CTR Youth Ministry is devoted to creating an environment where young people feel inspired and encouraged to grow in their faith. Our vision as a ministry is to become a totally welcoming, warm community of young people, who are becoming more like Jesus, connecting with their community and seeing lives transformed by the power of Jesus.
We realise this vision by regularly meeting in the following ways:
On the first and third Wednesday of the month we meet together in The Candle Prayer Room at 7.00 – 8.30pm to learn more about our amazing God, the bible and how it is relevant to our lives today. These sessions are designed to inspire and motivate young people to learn more about their relationship with God as well as providing the opportunity for tangible experiences with Jesus. The sessions are delivered by Martyn and Deborah who are so passionate about Jesus and their enthusiasm is contagious! Our vision is to see our youth growing in the gifts God has given them and having opportunities to do so and youth church is where it all begins!
On the second and fourth (and sometimes 5th) Wednesday of the month we meet together at The Candle (unless otherwise specified) at 7.00 – 8.30pm to spend time together as friends and have fun! We have termly schedules including movie nights, pizza making, quiz nights, bonfires, laser quest, air hop, NERF gun wars etc! These sessions are such a wonderful way of spending time with other young people who believe in Jesus and provide so many opportunities to strengthen relationships, work as a team and just have some fun!
On the 2nd Saturday of the month we have our SHINE event. This is a free youth event for the community and an opportunity for CTR Youth to bring friends and introduce them to our youth work. SHINE is held at ST NICKS Family Centre in Abbottswood at 6.00pm – 8.00pm. Activities available such as Football, Hockey, Basketball, Nail and Hair bar, Selfie Station, Art and Crafts, Food crafts, TUCK shop and various other things such as roller discos, talent shows and sports tournaments! It is a vibrant event with so much on offer and a fantastic way of getting to know our youth team!
