Youth Groups

On Friday evenings we have two clubs for young people in secondary school, and we’d love you to see you there! Transformed is for school years 7-9, and T2 is for school years 10-13.

Transformed Youth Group

Transformed is about bringing young people together who want to be transformed by God.
For those who are already Christians, it’s about how you live the transformed life God wants you to live. For those who aren’t Christians, it’s about understanding why it’s so great to be transformed by God. Transformed meets on Friday evenings during term time.

We’ll look at what God has to say about himself, about the world and about you by looking through God’s Word, the Bible, and discussing it in a relaxed, informal way. We’ll spend time socially, getting to know each other better through lots of exciting activities and hopefully see what it means to live out a Christian life outside of a Bible study.

Why bother?

We believe that you can only know real, true and full life through knowing Jesus. We believe that Jesus paved the way for us to receive eternal life through his death and resurrection. This sacrifice was one of such amazing love that, whilst we can’t fully understand it, it makes us right with God. He offers this to us as a gift. So, we want to live our lives to the full in Jesus and want to help you to do so as well!

Who is it for?

Transformed is for anyone in school years 7 - 9. The talks, discussions and activities will all be aimed at this age group. We hope to adapt the style of the group to suit those who come.

Young people in years 7-9 are also invited to the Engage Group which meets during the Sunday morning service. We hope that Transformed will act as a stepping stone for many young people to look further into Christianity. Our aim is that Transformed is a group to which you feel you can bring friends, but also that it is for you as well. We want as many people as possible to hear about Jesus and Transformed is one of the ways we can do this, and help you to do this!

What happens on a typical Friday night?

We start at 7:45pm, normally meeting at Widcombe Baptist Church (WBC). We’ll start with a time for catching up, then get everyone involved in some games or other activities such as a bake off, a car treasure hunt or a big art project. We have some snacks together and listen to a short talk about God, with some time for discussion, and then usually we have time for some more games. The evening finishes at 9.45pm.

We also have extra events through the year, such as bowling, trampolining, a sleepover in the church building, and Transformed camp in the summer.

Come along and find out more!

T2

T2 Youth Group logo

T2 is a fun and relaxed group for young people in school years 10-13. Its organised and run by Christians from Widcombe Baptist Church (WBC), with the aim of providing a relaxed and safe place where the young people can have fun, enjoy friendships, and hear what Christians believe.

We start at 7:45pm, normally meeting at WBC. We will start with a chilled time of catching up with drinks and snacks, followed by an organised game or activity such as a bake off, a car treasure hunt or wide games; then we’ll listen to a short talk considering life's deeper issues and about what the bible says, with an opportunity to discuss what we’ve heard afterwards. The evening will finish at 9:45pm unless we’ve told you otherwise in advance.

We will occasionally have special events that might be held elsewhere, where we will do even more exciting and enjoyable things, but will inform you of these in advance.

It's a place to hang out with friends and meet new ones. We are always happy to see new faces so hope that you feel comfortable to invite other friends along too.

Absolutely anyone can come along (within the age range) - whatever your thoughts or beliefs about God. We hope that you feel comfortable to ask any questions and grow in awareness and understanding of the beliefs of others, and what it means to follow Jesus.

We can’t wait to see you at T2 this year!
