Kelston is run exclusively by volunteers. Many are past members and about fifteen are on the team at any one time. We put a firm emphasis on study, achievement and character development. It offers an attractive place to study outside school, a meeting place to make new friends from many backgrounds, constructive and enjoyable leisure-time activities, and a safe environment within a Christian ethos.
Too few opportunities exist for young people to develop their talents and grow in self-esteem in their choice of leisure-time activities. Kelston is a proven success at demanding from members the commitment and application required to give oneself to others and make the best use of one’s time and personal abilities.
The Study Centre caters for schoolboys, students and young professionals from 15 to 25 and the Club is for those aged between 10 and 14. Through a varied programme of events, Kelston encourages young people to use their time constructively and to improve their ability to study well. Confidence, independence of mind and a strong sense of responsibility towards those around them are fostered during these important years of development
By removing the current restrictions of available space, the project will enable different age groups to come at the same time and thus benefit from Kelston on all days of the week.
