Our youth work is all about inspiring a new generation to love God, to love others and to change the world that we live in. Our name – ALLOY stands for “A Life Less Ordinary Youth.” We believe that as followers of Jesus our lives are anything but ordinary and that we have an exciting future to look forward to! Our youth team leaders run a range of events on Sundays and during the week and everyone between the ages of 11 and 18 years are very welcome to come along. View details all of our activities below.
Sundays are a great time to get together to learn more about God. During the morning service we meet up with the youth team leaders for our own age-specific meeting, which is gospel-centered and fun. We hang out together, chat, pray and discuss topics that are relevant to our lives today. It’s a great place to worship God and share how Jesus makes a difference in our lives.
Sunday evenings are a time to meet together for a mixed programme of events and activities.
We go on trips and get involved in lots of activities throughout the year, such as going to the cinema, trampolining, beach trips and worship events. We also go on an inter-church annual youth retreat. This is a great opportunity to grow deeper in our faith, meet new friends and build our relationships with other church youth groups.
Youth Life Groups
Want to know more about what it really means to follow Jesus?
If you do, then come along to life group! Helping each other engage with the Bible and discovering how it applies to everyday life is what life group is really all about. We have opportunity to ask questions, discuss and debate important and sometimes difficult issues and explore the Christian faith together in a safe, relaxed environment. It’s a great opportunity to go deeper with God and to encourage and support one another as we learn to live out our Christian lives.
We want to encourage our young people to use their gifts and talents and get involved in church life. Our youth band is just one of the ways that we can do this. If you love to play an instrument or enjoy singing, come and join us as we worship God together! We practice every week and lead the music in the Church service once a month.
We are always looking for new talent, so if you’ve got some – please get in touch!
There are also exciting opportunities to be involved in some real mission work. We currently sponsor children in Uganda through a charity called Drumbeat Children’s Foundation, and every two years we take a group of young people on an international mission trip. It’s a great way to get involved with young people from different cultures and backgrounds and to share our faith and experiences together.
