Crofton Parish runs a number of vibrant youth groups for young people. These groups meet in Holy Rood Church Centre unless otherwise stated. Whether you are local or visiting the area we would love for you to join us at any of these meetings.
Our Sunday morning group called Vision meets in the church centre during the 9:30am Family Service for young people in school years 7 to 11. Our aims are to learn more about the Christian faith through fun and friendship
Flame is an after school club for young people in school years 7 to 10. We meet on Fridays from 3:15pm to 5pm. There’s toast and drinks to combat those pesky after-school hunger pangs, followed by a varied programme of fun games with plenty of prizes, discussion groups and lots of outside activities including trips to theme parks, weekends away, Playzone, sleepovers and much more.
Once a month we have a group called FAST – Friday At Seven Thirty. This is for young people in school years 10 to 13. As well as lots of activities such as table tennis, Playstation and pool there are pizzas or other tasty food. We also welcome guest speakers to come and share with us. Please see website for next date. Times are 7.30pm to 9.30pm with £1 subs.
We have small groups are for school years 8 to 13 – there are different groups depending on your age. On a Monday we have Pulse, which meets at the Church Centre and is for those in school years 8 – 11 from 6.30pm to 8pm. On a Tuesday we have a group called EDGE meeting in the Church centre from 7,30pm to 9pm and this is for school age 10 to 13. Both groups have lovely homemade cakes as we look at the Christian message together.
During the year we organise a number of times away, including camping at the Christian youth festival Soul Survivor and Fairthorne Manor residential weekends.
