We are currenly witout a paid youth minister, but have a great team of volunteers who are currently running our youth work, which is a combined youth work for young people from both St Andrew’s and All Saints.
We are currently advertising for a new Youth Minister and details can be found here.
Our Sunday groups provide sessions every week, except for during our monthly All Age Worship. Our heart is to first and foremost know each of our young people individually, and to build relationships with them. Secondly it is help them grow in their faith, through providing fun, interesting and challenging teaching around the Bible and the Christian faith. Thirdly is to show them what it means to share this message of God’s kingdom with their friends, families and schools.
We have two groups each Sunday which meet at St Andrew’s:
Pathfinders (11-14 year olds) is run by Simon and a team of older youth. They meet on Sunday mornings during the 10:30am Service to discuss, play games, read the Bible and pray. We usually have about 10 young people in Pathdfinders each Sunday.
CHAOS (14-18 year olds) – is currenly run by Alice, Tristan, Simon and Ellie. They meet on Sunday evenings in the church hall during the 6pm Service, gathering for hot chocolate and cake first at 5:45pm. Currently they are looking at a bit of Mark’s gospel each week, alongside playing games and just catching up with each other. On average we have about 15 young people join us each week.
We have a team of adult mentors who mentor our young poeple in small groups of 2 or 3. These mentor groups meet weekly or fortnightly to support the young people in their faith and in the challenges of life.
We also have social events every so often during the week and in Autumn 2021 ran Youth Alpha on Monday nights for young people from our churches and other churches around Malvern.
We love welcoming new people so please visit!
Our previous Youth Minister Eddy finished in Summer 2021 to go off to ordination training at Cambridge.
