St Margaret's, Barking

For children and teenagers aged 10 and over

All of the activities are provided free of charge on a first come first serve basis. This year, as well as doing street dancing, Mcing and football skills, we will be having a mobile studio where budding MCs and beatboxers can record their own tracks and take a copy home! Also, we are introducing a gospel workshop. REMEMBER - When that when you come as a group, please bring an adult to help with supervision and to be a familiar face to you.

From 26 July to 6 August 2004, SOULINTHECITY mobilised up to 15,000 young people from around the UK and other nations in community projects, sports and music initiatives, children’s clubs, and other schemes across Greater London. These were developed in conjunction with over 760 local churches, and other local partnership organisations, including the Metropolitan Police and Local Government, to ensure that they were tailored to meet areas of real local need, and effect lasting social change. SOULINTHECITY is a Christian initiative, which seeks to emphasise that “actions speak louder than words”.

Community Projects for Barking and Dagenham included garden and paint projects for Thames View schools, rubbish clearance and graffiti removal on the Rylands Estate, repair and development of the estate at Wellgate Community Farm, a Kid’s Roadshow in Becontree and ‘Compete and Eat’ events in Barking. Additionally, there were a series of Cafe Nights, Community Roadshows and Band Nights in the borough. Click here for SOULINTHECITY photos.
