WHAT: YOUTH GROUP FOR SCHOOL YEARS 7-13
LEADERS: JAMES & JESS DOUGLAS
WHO ARE WE?
City Church Youth exists to disciple and encourage young people aged 11-18 to grow in their understanding and experience of Jesus. We aim to be a place where you can ask questions, experience God’s grace and Holy Spirit, and build lasting relationships with others your own age. We also aim to have a whole lot of fun along the way! All our regular sessions are free and open to anyone youth-age.
James and Jess bring several years of experience in youth work, along with lots of energy, to City Church Youth. When not leading youth sessions, James works as an engineer and Jess is busy looking after their two small children.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Years 7-9: During the talk in the 11:30am service in the upstairs room, we meet together to look at the Bible, have food and drinks, and pray for one another, with fun activities and games mixed in! We join back with the rest of the congregation for a time of worship afterwards.
Years 10-13: Join with church family as part of the main service.
Years 7-9: 6:15-8:00pm in the main hall. We have some different types of sessions:
121+: Evenings of games with an opportunity to have a fun drink with a leader and a one-to-one chat. A great time to ask questions, get to know your leaders and share life together. Older youth pray in small groups together as well as have fun.
Creative Worship: Evenings to explore worshipping God in a variety of interactive ways.
Step Out: Youth services with a guest speaker where we aim to encourage you to step out in a gift God has given you.
Christianity Explored/Youth Alpha: Courses to explore the Christian faith. It’s a chance to ask all your questions about faith and God (as well as playing ping pong, table football, other fun games, and eat food!)
Socials: As much fun as you can pack into 2 hours!
Years 10-13: A relaxed evening once a week looking at and discussing topics chosen by the youth themselves, in James and Jess's home. For more info about this or for the address please contact us.
Years 10-13: For regular members of the group we look to provide them with an older Christian for encouragement, support and accountability in their Christian faith. Generally people meet up around once a month.
Years 7-13: Once (or sometimes twice!) a year we go away together for a whole weekend to have fun, build friendships and go deeper with God.
One week in August – a massive youth festival (around 6000 young people) with great teaching, big worship, fun cafes, sports, social outreach and more!
