Youth Zone is the youth congregation of St Giles, Northampton and we share in the overall vision of the church, ‘To love God and show his love to others.
‘1st SUNDAY Celebration’– on 1st Sunday each month, we join with the evening congregation for a larger worship event and café. An important opportunity for us to be a part of the wider church and to form relationships across generations.
‘CAFE’– Food, Fun & Friendship, multi-activity evening with discussion on topical issues.
£1 - admission. Bring a friend!
‘HOME’– A gathering for all involved in the youth ministry at St Giles; a time for worship, learning and reflection using a variety of activities.
‘CELLS’:Small groups that meet during the week; allowing for friendships to develop and issues to be explored in a safe space.
‘MENTORING’– We offer young people a chance to develop a relationship with an older member of St Giles as a way of deepening discipleship and finding general help and support.
‘CAMPS & WEEKENDS AWAY’ - Times away together are vital in building community and friendships. We organise a weekend away together once a year with all young people aged 11-18yrs and in the summer we take a group to Soul Survivor festival. We arrange other ‘sleepovers’ and times away with smaller groups from time to time.
‘VOLUNTEERING’ – We encourage members to serve others in voluntary work within the church community or elsewhere. We organise an annual group social action weekend for everyone involved in the youth work. We support young people to work overseas during their gap year.
‘SOCIALS + PARTIES’- Regular events just for fun! Either in cell groups or larger groups; we hold one large event each year to bring together everyone involved in all the groups.
