We have an active youth ministry and a great group of young people who are right at the heart of our church.
Friday night Youth is a social program with a variety of activities.Sometimes there are planned games, cooking, crafts, other times it is just a chill out zone with pool, table tennis, Wii, PS4, dodgeball, Giant Jenga and a cafe area. Sometimes it's a mixture.
On Wednesday some of the teens get together for the Youth Bible Study which is a fun and informative interactive evening of teaching and discussion.
The youth group is also part of a national and international network of youth groups and so there are several larger events throughout the year. A summer youth holiday, christmas party, weekend sleepover and mission trips to other churches around the UK and abroad are amongst the regular diet of yearly opportunities.
Several of the youth are musically gifted and so have formed a group that leads our Sunday morning worship service at least once per month. We also host regular youth emphasis services with guest speakers on Sunday evenings throughout the year.
A huge emphasis of the Church of the Nazarene is to genuinely empower young people to be involved in leadership and to take responsibility for ministries and activities. The youth elect their own leadership, govern their own finances and design their own program, supported but not dictated by adult youth leaders
