We believe passionately that young people are an integral part of our church family and so we seek to provide a safe, fun and exciting environment for them to learn more about how great God is, to put their trust in Jesus and learn how to live for him to the full.
There is an exciting variety of activities for teens at LCBC that attract many young people. The activities are designed to support them as they grow in faith and help them to stay engaged and involved in the church, as well as reaching out to young people in the local community.
NB These two groups meet together and separately on alternate weeks.
Impact is our school year 7 - 9 group. Impact wants to help young people know Jesus and grow in their relationship with him, not just on a Sunday morning but through the whole week and throughout all of their lives.
Impact meets on:
Tuesdays from 6.45 to 8.30 for a Bible Study. This a great time for growing in our knowledge of and relationship with Jesus. On alternate weeks we will also be meeting jointly with Rare:r. It’s great to meet up with friends midweek to be encouraged by one another and through God’s word.
On Sunday mornings we attend the first part of the church service to join in with the worship before heading upstairs to learn from God’s word and from one another. We have an opportunity, occasionally, to serve the younger children by helping in their classes and sometimes we stay in church to learn how we can get the most out of a service and transition to being in church full-time.
Rare:r is for young people in school years 10 to 13 and takes place on a Tuesday evening from 6.45 to 8.30. It aims to present Jesus to teens and to challenge them about what it means to be a Christian and follow Jesus with their whole lives. We spend time looking at God’s Word, applying it to our lives, praying for one another and just relaxing.
On alternate weeks we will be meeting jointly with Impact.
Rare:r is a good place to create deep friendships and life long Christian brothers and sisters.
Term 1 – Our theme is Be Ready as we work through Paul’s letter 1 Thessalonians
Term 2 – We will be working through some Bible truths that we Need to Know?
Term 3 – In Luke's gospel we will meet people who had Encounters with Christ and were changed forever.
As part of Impact/Rarer we will be giving the young people opportunities to help serve others and the wider church.
Throughout the year there will be special events for Impact/Rarer. These will include one off socials, time spent with young people from other churches, events geared towards inviting friends who don’t yet know Jesus and a weekend away.
