The young people meet with the adults for worship on a Sunday morning before moving into their own groups.
As a group the young people are encouraged to explore what the Bible says on issues that are current and particularly relevant to youth and youth culture. Being a lively group we have some very interesting debates and discussions.
We openly share testimony and prayer requests. We have seen an increase in the number of young and pre-primary children in our church. These children also go out of the main service and follow their own craft based teaching. The younger people of the church are very supportive of each other and obviously enjoy being together.
The youth group are becoming more involved in leading in church, which is being encouraged. They have prepared, written and delivered in recent years some innovative Christmas Plays, which have been based around The Jeremy Kyle Show and one based on the characters of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. All the young people were involved in the process in the play.
Occasionally we meet mid-week for food, games and general discussion. Other young people are welcome to join us for these evenings.
