Jo Jeffery – Families Worker


Jo is our  Families Worker. Jo’s role is to initiate new ways of outreach and develop our work with families across the three parishes of Great Horkesley, West Bergholt and Langham with Boxted.

Langham with Boxted Parish Churches runs 2 youth groups: The Zone & The Edge.

The Zone

The Zone is our church youth group aimed at people aged 6 to 11. We meet at St Peter’s church fortnightly from 10 September 2021  Friday evening in term time from 5.30pm – 7pm for a variety of activities similar to The Edge group, but aimed at a younger audience. These activities include: discussion, games, Bible study, conversation  and basically a good time with friends.

The Youth Group occasionally goes for trips out!

The Edge

The Edge is our youth group for 11-18 year olds and meets fortnightly during term time Fridays 7.30pm – 9pm at St Peter’s Church, Boxted.

For information on The Zone and The Edge, contact Dominic Sheil 01206 273324
