Local Youth Groups
There are loads of youth groups in local churches that you can connect with, either to find out more about faith or to simply have a lot of fun with friends. There are also different services and support groups designed just for young people.
Below are some links to local groups and events. Do contact us if you want more information or help with finding a group and we'll do our best to find one that suits you.

An amazing team of youth workers (some you may have met at school) run various after school drop-ins and evening/weekend youth groups. Visit their website for all the information.
Ignite is a youth group for 10-14 year olds. They meet during the Sunday 10.30am service and again in the evening (5-6.30pm in term time) at the parish centre, where they read the Bible together, eat snacks and play games.
Re:Fuel is for 15-18 year olds. It's a relaxed environment for young people to explore faith and discipleship as they head into their late teens and all the challenges of a changing world. They have fun - often at a venue with an activity like bowling - explore the Bible and think about what it means to be a Christian in contemporary culture.
They meet on a Sunday evening at 6.30-8pm in the parish centre.
All the information you need is on their website.
