Salmon Youth Centre and London City Mission have teamed up to work with young men in the area to realise their potential and to challenge society's negative stereotype on them.

Fitness instructor Tim Fielder has been evangelising in the Bermondsey area and has been working with some young people at Salmon aims to support them through his ‘Body and Soul Fitness Programme.

The Body and Soul fitness programme which takes place on Mondays and Wednesdays during 14+ Mixed Club and 14+ Football consists of 40 minutes of group fitness sessions and 20 minutes of bible study, to introduce the young people to the Christian faith.

“I started this programme because I saw that there were a lot of misconceptions about young men in the area and I wanted to empower them to be the leaders of the future.”

“So far, it has been an amazing experience, we have had a lot of engagement with the young men who have been involved and some of them who haven’t picked up a bible in their lives have now started to read and understand about what it means to be a real Christian man.”

Since the launch of the programme, more than 15 young people have taken part in 1 to 1 sessions and were supported through counselling and mentoring and learned the importance of responsibility and ownership.

For more information about the Body and Soul Fitness Programme, come to our 14+ sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays at 8:15pm - 10:00pm.
