Youth

Welcome

If you have made your way to this page, welcome! As we enter our third national lockdown we are very pleased to say that we are continuing to gather together, even if that is online! It is such a joy and privilege to be able to laugh together, learn together and grow together during this time, even when we can't be physically close! 

Below you will find everything happening for Young People during this time and much, much more, including the start of a brand new youth competition!!


Chill Online!

Our Friday evening Youth Group for ages 11 - 17 will continue to meet on Zoom on Friday nights during term time. The groups will begin at 7:30pm and last no more than an hour. These groups will be focused on having fun, catching up and supporting each other, as well as finishing with a short, faith-based thought for the week. 

Chill Online is designed to be a place where young people can come and relax and speak honestly about their weeks and seek support from our leaders. A welcome escape from the unique world we currently find ourselves in.

For more information on this group, please contact our Youth Pastor, Ben

 


Salt & Light

Salt and Light is our Sunday morning group for school years 7 to 13 that takes place alongside the weekly church service. This group will continue to meet online at 10:45am every Sunday morning on Zoom and will focus on what is being taught in the church services, just simply adapted for young people. 

These groups are designed to offer fun and creative ways of learning more about the Christian faith and going deeper with Jesus. We play games (even online), spend time reading the Bible, praying and worshipping God together!

For more information on this group, please contact our Youth Pastor, Ben at the bottom of the page. 


Youth Competition

In the past we have hosted some awesome, creative contests and challenges for Young People such as: fancy dress challenge, tea bag trick shot challenge and the marble run challenge!

This term we are changing it up a bit and starting an offical competition for the Young People, Students and Young Adults.

In this competition you will be set silly, fun and challenging tasks that can be completed in several ways and it's up to you to figure out how you best want to do it, but watch out for those tricky wordings. 

Our Youth Pastor, Ben will be the host and judge of each of these tasks and will be keeping a tally/scoreboard throughout the term and will give out points for each challange. The winner at the end of the term (April) will win a large Easter Egg!

Hold tight, first challenge coming soon!!

*Competition based on the TV show; Taskmaster.


Worship

During this time it is important that we remember to worship. No matter the situation, God deserves all of our praise and worship. 

With that being said, new music videos, weekly thoughts and other inspiring and creative videos will be posted here for you to watch, digest and worship along with. 

This week's worship video is actually from our very own Chloe from UBC and her university chior.

If there is anything we can help with or any questions you would like to ask us please do contact Ben@unionbaptist.org.uk
