Whatever your age, your outlook, your background or your beliefs, we hope that there is something for you at Holy Trinity Nailsea. Here we have a dedicated youth team of amazing volunteers and staff, so why not have a read and find out a bit about us, what makes us tick and what we are up to that you could be involved in:
Who Are We?
Jon is supported by a team of volunteers that help guide and drive the direction of our groups, and care about the individuals in them. Everyone involved has signed up to the Churches Child Protection Policy and been DBS checked.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)
We want to create youth work that nurtures young people in Christian discipleship through worship, fellowship, study and mission. We strive to be an engaging and welcoming community for young people that:
- Surrounds – young people with an unconditional love that fosters genuine relationships
- Anchors – them in the joys and traditions of the Christian faith
- Energizes – and equips them to extend the love of Christ to the world
We have a number of different groups that meet regularly and focus on a variety of things – sometimes discipleship, worship, or teaching, or a space where young people can come and hang out in a place to call their own. At the core of all these groups lies an emphasis on relationship building and genuine acceptance. Whether it’s a place to have some fun or to explore the Christian faith we hope to have somewhere that you may feel comfortable in trying out.
Sunday Mornings – 10.45am 12.00pm.
Part of our Sunday Morning family service, specifically designed and delivered for the young people. As a group we spent our time hanging out as friends, diving deeper into the Bible and eating lots of biscuits. If you love church, love Jesus, love the Bible, or just love eating biscuits and hanging out then come along and join us at Pathfinders.
Tuesday Evenings – 7:45pm –9:45pm.
Looking to dive deeper into the Bible and Christianity than ever before? CYFA is the place for you. Our senior discipleship group meets every Tuesday evening full of food, bibles and fun. Our aim is to inspire young people to have a passion for God and really learn the message of the Bible and understand God’s unending love for us all.
Thursday Evenings – 7.00pm – 8.30pm.
Rock Solid is all about fun. We play loads of crazy and fun games and make it a place for your to relax and hang out with your friends. The aim of this group is for it to be a safe place for you to feel comfortable to bring your friends to and enjoy an evening of fun, food and even more fun.
