Our aim is to provide young people with a social, learning and community experience; to make pathways into education and employment by offering accredited courses and learning opportunities; and by providing diversionary activities to keep young people from anti-social behaviour.


Volunteering opportunities exist at Kingdom Youth Club; we are registered with Volunteer Now & Millennium Volunteers, please call in to learn more.


The Summer Scheme came to a close on Friday past, big thank you to all the staff and volunteers for the great job they have done over the past two months, including our young peer educators Caitlin, Melanie, Blaine and Louisa. We really appreciate everything you do for the club and young people. And of course, a big thanks goes out to the young people without whom we wouldn’t have a summer scheme; we hope you enjoyed it as much as we have. Last week we had visits from Community Tribal Drummers and Go Fly Your Kite and an end of summer party.

There was a small attendance for the one punch / anti-social behaviour workshop on Wednesday. The Start360 programme for aged 11 to 13 took place on Tuesday with low numbers but again a very worthwhile programme.


We have a lot of clothes that were left behind after the summer scheme these need to be collected before 7pm on Wednesday 28th November or they will be donated to charity thanks


Saturday 7th September It’s A Knockout on the Mourne Esplanade for teams of 10 young people aged 10 to 16 years. We have one team, let us know if you are interested and we can enter another.
