AYP! is a group for Year 7-11 that meets every other Sunday during the service for friendship, faith and fun. To connect with this group or ask any questions, please email the leaders here (please note it may take some days to reply).
We find those in Sixth Form are ready for something different and so are encouraged to start using their gifts in service in some capacity — i.e., on the sound/vision desk, playing/singing in the worship band, helping with children’s work, welcome team… (This is not a deal breaker and they are welcome to remain in the group.) Often an informal group is formed to support their discipleship or we chat about enabling 1-2-1 support.
We also work in partnership with Thrive Youth Ministries and join with other churches in attending their annual Base Camp weekend away. It’s always a popular event.
There are also plans for a regular in-person social gathering to be formed. More news will be posted when it seems viable for both our youth and volunteers.
