Youth at Saint James

It’s been a real joy for youth groups to start meeting together again. Some things are different than before, but the young people have taken to it with enthusiasm!

I think everyone’s just glad to be back together. One young person said “it’s been so nice praying together – I didn’t think that anybody would pray out loud, but then they did and it was really nice!”

At St. James we want young people to belong. Our aim is to work with parents to help grow a generation of disciple-making disciples. We’ve currently got a reduced programme because of COVID, but we have been able to open up activities on Sundays and midweek.

Sunday Youth

On Sundays we currently run two youth services (which means we’re allowed to meet in groups of more than 15). The Boat is for year 7-9 and meets from 4-5pm. You can sign your young person up for the Boat here: https://the2stjames.churchsuite.co.uk/events/l71ptqhn

Resonate is for year 10-13 and meets from 6:30-7:30pm. You can sign your young person up here: https://the2stjames.churchsuite.co.uk/events/sbbmcbaq

At the youth services there’s always time to hang out and catch up with friends (socially distanced), there’s also time to hear from the Bible, to pray together, and to listen to some Christian songs – because we’re not allowed to sing currently. Everyone is welcome to come and join in!

Midweek Youth

The River is a Bible study and fellowship group for young people in year 7-year 9.  Everyone in those year groups is welcome to join us – whether you’re a Christian or just interested, we’d love to see you! We meet on Tuesdays from 5-6pm. Sign up here: https://the2stjames.churchsuite.co.uk/events/hirroice
