Sunday during the 10.15 am service
PUSH and PUSH+ leave the service after worship in Church. They head over to the Oaks, which is the little bungalow just behind the Church Hall, next to the paddock. (It also houses the youth office during the week) Here they break into their groups and have ice breaker style games, teaching and discussions as well as time for prayer. Once a month both PUSH and PUSH+ stay together.
Sunday Afternoon with PUSH+ 4.30 pm - 6.00 pm
Come and join us on a Sunday afternoon to relax at the end of your weekend, play some games and chat with us over home made cake and hot chocolate. As well as our regular Sundays, we have days out throughout the year, such as a trip to the beach, theme parks, etc, and weekends away too.
Tuesday Cell Group 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm for PUSH+
Cell is a chance for our teenagers to ask the big questions about God and their faith, to discuss issues that are important to them and to see what God has to say about them through the Bible and prayer. Our time includes icebreaker games, discussions, video clips where appropriate, worship and prayer.
Friday Club Night 6.30 pm - 8.00 pm
Club Night is for our church teenagers and their friends to come and relax and have fun together after a hard week at school. Regular activities include table tennis, pool & snooker, Wii and Xbox. In a separate room, we have sofas where they can sit and watch a DVD or play games at the tables. Refreshments are served throughout the evening, and we finish most club nights over in the hall with a big team game.
From time to time we have extra activities such as trips to the beach, Ten Pin Bowling and ice skating.
Saturdays 9.00 am - 10.30 am @ Tugmutton Common, Locks Bottom
This is open to boys and girls aged 10 and over. Our team of FA trained coaches and their support staff are ably led by Jeanette, our Football Administrator, and are ready to welcome whoever wants to play every Saturday morning. As well as weekly training, they usually finish with a game and play in a few tournaments each year too.
The academy started in October 2009 and is run by FA qualified coaches in conjunction with Kick London.
For more information call the Parish Office on 01689 850697 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
During the year we have the opportunity to take our groups away for a weekend of activities along with some Bible-based teaching, the amount and content of which depends on the teenagers we are taking. In the last year, PUSH had the opportunity to go to the Frontier Centre in Northamptonshire where activities included fencing and raft building. PUSH+ had a weekend in the Ashdown Forest at West Watch, and the chance to join us for the Soul Survivor camp at Peterborough in the Summer.
