Youth

If you have made your way to this page, welcome! During this unusual time of lockdown and 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. 

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

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. 

Over the coming weeks videos will be slightly different. Some will be thoughts for the week and some will be testimonies from various people from Union Baptist Church. This week Senior Pastor, Malcolm Hazell shares a short testimony with us. Check out what Malcolm shares on the video below. 

We realise that a lot of people at the moment will be feeling fearful, anxious and confused in these strange and unsettling days, but we want to reassure you that we are still here for you to offer support, friendship, community and prayer. 

Join us again for this weeks groups!

This week all of the groups that ran last week on Zoom will be happening again!

Please contact Ben at the bottom of the page.

More information about these groups will be released via email this week so please do get in touch at the bottom of the page. 

Our Youth Pastor, Ben, is also contactable via email and Whatsapp, so if you need guidance, support or prayer, then please do get in touch. 

Please find the link at the bottom of the page that you will need to go through to get in touch.

Malcolm references the song 'Great is Thy Faithfullness' please do check out this song below. Malcolm also references Revelations 19:6-9 during his testimony. Be encourged to read up on these verses and dig deep into God's word.

You will also find the recently released 'UK Blessing' which is a song of worship that has been sung by churches all over the UK. 

Revelations 19: 6-9 (NIV)

" Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah!
    For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad
    and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
    and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean,
    was given her to wear.”
(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)
Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.””

During this time when we can be confused with the different changes in lockdown, its important that we come close to God, that we pray to God and that we make the most of the relationship God gives us. Sometimes though it can be hard to pray or to know how to pray, sometimes we dont feel like our prayers will be heard. well this week I (Ben) came across this video by CVUK, I strongly encourage you give this a watch.
