YOUTH GROUPS

SORRY  –  OUR YOUTH GROUPS ARE SUSPENDED FOR THE MOMENT BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS.

The Lent material above looks at some key points in Jesus life, starting with his baptism. It is designed to be used by children, young people and their families each week during Lent. The resources can be accessed directly online, by clicking on the weekly links below. In addition, for each week there is a downloadable sheet which can be shared if that is more helpful

Hello

We have been thinking about, and praying for, our Busy Bees, Groovers and Shakers and Trendy Teens children and young people. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have had to cancel our Youth Groups.

We are looking forward to when we can start our groups again and will let you know as soon as possible when we will be starting them.

We wish you and your families and friends a happy, safe and peaceful Easter season

Judith, Shawn, Diane, Vanessa, and Anne.
