We have a parish youth ministry for people aged 11-18. We exist to encourage young people in their walk with God and to help and support them in their lives. We have a policy of acceptance and belonging. You may have been a Christian for years, weeks, days or you may never have set foot in a church. No matter who you are or where you're at you are welcome.
If you’re a young person between 11-18 you can join our Facebook group for information regular events and activities. Our leaders are here to help and are always ready to support you.
Our Youth Team is led by our Parish Youth Worker Jill Harrison and a team of volunteer helpers. Contact Jill for more information about the following.
Our weekly groups.
Youth Cafe runs each Wednesday during term time from 3.30-5.15pm at St Nicholas' Church. The cafe is open to those in school years 6-9 with young people in school years 10+ invited to become part of the young leaders team. Entry is free with drinks and snacks available to buy for 50p each. A variety of games and activities are on offer as well as places to just sit and chat.
If you are a young person in school years 6-13 and you want to help make a difference on the things that matter then our Catalyst youth group is for you. Each term we pick a cause to support and then we take action by raising money and letting people know more about it. The group meets each Wednesday from 5.15-6.00pm during term time in St. Nicholas' Church.
For those in school years 7-13 there is Salt Youth Group. Come and join us in the Parish Centre (side door entrance) at St Nicholas' Church each Wednesday during term time, from 7.00-9.00pm. Get cooking as we prepare a meal to share together then take part in discussions, prayer and games. More details here.
Youth Alpha is for young people in school years 7-13 and will offer a chance to talk about faith, life and God. It takes place on the first Sunday of the month at the Parish Centre, 4.00-6.00pm. During the group we'll meet, share food, watch one of the Alpha Youth Series DVDs and have some time to talk. The dates for the 2017/2018 school year are: 5th November, 3rd December, 4th February, 4th March, 6th May, 3rd June and 1st July.
There's also a Facebook page for the youth work here.
