Our weekly youth club, Overflow, meets every Saturday from 7-9pm and offers a space to unwind and socialise with friends, with some games and snacks thrown in. We also have a group discussion about a different theme each week, using the Bible to explore how our faith in Jesus can impact our everyday lives. Aside from this weekly pattern, we also run Overflow trips out. These include outings to Christian events in Oxford and Soul Survivor's Saturday Celebrations in Watford, as well as social trips like bowling and ice skating. Once a month we hold an Overflow social, where we encourage our young people to bring their friends along for an evening of activities or a film.
On the 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month, the young people meet in The Mish from 10.30am for Youth Church. Here we look at the themes that are being explored in the main service as a youth group, using discussions and prayer activities to help us engage with the Bible and apply it to our lives. Once the session is finished, we walk up to the church together for the tea and coffee time at the end of the service. For the remaining Sundays, we worship together with the whole church family.
On 13-15 April we will be taking a group of young people on a weekend away to Woolhope Cockshoot, a retreat centre in Herefordshire. We expect it to be a fun-filled and rewarding time where we can explore the stunning surroundings, play games, get to know each other better and get to know God better.
Every summer we take a group of young people to Soul Survivor, a big Christian festival in Peterborough. Here around 9,000 young people gather together for a week of fun, laughter and above all, worshipping and getting to know God.
If you would like to know any further details about our youth activities, including information letters about the weekend away and Soul Survivor, please email our Youth Worker, Dave, at email@example.com.
