2018 Work Day 25th August 2018

Much of CYC is run on the donation of money and time given by it’s supporters…

Come along and donate some time at our CYC work day.

Help us knock several jobs on the head that help us keep CYC running and having the ability to share the saving gospel with those that pass through out gates.

Not only is it a great way to lend a hand, you can get a work out and some fellowship in at the same time.

See you there.
