Each Sunday we encourage the senior youth to take a full part in serving and sharing with the main congregation. There's always opportunities to serve, as well as time to get to know older members of the Westlake church familly.
Alongside this, every other week during term time, there is a Bible study that looks at the same passage as the sermon.
Friday Night Youth
Open to anyone aged 11-18. This year we are meeting each Friday** at the church offices in St Sulpice from 7:30-9:30pm, where we spend our time playing games, eating food together and then breaking into different age groups for interactive bibe study, where this term we are looking at 7 key bible verses. It's a great oppportunity to build friendships and think through who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him.
** Friday youth takes place each Friday during term time, except when it is youth band instead...
Youth Band (once a month on Friday nights)
Open to all junior and senior youth. This year we will meet once a month at the Foyer in St-Sulpice, from 7:30-9:30pm. If you play an instrument or are just eager to get involved, do come along, as Linley will find a place for you!
Retreats & Events (Various times throughout the year)
These are a fantastic opportunity for the youth to get together and enjoy fellowship, discuss issues and worship together.
We do a youth retreat in the autumn every year, where we head off to a cosy Swiss chalet in the mountains of Rougemont.
Plans are also being made for another retreat in the springtime, with a particular focus on explaining the good news about Jesus (in French & English) to those who do not yet know Him.
