Youth

Welcome

If you have made your way to this page, welcome! During this unusual time of social distancing we are still meeting! We have a range of groups meeting weekly for Young People including our Friday night youth group Chill and our Sunday morning groups Salt and Light. 

Over the coming weeks we will be updating this page to bring you engaging, fun and faithful resources, such as quizzes, articles, worship videos and videos from the Youth team at Union Baptist Church. 

Chill Online!

Usually our Friday evening Youth Group for ages 11 - 17 would meet in person at The HUB, Union Baptist Church at 730pm, but with Covid-19 forcing us to stay socally distanced this isnt currently possible. It doesnt mean that we cant meet though! Over the past few months we have moved Chill online via Zoom which we will continue to do until it is safe to meet in person. 

This group is a space where Young People can laugh with friends, talk about their weeks and simply "Chill". We often play games for most of the session which we have been able to keep going online and finish with a very short thought for the week. 

For more information on this group please contact our Youth Pastor, Ben at the bottom of the page. 

 


Salt & Light

For the past few months our Sunday Morning Group "Salt & Light" for school year 7-13 has been meeting on Zoom.

This has been great as we have been able to stay in touch and learn about God and His plans for us and His world even in lockdown. 

I am even more excited though to announce that as of Sunday 13th September 2020 at 11:30am we will be meeting back in person again. The way this will work is we will meet at Union Baptist Church, outside and then make our way over to The Rye (the local park) where we can spread out and still spend time together in person. 

For more information on this group please contact our Youth Pastor, Ben at the bottom of the page. 

 

 


General Meet Ups

At this time we feel it is important to stay in touch and to spend time together whenever possible.

The easing of lockdown has allowed us to meet on a few occassions for ice-cream, football, picnics, etc. 

We plan on continuing these socials on top of our reglar weekly groups.

These meet ups will normally happen after school and during school holidays where we will continue to do fun and safe activities with the Young People. 

For more information on these groups please contact our Youth Pastor, Ben at the bottom of the page.  

 

 

 

 


Worship

Most weeks this page is updated with a video by our Youth Pastor, Ben Wilson as well as other members of Union Baptist Church. 

As part of this there is always a new worship song uploaded relating to that theme. 

Unfortunatly this week there is no video from Ben, but in the theme of meeting together again take a look at this weeks worship video!
