Youth Activities & Groups
Twynham Church for the Community has a strong heritage of activities for young people going right back to its beginning. That continues today, and we have a diverse roster of groups that meet together regularly. There’s lots of fun and friendship as we do life together and encourage one another in our personal relationships with Jesus. Our aim is to inspire young people to know Jesus and to follow Him no matter what it costs.

Youth Group – The Vibe
This is our youth group (11 – 18 years) that runs on Friday evenings from 7 – 9 pm. We play video games, table tennis, bake snacks and get our nails done! We also have interactive testimonies and teaching from the Bible, as well as events such as laser tag, ski bobbing, quizzes and a sleepover at Christmas.
TYG (Twynham Youth Group)
For young people in schools years 10-13. We get together on a monthly basis to do sophisticated things in cool places, like drink coffee and cook on the beach.
Who would win in a fight between Yoda and The Hulk? Or Groot and Chewbacca? If that’s the sort of argument that you want to weigh in on then 8-bit is the group for you. We also play retro and modern video games, read comic books and play board games, as well as having movie nights and trips out to the cinema. Taking place at the church 7 – 8.30 p.m. fortnightly on Wednesdays 8-bit is all about embracing your inner geek, and with the exception of the cinema trips it’s totally free. A great group to bring friends to!

Wild at Heart
What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a man of God? How are God’s men different from His women? How do I become a man of God? These are questions that start to swirl around in our heads from boyhood right through to adulthood. Wild at Heart is a 24-hour residential on 1st/2nd June 2018 to explore these themes. It’s for the young men who are a part of our youth activities at Twynham and includes adventure, fun, challenges, chats around the campfire and a whole lot of discovery about who God has made us to be. Ages 11 – 18 years.
