Our young people meet each Sunday morning in their discussion and study group.
We also partner with St John’s Anglican Church (400m further up Leyland Lane):
- Level 3 Youth Club, for 11 to 14's on Wednesday nights from 7.15pm till 9pm
- Discover – a discipleship group for year 9 and over, Sunday evenings 7-9pm
- The Impact Youth Weekend is a regular part of our programme, this is run each October by the North Western Baptist Association with over 100 young people and leaders from Baptist churches across the North West.
Other recent youth events have included:
- A mission trip to Ecuador in 2013. We helped to run a children’s holiday Bible club in conjunction with the charity Hand in Hand based in Quito. This was a brilliant experience for the whole team of 8 people who, even with limited Spanish, accomplished a great deal, with over 60 children at times in the afternoon, and 50 young people in the evening, throughout their 2 week stay. The young people were involved in arts, crafts, sport, storytelling, music, dance, drama and puppets. Two of the team spent their time re-roofing a classroom.
- Learning about homelessness
- By sleeping in cardboard boxes in the car park and cooking on a budget
- Raising money for SLEAP (a homeless charity for young people) – by busking in Chorley
