SWAY’s (South Wight area Youth Partnership) is a Christian organisation whose aim is to give ‘Hope and Focus’ for the youth of South Wight. This encapsulates what we do and are as SWAY. We are passionate about getting young people together, giving them opportunities to grow, work, play and fulfil their potential.
We believe young peoples’ lives can be transformed regardless of their background or circumstances. Our desire is to meet young people where they are, accept them as they are, and to provide events and groups that will build up self-confidence, improve self-worth and empower them to discover their own potential.
SWAY works with children, and a growing number and range of young people and their families. SWAY aspires to develop individuals who can cope with whatever life throws at them, to have hopes and dreams for their future and the skills to make their aspirations a reality.
We have established a relationship with young people through our youth groups and drop-in evenings. For our families these groups and events also provide encouragement and impetus as well as opportunities to work together and recognise that they are not alone in in their area in facing their challenges. These activities such as a residential, night hike or bonfire party relieve that sense of isolation and improves self-worth and esteem. SWAY’s activities and groups also provide opportunities for some of our young people to volunteer to help these events run efficiently.

WE TRAIN SALES PEOPLE, WE HIRE SALES PEOPLE, WE ARE SALES PEOPLE!
Selling is recognising potential clients, building healthy, mutually beneficial relationships with them and maintaining their business by serving them well! Many companies have opened for business with great products and great potential but failed to realise that products don’t sell themselves, regardless of how good they are. People buy people and the most successful companies have the most successful sales teams. Whether you’re a brand new sole trader or well established corporate name, we’ll help you take your sales to the next level.

St Andrews Christian Centre (previously know as the St Marys Mission Hall) has benefited from a makeover by the Community Church (I.W.) since it was the subject of a community asset transfer from the Isle of Wight Council. It had been allowed to fall into disrepair with rotten floor boards, falling plaster and peeling paintwork. This coupled with poor heating made the place unattractive for hirers and the Community Church who have held their meetings there.
The Community Church have invested a large sum of money in refurbishing the building. The hall has been redecorated internally, flooring repaired and new heaters fitted. New tables and chairs have been purchased and the hall can now seat 100 people. More recently the kitchen and toilets have been modernised and the installation of new windows and external paintwork has been completed.
The Hall is available for hire at very reasonable rates.

Aspire is a community project based at the former Trinity Church in Ryde.
In 2014 the ISYOU Initiative stepped in with Heath Monaghan at the helm. Renovations quickly took place, with volunteers doing the majority of the work, and they now see over 1,000 people walk through the doors every week for various projects and groups.
Absolutely everyone is encouraged to come down to Aspire and get involved. We are very much driven by what the community would like from us and projects are evolved around people and their needs, so if you have an idea, come and talk to us!
Our volunteers are friendly, supportive and enthusiastic about the work they do. Aspire hosts lots of groups so there’s sure to be a like-minded group of people around for you to socialise with.
Our mission is to lead women to Jesus Christ and provide opportunity for Christian women to grow in their faith and minister to others.

A residential centre, suitable for church, youth and school groups, set in 18 acres of mixed parkland near Ryde. We’ve been offering quality, bespoke, day and residential experiences since 1948. A few days at Urban Saints Westbrook can make a huge difference to the children and young people you work with. Time away together deepens relationships and unlocks great new opportunities and cements the investment you make throughout the year. Urban Saints Westbrook provides a safe and fun environment, founded on Christian beliefs so that young people have the opportunity to form genuine and lasting relationships. The centre will also provide a place where they can express their faith and have the tools to learn more about it.

For those of you in business
Apart from my spiritual role here on the Isle of Wight and internationally, as some of you will know, I also run my own business as a business and life coach. It’s in that capacity that two years ago I started a business network group, called Vectis business link, that meets every other Tuesday morning for breakfast at the Ryde Castle Hotel on Ryde Esplanade, Ryde from 7am till 9ish. This is a great opportunity to promote your business to other businesses from across the island.
We are now opening our group to any other still unrepresented businesses/trades that wishes to join us or at least visit us and as a guest enjoy a FREE breakfast.
If you wish to attend or require more information please get in touch via email email@example.com or give me a call on 563144.
Thanks and God bless.

Medina Valley Centre is an independent Outdoor Education and Field Studies Centre based at the heart of the Isle of Wight. Starting out as the Christian Sailing Centre and moving into providing a full programme of outdoor pursuits we have a rich history of helping young people to grow and develop through adventurous activity. For nearly 40 years we have also been delivering high quality GCSE and A-Level courses to young people from all walks of life. As well as being a residential centre for schools we also welcome church groups, youth groups and conferences for any duration of time.
Our desire as a Christian Centre is to help every individual who comes here to discover life in all its fullness. Our hope is that we can serve, love and care for our guests in a way that has an impact on their life way beyond their time with us.
Our Centre is a wonderful asset on the bank of the river Medina. We are always open to other ways in which we can make use of what God has entrusted to us.
Whether you have been here before or have never heard of us we would love to show you around and discuss possible ways we could work together.
The Gideons International – Isle of Wight Branch objective is to share God’s message of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ by personal witness and through placing Bibles and New Testaments into people’s hands.
As Christian parents, are you concerned about schools where teachings are often immoral or against God’s rules and values?
Do you believe in brainwashing your children with evolution teaching and teaching them that “If it feels right it must be right!”
Is bullying a problem, or does your child have learning difficulties because of pressure or stress at school or because he or she is a slow worker or a slow developer?
Then perhaps you might consider home education.
Christian home education with T.E.A.C.hH (Christian Education Europe) is an option, not unduly expensive and entirely based on scripture. http://www.christian-education.org/
It is well made, attractive (my boys love it), adapted to the pace of the child, high academic standard and offers a certificate at the end, comparable to the GCSE. It is recognised for entry to colleges or good universities.
If you would like to know more about it, we would love to hear from you.
