Accelerate (XLR8) is the Godfirst youth for school years 7-13, where young people can build positive relationships with one another, explore the Christian faith, and be equipped to live as followers of Jesus in the challenging secular world they inhabit.
Every other Thursday evening during term time, from 7.30-9.30pm, we get together for a social time, with chat, games, discussing relevant topics facing today’s youth and plenty of treats. This is usually at The Chapel or across the town when youth activities take us “on the road.”
Youth have Sunday sessions alternative weeks. The programme involves fun and games and interactive bible activities that broadly follow the Sunday main meeting teaching series. Youth stay in the main meeting every other week to help them grow as part of the adult church.
Youth in Years 9-12, meet as a Godfirst Community
