Surge – Youth at St Mary’s

Surge is a group where young people can learn and grow and build relationships with each other and Christ, whilst having fun.  We meet every second and third Sunday of every month for focused activities, attend All-age services and help lead the Explore services.

Sharing Stories: How do we get to know each other and our church family, Looking at how we can build community with each other, connect with each other’s stories and hobbies, through our Emmanuel sessions, where we share what we love and teach each other in the process.

Sharing in God’s word: Looking at how Gods word is relevant to our lives, through engaging thought provoking bible sessions.

Sharing Love: How do we show Gods love and compassion to our community and world? Looking at how we can do this in a practical way, Serving our church and community, through Explore services, cleaning and many more ways.

Sharing Inclusion: What does Jesus say about inclusion, how do we live inclusive lives, both in and outside of church.

Sharing Fun: Enjoying time together, through walks, film nights, trips to outdoor activity centres and many more.

Bible Session is where we delve deeper into God’s Word.  These sessions are often creative in presentation and help young people to connect with the Bible in an engaging way.  We encourage the young people to grow in their relationship with God as we connect with his love letter to us, to grow in knowledge and understanding of the Bible.

We also have regular social events including DVD nights, trips to an outdoor centre or coffee shop and walks.

We also partner with Wendover Youth Centre in the work we do.  Many of our young people attend sessions and are also young leaders at our Amazing Donkey session.
