Youth Work – Pathfinder and IN-SYNC
The whole theme of our youth ministry is to work on our G.P.S. which stands for Gifts, Passion and Service.
We want to empower our young people to recognise and utilise their gifts and passion to serve them in their personal life, the Church family and the wider community.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen”
1 Peter 4: 10-11

Sunday morning: Pathfinders
The group meets twice a month on a Sunday morning, for Yrs 6 – 9. We meet over in the Church Centre. Leaving church at 10:40am.
This is the best time to get stuck into our Bible teaching and we are currently going through 1 Peter. We have more time in this group to work through the text and ask questions about the context and what it means for us today.
For each session we have a different member of the congregation come and share their most inspiring verses of scripture, what it means to them and the effect that it has had on their life. At Deane we are keen to encourage an inter-generational congregation, where we encourage each other, share our wisdom and experience, and use the gifts that we all have to offer.

Sunday evening: IN-SYNC
Our youth group meets on a Sunday evening from 7:00 – 8:30pm in Deane Church Centre. The group is for Yrs 6 – 13.
It’s a quality time for fellowship, discussions and Bible teaching with great opportunities to ask questions about life and faith. We are currently looking at key verses in the book John.
We make our own food from Pancakes to Pizzas! In between all that we still find plenty of time for games and crafts!
Friday evening: Youth night
We have a group for 14 – 18 yr olds on a Friday evening, meeting at 234 Wigan Road. We have a meal together and then dig into God’s Word, thinking about what it says and how it applies to our lives.
This group is led by Terry and Beccy Clark. For more information about this group contact them on 01204 659637 or email@example.com.
We are keen for our young people to get involved in summer camps. They provide a great opportunity to meet others of the same age who are wanting to learn more about God, to make new friends and to have the input of other Christian adults in their lives.
This summer we are heading to Yorkshire Camps
We would like to invite our young people from Deane Church & Lostock Church as well as the wider community (age 7-13, school years 5-8) for an adventure of a life time to Yorkshire Camps at Threshfield, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (A.O.N.B.) in the Yorkshire Dales. The camp runs from 20th – 23rd August 2019.
Daniel Booth and Ben Wilkinson (our Curate) will be with them for the full duration of the excursion.
The aim is to have some quality time together through fun activities and interactive Bible teaching. We want to build our relationship with God and with each other.
Food, accommodation and activities are all included in the price of £82.50.
For more information about the trip please contact Daniel.
All of our children and young peoples’ group leaders are DBS checked and are expected to work in line with the Safeguarding Policies and Procedures of Manchester Diocese. More details of our commitment to safeguarding can be found here.
