Youth at Avenue Baptist Church

We hold a Friday night Youth Group at 8.00pm on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month. It is aimed at people of secondary school age (years 7 to 13). The evening will include some socialising and games (normally including some volleyball or foursquare). We will also have a talk or discussion about a Bible passage or topical subject. Bring your difficult questions! We can’t promise to bring an easy answer, but we’d love to have a discussion with you.

Amongst the Youth at Avenue Baptist Church we have people who have a strong faith of their own, others who have none at all, and everything in between. Some have grown up in the church and others have been invited by friends. It doesn’t matter how you get here, all are very welcome!

Now and then there will be a film night or a social. On Fridays without a specific youth event, the youth often join the adults for games evenings or table tennis, also at 8.00pm.

The youth group usually join in with the main service on Sunday mornings at 11am. They also take an active part in leading worship.

Each year the youth group take a number of trips, to concerts, the beach, Big Church Day Out, Greenbelt, Soul Survivor or to Norfolk for a week of sailing.


We have also hosted a Guides troop for many years. If you would be interested in more information please contact them via Andrew Jones (see the contacts page)
