Our team of professional youth workers, interns and volunteers run fantastic youth work on Sundays, fun youth clubs during the week, plus regular outings to things like ice skating, camping trips, Soul Survivor, Focus and more. There’s something safe and fun for every age group, whether or not you’re used to church.
Matt, Jessica, Sam and the team also work in most of the local schools during the week, supporting children and young people one-to-one, so they’re well known and popular throughout the area!
All our youth and children’s workers are fully DBS checked and are vetted and trained to ensure maximum child safety in all our activities.
Most of our activities take place either at Allen House, Founders Studio or the Yvonne Arnaud. Find details on our venues.

We believe that the key to growing in our relationship with Jesus and with each other is having good people around us to encourage us, challenge us and support us. Gro Groups are small groups of three young people and one adult leader who meet up every two weeks to hang out, pray together, look at the bible and encourage each other. We think that being part of one of these groups will transform your relationship with God and the way you look at life. If you'd like to join a Gro Group, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, send us a DM on Instagram at @emmrdyouth or chat to one of the team in person.
