“I really enjoy the Huddle. It makes church and learning about God really fun! All of us in the Huddle really love it – the Huddle is so fun!”
The Huddle is our parish youth group which meets at Christ Church on Friday evenings during term time from 6pm until 7.30pm. All young people from year 7 upwards are welcome.
It’s a time of fun and games with snacks and time for a chat. It’s free! Please contact Jody, our student youth worker at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In August 2018, there was a Huddle Holiday – here is a video about their trip to Scotland:
At the Huddle we strive to create an environment where young people can have fun, get to know one another and explore their faith.
Incorporating this, so far this academic year we have had a trip to Sutcliffe park climbing wall and gotten competitive and a delicious trip to Kaspa’s dessert Café.
Week by week we enjoy a portion of the evening dedicated to all sorts of wonderful games or crafts an open forum for prayer and a weekly discussion point.
Topics we have discussed include looking at God’s calling on the lives of various Bible characters, the life of Daniel and the intersection of faith and mental health.
In July 2016, some of the girls from the Huddle along with other young people from St. Michael’s church went away with on a weekend residential trip to Grosvenor Hall in Kent. The weekend included a variety of activities, such as abseiling, indoor climbing, outdoor laser tag and a campfire. Alongside these activities there were two sessions looking at strong female characters from the Bible and what they could teach us today.
The group looked at Ruth, learning about her faithfulness and loyalty and how our decisions can have a lasting impact. Then Esther and what it means to stand up for something you believe in. The whole trip was thoroughly enjoyable, it was great to see the girls working as a team, supporting one another to overcome fears and problems, building some great friendships and achieving things they didn’t think were possible. It was also encouraging to see a group of young people thinking about the Christian Faith and the impact their decisions and choices can have on their peers and communities
“It’s a great way to meet new people and develop your faith in Christianity at the same time.”
