breaking of bread service
Grace Youth is youth group that accepts young people from school year 6 to year 9.
We would love to invite you to come down on a Friday during term time from 7:30 till 9pm, and be involved as we move through the year together. Wacky games & unique snacks are only half the picture. We often share the Christian message, and engage in many other discussions relevant to young people. We ask open ended questions and encourage discussion; providing space and allowing them to come to there own conclusions. Twice a year we give the young people the opportunity to involved in unique and funny dramas, at Christmas and Easter giving them opportunities to boost their confidence.
We understand that whilst some of us want to run wild and burn off lots of energy, others prefer more interactive approaches and we do our best to meet the balance. Every February we head out on an indoor trip, in 2017 we went Ice Skating at Blackburn ice arena. In 2018 we went bowling at the local Ten Pin located inside the same building as Vue.
During the Summer we always make sure to go out with a bang, and our weekenders are just how we do that. Last year we slept over at the Church - and put on lots of games, pancake workshops and other activities; before heading to Water World. Though we have also gone to Alton Towers and other venues in the past. We make sure to budget well throughout the year so we can subsidize this trip as much as possible. Giving as many as possible the opportunity to get involve.
We are located at Grace Pentecostal Church Blackburn but anyone is welcome to join.
We have a variety of young people that attend a variety of schools and come from different backgrounds.
All our adult leaders are DBS checked. We work with the Pais Project and the leaders get involved in the training opportunities they provide.
