Here at St Pauls Youth our vision is for young people to passionately pursue God and live courageous, purposeful and fulfilled lives.
How we seek to do this:
- Make it PERSONAL. Help young people to own their faith
- Realise POTENTIAL. Help young people to realise their God-given potential and walk in the fulness of all that he has for them
- Keep it PRACTICAL. Help young people to live out their faith wherever they are
If you are a young person between ages 11-18 we would love you to join us!
WHAT WE DO
On a Sunday morning we gather as a church family at 10:15am. After a time of worship our young people go to the following groups.
BRAVE. We want to equip our young people to live big, brave and adventurous lives with Jesus. Brave is for young people in school years 7-9 and meets each week.
RESOLUTE. Resolute means ‘purposeful, determined and unwavering’. This is who we want to be! Resolute is for young people in school years 10-13 and meets fortnightly.
On a Tuesday evening young people in school years 7-13 meet at church between 7 and 8:30pm. This is a time to have fun, eat cake, deepen friendships, encourage one another, pray together, dig deeper into the Bible and chat about those tough, awkward life topics.
Term time only.
As well as having regular weekly activities, it’s great to get out and do something a little different from time to time. We want young people to have opportunities to try new things and meet new people! Which is why we have half-termly events! Some of these are just for fun and some are a chance for us to gather with other Christians for worship or mission. Here are the dates for your diary for the rest of this school year…
|Friday 16th February||Boingzone|
|Sunday 15th April||Hillsong London|
|Tuesday 22nd May||Gillette Games|
|18th – 23rd August||Soul Survivor|
We are passionate about connecting with young people in our community and building relationships with those outside of church.
At the moment we are working in a local secondary school building relationships with young people and running a small group intervention programme called ‘All About You’. The 10 week programme helps students struggling with behaviour and confidence to raise their aspirations, boost confidence and handle emotions positively. We want young people to realise their potential!
We are really excited to be involved in setting up a new Youth Café- Lightbox- in the city along with a few other local churches. We want to attract young people who have no current connection to church, build relationships with them and build God’s Kingdom in that place, and to act as a bridge between those young people and the church. Plans are well under way for the launch in 2018 so watch this space!
