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 usually an All Age service.
On the 2nd and 4th Sundays we use a variety of active and reflective activities, that use games, discussion and drama to learn more about what it means to be a Christian today and in the future, addressing 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.
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.
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.
Details of groups may change throughout the year. To keep up to date, or for any other information concerning provision for young people at St Andrew’s, please contact St Andrew’s Children and Youth Team Leader Tim Blake, tel: 07905 321901 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
