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

This series will teach young people 8 important Bible Basics to lay the foundation for a lifetime of faith. Enjoy teaching videos, funny skits, games and discussion!

 


Current Series in Youth Group (evenings)

We are doing a series called 'Credit Card Faith - Instant Gratification Denied'

Overview

 Investment For The Future

We live in a world of instant gratification and “get now, pay later.” Young people will learn that the good things that God has for us may require our time, patience, and faithfulness.

No Easy Way Out

Abraham and Sarah were growing impatient for the fulfillment of God's promise that they would have a son. They took matters into their own hands, and Abraham had a son through Sarah's maidservant, Hagar. Young people will learn that when we aren't willing to wait on God, it can cause all kinds of trouble.

The Big Payout

After years of waiting on the Lord, God responded by blessing Abraham and Sarah with a child – Isaac. Through Isaac would be fulfilled the promise of a great nation that would bless all people. Young people will learn that if they wait on the Lord, he is faithful to fulfill his promises.

Losing it All (Almost)
God asked Abraham to sacrifice the life of his son. It was a test to see if Abraham trusted God more than he treasured the child he had been blessed with. Abraham obeyed God and the life of his son was spared. Young people will learn that God wants us to be faithful to him, even if it costs us.
