Youth Ministry at St James is divided into two focus areas, Current and Upstream.
Current is our informal Friday night gatherings. We enjoy being young, playing plenty of games and touching base on relevant Biblical content. It also serves as our “safe space” to invite a friend too. The leaders are focused on encouraging young Christians to live out their faith unashamedly and in every area of their lives.
Anchored in the gospel our main goal is not to see teens entertained but changed.
Upstream is our formal teaching opportunity. We meet on Sundays during the 9:30 service and study the entire bible over a three year period. We encourage every grade 8-10 to attend this diligently, so as to lay the foundations on which their faith can mature.
