Pineapple Youth Project offers youth groups and activities for 7-17 year olds and is run in partnership with Riverside Church. It includes: Youth Zone, 15-17s and Pineapple Rules Football
Youth Zone is our term time youth group for 11-14s.
We meet on Fridays, 5.30-7pm. We have Xbox One, PS4, table tennis, table football, a pool table, craft, lots of games and plenty of snacks and drinks! We also have the garden open, where we have football, basketball, cricket, frisbees and other lawn games. We do creative activities like baking and photography, as well as learning life skills like first aid and self defence. We go on trips every half term. Some recent trips include: Acocks Green Bowling, volunteering with Homeless One, Rush Trampolining and Edgbaston Fireworks. Next year we have lots of trips and workshops coming up including a theatre production about mental health with Riverside Performing Arts and a trip to Creation Climbing Centre in Moseley.
Everyone is welcome so come along and bring your friends!
