Our vision for Youth Ministry at CBC is “helping young people explore the love of God.” We believe it is so important to give time and space for young people to connect directly with God in a variety of ways. We are all different, and God loves to connect with all of us.

Our youth ministry caters for young people secondary school aged 11-18, with groups at our 10:30am service, and house groups in evenings during the week. Each group has a Bible verse, that we pray for the young people in their group over the year.

Run-down of Youth Groups:

Ignite (years 7 and 8)

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1 v9

On Sundays: meet in Room 2 on the ground floor of church each Sunday morning at the 10:30am service.

Ignite Housegroup: (11-13 year olds) meet Wednesday nights 6.15 for drinks, cakes and biscuits with the session starting at 6.30-7.30.  The young people lead sung worship and then we tend to play a game or have an activity which will help them link into the Bible passage or theme  of the evening.  We are currently looking at God’s character.  We always pray, share and encourage honesty and questions as we journey together.

Revive Youth Events

Revive BatteriesOnce a month on a Wednesday night from 6:45 – 9pm all the house groups gather together at our Coxwell Street premises for an hour of youth led worship, talks and prayer. This is a safe place for our young people to use their gifts and talents and to invite their friends to learn more about our faith.

Revive is usually held on the 3rd Wednesday for each month.

For the final hour we socialise together around the table tennis and pool table as well as the games consoles and tuck shop.

The monthly youth programme can be viewed simply by clicking the link below. For more information, please contact Bob Morris via the Church office.
