The youth work at Above Bar Church seeks to Enable young people to Engage with God by:
Enjoying one another, Experiencing his love and being Equipped for whole life discipleship.
This means that the young people at Above Bar Church are given a community to be part of, a great programme of events to come to, an opportunity to explore the christian faith and for those that are Christians, to have loads of opportunities to get to know him better.
There are three youth groups at Above Bar Church:
- The Box for those in school years 7 - 8
- Engage for those in school years 9 - 11
- Rooted for those in school years 10 - 13
We want to teach the Bible in a way that is relevant to the lives of young people today, to help you discover who Jesus is and grow in your faith.
The Box (school years 7 - 8)
Each Sunday (during the 11.15am service at our City site) we spend time together as a family catching up on the week. We will then head to groups to look at the Bible together in an open and interesting way. On Thursdays from 7.00 to 8:30pm, in the 69 Above Bar Street, we look at what God has to say about important issues in life and we run a whole load of fun activities.
Come along on a Thursday or Sunday, or contact Aaron if you’d like to find out more about The Box.
Engage (school years 9 - 11)
Each Sunday (during the 11.15am service at our City site) we spend time together playing some games as a group, catching up and then engage with the Bible to hear from God. We will also spend some weeks in the main church service learning how to be a part of the main church on Sundays. On Thursdays from 7.00 to 8.30pm, in the 69 Above Bar Street, we look at what God has to say about important issues in life and we run a whole load of fun activities.
Come along on a Thursday or Sunday, or contact Aaron if you’d like to find out more about Engage.
Rooted (school years 12 - 13)
Rooted meets in some leaders home every other Monday from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. We also try to meet to do more social things around this time. Many of the Rooted members are helping out at church which is a really exciting part of being a member.
If you’d like to get involved then contact Aaron to find out more about Rooted.
Weekends and weeks away
Once a year, each group has a weekend away, packed with fun, excitement and stretching teaching. In the summer and Easter holidays we encourage young people to attend various conferences. This may include us taking groups away.
