Youth (11-18)

On Sundays

There are fun, friendly, interactive and engaging Bible teaching groups for young people aged 11-14 at the 9:45am congregation and for 14-18s at the 6:30pm congregation.

Pathfinders is for young people in school years 6-9 and runs during the 9:45am service. We meet for fun, friendship and growing in Jesus together through his word. In the holidays, we sometimes stay in the service and listen to the sermon – contact Wes Xu for more information about this.

Impact is for young people in school years 10-13 and meets on Sundays at 5:45pm to chill out together with tea, tasty goodies and games, 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 10-14s

Join us from 7-8:15pm on Tuesdays (pick up at 6:45pm, drop off at 8:30pm in the parish) for a fantastic mix of activities, games and Bible teaching. We hang out together with pool, table football, table tennis and XBox. We also play outdoor games, enjoy exciting team challenges, and go on trips out every term.

Impact for 14-18s

We meet on Fridays, 6:45-8:45pm, for an exciting evening of fun. We play crazy games, hear a Bible talk and discuss it in small groups, and then enjoy dinner together. It’s a brilliant evening and all are welcome!
