For young people at High School, a chance to explore the Bible in more depth and find out about living as Christian today. Our DBS checked and safeguarding trained leaders are warm and welcoming.
Recent activities have included short performances in church of Bible stories, finding out about (and experiencing) the tastes and smells of the Bible, Christmas around the world, and, the star of Bethlehem. Gaining valuable life skills, our young people now perform, give readings in church and have recently written and led the prayers in the all age service.
A key theme for 2018 has been God loves each and every one of us, saint or sinner, and gives a voice to the weakest in society.
Join us in church at 10am. All are welcome.
