Sunday mornings aren’t the best time for teenagers to be up and about but we offer and range of sessions at different times for anyone who is interested and is aged 11+
Club 1 meets in the youth room of the Oliver Bird Hall at 9:15am on the the 3rd and 4th Sunday – they look at the Gospel reading for the next 1st Sunday and then read it in church.
Holy Crunch meet at St Michaels Church in Sharmans Cross Primary school at 10:30am on the 3rd Sunday.
Gospel and Toast meet at St Helens Church at 10am on the 4th Sunday of the month.
All the groups have a range of activities and discussions but all have one thing in common. FOOD!
“…We have breakfast. Its great and the people and leaders are cool…”
“…Toooooast! Holy Crunch is the highlight of my Sunday…”
ReMix is our monthly social and ranges from cookery to rock climbing to games nights to messy events. It’s open to any young people in year 6+ as well as their friends and meets normally in the youth room of the Oliver Bird Hall at 7pm on the last Saturday of the month. Check the calendar on the main page for details of the next one! But here is what some of the young people said and some pictures from recent sessions…
“…immensely fun. Often messy. Always funny. Never miss one…”
“…they are soooooo much fun. AHHHHHHH…”
We believe that God isn’t just in church buildings and so we have a detached youth work team who walk the streets on Saturday evenings from 6pm-8pm engaging with young people. You will be able to spot them because of their bright purple hoodies, flasks of hot chocolate and friendly faces!
Junior ReFresh is for young people in year 7 and 8 and meets fortnightly on Wednesday evenings from 7pm-8pm in the youth room of the Oliver Bird Hall. It’s a really friendly and welcoming space which mixes activities, games, discussions and snacks; all themed around Bible passages.
Here’s whats going on this term.
ReLax is a fortnightly fellowship group for young people in year 9+. We believe that it’s important to learn about God but also think that spending time with friends is really important and just because we don’t talk about God doesn’t mean He isn’t there! We meet on alternate Thursdays from 7pm-9pm in the youth room of the Oliver Bird Hall and have a real mix of activities going on.
“…ReLax is just hilarious, from Jungle Speed to general chat…”
Here is what’s going on this term.
ReFresh is a fortnightly Bible study group for young people in year 9+, where we look at what the Bible says and how it applies to us today. We meet on alternate Thursdays from 7pm-9pm in the youth room of the Oliver Bird Hall. There is normally juice, hot chocolate and doughnuts as well as good discussions and a bit of contemporary worship.
“…a good way to learn together about God and His teaching…”
Below are the dates for what is happening when.
Reflect is our weekly prayer group and runs from 5-6pm every Friday in term time and is open to anyone in year 6+. We meet in the youth room of the Oliver Bird Hall and find creative ways to connect with God and think about how we fit in the world. It’s not all silence and kneeling! This group is followed by optional Pizza and Games at Mike’s (our youth minister) house until 7:30pm. Below is this terms plan.
“It’s awesome-sauce. There’s always food. It’s great to just chill out with friends and God after a long week of hard work”
