Who We Are

Who We Are

We are here to make the whole of life an adventure, by being the best place in Weston for children to play together and grow in confidence.

In fact, because The Venny has some of the best facilities in Weston, it has the potential to become a hub for families and the whole community, not just its children.

The people we serve are fighting to do well in life, but often face the challenges of social disadvantage, poverty, and lack of educational opportunities.

Weston Church Youth Project

Weston Church Youth Project

The Weston Church Youth Project started life over 25 years ago as a ministry of Holy Trinity Weston, the local parish church. The project is now registered as a separate charitable incorporated organisation and serves the young people of Weston through four distinct but related programmes: fun, achieve, engage and faith.

The fun programme offers activities, trips and open access youth clubs which promote community, social skills, and mutual respect.

The engage programme runs projects and activities where young people can learn new skills and gain valuable life experiences.

The achieve programme delivers targeted work with local schools, addressing issues affecting attendance, self-worth and behaviour.

The faith programme helps interested young people to explore the claims of Jesus Christ through Christian clubs, groups and events.

Many of WCYP’s activities take place at the Venny.

Since its humble beginnings in the 1970s the Venny has always been a grass roots charity: run by local people, used by local people, and often supported financially by local people. Booking the Venny for a private function is a great way to offer your financial support.

The Venny is a solid, reliable, high quality, community facility where this adventure really can begin.

This is why we believe we must engage with our community, improve our facilities, and create these opportunities for our children.

When we do this, we will make it possible for the children of our community to grow in confidence and embrace life by having mini-adventures every single week.
