Integrate YFC has come together with churches in Diss to set up and open a youth cafe for the young people of Diss and surrounding areas.
The youth cafe will be held within St.Mary's church Diss, every Monday after school in term time, from 3:15 p.m. until 17:00 p.m. and it will be free to young people within years 7- 11.
There will be a variety of equipment for young people to use, such as the Wii, Xbox, pool-table, table-football and board games along with a chill out area for young people to relax and chat with their friends, make new friends or just to have some quiet time
A cafe style area will also be available, where food and drinks will be available at a small cost.
The youth cafe has a bank of volunteers from various churches who are willing to offer their time to either work within the cafe area serving food or engaging with the young people throughout the building.
Rev. John Pares, curate at St Mary's says:
‘I am delighted that St Mary’s Diss is involved in this project. We have a beautiful church in the middle of Diss and it seems only right that we welcome young people to our church building for the new Youth Café. Having lived in Diss now for nearly three years I can see that there is little for young people to do in the evenings and so I am really pleased that we can provide a safe and enjoyable environment for people to meet.’
