CBC Youth Ministry exists to REACH non-believing young people, to CONNECT them with other Christians, to help them GROW in their faith, & to challenge the growing to DISCOVER their ministry & HONOUR God with their life.

In order to fulfill this purpose we have a wide range of activities & groups designed with young people in mind (aged 12-19). We are always ready to welcome new people, so please come & join us!

The following youth activities occur regularly during term time:

A) Impact – Is a youth club that runs weekly on Sunday evenings, where the young people can come together, hang out, have fun, & deepen friendships. We meet at the church from 7.15 – 8.45pm.

B) Cornerstone – Once a month, instead of Impact, we run an evangelistic youth café in Corsham Springfield Campus (7.15 – 8.45pm). This consists of: live music, video clips, team challenges, refreshments & messages of Hope for Life.  

C) Rooted – This study group runs weekly on Wednesday evenings, and is an opportunity for the young people to meet, eat & check out the Bible’s teaching on different topics relevant to them. We meet at the church from 7.15 – 8.45pm.

D) Special Events – At several points in the year we engage in special events, these include:

i) The Noise, Bristol: Getting involved in social action projects over the early May Bank Holiday Weekend, in partnership with local churches.

ii) Youth Weekend Away: Giving young people the chance to take time out & have fun, through a series of challenges, gatherings & activities, building deeper relationships with one another & with God.

       iii) Summer Camp: Taking young people away on a five-day camp to meet with other young people exploring Christian faith & to encounter God. 

E) Short-Term Mission Trips – We regularly attempt to send young people on mission opportunities. In recent years, this has included supporting refugees in Austria; missionary children in Morocco, Kenya, Tanzania & Uganda; health clinics in Thailand & Uganda; relief & development projects in Bangladesh & Mexico; a building project in Tanzania; Mercy Ships; and Children’s projects in Romania, Peterborough & Somerset.

F) Schools & Colleges Work – In partnership with local schools & as part of a wider inter-denominational team, we are involved in facilitating weekly lunchtime Christianity Explored groups so that pupils are given the opportunity to explore the questions they have about Life & Faith. Corsham & Abbeyfield School – Thursday Lunchtimes. Hardenhuish School – Wednesday Lunchtimes. Sheldon School – Friday Lunchtimes. Lackham College & Chippenham College (both fortnightly) – Wednesdays & Thursday respectively.
