Meeting Point aims to do what it says on the tin…
This new youth group will be called "Meeting Point" for the simple reason that we want it to be a meeting point: a place to meet new friends in a church-setting as well as a place to meet God for themselves each week.
What do we do each week?
For now we’re meeting on Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:15pm (before the 6:30pm service) for some fun, food, and seeing what God has to say to us at our stage of life: this might be working through a chunk of the bible or tackling some of the tough questions teenagers have and life issues they face. A rough outline of this time together will look something like this:
- Arrival: roughly 30 minutes of fun and food. Most likely this will involve all sorts of games!
- Teaching time: around 20 minutes. The format will vary, depending on the topic: sometimes it’ll be an interactive talk, other times more of a group discussion about a bible passage.
- End: 25 minutes of more chilled games (etc board games, consoles, air hockey).
After this, a number of the young people stay on for the 6:30pm evening service where sit together. As leaders, we do all we can to help the young people get used to this and to help them follow. *If your child is not able to stay on, please do arrange lifts for them at 6:15pm from outside the front of the building.*
