Devotion encompasses our ministry for young people aged 11-18 and is all about creating an expression of church where young people feel inspired and encouraged to grow in faith. Our vision as a community is to become a radically welcoming community of young people, becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus and finding their purpose to become agents of change in their world.
We realise this vision by regularly meeting in the following three ways...
1. Friday Devotion: Is our evening 'Youth Church' event for y8-13s where we meet with a mixture of socialising, gathered time and small group discussion.
2. Sunday Devotion: We also run two groups on a Sunday morning where prayer, discussion and fun are key ingredients. Year 7-9 groups meet at both 9.15 and 11am services, with y10+ meeting at the 11am service.
3. Post-16: Is our midweek group for 16-18 year olds with a strong focus on peer-led discussion, deepening faith and building meaningful relationships. We meet once a fortnightly on a Tuesday at ADH (Ashley Down House).
Alongside our regular gathering points, we also run weekends away, day trips and engage our young people with mission.
