The young people receive instruction on how to make chocolate at Fusion

Fusion Youth Group

Fusion is our team-wide Youth Group for young people in school years 7-13. The group meets on the first Friday of each month from 7.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. in Ryarsh Church Hall.

We enjoy a range of different activities including chocolate making, ten pin bowling, film and quiz nights. Each session has a space for exploring faith and reflecting on where we meet God in our daily lives.

Fusion members live in different villages and often travel big distances to go to different schools, so having a place on their doorstep where they can have fun, explore faith and be themselves is really important.
