Our recently launched new youthwork brings together young people aged between 13 and 18 (school years 8 – 13). We gather every Sunday night – sometimes at different houses – as we share this adventure of navigating life! We watch videos, talk about life and eat Karen’s amazing homemade cookies.
We currently have young people from Kenilworth School, KES Stratford, and Stratford Girls’ School, Shottery.
“We determine our future by the best use of our present.”
Some of our young people have recently spoken at different services and led worship. Several have taken the step to be baptised (in an outdoor swimming pool) or confirmed – which has been a joy to witness!
As well as meeting up every Sunday night, we also help to run the First Sunday gathering which happens every month in St Nick’s church. It’s a modern worship gathering with music, a short talk, great coffee & cake and a real mixture of people from across the church family. (as well as other churches)
We sometimes visit other churches on a Sunday night like Gas Street Church in Birmingham centre, known for its amazing music led by Tim Hughes and Worship Central.
We also play a large part in the annual Kenilworth Youth Weekend Away, where over 30 young people join together from Kenilworth churches.
This age is a time of transition and we want our young people to share it together, support each other and build friendships that last a lifetime. We have a lot of fun, but we also talk about the things that really matter and ways we can help each other get through – by looking at what God says and praying together. We love developing leaders as well, so we encourage our older youth to act as role models by speaking, sharing and leading.
All of our leaders are fully trained in safeguarding through the Diocese of Coventry. If you know a young person who would be excited to come and meet us all, please email our coordinators Keith & Kate Ayling from this page.
