Young People (11-18s)
Motivate and Distinctive
These are Bible study groups for teenagers and meet throughout term time.
Motivate (school years 7-9) meets at Duke St during part of the 10am Sunday service. We are normally a group of 12-15 young people, and new people are always welcome to join us. We meet together to read the Bible, understand what it means and how we should think about it where we are now. We also have time to pray, talk through questions and socialise a bit.
Distinctive (school years 10-13) meets at Duke Street after the 10am Sunday service (from 11.30-12.30) for a chance to catch up, get to know each other and study the Bible together. We think about what the Bible means, how it is relevant to our lives today and how we can encourage each other to keep following Jesus.

Duke St Youth (DSY) & Friday Night Project (FNP)
These are Christian youth groups for 11-18s, meeting on Fridays throughout term time.
DSY (school yrs 7-9) is mainly social with lots of activities and events. We also look at hot topics we face in life from the bible’s perspective. They are chilled and manic evenings with mates, providing the opportunity for people at the church to build friendships and to welcome friends who would not normally come to church.
We meet at Duke Street on alternate Fridays from 7-9pm.
Friday Night Project (school yrs 10-13) is open to all, whether following Jesus or just looking in to the Christian faith. We do lots of social things such as film nights, games evenings, trips out and have meals together. The first Friday of each month is a social and the other weeks we do lots of fun things and have a short talk to help us think through the Christian faith. We meet every Friday evening from 7.30-9.30pm in term time, either at Duke Street or a home in the local area.

Once a year, both age groups head off together for a weekend away. It’s a great chance for building friendships and discovering more about the God of the Bible. There are high energy activities like go-karting, lacrosse, and footie as well as more chilled out fun like graffiti art or card making and board games. We’ll even enjoy games in the dark and singing around the fire roasting marshmallows!

Each summer many young people go away for a residential week. These encourage strong friendships, memorable experiences and the chance to explore their Christian faith in a safe environment whilst having a cracking good time! These weeks have often proven to be the highlight of the young peoples’ year. We do hope that you’ll come and join the youth at Duke Street – it’d be great to have you!
