Youth at Cornerstone Church Kingston
Youth are an integral part of our church family at Cornerstone. Our goal is to help young people develop their own relationship with Jesus. In a challenging and changing time in their lives we want to encourage them to build their lives on truths of the Bible. We want our young people to feel part of a group of friends who encourage them to stay strong in their faith and to step out in showing Jesus to their friends. Whether they come from a church-going family or not, all young people will find our groups warm and friendly.
Soul (11 to 14 year olds)
We get together every Sunday during term time at the 10.30am meeting. We spend the time hearing from God’s Word in a relevant and engaging way. This might be through group discussion, interactive short talks, activities or accessible Bible Studies. Contact the Soul team.
Rooted (15 to 18 year olds)
Rooted meet every week during the 10.30 service. We have in-depth bible studies that are applicable to teens and help them to grapple with God’s word. Every other week we sit the service with the church family so that we can learn with the rest of the congregation through a sermon. Contact the Rooted team.
This event is perfect for those who want to find out what we’re about. We meet every Friday from 6.30pm to 8pm for 11 to 14s and 8pm to 10pm for 14s to 18s in The Hub. These socials are packed full of fun & laughter as we discover Jesus and undertake a wide range of activities.
Once a year we head away for a weekend together. It’s a great time for continuing to build our friendships and discover more about the God of the Bible. There are also high energy activities like assault course or high-rope action, chilled out fun like board or card games and late nights watching DVDs or roasting marshmallows.
Each summer almost all of our young people go away for a residential week. These encourage strong friendships, memorable experiences and the chance to explore their Christian faith in a sheltered environment whilst having a cracking good time! These weeks have often proven to be the highlight of the young peoples’ year.
