We have groups for young people between the ages of 11 and 18 that run during term time, and groups for 18-22 year olds which run throughout the year.
Watchers is a group for 11-14 year olds (years 7-9) which meets on a Sunday morning in the Trull Church Community Centre. We begin our time as part of the 9.30am church service and then go to our group for games, bible study and prayer.
Drop Zone is an after school club that runs every Tuesday afternoon in term time from 4-5pm in the Trull Church Community Centre.
It is for all those in year 7 and above and is a relaxed space for young people to enjoy table tennis, games, craft, food, and a movie moment that helps us think about an aspect of the Christian faith.
Our youth worker, Ruth Slade, works with Anthony Stevens from Taunton Youth For Christ as a chaplain in Castle School. You can find them both around school during Wednesday lunchtimes.
On Tuesday lunchtimes we run Christian Union in Castle School with Taunton Youth For Christ.
On Wednesdays we offer breakfast to those in year 7 who are settling in to secondary school in QDOS dance studio from 8:15am.
Pulse is a church youth group for 14-18 year olds (years 10-13) who meet every Friday evening in term time from 7.45-9.30pm in the Trull Church Community Centre for food, games, bible study, prayer and worship.
There are two Digging Deeper bible study groups for boys and girls from year 9 upwards which meet in the Trull Church Community Centre.
The girls group meets every Monday 6-7pm upstairs in the meeting room.
The boys group is currently on a break… watch this space for updates!
This summer there are a number of opportunities for young people.
This year we are taking a group of 11-14s to Penrhos Ventures camp. The venue this year is Rydal Penrhos School, Colwyn Bay. Fran and Ruth will be organising the group- please see them for more information and booking forms. https://www.ventures.org.uk/venture-holidays/details/2953
We will be partnering with Taunton Youth For Christ, and Wellington Baptist Church, to take a group to Soul Survivor this summer. If you are going into year 9+ in September, then you are welcome to join us on this trip! We will be going to Week B at the East of England Showground in Peterborough for the 18th-22nd August.
If you are aged 16 or over this summer, and are looking for an opportunity to serve, there is a variety of children’s camps and holiday clubs you can come and get involved with:
The Edge Camp: this camp is run by a national organisation which holds its summer family camp on Taunton Racecourse. Ruth will be taking a group of young people (age 16+) to work with 5-8 year olds leading worship, games, activities and learning from the Bible. Speak to Ruth for more info.
Somerset Christian Camps is being held at Perrott Hill School in Crewkerne over 2 weeks: 12th-17th August and 19th-24th August. If you would like to be a tent leader, speak to Ruth or visit their website for more info. http://www.somersetcamps.org.uk/index.php/home/leaders
When our students are home most of them attend the 5.30pm service in the Trull Church Community Centre.
We also have a bible study group and regular socials for students that meet bi-weekly on a Wednesday evening in term time and each week during student holidays.
