CBC Youth Ministry exists to REACH non-believing young people, to CONNECT them with other Christians, to help them GROW in their faith, and to challenge the growing to DISCOVER their ministry and HONOUR God with their life.
In order to fulfill this purpose we have a wide range of activities and groups designed with young people in mind (aged 12-19). We are always ready to welcome new people week by week, so please come and 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 and ultimately learn about Jesus. We meet at the church from 7.30 – 9pm.
B) Rooted – This study group runs weekly on Wednesday evenings, and is an opportunity for the young people to meet, eat and check out the Bible’s teaching on different topics relevant to them. We start together as one big group, and then split up into smaller age-defined groups. We meet at the church from 7.15 – 9pm.
C) Special Events – At several points in the year we engage in special events, these include:
i) Soul Survivor Summer Festival: A five day event where thousands gather together to journey with God. Each day is packed full with big meetings, cafes, seminars, sports and gigs.
ii) Unleashed: Is our annual weekend away, giving young people the chance to take time out, have fun, and build deeper relationships with one another and with God.
D) Short-Term Mission Trips – Since 2012, this has included supporting refugees living in Austria, missionary children in Morocco, Kenya & Uganda, health clinics in Thailand & Uganda, aid & development projects in Bangladesh & Mexico, a building project in Tanzania, Children’s projects in Romania & Somerset and community action in Bristol.
E) Schools’ Work – In partnership with The Corsham School, CBC helps facilitate a weekly Christian Union group so that pupils are given the opportunity to explore the questions they have about life & faith. This runs on Thursday lunchtimes.
Dan Ovens is our full time youth pastor and he is helped by an excellent team of volunteers. He would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the youth at CBC.
