Youth Groups

Sunday Mornings

youth-activityEdge Sundays

During the 10.45am service on a Sunday there are a variety of activities organised for young people (years 7-13).

On the first Sunday there is an All Age service.

On the 2nd and 4th Sundays we split into two groups, active and reflective, that use games, discussion and drama to learn more about what it means to be a Christian today and in the future and address particular issues that young people face.

On the 3rd Sunday we have Edge breakfast, an informal time to share food and hear someone’s story.

Weekly Events

youth-cookingEdge Plus

On Tuesdays at 7pm (term time) in the Upstairs Hall of the Saint Andrew’s Centre we have Edge Plus for Years 10-13. The young people engage with God’s word—the Bible—in exciting and relevant ways to see what it might be saying today, and eat biscuits, a lot of biscuits.

6th Form Costa

On Wednesdays, fortnightly the 6th formers of Edge meet at the Costa coffee on Hills Road, 4.30-5.30pm. This is a time to meet together and discuss God’s word and how it applies to being at college and 6th form. Plus a great time to have a latte and great big slice of cake!

Edge:Friday

On Fridays we have Edge:Friday. This is an open youth club for years 7-11 at the Saint Andrew’s Centre 7-9pm. Edge:Friday is a space for young people to get together and enjoy games, tuck and discussion about issues that impact us today and how the Christian story might connect.

And Finally…

youth-groupThe youth work at St Andrew’s could not happen without the time and effort given by volunteers from within the congregation.

All activities are led by DBS checked adults and we operate a Safeguarding Policy for the protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults in line with the guidelines laid down by the House of Bishops of the Church of England.
