We love to welcome youth to be part of our church family at St James. During our group meetings we aim to teach the Bible to everyone in an engaging way, as well as encouraging friendships amongst the groups in a safe and fun environment. 

Week 3: 25th – 31st July 2020
Every summer the town of Keswick hosts a three-week Convention, which attracts some 15,000 Christians from the UK and around the world. The event provides Bible teaching for all ages, vibrant worship, a sense of unity across generations and denominations. And it all takes place in the beautiful Lake District.
St James’ youth will have the opportunity to attend week 3 of the convention:
Saturday 25th July – Friday 31st July 2020
This is open to any young person who has completed school year 9 and up (ages: 14-19). 
We have already reserved a self-catering hostel for our sole use, which lies just 5 miles from the town of Keswick, enabling easy access to the convention. The Lonscale building is able to accommodate up to 26 people in a variety of (en-suite!) rooms. Transport to and from the convention, in the form of a small minibus, will also be provided. This accommodation should provide us with a warm and comfortable place to stay, while transport will allow maximum flexibility to attend the convention and youth program as well as being able to explore the local area and local facilities. For example, taking part in water-sports, boat trips, pitch and putt, walks, shopping in the town of Keswick, barbecues by the river or simply enjoying an ice cream! 
If you would like to come or would like to find out more please speak to Ben or go to www.keswickministries.org for more details.

Youth On Sundays

During term time, on the 2nd and 4th (& 5th) Sunday of the month, those who are aged between 11-15 meet just round the corner from the church at 6 Church Lane at 11am. They have their own group for Bible teaching, discussions and activities. The youth return to church just before the end of the service.
