Grace Youth is a vibrant group full of young people aged 11-18 who regularly meet together to have fun, build community, and learn about God. The group is lead by volunteers Zach and Rosie along side a team of youth leaders who are all passionate about raising up a generation of young people who love and honour God.
Grace Youth meet 1 in 3 Sunday morning at the Salisbury site during the main preach. In this session we have a game, hear from the bible, discuss and pray together.
On the 2nd Sunday of the month Grace Youth meet in two same sex groups (boys/girls) in leader’s homes across the city between 7pm and 8:30pm during term time. This time is focused on building community among one another where they enjoy drinks and cake, play games and share life together through bible study, discussion and prayer.
On the 4th Sunday of the month Grace Youth meet altogether at 7pm-8:30pm during term time. The format of the meetings vary but usually include a time of team building games, fun and messy games, activities, talks, discussion groups and prayer.
Socials are planned 1-2 times a term and vary widely between pizza and games night, movies, outdoor activities, beach trips and day trips. The focus of these events is to have fun together and build community amongst the young people.
Grace Church runs a mentoring scheme which is available for all young people where by the young person(s) meet regularly with a mentor for a period of time for a certain purpose which is orientated around the needs and goals of the mentee(s). Mentoring is built on relationship which is friendly and relaxed but remains formal and done within the guidelines set out by Grace Church. All Mentors have a valid DBS, follow safe practice and safeguarding guidelines and are regularly supervised by mentoring supervisor Jon.
Grace Youth are a vital part of the church family and are actively involved in helping on a Sunday morning through serving in various teams across the church.
We aim to raise up a generation whose lives honour God.
