Who & What?
YOUTH Here in the United Benefice (Youth HUB) is for young people from Yr 3 to Yr 11. There is a charge of £1 to cover the cost of snacks and help fund materials and social activities.
When & Where?
Youth HUB meets on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month from 4pm till 5.30pm at Orsett Churches Centre to enjoy fun activities, friendship and worship.
The young people are split into two groups – Yr 3 to Yr 6 and Yr 7 plus, who undertake fun activities to explore a Christian theme, or, talk from an invited guest, or, other activity. It is also planned to visit other youth groups, churches and places of interest.
As well as the regular meetings, the group have social events, generally involving food of some description; they also take part in wider faith based activities. Older members of Youth HUB sometimes assist with Kidz K’nexion Plus, our holiday club for children.
Young Enthusiastic Service (YES)
The group also does something we call ‘YES’ (Young Enthusiastic Service), where the young people organise and run a church service 3 times a year. These services have been met with praise and positive comments from those attending. https://hobnob.org.uk/news/yes-yes-yes/
A number of the older young people and adult helpers have attended the ‘SOLID’ Christian Youth Event at Stubbers Outdoor Centre in Upminster for the last 2 years. Some have stayed for the whole weekend and some of the younger ones have just come for the Saturday. SOLID offers opportunities to for worship and for taking part in a range of activities and using the facilities at Stubbers. It encourages teamwork as the young people help and encourage each other and grow in faith. https://hobnob.org.uk/news/solid-7-8-july-2018-stubbers/
