Our youth work falls under the banner ‘Impact’ – a name chosen by the young people reflecting the IMPACT that God makes in our lives.
We have a large team of leaders and helpers to offer our children and young people a range of opportunities to know Jesus Christ and to grow as his disciples.
Our children’s and youth workers undertake a careful selection and appointment process and are trained and DBS checked. We want parents to be completely confident that their children are safe whilst they are in our care.
Impact 1 & 2
Impact 1 is for young people between the ages of 10 and 13 (school years 6 to 8) and Impact 2 is for teenagers aged between 13 and 18 (years 9+).
We meet on Sunday mornings for Bible-based teaching, discussion about the Christian faith and to learn more about Jesus.
Zone is our youth club which takes place every Friday night during school term time.
There are two sessions each evening running from 7–8.30pm for young people in school years 7 and 8 (11 to 13 years old) and 8.30–10pm for teens in years 9 and above.
There are loads of sports available including table tennis, pool, basketball and football together with games consoles and rooms for just ‘hanging out’. There is also a tuck shop available each week.
Come along to try it out!
BSBC works in partnership with the Stort Valley Schools Trust to reach out to and support young people in local secondary schools. All the groups give pupils the opportunity to explore the Christian faith through games, discussions and team building activities.
For more information please contact the Church Office.
We periodically run the Alpha course but geared specifically to young people.
For more information about the next course please contact the Church Office.
Each year we take a group of our children (school years 3 to 6) to Junior SOLID – Junior SOLID is a Christian run festival day held in the grounds of Stubbers Adventure Centre in Upminster, Essex. Incorporating physical output and spiritual input the Junior SOLID day is a mix of entertainment, sports, games, challenges, mess, water, fun… Junior SOLID is a unique experience!
Over the summer holidays some of our young people attend a week-long camp called Contagious. Contagious is a Christian charity that organises conferences for young people in the UK. Contagious conferences are Bible saturated, Jesus centred, hard work, increasingly popular and great fun.
