God loves young people. It’s personal.

Guildford Baptist Church

That’s why we believe it’s important to keep relationship at the heart of everything we do.

It’s our core value and underpins our vision as we seek to build:

    • Our relationships with young people
    • The young people’s relationships with each other
    • Strong relationships in the life of our local community
    • Their relationships with their Father, God

What We Do…  

Mornings

Sunday Morning Youth is a place where you can eat food, hang out together, and discuss topics relevant to young people. We often look at particular Bible characters or we’ll look at a theme and incorporate lessons from scripture into the discussion.

Join us in the Auditorium and we will leave for our groups after some worship!

We’ll do a session in separate groups, and then come together in the Hub to hang out for a bit.

Younger Youth (Year 7&8) –

The Hub (2nd floor)

Older Youth (Year 9+) –

The Cafe (Ground floor)

10-11.30am

Evenings

Our Sunday evening hang-out, where we meet in the Hub or go to hosts from the church’s houses to spend time together and have a laugh. We often get treated to some yummy snacks and maybe some fun activities provided by our great hosts (we’ll let you know who’s hosting each week).

Why don’t you join us at our 6.30pm service first?

Events and Trips

Meet the Team  

Adrian

Youth Pastor

Adrian recently joined us here at Millmead in May 2022. Bringing over 30 years of Youth work experience, Adrian has worked in many roles from church-based work to statutory Youth services and charity-based youth services. Originally from Scunthorpe (though don’t hold that against him), Adrian trained as a Hydraulic Engineer but always felt Youth work was where he was meant to be. After meeting Rachel his now wife at Uni in Cambridge, God called him into Youth work full-time through studying Youth Work and Theology in Oxford. He’s now here to share his experiences and strengthen our already well-established team.

In his free time, he loves walking with Rachel and his two dogs, Monty and Doodle.

Abby

Youth Worker

Abby has been a part of Millmead since 2016 when she moved to Guildford to complete her 3 year placement for her Theology & Youth Ministry degree at St Mellitus College, London. Before that, she grew up in Crawley and studied Education Studies at the University of Winchester. After finishing studying, she stayed on as our Youth Worker.

In her spare time she likes to be with her family and friends, watching films she’s seen millions of times, and you can always make her happy with a Wagamama!
