Willowfield Youth wants to see an army of young people changing this community, making a positive difference and following in the example of Jesus and his teaching.
This is the place to be on Friday night. All sorts of activities take place here such as table–tennis, nail–painting, karaoke, Xbox & PS4, UV parties and anything else the team can come up with. Active Youth, 8.30pm – 10pm at the Church Halls for Y8 – Y14
pursYOU, is all about putting you, the young person at the centre. Taking time out to have banter, be inspired, reflective, informed and up–skilled. Taking place in Willowfield Church Halls, anyone in Y8 – Y14 is welcome to attend.
If you are engaged in our programmes on a Sunday or during the week, we want to create an opportunity for you to do life with one another. The HUT will consist of themed nights and plenty of outings to other youth Christian events. The HUT will be from 7.30pm – 9pm during the first 3 Saturdays of the month.
Cell groups are an opportunity for you and your mates to get together and run the show! Between 5 & 15 of you meeting together, you organise the itenary and you have 2 leaders doing life with you.
If you attend Ashfield Boys/Girls or Breda Academy we work alongside other churches to support you and your mates in your school context. We are in drawing alongside pupils, supporting you in any way we can and also running environments where you can come along, bring your mates and grow in your faith!
We hit Breda Academy on a Tuesday lunchtime doing detached work, building relationships and running faith based small groups. On Thursday lunchtime you will find us facilitating SU.
In Ashfield Boys you will find us in the SU on a Monday lunchtime, running “Connect”, connecting with God and each other.
At Ashfield Girls we partner with other churches and organisations to take classes such as Learning for Life and Work and R.E.
The Great Escape
The Great Escape, or Camp as it’s also known takes place during July or August each year.
We take 50 – 60 young people along with 20 leaders away for a week of activities, these range from go–karting, watersports, beach days, forest days, sports days and more. No Great Escape is ever the same with new themes uniquely shaping each year.
Summer Madness has been running for thirty years and is the largest Christian youth festival in Ireland. Taking place at Glenarm Castle in the first weekend in July, we pack our tents and sleeping bag and camp for the five day festival.
