The Village Youth Project encompasses all the youth work that is done here at St Mary’s church. It has now been running for over 8 years. From small beginnings we now have a growing range of activities; 4 youth workers and a dedicated team of volunteers.









Set in the heart of Upton village, The Bank is our drop-in centre and hub of all that we do. It provides a great venue and facilities including internet suite, games consoles, pool, cafe/kitchen facility and high tech suite.


We work with young people age 11 upwards from within our parish and across the wider area.


We take Child Protection very seriously and have strict procedures in place.

    - To minimise the potentially harmful effects of negative personal experiences
