Staff and residents from Benaiah enjoyed a refreshing day out together, with the help of a Peterhead Church.
Teen Challenge Benaiah headed to the Apex Centre – ran by Apex Church – for an afternoon of fun, which included a “Come Dine With Me’ meal prepared by the Benaiah staff.
With the Apex Centre also boasting pool tables, table football, basketball hoops and more activities, the day saw the staff and residents healthily show their competitive side.
Grace Donn, Senior Support Worker at Benaiah, commented: “The heart of the day was really for staff and residents to get together outside of the centre.
“We thought it would be a good idea for all of us to eat and spend some time together, and the day was such a success that we plan on doing something similar every January, as it’s such a nice way to start the year.
“We want to say a huge thanks to the Apex team for kindly allowing us to use the Apex Centre.”
One of the current Benaiah residents added: “It’s been a brilliant wee day out of the centre.”
The Apex Centre is Apex Church’s youth and community building. At weekends it provides a safe space for young people to build healthy relationships and enjoy themselves. Throughout the week it is available for local community groups to host their activities.
Apex Church’s Senior Pastor, Neil Cameron, commented: “It has been our privilege to support the work of Teen Challenge Benaiah over these past few years. The staff provide an excellent service of offering freedom to people with life controlling issues within an exceptional facility. It was our joy to host the staff and residents at the Apex Centre during the Christmas season.”
