Thrive is the new name for Chapel Allerton Youth Project. We’ve had to change our name because we no longer work only in Chapel Allerton, and no longer work only with young people!
Started as a youth ministry partnership between three diverse church congregations, this work is still the core of the project: we run two weekly youth groups, a discipleship cell group and last year did a very successful Alpha Course. More recently, we have been running Messy Church, with a number of new families becoming regular participants.
Thrive also works in several local schools, with a particular emphasis on supporting young people struggling to settle and belong. We support the fledgling Christian Union at Carr Manor Community School.
Please pray for the trustees as Thrive becomes a registered charity. All the groups are at or near capacity, so like many projects we always need more volunteers. And please pray for the families at Messy Church as they explore faith, many for the first time.
