We want to see a generation of young people encounter God and discover who they are! Our youth team run fantastic youth work on Sundays, fun youth clubs and small groups during the week, plus regular outings to things like ice skating, camping trips, Soul Survivor, Wildfires and more. There’s something safe and fun for every age group, whether or not you’re used to church.
Matt, Jaz, Sam, Ella and the team also work in lots of the local schools during the week, supporting young people one-to-one, so they’re well known and popular throughout the area!
Our youth and children’s workers are DBS checked and trained to ensure maximum child safety in all our activities.
Most of our activities take place either at Founders Studio, The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre or The Lighthouse Barnsbury. Find details on our venues here.
Soul Survivor: 23rd-28th August 2019
Every summer we head to Soul Survivor, a huge youth festival, to gather together with thousands of others in Peterborough to camp in a field, worship God, learn what it means to live for Jesus in every area of our lives, to pray for one another, and to have loads of fun! This year is the last ever Soul Survivor festival so make sure you don't miss out! Book your tickets HERE.
Younger Youth Weekend Away: 15th-17th November 2019
Join us for our Younger Youth Weekend Away (school years 6-9)! We'll be spending the weekend at Carroty Wood Activity Centre near Tonbridge doing awesome activities, hanging out and worshipping God. It's going to be so much fun! Click HERE to book your place!
Guildford Morning Service: 10.00am at Yvonne Arnaud
At our Guildford morning service we provide fun activities for all ages. For youth in year 6-9 we run youth church. We have snacks, games consoles, loads of games, time to hang out with friends, worship and we learn about what it means to follow Jesus. There are also groups for 0-10 year olds.
That's not all - once a month, during our Guildford morning service, we take all the older youth in year 10+ out for breakfast at Wetherspoons. Meet us at the Yvonne Arnaud and we'll walk over to Wetherspoons from there. No need to bring any cash, breakfast is on us! Dates for breakfast this term are:
Sunday 19th May
Sunday 9th June
Sunday 28th July
Woking Morning Service: 9.30am at Hoe Valley School
At our Woking morning service we run an awesome group for year 6+. There's food, games consoles, loads of fun and we learn about what it means to follow Jesus. There are also groups for 0-10 year olds.
Guildford Evening Service: 6.30pm at Founders Studio
A bunch of the older youth go along to the evening service. We all sit together and have a great time!
Collectives are our midweek discipleship groups for 10-18 year olds. We meet every week on Mondays or Tuesdays to eat dinner together, hang out and explore what it means to follow Jesus. There are currently 4 Youth Collectives:
Year 6+7 Collective (Tuesdays)
Year 8+9 Collective (Mondays)
Year 10+11 Collective (Tuesdays)
Year 12+ Collective (Mondays)
Gro Groups are similar to Collectives but they're smaller and meet on Sundays before or after church, and usually in coffee shops! Particularly good if you live further away or can't get along to a Collective during the week!
If you'd like to join a Youth Collective or a Gro Group or would like some more info, drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Bible Study is an opportunity to go deeper into the bible. If you'd like to discover more about how God speaks to us through his word, join us Wednesdays, 5.30-6.30pm at Founders.
