Youth Party2

Central Youth Programme

Youth are an important part of our New Community Central congregation, and we aim to encourage our youth to grow in their relationship with God.

We have a specific programme on Sunday mornings for youth in school years 6-11, a dynamic midweek youth group for those in year 6+, and also a midweek connect group for our older youth in year 9+.

Our youth ministry is run by an experienced team of volunteers who have been safely recruited to work with children and young people. Find out about our safeguarding policy.

You can find out more about our different youth activities and groups below.

Older Youth Connect Group

Our Wednesday night connect group is specifically for our older youth, and provides an opportunity for them to hang out with friends, pray and explore their faith in a relaxed setting. It's for youth in school years 9+, and the group usually meets in someone's home.

Please contact nextgen@newcommunity.org.uk for more information about this group.

Youth Socials

The older youth from across New Community Church get together every other month for socials. We run Band of Brothers (for boys) and Soul Sisters (for girls), and organise a range of fun activities, helping our young people to get to know each other better, building strong friendships.

Who it's for: Youth in school years 9-13.
When: Every other month. Check our calendar for dates.
Where: Various venues.
Run by: Calvin Smith
For more information: Please email central@newcommunity.org.uk.

9+

Our older youth stay in the main meeting for all of the worship and then come out to the coffee shop after the notices, for a short talk and discussion time. On the second Sunday of each month, our older youth serve on team, so there is no group in the coffee shop on those Sundays.

Who it's for: Youth in school years 9+.
When: Sunday morning (except on the second Sunday of each month and during August).
Where: Central Coffee, Central Hall, St. Mary Street, Southampton, SO14 1NF.
