Guildford Youth is back on at church!
GY is our youth group that meets every Friday night during term time, from 7pm to 9pm. It is for high schoolers (and year 6).
We have a great time each week as we come together, play games, eat supper and learn from the Bible. Our aim is to grow up together in Jesus Christ. We have heaps of fun, but the most important thing for us is that we are learning more and more about Jesus.
We learn about what he has done for us on the cross, and how we can live for him. That is why we focus on hearing from the Bible and then think about how the Bible impacts on our lives. Doing this with friends is really important. We can support each other through whatever it is we are going through.
Every year we go away on a camp which is a really important time for our group to bond together and grow in our faith as we hear more about Jesus.
Here’s how we will run things and make sure we have a safe environment for our youth and leaders:
- Youth will be run from 7:00-9:00pm.
- We will spend our time in the hall and outside. These areas will be cleaned after we use them.
- We require youth to check in via QR code or we can record contact details for contact tracing.
- We require youth over 12 and leaders to wear face masks while inside.
- We will maximise our time outside to ensure ventilation.
- We will enforce 1.5m spacing during our teaching and discussion times, and will strongly encourage and model it at other times.
- We will avoid games with physical contact.
- We will ensure proper food-handling and hand hygiene.
- We will discourage hugs, handshakes, high-fives and other physical greetings.
- If you have your own Bible and water bottle – please bring them!
We look forward to seeing you at Guildford Youth. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
