Pathfinders and Koinonia
In our work with young people, we have focused in recent years on building the Biblical teaching content of our work and on training leaders. Across the two age groups of Pathfinders and Koinonia, we have an enthusiastic and committed team of volunteers, comprising both long-term and new leaders. Our vision is to make disciples of young people at Christ Church and point them to Jesus and his gospel from the Scriptures and to equip them for lives of faithful love and service of Christ both now and in the years ahead.
Our “Koinonia” group for 15-18s meets after the 6pm evening service for a time of food, socialising and applying the sermon with an average attendance of 15-20. Socials take place to which members invite friends and groups also go to the excellent “Sorted” youth events in London on occasion. We are heavily plugged into, and grateful for, the Sparkford2 CYFA camp.
Our “Pathfinder” group for 10-14s meets during the 10.30am service, with a weekly attendance of around 15. The sessions are a mixture of teaching, short games and time for prayer. Monthly Friday socials are geared towards giving the young people fun events to which they can easily invite friends.
