We have two groups for youth on Sundays - one for 11-14 year olds and one for those aged between 15-18. We also have two youth groups, a fortnightly Friday youth group for 11-14s called Legacy, and a monthly Sunday evening session for those between the ages of 15-18 called Breakaway.
The group for 11-14s meets during the morning service every week, except the first Sunday of the month when the young people stay in the main service. We use different activities from Urban Saints to learn more about our faith, often following the same teaching series as the congregation. We play games, chat, do Bible studies, explore ideas through art and drama, and pray together.
On Friday evenings we have Legacy, our youth group that meets every fortnight. We meet in the Goodliffe Hall from 7-9pm for a chat and hang-out time. Each session will have a different activity like making pizzas, as well as the usual playing football, table tennis, table football, competing on the wii, or playing board games.
We also run one or two trips per term, like dinners out, bowling or trampolining.
We meet twice a month during the Sunday service. We go to the vicarage for tea (and hopefully cake), chat, debate and Bible study. These studies normally mirror the adult home groups.
We also have a group that meets on the first Sunday of the month. We attend Inspire together, the monthly evening service, before meeting to have a chat and some food together until about 9pm.
Once a month we encourage our young people to serve in the church by joining one of the teams, for example helping with the younger children, or serving tea and coffee.
