West Cambridge Christian Youth Ministries in

Comberton Village College

Since it started in 1992, WCCYM has had close links with Comberton Village College (CVC). 

CHRISTIAN UNION GROUPS

WCCYM runs weekly lunchtime Christian Union groups. These were previously for students from Yr 7 to Yr 11, but now we have separate groups for each year, so that students don’t mix year groups. These groups are an opportunity to eat your lunch with your friends, play some games, chat about life and issues, learn something about God, and be encouraged in your Christian journey. Anyone (in the relevant year group!) is welcome to come to the groups.

ASSEMBLIES

Representatives from WCCYM will go into assemblies to give announcements and introduce themselves, and will sometimes take assemblies on specific themes. This has recently happened on video rather than in person.

PASTORAL WORK

Some of the youth workers are involved in providing pastoral support for students at Comberton Village College. This could be by mentoring individuals (referred through heads of year and the family therapist at the school), or in group situations, following a course for 6 weeks. 

SUPPORTING THE COLLEGE IN CURRICULUM AREAS

WCCYM is involved in supporting Comberton Village College in different curriculum areas. A team of youth workers are involved in RPE (Religion, Philosophy and Ethics) and PD (Personal Development) lessons. There are sometimes youth workers linked to WCCYM who will help on Activities Week with the school too.
