work that fall under the CEDARS Youth project banner; our 6-11 year old groups at Chiswick Methodist Church (Mondays) and Roehampton Methodist Church (Tuesdays). These are fun filled evenings from 4.30-5.30pm (during COVID) with games, crafts, sports, discussions and themed evenings. We also have a 11+ club open on Wednesday nights at Chiswick which provides a space for high schools years and above to come relax and chill out.
We also work closely with the local schools in these areas and have strong links with Chiswick High School, Grove Park Primary School Chiswick and Roehampton Church School and you may see our team in these schools throughout the year.
The CEDARS youth Project aspires to promote; personal growth, learning, positive wellbeing, fun, and community. Our groups are open to any young person regardless of faith, background, culture, or sexuality. We are run, and largely funded, by the church and therefore have a distinctly Christian outlook. We tend to tie-in activities to relevant Christian festivals, particularly Christmas and Easter, and are open to discussions are faith and religion. We believe that we are here to serve the children and young people wherever they are and whatever they believe.
