Youth

Our team of professional youth workers, interns and volunteers run fantastic youth work on Sundays, fun youth clubs during the week, plus regular outings to things like ice skating, camping trips, Soul Survivor, Focus and more. There’s something safe and fun for every age group, whether or not you’re used to church.

Matt, Jessica, Sam and the team also work in most of the local schools during the week, supporting children and young people one-to-one, so they’re well known and popular throughout the area!

All our youth and children’s workers are fully DBS checked and are vetted and trained to ensure maximum child safety in all our activities.

Most of our activities take place either at Allen House, Founders Studio Yvonne Arnaud Theatre or The Lighthouse. Find details on our venues here.

WHAT’S HAPPENING


Holy Spirit Bootcamp

Sunday 20th May, 9am-8.30pm at The Lighthouse, Woking

Come join us for a day of learning more about who the Holy Spirit it is and how to pray for people.

We're going to have such an awesome day. We'll kick off by heading over to Woking for the Emmaus Rd Woking morning service at the Lighthouse. Then we'll eat lunch together before a workshop and then hitting the streets to pray for people. Then we'll head back to Guildford in time for the Emmaus Rd Guildford evening service to share stories of what's happened!

If you want to learn more about the Holy Spirit and get better equipped to pray for the people around you then this is the day for you.

Please note, there will be no youth session at our Guildford morning service on this day.

Sundays

Guildford Morning Service:  10.00am at Yvonne Arnaud
At our Sunday morning services we provide fun activities for all ages. For youth in year 6-9 we run youth church in Founders Studio during our Guildford morning service. We have breakfast, Playstation 4, loads of games, time to hang out with friends, worship and we learn about what it means to follow Jesus. There are also groups for 0-10 year olds in the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.

Woking Morning Service: 9.30am at The Lighthouse
From 6th May we'll be running an awesome youth session at our Woking morning service for year 6+. There'll be food, games consoles, loads of fun and we'll learn about what it means to follow Jesus. There are also groups for 0-10 year olds.

Guildford Evening Service: 6.30pm at Founders Studio
A bunch of the older youth go along to the evening service. We all sit together and have a great time!


Youth Collectives and Gro Groups

Collectives are our midweek discipleship groups for 11-18 year olds. We meet every week on Mondays or Tuesdays to eat dinner together, hang out and explore what it means to follow Jesus. There are currently 3 Youth Collectives - one for year 7-8, one for year 9-10 and one for year 11+.

Gro Groups are similar to Collectives but they're smaller and meet at more flexible times, and usually in coffee shops! Particularly good if you live further away or can't get along to a Collective during the week!

If you'd like to join a Youth Collective or a Gro Group or would like some more info, drop us an email on youth@emmausrd.com
