Welcome to our youth ministry at St John’s! We are thrilled to have you visit our website and learn more about the exciting opportunities we offer for young people (11-18year olds) in our congregation.
At St John’s, we understand the importance for young people to feel part of a community where they can grow in friendships and faith. That’s why we gather together every Wednesday and Sunday, along with socials and other events, to create a space where young minds can connect, grow in their faith, and build lasting friendships.
Our youth gatherings are not just events; we seek to transform, inspire, empower, and equip the young people to live out their faith with boldness.
We invite you to explore how you can get involved by scrolling down.
Join a team!
At St John’s we believe a big part of being a member of a church is to serve. Therefore, we love to see our young people serving in the church and we have so many opportunities for them to do so! You can join the worship team, the kids team, the welcome team, tech team, hospitality team or anything else you’d like! If you’d like to get involved, please contact the Sam Bailey.
Ignited is our Sunday Youth Group. This happens one the fourth Sunday of the month. It is a great chance to meet and build relationships. Both with God and with one another. We look to ignite their faith and send them out to spread God’s Word. We achieve all of this through playing games, Bible Studies, prayer, and worship.
Wednesday Night Youth!
At Wednesday Night Youth, we aim to create a fun environment that is enjoyable and where friendships can grow and develop. There are loads of fun activities to do! We have pool, table tennis, video games, crafts, and more! We also have times of discussion about loads of different topics that are relevant to young people today. So come along and join us on Wednesday’s in term time from 6:30pm to 8pm in the Crypt at St John’s.
