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 always pray, share and encourage honesty and questions as we journey together.

Impact (years 9 & 10)

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now and don’t’ get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help u deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes” Matt 6 v34

On Sundays: meet in the Coxwell Room each Sunday morning at the 10:30am service.

Impact & Respect House Group: (years 9-11) meet most Wednesday nights in term time from 7:30 to 8:45pm followed by refreshments. The young people lead sung worship and then we look at something topical from the Bible and we pray, share and encourage one another in our faith and Jesus journey.

Fusion Youth Club

FUSION youth club happens most Thursdays during term time at Cirencester Baptist Church.

Members enjoy air-hockey, pool, table tennis, craft activities, PS2 and 3, Wii, Xbox1 and a tuck shop, all for just £1 a session! The aim is to provide a non-threatening, fun environment for young people and their friends. In fact, our mission statement says it all “SHARING GOD’S LOVE”

        Fusion is for those in years 6,7 and 8 and runs between 6:30 and 7:45pm

     Fusion+

        Fusion+ is for those in years 9, 10 and 11 and runs from 8 – 9:15pm .

 

Revive Youth Events

Once a month on a Wednesday night from 6:45 – 9pm all the house groups gather together at our church building 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.
