We want to see young people grow present and accountable relationships with each other, with their peers and the adults around them, accepting all young people for who they are and how they act. We believe that God has a plan for every young person and pray for them to discover that plan. Andy heads up our Youth Ministry with the direct support of Chris our Student Youth Worker and an amazing team of volunteers!

Each week our vision is worked out in three different ways as we continue to develop and grow our mission to young people and the team that serves them each week:

Youth Roots is a place for young people to develop and grow in their faith, leadership skills, gifts, and abilities while being rooted in God's Word, living out their faith in Jesus wholeheartedly, supported by mentors, prayer and leaders to discover what God can do in and through them. It takes place in Room 3 during the morning services at 9.00am and 11.00 am every Sunday during term time. It's for young people in secondary school. 
As young people mature in their faith they are encouraged to find a place to serve within the wider church family, often on a Sunday Morning in children's groups, reading, the welcome team, the audio-visual team and many other areas.
CTK Youth Friday [Black]

Friday night groups are high impact, fun, and energetic with games, activities and trips that help young people develop stronger relationships and to build trust, understanding and respect of others. 

We meet weekly during term time from 7.15pm to 8.45pm for secondary school aged young people.

Discipling young people at CtK has three parts that serve young people in different ways and aims to meet them where they are:

After Hours: A group for young people to explore faith, the issues and the challenges that they face.  It happens after our Friday night group from 8.45pm to 9.45pm, weekly during term time.

Four Twelve (4.12): 
Meets fortnightly on a Sunday night from 7.30pm to 9.00pm to study the Bible, worship and pray together. Through that we are encouraging young people to not let anyone look down on them, but to set an example to others in speech, in conduct, in love, and in Faith (1 Timothy 4.12).  

Huddles: These are groups of 2 or 3 young people that meet with a mentor weekly/fortnightly. They meet at various points throughout the week, during Friday groups or in a local café. A Huddle is a place for young people to be challenged, ask tough questions and cheer each other on as they seek to live out Jesus-shaped lives.
