Youth

Ignite

Our Youth group has many exciting activities and opportunities for young people to make friends, grow in their faith and serve alongside the adults in the church.

The focus of our youth work is to make life make sense. We encourage our youth to grow into people who love God and love all that God has created. From relevant and engaging teaching to trips out together and community work, everything we do is built around providing a safe and accepting space.

Sundays at DBC

  • The youth (secondary school age) meet in their own space. Here they can relax and be who they naturally are.
  • Our sessions revolve around biblical themes and bring ideas that are both engaging and relevant for the issues and struggles faced by our youth today.
  • Our youth workers are trained and are all DBS and Safeguarding cleared.
  • The youth's Sunday programme is decided by them. They know what they want to talk about, and we're happy to explore their lives with them, offering guidance and that little bit of Jesus' wisdom where we can.
  • We encourage the youth to serve both in the church and in the community. The youth are a regular feature of DBC's main worship services running everything from audio/visuals to prayers and welcomes. They also have a brilliant band that not only plans and plays the music but leads the entire congregation in worship.

Other times and places

  • Our youth are part of the Telford Youth Fellowship, a group that gets together at Meeting Point House every other Monday. Band meet at 6.30pm and TYF group runs from 7.30-9pm. TYF is an evening full of games and activities and the group often go ice skating, bowling, rock climbing and other great stuff, all while they learn about who Jesus is.
  • We travel up to Merseyside and take part in Ignite, a lively evening of worship and praise (the picture at the top of this page is from one of our Ignite visits).
