Young People

 We really care about young people and want them to be free to be themselves and to discover their faith in Jesus.

Our verse for the year is 1 Timothy 4:12 - "Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity."


As we begin to return to the church building all sessions will adhere to social distancing rules as outlined by the Government and young people will be expected to consent and give contact details to comply with NHS Test and Trace. Under 13s will need to have a parent or guardian do this for them

Current Series in Youth Group (evenings)

We are doing a series called 'Coffee WIth Jesus - Drink and Be Refreshed'


 Just Be
Sometimes we can get so distracted by all we have to do and everything we need to accomplish. Young people will learn that Jesus is more interested in having our time and attention focused on Him.

Be Made New
When Nicodemus sat down for a chat, Jesus spoke to Him of the need to be “born again.” Young people will learn that Jesus desires to make us into new creations.

Be Filled

The Samaritan woman came to the well looking for water; but found a Saviour instead. Young people will learn that Jesus longs to fill us with His living water.

Be Restored
After Jesus rose from the grave, He shared a meal with some of the disciples, using the time as an opportunity to offer forgiveness and as a challenge to the disciple who had denied Jesus. Young people will learn that spending time with Jesus should include looking back at all He has done and looking forward to all that he will do through you.

Admission is Free


Money will only be needed for trips planned in advance.
