Youth & Children’s Work
There are many activities for young people that take place at Bourne Baptist Church. Regular weekly activities take place during term time. and we have socials a few times during the year sometimes with the Senior Youth and Young Youth groups such as at our Christmas party.
We support our young people in their faith journey by arranging enrichment events. Last year instead of a weekend away (cancelled due to the Covid 19 situation) we held a special day of activities interspersed with Zoom meetings and the previous year we were at the Soul Survivor week at the Peterborough showground.
If you’re a parent or carer of a teenager then have a look at a couple of resources we’ve found for you. First a series of podcasts from Care for the Family covering topics such as sex and relationships, the digital age, self-esteem and much more and secondly, a booklet on emotional care that may be of interest!
Tuesday Senior Youth
A group for young people aged between 15-18 meeting in the church office (at the rear of the church) 7.30-9:00pm. Term time we enjoy discussion over tea & toast with parlour-type games. We have occasional Costa Coffee Drop-ins straight from school during term time and during exam time we take things a bit easier to allow a break from that revision!. On occasion we have been asked to lead a service or two with a couple of our youth even preparing and giving the sermon.
Thursday Young Youth
A group for young people aged between 11-14 meeting in the back hall between 7.00-8.15pm. Term time we enjoy games, activities and lively discussion, with time for tuck – bring £1. Starting from September, Young Youth will meet on a Thursday instead of Monday
An after school group for primary aged children from Year 1- Year 6 meeting in the back hall 5.30-6.30pm. A fun filled hour of craft, games and story. There is a small entrance fee of £1 per child 50p for siblings to cover cost of craft materials, drinks and biscuits.
Toddle In is our popular adult and baby/toddler group and this runs every Tuesday in term time from 9.30am in our back hall. We have loads of exciting toys and activities that the the toddlers enjoy while the adults have a chance to chat while supervising the fun.
Usually takes place on the 2nd Saturday of each month in our back hall with the occasional excursion, maybe even as far as Bourne Woods!. There are toys and activities for the youngsters and quite often a bacon buttie for those feeling peckish.
