What is Xcel?
Xcel is an award winning christian youth program that has been built from the ground up to respond to the needs of young people in Halton. It has been created and is run by young people and aims to get young people involved in order to develop them as young people. Xcel runs in various forms across the week to provide as much opportunity for young people to get involved as possible. Some of these forms include small groups, performing arts and youth club.
