Embers (Youth group)
We're excited to be running two groups for young people this term, so there's something for everyone from Year 5-11
Embers is open to young people from years 5 to 11. We meet on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm - 9pm. We're a crazy, lively bunch who have a tremendous amount of fun together. If you know anyone who might be interested in attending or you have any questions, please feel free to contact Gary. Here's what we're up to this term!
Embers has been running in the Church Hall in Stoke Holy Cross every week since November last year. With 36 young people now on the register, it has been an incredibly exciting time! The programme is hugely varied, with activities such as Crazy Quizzes, Nerf Battles, Chocolate Parties and Film Nights, to name a few. Every other week we have a Club Night where the youth can chill and play pool, table tennis, air hockey and other tabletop games. Once a month, the Youth for Christ’s mobile recording studio TRACKS makes a visit, giving a great opportunity to lay down some beats or record some smooth vocals.
Now and again we also like to tackle big issues that our Young People are dealing with. This is done from the perspective of the Christian Faith which, we believe, has many answers to the big questions our young people are asking.
"Embers 2" is a new event happening weekly on Sunday evenings, for young people aged 12 - 16.
We are inviting our young people to watch The Chosen with us, one episode at a time and discuss it afterwards.
Sunday evenings starting from 25th September, 6-8pm at the Church Hall. Yummy desserts, brilliant videos, lots to talk about.
at 6pm at the Church Hall. We start with a yummy desert provided free by the members of the church and then watch an episode (usually lasting about 50 minutes, although some are a bit shorter) then we have a chat about what people thought. We're all finished by 8pm.
