The CUBE Youth Project
The CUBE Youth Project provides a safe meeting place at their Youth and Community Centre, located where the old bowls pavilion on Symington's Rec used to stand. They also meet regularly with young people at Robert Smyth School on Wednesday lunchtimes.
The work of the CUBE is funded by a variety of indivduals, churches, the Market Harborough and Bowdens Charity, and business people. Continuing prayer is needed for both finance and volunteer helpers. A 'Friends of the CUBE' initiative has been launched to encourage continuing donations.

When you read this we will be entering into Springtime. New buds on the trees and bulbs poking their heads through the soil. Perhaps the weather has changed as well and the dark days becoming lighter. Did you make a New Years resolution? Probably long forgotten now. However at the CUBE our resolution has not changed. We are here to serve the young people and to help them thrive in their communities. We are excited to welcome Tony Cadwallader to the CUBE. He will be working alongside Melissa Mander and with the young people especially on a Wednesday and Friday night. A new challenge for Tony and we are looking forward to the changes we will see. Also Adi White has come to us as part of his training into Youth ministry and he will be leading amongst other things the Sunday night meeting for young people who want to explore their faith.
This outreach to the young people is so important. Did you know that there are 1600 young people who commit suicide each year and that the young people you pass in the street or who you know may be contemplating this action? How awful to think that a young person believes that everyone would be better off without them.
The young people of the town and the villages are the ones in the future who will be asked to run our councils, mend our homes,deal with all the emergencies that occur and follow us in God's service. They need to know that they are valued as individuals and that as a society and a Christian community we care about them. We want to encourage them to make wise decisions and to do the best they can.
That is why the vision of the CUBE is to see the young people of our communities thriving. We want them to know that they are valued members of our society and as they learn new things and try out ideas and thoughts we are there to support care and love them.
Father God we pray for all the young people of our town. We pray that as adults we are supporting instead of criticising and valuing instead of condemning. We want to be positive leaders so that the young people have good role models to follow. Above all may we show your love in action so that everyone may thrive and come to realise that they are valued and loved.Jean Molcher
Prayer is central to our work at The CUBE and we meet regularly to pray. Our fortnightly prayer sessions are a way of bringing people together to encourage and facilitate prayer for the work that we do (or would like to start doing).
Our prayer times are a chance to catch up with what’s happening and to pray for the specific needs and activities of the organisation.
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday afternoons from 1pm to 2pm at The Cube, Symington’s Rec. Bring a sandwich and we will provide drinks.
Our vision is to see the young people of Market Harborough thrive in their communities. We are looking for more volunteers to join our team to support this vision. Could this be you?
- Volunteer youth work roles - We have a range of CUBE youth projects that you can get involved in; including evening drop-ins, rock on the rec planning sessions, girl’s group, GodCUBE, and schools work.
- Admin & maintenance roles - want to support us but not deliver youth work? There are plenty of areas where you can help out - it could be anything from gardening to website development.
