Summer Fun Days volunteering
The group has a great time playing big high energy games, small teamwork challenges and of course spending time looking at our faith on a reflective level. The teaching in this group has stripped back to just reading a chapter of the Gospel of Mark. This will encourage the young people to ask questions and give space for the Gospel to speak for itself..
School year 7 - 13
This group has small group of regular attendees. The time is spent with informal chat and occasional low energy games. The bible study aims to push the young people’s understanding of the bible and of God. The upcoming academic year we are focusing on worship.
School years 10 -13
This group has over 10 young people each week. The games are high energy which link to the theme of the teaching. The group aims to develop the young person’s ownership of their faith and how it should impact their lives.
School age 7 - 9
We have a dedicated youth room giving our young people space to chill out eat pizza and find out about God!
Building up the youth community through food?
YES, quite simply we come together and eat and chill out as the Rock Solid and Gravity groups.
The idea is to have more social time together and having a safe space for our young people to hang out with the rest of the youth group.
An afternoon of games, crafts, Fifa and food. This session is purely to help develop relationships with those attending.
We run from straight after church on 2nd Sundays till 3 o'clock.
School Age 7 - 13

This is a group developed from the Pure course that ran recently.
The aim of this group is to create a sense of what house groups are like but also to encourage their own faith development.
We will be focusing on discipleship for the first 6 months
School Year 10 and older.
We meet and chat with young people individually over a costa or similar once a week.
This could be to encourage their faith development or possibly help them develop in personal issues they may be having.
We want to become an encouraging voice in their lives which can bring light.
Hot Chocolate is a detached program to engage with young people as part of the journey home from school.
We set up next to a bus stop and offer drinks (not just hot chocolate), a question for them to answer and a challenge for which they can win prizes.
We are now regularly serving and meeting 70 young people each week and have built really good friendships with many of them.
