At Street Baptist Church, during the course of a week, there are three clubs that the youth and children can attend. These are KidZone club, YouthZone 1 club and YouthZone 2 club.
In order to decide which one is the correct age group please look at the categories below which will explain fully what goes on and who is allowed to attend.
KidZone Club (which meets every Thursday from 6-7.15pm) is all about fun, friendship and finding out more about God.
It’s designed for children in school years 2-6 (approx age 6-11), and because of numbers we do need to be strict about these age limits. It’s a great place for letting off unspent energy, getting creative and spending time with friends.
Each evening there is a key activity around which the evening revolves. This may be a craft activity, or a challenge, or games, or a group activity. Most weeks the children that come will be able to bring home something they have made to show to their parents.
Every week there is a story that comes from the Bible, and there will be time to chat about the story while the children do an activity related to it.
We have around 15 children coming to this club each week. All the children enjoy the club, so why not come along and try it out yourself?
Youth Zone 1 Club
Youth Zone 1 Club is a youth club for young people in school years 7-9 (approx. ages 11-14). It is open to any young person of this age, and there is no charge for most of our activities.
The club meets on Friday nights of school term time from 7.30pm until 9.00pm in the Church Hall (though some evenings we will give prior notice to finish at 9.30). We have 20-30 young people each week, although some weeks it can rise to 35.
Youth Zone 2 Club
Youth Zone 2 Club meets on Friday during school term times. We are a club for anyone in school years 10-13 whether you are currently in school or college or have left school to work.
The club meets on Friday nights of school terms from 7.30pm until 9.00pm (though some evenings we will give prior notice to finish later), gathering in the Church Middle Room initially. We have 20-30 older teenagers meeting each week.
Each week the club night is themed, and often we will travel out to places away from the church itself. For example, over the past year we have been 10 pin bowling, swimming, ice-skating, gone to the cinema together, canoeing, driving vehicles on a farm as well as both making and trying lots of food!
Each club night we have a 10 to 15 minute time where a guest speaker will tell us about their experience of being a Christian, or will bring us a talk from the Bible. This is a key part of our activity, and will often lead to further discussion either in the evening or at the YZ2 Sunday bible study.
