St Mary’s Charities Committee would like to invite you to an informal Coffee Morning on Wednesday 13th October. This will be held at 14 Corpus Christi Lane, Godmanchester between 10.30am and 12.00pm. We are raising money for Thrive a Christian youth project working with young people locally. Their vision is to see the lives of young people transformed through mentoring programmes carried out in Schools, Churches and at their weekly Youth cafes in Huntingdon and Brampton. Thrive offer emotional, social and spiritual support by connecting and caring for young people. Their vision is to empower young people to celebrate who they are, challenge their own thinking and actions and also create opportunities for all to explore their own faith.
