THE FIRST EVER CHRISTIAN NIGHT CLUB
Speak or write about something with great enthusiasm or admiration
Not caring about people's opinion of them but free to radically express themselves
A Safe space where you are free to be weird and not fit into anyone's box
As it stands, the UK is an anomaly compared to the rest of Europe. Rather than viewing its nighttime culture as a valuable point of attraction, it is – more often than not – discussed in relation to antisocial or criminal behaviour. These attitudes were perhaps best summed up in comments made by Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe. In a speech to the Royal Society of Arts, he claimed that 80 percent of crimes committed in the UK were drink-related, and further suggested that a way of combating this issue would be to reduce the number of pubs.
Sapphire is doing something that has never been done before. Have you ever heard of a Christian Night Club? When have you ever heard of a club that plays no rough abusive secular music and sells no alcohol? When have you ever heard that a community organisation opened up a nightclub that positively empowers young people? We are taking the change to them. We are not afraid to step into places that people have been afraid to. We are telling our young people that we love them and will ensure that they have the best so that they can arise to be the leaders we know they can be.
There will be no alcohol so that we can reduce the stigma around toxication and having fun. We aim to show young people that they do not need drugs or alcohol to have a good time. Additionally we will not be playing grime or vulgar music so that we create an atmosphere of inspiration and affluence. We will also be promoting young people's music and creativity every night. We want a place where young people can network and have a good time. We also want to help young people who are struggling with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression so that they have a safe place to have fun and meet other people.
The Sapphire Rave Club can step in as a force for good to help reduce the violence and create a place of love and power. The night will involve good food, drinks and music. We will also be ensuring that every person that leaves the night, will not be leaving without an impact but leaves with an impaction. We not only create a fun atmosphere but a creation of inspiration and purpose. We aim to enable each young person that comes in broken, leaves with a touch of greatness. We aim to birth forth dreams and cause their face to shine with new and boundless possibilities.
