CHRIST CHURCH W4 IS A PLACE WHERE YOUNG PEOPLE BELONG, HAVE FUN AND THRIVE

We have made a confirmation course called Confirmed. The course prepares young people for confirmation and long term discipleship by encouraging engagement with Christian spiritual disciplines - the young people collect corresponding badges along the way, which has proved quite fun. It would make a good discipleship series as well as being a good staple for confirmation classes.

CONFIRMED COURSE

You can order your copy of the Capital Youth + Dave Walker cartoon booklet ‘Young People in the Church’ here for free!

SIMPLE IDEAS FOR YOUTH WORK AT ANY STAGE

We have uploaded 4 fully planned youth sessions, top tips, articles and ideas available for you to download and try out in your church setting.

We also recommend checking out Urban Saint’s Energize curriculum. It has tonnes of youth series ideas pre-planned for you, but it also lets you tweak the content and build your own session using their bank of games, activities and bible studies.

Youth For Christ also have a brilliant range of resources, curriculum and content available. Do check it out and see what’s a good fit for you.

THE BEST FREE GIG IN TOWN

perfect for young people aged 11-16.

LIFT happens once a term at St. Alban's Church. There’s amazing music, new friends to make, free hot dogs, indoor football cage, fun inflatable obstacle course, inspiring testimonies and opportunity to respond to the gospel, all in a safe, epic venue!

The next LIFT is: TBC

Youth Minsters are an initiative from the London Diocese to reach more young people and support youth ministry in other churches.

Our aim is that you would feel part of the Youth Minster. We do not exist for ourselves, but for the whole area. A phrase we've found helpful in describing who we are and what we're about is: "We are a collective passionate about youth encountering Jesus, impacting West London, seeing young lives transformed."

If that resonates with you, you are part of the collective! And we will signpost more ways we can feel like we're heading towards that big vision together.

EQUIPPING THE LOCAL CHURCH

Zoe Phillips - our Youth Pastor - is also a Kensington Area Youth Champion, Youth Advocate for the London Diocese, and has a specific focus on Church Liaison as part of the Youth Minster. She is readily available to listen/advise and consult on any youth work matters for you, no matter what church you’re in.

Zoe also co-leads a youth worker support group; Soul Net meets once a month at St. Alban's, in Fulham. If you are a youth worker looking for community, this is the place to come.
