How do you grow a thriving youth group?

This is the question we hope to explore on our training day in November. We are really excited by this event and the chance to meet with other people to explore what youth work looks like in the 21st Century. The event takes place at Christ Church in Leamington Spa on Saturday 8th November.

How to grow a thriving youth group training event


We all know the statistics which show how young people are getting more and more disengaged and disconnected from Church. Rather than just getting depressed, Thrive exists to not only stem the flow of young people leaving the Church, but to actively pursue seeing more young people coming into contact with the Living God. We are holding this training event to inspire others to join in and to seek God together for how to best reach out to this generation.

The day will be a mix of input from Thrive’s director, Andy Castle, as well as time to process what you’ve heard with like-minded people. We want this day to be as useful as possible and that you will leave with new ideas as well as a renewed motivation to keep going in your essential work with young people at your church.

If you already have some kind of youth group at your church then see if you can send all your youth leaders along together. There will be opportunities to discuss together key principles to growing a youth group.

You may be at a church where there is no youth group at the moment. We hope this day will help equip you to take the bold step of starting something new. Could you encourage someone to come with you to the day and to dare to dream what God might have in store for your church?

Tickets for the day are £20 per person or you can purchase two tickets for £30 if booked by 18th October. To find out more and to book your tickets visit our events page.

Please spread the word about this event and let’s work together to do our best to see this generation thriving in our churches.
