Youth

ages 11–18

On Sundays

Pathfinders (for school years 6-8)

Pathfinders is a fun, friendly, interactive and engaging Bible teaching group for young people in school years    6-8 and runs during the 9.45am service. We enjoy a Bible talk, games and time spent with friends. In the holidays, we sometimes stay in the service and listen to the sermon – contact Sam Gillespie for more information about this.

Impact (for school years 9-13)

Impact is for teenagers in school years 9-13 and meets on Sundays at 5.30pm to pray, eat together and enjoy time with friends, before joining the 6.30pm service.

During the Week

Everyone is welcome to come along to either of our midweek clubs for 11-18s, whether you come to church on Sundays or not!

OX1 (for school years 7-9)

OX1 is our group for youngsters from the local community. Join us from 7.15-8.15pm on Mondays (pick up from 7pm, drop off around 8.30pm in the parish). We enjoy playing games (favourites including lions and nerf wars), spending time with friends and having tasty snacks. But our central time each week is spent looking at a bit of the Bible together, where we discover Jesus and hear God speak to us.

Impact (for school years 9-13)

Impact meets on Fridays, 6.45-8.45pm, it’s a safe place where we aim to make everyone feel comfortable and at home very quickly. We spend time hearing God speak to us through his word and we love to think through all of the questions the youth have and apply the Bible to our lives. We also play games, eat food and make strong friendships here. It’s a brilliant evening and all are welcome!
