Chill is the youth group at HT for 14-18s and has a great mix of different people, which means there’s no end to opinions or thoughts in our open discussions.
At Holy Trinity Aylesbury we are keen to provide opportunities for all young people to engage with Jesus and to spend time with other young people asking similar questions about life. We have a busy youth programme, in which we hope there is something that everyone will be able to enjoy. Get in touch, and come along – we’d be really happy to see you!! Why not get involved at Glo Youth Cafe twice a month – there’s loads to do, and we make a great team!
DOING STUFF TOGETHER
As well as running Glo Youth Cafe we do other stuff like eating great pizza, getting together for fresh and relevant worship times and where we find out what the Bible has to say about doing life as a teenager. We like games of extreme UNO, film nights, raising money for projects, finding ways of getting involved in community action, and lot’s more. We want to show our town that teenagers are a great part of the community – so we look for opportunities to get out and about, and show our faith in action – big or small.
CHILL – Every Sunday Evening 7pm – 9pm
Joined with Broughton Church, Chill Youth Group meets every Sunday evening, but we like to mix it up and do different things throughout the month.
1st Sunday – Café Drop In, 7-9pm at More+ Café (HP20 1NG)
More+ Café drop in is hosted by Broughton Church and provides a really lovely space to bring your friends, have a hot chocolate and play uno. It is also somewhere you can find leaders who love to listen and will chat and pray with you.
2nd & 4th Sunday – Chill, 7-9pm in Holy Trinity Foyer
We meet together as a whole youth group to eat & drink, catch up and play games before splitting into smaller discussion groups. Between now and Easter 2017 we will be following Youth Alpha, exploring some big questions in the Christian faith, and asking any questions we have of our own. Look out for details of our Alpha Weekend Away in February 2017!
3rd Sunday – Fuel, 7-9pm in Holy Trinity Foyer
Fuel: Café Church is linking with Chill from September 2016! We are really looking forward to ‘churching’ together. Join us for contemporary worship, a challenging bible message from visiting speakers and a really great café! This term we are starting a new series focussing on radical discipleship. The Youth room is also open if you fancy taking some time out with your friends to play pool. The café is ‘pay what you can’ so bring along a bit of money if you can!
Our cell groups run on Tuesday and Thursday during term time and provide an opportunity to meet in small groups with friends, share great food, pray together and discuss what’s going on in the world around us. If you would like to be part of a cell group here are the details:
Tuesday Cell – 4-6pm Holy Trinity Foyer
At Tuesday cell we love to play board games, card games & talk super heroes! You can come along straight from school expecting a warm welcome, great snacks, and lively conversation.
Thursday Cell – 7-9pm Holy Trinity Foyer
At Thursday cell we love Jaffa cakes. We gather to eat dinner together every week, followed by the chance to share news, ask questions and journey towards Jesus together.
GLO & AFTERGLO – 1st & 3rd Fridays from 6.30pm – 8:30pm
Glo Youth Café is open to anyone at secondary school and is a great place just to hang out and invite friends to do the same. There are games consoles, sports, table tennis, baking, craft, laptop, music, and nail painting. There is also a tuckshop selling drinks & snacks for 25p!
We invite those in years 10-13 to help lead Glo and this involvs setting up, running activities, being positive role models, befriending others and giving feedback about how we can improve Glo.
As a way to say thank you we have AfterGlo celebrations once every half term, from 8.30pm til about 10pm, where Chill are invited to stay for pizza, games & awards!
YOUTH DROP-IN – 1st Sunday 10:30am – 11:30am HT Youth Room.
Come along and hang out in the Youth Room with friends, eat bacon sandwiches, play table football and take a look at our monthly theme. You’re very welcome to join us for the whole time or just for 10 minutes…we’d love to see you there.
In previous years we have taken Chill to France, Cornwall & Somerset. We are already planning our residential for 2017 to Soul Survivor festival in Peterborough, August 2017. Details to follow! Check out this year’s promo video – www.soulsurvivor.com and ask friends who went in 2016 about it!
Details of some one-off day trips will be popping up throughout the year so keep on the lookout for them! Previously we have been to places such as laser quest, paintball, bounce MK, [REBOOT], Wendover Woods, The Works and many more.
Members of our Chill Youth Group have recently got involved with packing boxes at the Aylesbury foodbank and we’d love you to join us! It is a great way to serve the local community and it’s actually pretty good fun! We are always looking for more opportunities too…so if God has given you a passion for something and you want to join with friends to make a difference we would love to hear about it!
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE….
From January 2017 we are hoping to launch a monthly joint church youth service and we would really appreciate your prayers as the youth workers in the town work together with AVYFC to make this happen.
