Our team at St. John’s put a great deal of emphasis on teaching children and youth about Jesus in a fun and engaging way. Many programmes, events, courses and clubs are run for those in our church family and also the wider community.
During the 10.15 Sunday morning service we run bible related activities and study sessions for children and youth up to year 9.
On Thursday mornings our parents and tots group Oasis meets at 10:00am until 11.30am during term time. It’s a great way to catch up and support one another over a coffee and snack. There’s also a time of prayer and bible stories with the little ones.
We run Youth Bible Study on Thursday evenings, term time, between 7:45 and 9:15pm in the church centre. It’s a lively time of discussion and games. There are also specially organised one-off youth weekends away, Christmas celebrations and social events.
If you’d like to find out more about our youth and childrens’ programme, just contact the church office.
We spend the first 10 to 15 minutes of Youth Bible Study talking and catching up with everyone, and drinks and snacks are offered.
After that for just under an hour there will be a bible study. This usually includes a video clip, then reading from the bible and discussion. For the remaining time we have games which are always a fun way to end the evening.
It’s the highlight of my week! A great weekly reminder of my faith, it’s given me a greater understanding of the bible, and has given me so many new friends.
