Both Matt and Jeni support and facilitate mission acivities within the Deanery and Jeni heads up the Blackpool Youth and Children's Network and is also involved in youth training events. 

The Centre of Mission has been fortunate enough to have been offered two buildings - The Boathouse and the Argosy Community Centre.
