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.

Dynamic

Dynamic is a four day camp run together by Chichester Baptist Church, Guildford Baptist Church, Thornhill Baptist Church, St Paul Burseldon and Holy Trinity Weston aimed specifically at 11-14 year olds (those finishing school years 6-9). Dynamic is an action packed Christian residential camp. The camp will involve sport, craft, worship, Bible teaching, small groups, evening entertainment, food, the chance to make lots of friends and a special trip to the New Forest Aqua Park.

Please note spaces are limited and once you have signed up you will be sent a link to make the payment for the ticket that needs to be made by the end of May. If you require financial help for this trip, please do book a ticket and then speak to us about this.

Meet the Team  

Adrian

Youth Pastor

Adrian 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 (but 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 his wife, Rachel, at Uni in Cambridge, God called him into Youth work full-time through studying Youth Work & 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 & Social Media Lead

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, but felt called into Youth work before going into her final year. After her Theology & Youth Ministry studies, she stayed on as our Youth Worker and has seen Millmead’s Youth Ministry go through many different seasons and changes!

In her free time, she likes to be with her family and friends, Irish Dancing, and you can always make her happy with a Wagamama!
