YOUTH

We create spaces where young people can grow in their understanding and experience of a relationship with the God that created them. We aim to equip and embolden them to stand out as Christians where He has placed them. We are dedicated to being part of a life-long journey for young people finding their identity, purpose and fulfilment in Him. Follow us on Instagram for updates @htclaygateyouth.

Partnering with parents is a crucial part of how we do this. Parents receive regular email updates about the big things, and Zoom codes and reminders through our Parent WhatsApp Group – separate for PF and YF.

You can register your 11-18 year old here or if you would like to find out more about our work with young people, contact our Youth Minister Holly Byles.
