Youth Work – Pathfinders and IN-SYNC
The whole theme of our youth ministry is to make disciples of Jesus Christ, which can only be achieved by the Holy Spirit through the honest and raw engagement of studying the word of God, the Bible.
We do this by making sure our teaching is prayerful, accessible and engaging through study, discussion and activities.
We believe our first command is to make disciples of Christ, the overflow of that is Christians that want to love and serve their families, church and community through the power of Christ.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
Our full-time Youth Pastor is Daniel Booth. You can contact Daniel on 07485 097 654 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about our youth work.
Sunday morning: Pathfinders – Yrs 6-10
The group meets every 2nd & 3rd Sunday. We meet at church with the congregation and then go over to the church centre 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 explore questions about the context and what it means for us today.
Each term 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.
“We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done.” Psalm 78:4
Sunday evening: IN-SYNC – Yrs 6-13
Our youth group meets every 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 explore questions about life and faith. We are currently studying through 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 activities!
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 going to Yorkshire Camps again!
You can find out more about Yorkshire Camps on their website: www.yorkshirecamps.org.uk
Here’s a little video that will give you a flavour of what to expect:
For schools years 7 – 10 (age 12-15), Daniel will be accompanying a group on 16th – 20th August.
The cost is £110.
However we don’t want cost to be a barrier to going along to camp so if you might struggle to afford it then please have a word with Daniel.
We are also planning a trip for school years 3-6 (age 8-11). For more information about that please contact the Church Office (email@example.com)
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.
