Powerhouse – Every Friday night we meet at our building in Putnoe to hang out together with game consoles, crafts and sports, play hilarious games and spend times in smaller groups chatting about specific topics, an event that’s happened, pretty much everything and anything. Powerhouse meets between 6:15 – 7:45pm and is primarily for Year 6 – Year 8.
Openhouse – Every Friday night we meet at our building in Putnoe to hang out together, play big group games and spend times in smaller groups chatting about specific topics, an event that’s happened, pretty much everything and anything. Openhouse meets between 8:15 – 10pm and is primarily for Year 9 – Year 13.
15+ - Every other Sunday (most regularly in the evening) we meet with those aged 15 and above for a really chilled evening together. This group is massively varied, sometimes we will meet at the church building for some worship and food together, sometimes we will go for a walk and sometimes we will meet at a house of one of our amazing leaders for a bible study, you can see our exact plans through the schedule here and more regularly through our Instagram (@woodsideyouth).
Clusters – This year we are trying something new under the name of clusters and we are so so excited. For the academic year either two or three young people will be put into a cluster with one of our incredible leaders. This will be a group where we can bible study together, chat about anything, and ask for and pray for each other. The aim would be for a cluster to meet once a month and this would be arranged depending on who is part of each group. We don’t expect everyone to want to do this but are opening it up to all age groups with a few adaptations made for those that are older, one of these being that if everyone is Year 10 or above we would have a Whatsapp group running alongside the monthly meetups.

WANT TO GET INVOLVED?
If you (or your young person) are in a school year group between 6 – 13 and want to come along to one of our groups then we would love to see you!
If it is your first time it would be really helpful for a parent/carer to complete our Youth Permission Form and send it to Ollie Hearn or bring it to your first group. After that you are all sorted and are welcome to join us. There’s no need to book in to any of our meetings, however if it is your first time and you want to let us know feel free to email Ollie or drop us a DM on our Instagram (@woodsideyouth).
