St Andrew’s is a church for all ages — whether you are young, old, or in-between, you are more than welcome here. One of the things we love to be is a church where young people are known, valued, and supported to grow in faith and friendship together.
Our youth work and groups are hosted and led by our youth worker, Jess Bent, along with an amazing group of volunteers.
Sunday Evening Youth Group – Twice Monthly
Our Sunday Youth Group is a space for 11 to 18s to meet together, socialise, grow in confidence, and share ideas. We meet at St Andrew’s Hall on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of most months, from 5:30pm to 7:00pm to hang out, talk about life and faith, and enjoy dinner together.
We are a youth group for all young people in our local community, whatever your background or beliefs (you don’t have to be a regular church-goer to come!) — if you are aged 11 to 18 and would like to come along to try youth group out, get in touch with Jess for more details.
Sunday Morning WHY Group – Once Monthly
Our WHY Group is for all those aged 11-18 who want an opportunity to go deeper into the Bible and explore creative ways of praying. We meet for one hour from 10am to 11am on the second Sunday of each month at St Andrew’s Hall.
Just like our youth group, WHY Group is for all young people in our local community. If you’d like to give it a try, get in touch with Jess.
Midweek Groups (for young people aged 11-18)
St Andrew’s has a tradition of forming midweek groups which meet after school for fun, prayer, and spending time in the Bible. We are currently in the process of establishing some new groups. If you would like to be involved in a small group, or to have a conversation to find out more, contact Jess.
St Andrew’s has a Safeguarding Policy which is actively applied and monitored. Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Rachel Clarke.
