Throughout the year we have extra events for our youth groups – nights out, weekends away and summer camps!
Sometimes IMPACT and MOMENTUM combine for a joint social event. This might replace the usual evening meetings, or – in the school holidays – it might be a daytime event. Previous socials include, water sports at the beach, wide games, barbecues and a November fireworks party.
During term time, we run Indoor Football on Monday nights. Anyone is welcome, regardless of skill level! It’s a time to have fun, burn off some energy and kick a ball around with your friends, and it’s just £3 to join in.
Each year, Barton Church runs a weekend away for their youth. The most recent weekends have been spent in Royal Tunbridge Wells at Rock UK Carroty Wood. Barton Youth have enjoyed climbing, high ropes, running through the mud, wading through puddles and taking part in the teaching sessions on what it means to follow Jesus.
Barton Church organises a trip to Soul Survivor each summer, where we gather with 6000 other young people and their leaders to worship and learn about Jesus. It’s a great opportunity to hang out with friends and with God, with plenty happening at the event each day and evening.
There are lots of other Christian events in the summer. We support any that our young people attend and love to hear about the things that happen during these fantastic events.
