Our Youth is made up of 2 groups which meet the individual needs of our young people, our Sunday services start with everyone together in the main hall for worship, after which the youth go to their groups. Once a month we have our All-In service which is a family service where all generations worship together, on this Sunday there are no Youth groups. Our Youth also enjoy building relationships at summer camps and weekends away.
VOLTAGE - SCHOOL YEARS 7 to those aged 14
At Voltage we focus on learning to apply the Bible to everyday life. Our aim is to help our young people develop an independent and real faith in Jesus and they are given the opportunity to pray for one another, express what they feel God is saying, study the bible, grow personally through prayer, ask questions, share their faith and think through various life choices.
Voltage meet on Wednesday nights in the upstairs “Assembly Room” at Midsomer Norton Town Hall from 7pm to 8:30pm. It’s a great chance to meet up with friends from church during the week and meet others from our community where the relationships of the young people can grow in a relaxed and fun environment. We have an action-packed program each term which engages everyone and includes bringing God into our everyday lives.
IGNITE - 14 to 18 years
Ignite meet twice a month on Sunday mornings during the main service, the aim for Ignite is to learn more about God, take time to studying the Bible, look at who God really is and the plan He has for each person individual. Our aim is to promote living Christian lives in the world, we encourage the young people to be ready for the future whether it's employment, Uni or College, equipping them go out into the world as contagious Christians.
On Friday evenings Ignite meet from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at the Welton Chapel, these times together are interactive, with food, games and fellowship. We pray for each other, talk about what is happening in our lives, where God fits into it and use the time to build on our relationships within the group.
We are passionate about being inclusive; and have people on our volunteer team with specialist skills in special and additional needs. We are striving to be a church that welcomes every child, no matter what challenges they may experience.
Welton Baptist Church takes child protection very seriously. No-one is allowed to volunteer in any of our children's or young people's groups without having been through a strict vetting procedure including a DBS check. We have a clear policy in place if a child or young person discloses information to any of our volunteers, and we have an obligation to pass on any concerns we may have over a child's or young person's wellbeing. We seek to act sensitively at all times.
