Young People

Partnering with parents and carers to help young people know Jesus and make him known.

That’s the vision for youth work at SSSW! As a team of leaders, we aim to do this by:

  • supporting parents, who are the primary disciple-makers
  • teaching Jesus from the Bible
  • praying for the young people
  • modelling Christian living as we meet together

Pathfinders (Year 6 to Year 9)

Thursday: On Thursday evenings at St Stephen’s, from 6.00-7.30pm, we meet for a fun evening including a short, small group Bible study.

Sunday: We come to the 10am service together. Most weeks we have our own group where we look at the Bible together, but once a month we listen carefully to the Bible being taught in the church All-Age service.

Cross Section (Year 10 to Year 13)

Thursday: We meet at 7:30pm at St Stephen’s, and finish at 8:45pm. We usually have doughnuts, chat and study the Bible together. We also look at topical issues once or twice per half term.

Sunday: Some of us come to the 10am service, others prefer to come at 6pm =)

Other Activities

Weekend Away: We have an annual weekend away in October for both Pathfinders and Cross Section.

Summer Camps: These are a great time when we can go on holiday, meet young people from all over the country, do exciting new activities and learn more about Jesus and what it means to follow him.

We currently go to a summer camps run by CPAS Ventures: Quinta (for 11-14s). Were looking for a senior camp (for 14-18s).
