Welcome to the Youth section of our website! Here you'll find details of all our regular youth activities - however if you'd like to be kept up to date with our upcoming schedule and one-off activities, drop an email to our youth worker, Dave, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Overflow meets every Saturday from 7-9pm and is a great opportunity to socialise with friends, and enjoy some great games, activities and of course snacks! 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 Saturday 15th December we'll be holding our Overflow Christmas party! We'll be meeting at the usual time of 7-9pm in The Mish, but with a fancy dress theme based around the nativity, with a prize for the most obscure costume.
Space is our after-school drop-in, which runs every Wednesday in term time from 3-5pm in The Mish. Here young people get the chance to unwind after a day at school with table tennis, pool, xbox and table football on offer, as well as group games and of couse some snacks! Space is designed to be accessible to all - whether you're a regular at St Clement's or a first-timer, you're guaranteed to have fun and make some friends.
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.
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. Next year we will be going to Week B, which runs from 17th-22nd August 2019. For further details about the trip and to get a consent form, email Dave at email@example.com.
