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, Wildfires and more. There’s something safe and fun for every age group, whether or not you’re used to church.

Matt, Sam, Ella 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!

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

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

Sundays

Guildford Morning Service:  10.00am at Yvonne Arnaud
At our Guildford morning service we provide fun activities for all ages. For youth in year 6-9 we run youth church. We have snacks, games consoles, 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.

That's not all - once a month, during our Guildford morning service, we take all the older youth in year 10+ out for breakfast at Wetherspoons. Meet us at the Yvonne Arnaud and we'll walk over to Wetherspoons from there. No need to bring any cash, breakfast is on us! Dates for breakfast this term are:

Sunday 23rd September
Sunday 14th October
Sunday 4th November
Sunday 25th November

Woking Morning Service: 9.30am at Hoe Valley School
At our Woking morning service we run an awesome group for year 6+. There's food, games consoles, loads of fun and we 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 10-18 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 4 Youth Collectives:

Year 6+7 Collective (Tuesdays)
Year 8+9 Collective (Mondays)
Year 10+11 Collective (Tuesdays)
Year 12+ Collective (Mondays)

Gro Groups are similar to Collectives but they're smaller and meet on Sundays before or after church, 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


Youth Clubs

Founders Youth Cafe: 3.30-5.00pm, Wednesdays at Founders Studio
On Wednesdays after school we run an awesome youth cafe for anyone in year 7+. Drop in after a long day at school for a smoothie, a waffle and kick back and relax. We've got Xbox One, PS4, table football, sport and loads more!


 Youth Band

7-9pm (bi-weekly) on Fridays at Founders Studio
We love worshipping God so every two weeks or so our youth band get together to practice. They then play at Youth Church the following Sunday. If you'd like to get involved in the youth band, send us an email or chat to one of the team. Find the practice dates for this term on the calendar section.
