This week Steve and I have been into Manor High School, sharing the message of Pentecost with over 900 young people. A reminder that we celebrate God’s love and invitation for everyone, the invitation is universal, the response is personal but even the most surprising “outsiders” aren’t outside God’s love. We shared this story to show God in action in this truth. *click the picture to see the video.
It was well received by the staff and students and we hope and pray that they will have taken something away with them this week. 🙂
We are just starting a mentoring programme with our young people, providing them with mentor from church who they can talk life and faith with, who they can ask questions of and share experiences, who can be faithfully praying for them in the ups and downs of life.
If this is something as a young person, you think you’d be interested in, then do let me know. 🙂
The current plan is to pair people up with a mentor for 6 months, meeting approx every 6 weeks in a cafe or coffee shops with expenses covered by church. If both sides want to continue after that time, that can be discussed but we felt having a set amount of time may be helpful for some. There is no expectation in this, it is purely for the reasons stated above, life and faith can be tough at times and it really helps to have someone walking alongside us, praying for us and cheering us on!
This Sunday, all welcome. We’ve had some cracking questions in these so far from “how do we know what to believe?” “Can the devil be forgiven?” “Why is there free will?” “Why didn’t Jesus come sooner?” “Why do bad things happen?” “What happens after we die?”
No question is stupid and no question is off limits. We’d love to see you there wherever you’re at in your life and faith 🙂
We eat lots and discuss questions together and you can share/talk as much or as little as you want, but they are great evenings, I always come Away feeling like I’ve learned so much and been encouraged.
So come along, bring your friends, you’ll be more than welcome
Preparations are underway and letters are going out for our annual Youth Weekend away!
A weekend of connecting with God, having space and quality time with each other, with sports, creative activities, camp fire, music, games, food and much more!
If you’d like to get a flavour of last year’s, here is the video. I suspect we may have a much bigger number this year, so get your forms in quick!
It is a well loved and exciting weekend where young people leave feeling loved by God and us, refreshed and inspired to make a difference in the world.

This week we’re in our local High School sharing the message of hope and friendship of easter with just under 1,000 teenagers. Jesus gives everything so that we can be known and loved forever by a perfect friend. Here’s one of the videos we shared:

Tonight we met for our first group 🙂 Thank you to those who came, this was the name that was chosen for the group, “Nourish” as we eat, encourage, inspire and grow together in life and faith. Next month is a Q+A and food so you can bring any question and we’ll discuss it all together as we learn from each other. Feel free to invite friends or to come for the first time, all are welcome, you don’t have to have a certain view, we;d love to see you there. 🙂
We had an awesome time this afternoon with some of our Holiday Club pals with songs, crafts, games, films, stories, food and party bags! Thank you so much to everyone who made it happen and who came and made it such a fun and lovely afternoon.
We wish you every blessing this Christmas – you are warmly invited to join us Christmas Eve, 4pm for our Christingle service for all the family, but if we don’t see you, have a peaceful and joy-filled Christmas and New Year!
Love from all at St Paul’s Church x
Great way to finish the term with a Christmassy film night at FNY with crisps, popcorn and elf 🙂
