Young people

Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we can't currently meet as young people in the usual way – you can still find out about our youth group at the bottom of this page. In the mean time, these activities will change with the Church seasons – why not get stuck in to a Pentecost craft and the nex season coming up - Lent - starting with Shrove Tuesday - YES - Pancake Day?

Youth Confirmation Sessions

The Fab Three  

Energetic, knowledgeable, fun are three words to describe the three young people at the first of their youth confirmation sessions.

We looked at and discussed the significance of a crucifix, pulpit and altar. Claire’s colourful stoles helped us think about the Church seasons and we reminded each other about Lent and Holy Week. It was good to get up close to the Communion silverware and reflect on the importance of Jesus’ death and resurrection. These three young people will be able to join with other young people and adults, who had their confirmation sessions before Covid, at a Confirmation service for the deanery on Monday 28 February at Lanivet Parish Church at 7pm.

Make A Rolling Prayer Loop

St Matthew's Church in Burnley teach us how to make a rolling prayer look – fun to use, pretty to look at, and great for helping us pray! Watch the video to the left and let us know if you have a go.


Pentecost food

Any excuse to play with your food has got to be a good thing! Could you decorate flame biscuits like these from Flame Creative Kids?
What about using red, orange and yellow peppers to make a flame pizza or wrap? 

SPY is our youth group for young people in year 6 to 10. In normal circumstances, we meet about once a month on a Sunday afternoon, for fun and games, and to explore an aspect of faith together. In the last few months, we have topped pizzas, baked bread, made Christmas tree decorations, come up with entrepreneurial schemes, and discovered creative prayer.

We have great trips out too, to have fun and help others – recently, we've seen Pilgrim's Progress at the cinema, and have been carol singing around local care homes. 

If you'd like to join us, and hear about upcoming events and opportunities to get involved, have a parent or guardian sign up below to our newsletter, SPY:News.
