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. 

This week we are going to be showing you something from our Friday evening Youth Group - Chill! 

This week we are being joined virtually by our mission partners Matt and Rachel McNulty who currently live in Perth, Australia. Please do take a look at what they had to share with the Young People about mission this week!

 This will premiere Friday 24th July 2020 at 8pm once it has been shown at Chill. 

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.

In this weeks video Rachel leaves us with a great prayer and although that prayer is for the Young People of Chill, we encourage you to pray the prayer yourself and to take it upon yourself as well.

A big part of mission springs from what rasies emotion within us, what breaks our hearts and where we see the need to act and where we see Jesus calling us. The following song references this with the lyrics 2 Break my heart for what breaks yours". Pray that God would show you what breaks his heart this week, pray that God would show you where he wants you to be acting at the moment. 

 

Weekly Challange

two weeks ago Ben set the 9th weekly challenge - The freeze-frame Challenge!

The winner has been chosen. With an awesome, creative and impressive freeze-frame, the winner is.........

Ben with this awesome freeze-frame of a wheely on his bike!

This week Ben (Youth Pastor) challenges you to the 10th weekly challenge. Due to the lack of entrants in our previous challenge that chalenge has been made null and is being replaced with a new one! - The Camoflage Challange 

Your task is to camoflage yourself in a picture in whatever way possible. The only rules are that you must be in the picture. You can either dress in a way that makes you camoflaged or place yourself somewhere that camoflage's you. This is a picture challenge and the person considered the best camoflaged wins!

Over the next two weeks each young person who wants to give this ago can submit 2 attempts to the Youth WhatsApp group chat and the person with the most success in the challange (judged by Ben) has their story or video uploaded to this webpage and recieves their own certificate online next week. 

Mega Challenge

Over the last few months we have continued to challange the Young People in various ways and have been amazed by the outcome, so in addition to those challenges, we have decided to add a mega challenge to the mix. 

The idea is that all Young People, students, and young adults can enter this contest which is designed to take a decent amount of time to complete. 

We are offering a huge reward for this challenge as well. As you may have seen over the past few months, Ben's hair has grown rather long and Ben has been encouraged several times by the Young People to shave it, so, the prize which will be awareded to the winner of the mega challenge will be to shave Ben's head (Once lockdown and social distancing messures allow). Ben is going to continue to grow his hair during this time and will film his head being shaved by the winner at a later date!

So, what is the challenge you ask? well everyone who can enter has until 1st September 2020 to complete the most intracite, most complex, creative and technicle Marble run (if you dont own or have any marbles, any round object will do).

To demonstrate what is being looked for, check out the video below. 

 

The winner will be chosen by a select pannel of people, including Ben's wife, Grace. 

Dont miss out on this opportunity!
