As a church we know that children and young people are not just the church of tomorrow, they are the driving force behind everything we do today. We aim to provide the best care and teaching for our younger members. All our children and youth workers are police checked, DBS cleared and have received child protection training so you can be confident in the knowledge that your children are safe and well cared for.
We have an amazing team of detached youth workers that meet in Wesham Park every Friday Night at 7:30pm. We believe in young people and we believe that young people have potential beyond what they think they have. Our aim is to engage and build genuine relationships with 11-18yr olds in our community, to encourage and challenge them in their lives and to guide them in the right direction to help them become everything they were meant to be.
Youth Grow Groups
Life is supposed to be done with others and with friends. Our Youth grow Groups are designed to offer support and a positive, encouraging community to young people. We run 3 groups every 2 weeks for High school Mixed, College+ Boys and College+ Girls. Although we believe in the Bible and all its teachings it can be difficult to understand. Grow Group helps to break these down in a relevant way and teach and spur young people on to learn and grow in their faith.
LIGHT Church meets every Sunday at 11am in Wesham Community Centre. We gather together for corporate worship and then those aged 11-14 head out for a time of community, teaching, games and breakfast with some of our detached youth workers and other leaders who have 10+ year experience with young people.
Worship is a big part of LIGHT Church and we believe that young people can play a massive part in this, so we run a monthly worship night for the entire church. This is an amazing opportunity for young people to get involved in the music team and to better their skills as musicians or receive training as audio/visual technicians.
We have an amazing kids team that are passionate about kids and devote a lot of time and energy making EPIC as good as it can be. EPIC runs every Sunday morning in Wesham Community Centre and is based around age appropriate teaching, games and crafts designed to bring out childeren’s individual personalities and passions.
We provide a Creche throughout the Sunday morning service. Our team love looking after babies and young children and have a variety of toys and games for them to play with. They also provide a short story or teaching and craft that provides a basic understanding of the bible to our youngest members of the church. Baby changing facilities are also available.
