St Stephen’s is a great place to come if you want to make new friends, play, chill or learn more about Jesus!
Here is some of what we do :

Amplified

Amplified

Amplified is for ages 11-14 (school years 6-9) and is for anyone who wants to explore and find out more about God and how He is relevant to us today.
We come together as friends to learn, chat and have fun; as well as to meet new people and share life. Our purpose is to build community together, and support each other in all aspects of our lives.

Our activities include

Sundays
Amplified meets at St Stephen’s Church on Sunday at 10:45am till the end of the service (around 12:15pm). The meeting involves group discussion, teaching, Bible study and games.

Thursdays
Amplified meets every Thursday evening from 5:30-7pm at the Crypt, Our lady of Lourdes church.

Anyone is welcome to join us.  Please get in touch with one of the youth leaders if you’d like to know more:

The Wave

The Wave is an evangelistic outreach event designed to reach out into and serve our community in practical ways. During the year this usually involves redecorating,
gardening, etc. The team meets every other Saturday at St Stephen’s church to pray and discuss what is going to be done before going out in different groups to serve.

There is also a week long summer event where both adults and youth are encouraged to get involved in serving the community. This can be as part of the normal work teams, decorating or gardening etc but also includes helping in the multitude of other jobs that the week demands. The week kicks off with a large church service in a tent on Lion Green. Throughout the week there is more community service, a cafe, prayer ministry and other events held in the tent such as gigs, comedy shows and a family fun day. See our events page for the next big Wave event and this link for pictures of these two events:

Schools Work

We have been working in schools in the local area for quite some time now.  The majority of our work is centred at Woolmer Hill where we are involved in the following activities:

  • Assemblies,
  • R.E. lessons
  • Confirmation lessons
  • Relationship and Self-esteem classes
  • Detached work.

We also run a weekly lunch club/occasional RE lessons at the Royal School and do assemblies/occasional RE lessons at Shottermill Junior and Infant schools.
Please continue to pray for us that God will bless the work we are doing and young people will come to know him through our efforts.
