In uncertain times, we believe that young people are asking some big questions about life and searching for a sense of purpose. In our youth work at King's, we hope to encourage them along their journey by helping them explore the Christian faith in engaging ways to which they can relate.
Young people have an important contribution to make within society, and we believe that active involvement in church life helps them to discover their skills and reach their potential.
In the midweek and Sunday programmes, our mission is to see a diverse community of young people learning to love and live for God.
Ignite is our youth work for young people of secondary school age. We meet on Friday nights (term-time only) in Catford and Lee from 7.30-9.30pm. Most of the youth from our Downham site go along to Catford.
Across the term young people can expect to chill out with friends, hear relevant and engaging talks, have fun and enjoy a range of other activities.
We have a number of different groups that meet most Sundays during our services to serve our youth.
iD is a place where young people school years 7-9 meet together to explore the Bible in more depth. iD meets at our Catford (9.30am and 11.30am) and Lee (10.30am) sites and is a brilliant environment for young people to make new friends and learn about God.
Engage is the Downham site and Beckenham site youth programme for young people in school years 5-9. Meeting on Sundays during the meeting (9.30am & 11.30am), Engage is a fun place to be where young people get to learn more about the Christian faith.
iFive6 is our youth programme at our Catford (9.30am and 11.30am) and Lee (10.30am) sites for young people in school years 5-6. iFive6 consists of lots of games, sweets and short talks from the Bible.
Newday is an annual event gathering thousands of young people aged 12-19 years old (those currently in school years 7 to 13). The aim of Newday is to envision and equip in God a generation to play their part in the world. The event consists of seminars, worship, teaching, sporting tournaments, and opportunities to get involved in various social action projects in the city of Norwich.
Newday 2019 takes place from Monday 29 July - Saturday 3 August (departing Sunday 4th).
Whether it's your first time or you're coming back again, Newday is a guaranteed place to make new friends, have fun, help the local community and it can give you an amazing opportunity to encounter God. Newday has been a life-changing week for many - we hope it will be the same for many more in 2019! Every young person comes away with good memories and experiences to share. It really is a massive highlight for all involved! For this reason alone, you don't want to miss out on going to Newday.
