St Alban’s Youth Group

XCell Youth Group is open to all young people at secondary school, irrespective of which school they attend; anyone in Year 7 (age 11+) and upwards – those who have moved up from St Alban’s, St Mary’s, St Paul’s, Christ the King to All Hallows, those who have gone to All Hallows from a different primary school, and those who have moved onto a different secondary school. Plus their new friends!

The group is provides a fun environment where children can meet up with old friends and develop new friendships. There is often some folks going from Poynton, so you may meet up with old friends.

The group meets once a month on Fridays, usually from 7-9pm, either in St Alban’s Parish Centre or at another venue such as the bowling alley or Jump Nation trampolining centre.

If you’d like to join in with the fun, please contact them on

A message from Anna & Greg Hughes: Thank you to those who have been coming along to XCell, and to the parents who have helped out. Greg and AnnaI have been running XCell for 7 years now, and it’s time for a new pair of hands at the helm: it’s 6 years since our youngest left XCell!  We’re very happy to talk you through how it runs, and hand over all the materials we have so that you don’t have to start from scratch.

So…..May’s meeting will be the last meeting unless we have new leaders lined up, in which case we will help you run June’s meeting and then retire gracefully!

The youngsters really enjoy the opportunity to meet up and play games, so please consider whether you could run this monthly Youth Group for our young people.

Contact Anna & Greg Hughes, 01625 614406  They are looking for parents to continue the running of the Youth Group – please contact Anna or Greg on to offer your help, or sign up at the first meeting.  If everyone helps, your help will probably only be needed once a year!
