Youth

We are sorry to say that all of our youth groups, events and activities have been susspended or cancelled in light on the coronavirus outbreak (Covid-19). 

This does not mean that we can not meet though. 

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. 

Below you can find the latest video, brought to you by our Youth Pastor, Ben Wilson.

 

 

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. 

Last week we ran our first online groups! 

These were considered to be a real success and we would like to say a huge thank you to all the Young People who joined us and their parents for allowing this time to happen. 

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.

This weekend on Sunday we celebrate and remember Jesus entering Jerusalem for what would be in the end, the place where He would die on the cross for our sins. We know this Sunday as Palm Sunday. Below is a song for us to sing to the Lord as we remember what Jesus did for us and for what Jesus knew would happen to Him as he entered Jerusalem.

"The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Hosannain the highest heaven!”

Matthew 21:9 (NIV)
