Welcome to Godolphin

The Community Website for Godolphin Cross, Cornwall

Tuesday Youth Club

Local people set up the GCCA in May 2013 following a village consultation to understand what the community wanted, which included the establishment of a youth provision, which was set up one night a week in the local Methodist Chapel and run by local volunteers from September 2014 to November 2017.


GCCA with strong local support and £100,000 in the bank bought the Chapel for community use, opening up new possibilities. 


In 2016 we conducted surveys & focus groups with young people to find out what they would like to see in the chapel IF it was bought for community use.  Comments included - WiFi - Movie evenings - Dance group - After school club - Activities to do in the winter.  Significantly, the report recorded that "It was striking how often that health came up.... both physically….but also mental health.  Kids talked about wanting a "safe space", a "friendly/social place" 

60 local young people aged 7 to 16 benefit from

purposeful activities, having a space to meet with

peers and caring adults to speak with. 


With the Chapel purchased by November 2017, GCCA opened a new, improved youth project in the Chapel from April 2018, opening two nights weekly.


Tuesday nights are open from 5.00pm to 7.00pm during school term time and includes a mixture of sport, arts and crafts, drama and fun - outdoors on the school field in good weather or indoors at the Chapel.  The session is popular and is staff by two paid youth workers and at least two volunteers.  We open a "tuck shop" for half an hour to fuel the frenetic activities and organise trips as much as possible.  For further information contact Richard on 01736 761 331 or email
