Trent Youth is about equipping young people to live in the reality of the Kingdom of God.
We are passionate about seeing young people worshipping God with their lives and showing love and compassion towards others. We believe that the best way to do all this is through genuine relationships, so we spend lots of time hanging out and having fun.
Right now, we are in an exciting chapter, having recently moved to the brand new Trent Youth Centre. This boasts a sports hall, cafe, climbing wall, dance studio and loads of other cool facilities and equipment. Our new home is allowing us to transform the scale and quality of youth work that we can offer to our church and our city.
Trent Youth AM (Year 7-9) 10.30am at Trent Youth Centre.
Trent Youth AM is a mixture of games, worship, ministry, hanging out and spending time with God. Each week we focus on building positive relationships, looking at the Bible and discussing what Jesus has to say about the way we live our lives. Older youth are welcome in the mornings too, but the event is mainly for those in school years 7-9.
Youth Service (Years 10 – 13) 7pm at Trent Youth Centre
Youth Service is a place where older youth can gather, worship God, learn about Him and pray for one another. Moving into the Youth Centre has transformed Youth Service as we are able to meet in an environment that has been designed for young people with a full band, great PA, relaxing cafe and comfy beanbags (!) There is plenty of time in the evening for hanging out, building relationships and eating cheese toasties!
On Tuesdays during school terms Trent Youth is open for a mixture of small groups, mentoring groups, activities and workshops. Doors open at 7pm, activities go on until 9pm and youth are collected between 9 and 9.30pm.
The cafe is open and there is a chance to chill out or get stuck into an activity of your choice. During the evening there are also a variety of small group sessions for 15 – 18’s and mentoring group sessions for 11 – 14’s. These groups provide a mid-week chance to build deeper relationships, take time out and focus on discipleship.
The sports area offers activities such as football, basketball and uni-hoc, whilst the workshops change on a weekly basis and might include climbing on our indoor wall, art, dance, building, baking, craft, music and film.
Each year we have an amazing time at residential trips like, ‘The Trent Youth Weekend Away', 'Dreaming the Impossible' and 'Soul Survivor'. They are always great opportunities to have fun meeting with God, building friendships and pushing the curfew boundaries!
There are lots of other things going on throughout the year. Contact us at the church office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the latest programme.
