Youth holidays


Every year, thousands of young people go on venture camps. There are camps for 11-14 year olds and 14-18 year olds. Rob and Margaret Bianchi help run one of the dozens of camps that take place around the country at Blaithwaite in the Lake District.


The camps consist of outdoor activities, fun events, games, music and time to stop and think about faith in life.


Check out the Ventures site for details of CYFA ventures nationally.


There are now camps for ages 8-12 - details here


Youth group 


Our youth group has started up again and runs on Thursdays at 4pm at the vicarage.


It is for young people aged 11-18.


The group is a safe place for young people to talk about issues they face, build friendships, have some fun, occasionally watch films, share food and think more about who Jesus is, who God is and what he wants of us. Contact us for further details.


Youth Model Making Group


Starting back soon. Bring your own model, be it airfix or warhammer or something else, or make a free Warhammer figure. Paints and figures provided.



There are also other ad hoc events that will be organised at a time that suits the most people.


Sometimes the focus is an activity, in the past the group has tried out archery, been to Quasar and planned and performed a drama and there is often pizza or something else to eat. There is always the chance to ask the leaders about spiritual things at these times too.


Lads and Dads


'Lads and Dads' is aimed at getting young lads (aged 9+) out and having fun and developing as young men through outdoor activities.


The idea is that lads come with their dads to build relationships, but there are also some of the men who are willing to act 'in loc parentis' where necessary so that no one is excluded.

Contact the church office  (415 4200) to bfind out more. There is a charge for each event to cover costs, but subsidies are available
