Youth

All Nations Youth is the youth community of All Nations Church, for young people in school years 7 to 13.

Our heart and vision for youth reflects that of the church:

To be a diverse people, growing and going for the glory of God in Bedford and beyond.

All Nations Youth Together

The first midweek youth event in each half-term is a combined North and South youth event. This is an opportunity for youth across the church to come together, build relationships with eachother, and recognise that we are on this journey together.

Normally first Thursday of half-term: 7-9pm. North Site. £2 charge to cover costs. Tuck shop.


All Nations Youth Groups (midweek)

Midweek youth small groups run every week during term time (apart from All Nations Youth Together week). Each group is based on school year and gender. Different groups meet on different evenings. The heart behind small groups is building strong relationships between youth of similar age, and building a strong relationship with God, as they look at the latest theme, and how it impacts their lives.

Sunday Youth

Youth in years 7-10 go out on most Sundays, meeting in the back hall. Sunday youth follows the teaching series of the church. There is a focus on teaching and opportunities to discuss what this means to the youth.


Impact (Friday youth)

Impact is our youth club on Friday evening. This is an opportunity for our youth to invite their friends to a youth event in a church building. This will be every fortnight during term-time, with the first one on Friday January 13th. 

Years 7-9         6:30pm – 8pm
Years 10-13     8:15pm – 9:45pm


Youth Away Events

Newday is an annual event gathering thousands of young people aged 12-19 years old (those currently in school years 7 to 13). The aim of Newday is to envision and equip for God a generation to play their part in the world. The event consists of seminars, worship, teaching, sporting tournaments and milkshakes!

Newday is happening from Monday 31st July 2017 – Sunday 6th August 2017.

Further details on cost and how to book in will appear soon.

Newday Permission Form

 

Youth weekend away happens once a year, and is an opportunity for youth across the church to spend a weekend having lots of fun, eating good food, and focus on God. These are always great times of meeting with God, and growing together as a youth group.

This year we are going to Irthlingborough from Friday 10 March 2017 – Sunday 12 March 2017.

Further details on cost and how to book in will appear soon.


 

We will continue to foster a culture of encouraging our youth to grow in their relationship with God, through the regular activities (as detailed above) and also discipleship; equipping tracks; serving and stepping out, through youth outreach; youth church led by youth, for youth; serving in church on a Sunday.

 

Details of such events and opportunities will become available through the term.
