As a team, we are expectant for our young people to meet Jesus. Our gatherings will include; Worship, Good News stories and Apologetics (a time to ask those all-important questions that young people face on a day to day basis). We will have a different speaker each morning and allow for ministry time where our amazing prayer team will be available for those who need support. Most importantly, we want to create a space for young people to encounter Jesus for themselves and to understand who he is. We can't wait!
