Youth

Our vision for youth is based upon Philippians 2:12-17; equipping and encouraging young people to “Shine like stars as they hold firmly to the word of life”

We are intentional in building a community that any young person can access to help them explore the story of God and all that God has for them.

Please see below for some of our activities.   If you would like to know more or talk about any of these in more detail please contact out Youth Co-coordinator Sharon Murphy on sharon@whitfieldparish.org

WHITFIELD YOUTH for ALL Youth across the Parish

Sundays 9.50am – 12.10pm

On Sundays at both churches (apart from the fourth Sunday of the month where we worship together as a church family) the young people meet together at The Vineyard.  Building a community of welcome and worship, these sessions are the opportunity for the young people to grow in faith, friendship, mission and their identity in Christ as they have fun together.   If you interested in coming along to find out a bit more please contact the Parish Office on 853330.

Youth church isn’t limited to just Sunday mornings

Mentoring

Mentoring offers our young people the one to one opportunity to spend time exploring faith, accountability and prayer with a mature Christian.

Socials & Weekends Away

Throughout the year we give our young people opportunities to grow in faith together through socials, sleepovers, conferences, weekends away and the opportunity to serve in church and in the wider community, showing Jesus’ love in action.  These activities involve lots of food and hopefully lots of fun!
