Youth work

Youth Church on Sunday

Youth Church

Is an informal session for secondary school aged young people. We have relaxed discussion or activities across a range of faith based subjects.

Recent topics have included:

  • Jesus and justice, taking a look at some of the amazing things Jesus said and did, writing blessings tied to helium balloons
  • Discussing aspects of life with God by making giant ice cream sundaes of life

We're a friendly bunch!

Youth Groups in the week

LINKS for year 7 to 11.

Monday evening from 7pm to 8.30pm

Links is a weekly youth club for secondary school aged young people, supported by Downton Churches Together.
It offers young people from different schools a chance to come together on a Monday evening for chilling out, friendship, music, pool, table tennis, drumming…the list is very long, and ends with the most popular activity of all - plenty of goodies from the tuck shop.

Everyone is very welcome.
