Story

YOUTH & COMMUNITY CENTRE, MILTON KEYNES.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men”. Frederick Douglass

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

Our Story began a few years ago in 2014. A few young people used to came together, have fun and play music and games in our backyard. They met to exchange ideas, have fun, play games and share stories. The numbers attending increased and that led to the birth of the WINNERS YOUTH CLUB which is now a group of young people between 7 years and 13 years. The older ones decided to call themselves THE WAVE MOVEMENT (14 years and older). They now meet weekly in community halls, schools and different meeting places in Milton Keynes a large rapidly growing town in United Kingdom. We later registered a Charity called Kingdom Power (reg. charity number, 1135041), that’s run various community programmes and do ministry work.) So these two young people’s groups now fall under Kingdom Power.

OUR TOWN, MILTON KEYNES. Milton Keynes is a rapidly growing town with a current population of about 270 000 people. The city has a population density of 2584 persons per square kilometre. By the year 2026, it is assessed that the amount of people in the city will bounce to 302,100. The population is more youthful than the national average. 22.6% of the area population is under 16, contrasted with 19.0% in England.

OUR PLANS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE IN MILTON KEYNES: WHEN GIVEN SPACE AND OPPORTUNITY TO COME TOGETHER AND SHARE THEIR IDEAS, YOUNG PEOPLE CAN TURN THEIR ENERGY AND CREATIVITY TOWARDS SOLVING TODAY'S CHALLENGES AND TOMMORROW'S PROBLEMS . With this in mind, we have decided to engage and involve more young people in our activities around Milton Keynes and the whole Buckinghamshire area. For us to do this effectively, we need a good well equipped young people’s centre, accessible to all young people where they can all come together exchange ideas, get mentorship and be more creative in their area of interest and gifting. So we came up with an idea, an amazing youth and community centre to be called, The VILLAGE.

THE VILLAGE. The Village will be a Youth Centre that provides support to children and young people in Milton Keynes, creating a platform for them to come together, share ideas and develop themselves. We would like to help them live safe, happy, healthy, exciting and successful lives. The centre will offer young people with a range of activities and opportunities both recreational and educational and will be open to all young people across Milton Keynes.

• At the centre we will run quality and effective events for young people, among them, sports, music, arts, drama and life skills.

• We will organise educational trips and visits to broaden their knowledge.

• We will run programmes that will empower and inspire young people to make good career choices and positive life decisions.

• We will encourage young people to be creative and develop their own ideas.

• We will support young teenage mums in our community.

• We will run campaigns to stop substance misuse in our community and open dialogue on sexual education.

• We will play as campaigners and advocates supporting vulnerable children in our community.

• The youth centre will be a positive link between the Church and the community.

• Above all we will help in building a safe, better and healthy community in Milton Keynes.

FINANCES: HOW MUCH DO WE WANT TO RAISE AND WHAT WILL THE MONEY BE USED FOR? : Our first stage is to raise £10 000. This money will enable us to rent a building and set up the Young People’s Centre. We also would like to buy a small mobile community vehicle to reach out to as many young people as we can in the community, schools, colleges, young people’s centres, churches and universities.

WE NEED YOUR HELP AND GENEROUS GIVING. : With all your help and your support this is possible. Please help us to make a difference to young people in our community. With your generous giving, this is very possible. Every donation big and small will go a long way in realising our Big Dream. Thank you for standing with us in investing in young people.
