At Headington Baptist Church we value young people massively as we seek to develop and grow the next generation of believers to be bold in their convictions, born out of a deep understanding and love of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The youth team at HBC believe in the authority and power of the Bible, the work of the Spirit in young people’s lives and the impact of being part of a Church community as foundational to our youth ministry.
We are passionate for young people to have the opportunity to know God and to make God known. We have a range of activities for young people to attend. The heart behind them is based on what Paul writes in his first letter to the Church at Thessalonica:
2:8 “Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.”
By investing in the young people by sharing the Gospel and our lives we pray that God will open the eyes of the blind and bring people from death to abundant life in Jesus (John 10:10/2 Corinthians 4:6).
Friday Night Youth
This is an opportunity to come along and have a great time whilst also having an opportunity to explore some of the big issues in life and how it applies to you.
Ignite: Years 6-8
Ignite offers a place for lots of fun activities at the end of a long week for young people. It’s lots of fun and lots of energy- get involved!
Flame: Years 8-10
Flame is a bit more chilled out, with the opportunity to sit and chat, play games and have discussion time- a great way to relax at the end of a week!
Blaze: Years 11-13
Our senior youth programme where you can hang out, chill out, eat food and play some games if you’re up for it. This is a great time to ask some of our leaders questions on the issues that come up throughout the week.
During our service on a Sunday morning the young people of our Church are in their own teaching programmes for their age group. This involves games, food and interactive teaching and Bible studies.
Wednesday Evening Bible Study
A new group. We’ll be working through the Gospel of Luke, exploring what it means for us today as well as enjoying food together and doing some challenges! This is for years 10-13 and will take place in the Church
Youth Worship Band
This kicks off also in November and will happen once a month on a Thursday night. This will be a time to develop your musical skills and gifting as well as enjoy spending time with other musical people.
We also have times away as a group of young people- these are at Soul Survivor for our senior youth and Fort Rocky for our junior youth. These are amazing times to get to know each other and to grow in our love, understanding and relationship with the Lord Jesus.
