If you're Aged 11-18 we have loads going on for you at Trinity Youth
We believe that God is an exciting, life changing and transforming God, who loves to make a difference in the world through young people. Our youth ministry exists to introduce young people to Jesus, to connect them with other Christians, to challenge them to grow in their faith and to encourage them to worship and serve God. For weekly updates on our activities follow our Facebook page here or our Instagram here.
TheLoft is our Friday night youth club for young people aged 11-14 (school years 7-9). We meet from 7:30pm to 9pm in the Trinity Centre (subs £1) to play games, eat sweets, chill out and generally make a lot of noise, have fun and build friendships!
Those in Year 7-9 meet again on Sunday mornings during the 10.40am service, to engage with and explore the Christian faith through games, activities and discussion. We spend the first twenty minutes in the service and then meet in the youth room on the first floor of the Church Centre.
On Tuesday nights the 15-18 year olds (years 10-13) meet in the Trinity Centre from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. We usually share a simple meal or cake and spend time discussing the big questions of life (we also make room for some crazy games here too!)
During the school holidays we are able to provide more one off events from 6th Former Gatherings to bowling and beach and campfire nights (we love to take advantage of the beauty of the Island whenever weather permits). We also join with other church youth groups on the Island as part of the NewWine Guernsey Youth for one off events and to run courses to develop young leadership potential.
The greatest spiritual influence in a child's life is undoubtedly their parents and we love to work alongside, support and encourage the parents of the young people. Raising Teens can be a difficult prospect so in addition to keeping open lines of communication we love to spend time getting to know parents of the teenagers through parent social nights which happen on a termly basis. These socials aim to provide space for parents to gather together, get to know other parents of teenagers and the youth ministry team and learn from and encourage one another (speak to David for details on the next one). In addition to the termly parent socials we also seek to periodically run Parent Teenager Courses as part of the Faith and Life Programme.
We take seriously our responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people entrusted to our care and have a Safeguarding Officer and Safeguarding Policy that we work to.
We are committed to:
- Providing a safe and comfortable environment where a child’s physical, emotional and spiritual well being is fostered and protected.
- Listen to, relate effectively to and value children and young people.
- Encourage and support parents/guardians.
- Ensure that those working with children and young people are given support and training.
