Our vision for the youth work is to grow present and accountable relationships with each other, both young people and adults, accepting of all young people for who they are and how they act (Eph 4:2). Believe that God has a plan for every young person and pray for them to discover that plan (Jer. 29:11). As a team, growing in and truly living with the fruit of the spirit, and sharing that with each other (Gal 5:22). For faith in Christ, each member of the team and each young person to be tangibly expressed in all we seek to do with young people. Our activities and groups look to create space to do three things Encounter God’s love, Engage with the truth of the gospel and Empower young people through effective discipleship.
