Who we are!

Everyone involved has signed up to the Churches Child Protection Policy and been CRB checked


Youth Groups

We have a number of different groups that meet regularly and focus on a variety of things - sometimes discipleship, worship, or teaching, or a space where young people can come and hang out in a place to call their own. At the core of all these groups lies an emphasis on our values of discipleship, community and mission.





Whether it's a place to have some fun or to explore the Christian faith we hope to have somewhere that you may feel comfortable in trying out.

SUNDAY Wired (sch years 6 & 7) Morning Service 10am - 11.30am
  Wired Up (Sch years 8-11) Morning Service 10am - 11.30am
  Open House - a social after the evening service at the Centre
or someone's house (till 10pm, for 14+)


TUESDAY Youth Band, fortnightly, 7pm - 8.30pm.
From 8pm the band joins with the rest of the worship teams for a time of
worship together. To lead people in worship we must first be worshippers.

  Wired Up (Sch years 8-11) 8pm - 10pm


PODs (Places of Discipleship) 

  • These are small, single sex groups that meet regularly, usually bi-weekly, and stay together until 6th Form age where the groups merge. The same leaders stay with the group throughout to provide consistent support through the adolescent years.
  • POD Altogether is an evening where we bring all the POD groups together, usually for food and a particular focus (in the past this has been church life, creative worship, or prayer).
Recently one of the PoD groups went on a sponsored cycle ride along the Downs Link to Shoreham (35 miles) to raise money for the Building Project.
Here are some of the photos:
