Young People at Central

New Generation

We call our junior church or sunday school, 'New Generation'. All the children and young people join in the church service at 10:45am and leave for 'New Generation' after the second hymn.

We all meet together, first, to hear each other's news and singing Happy Birthday when the occasion arises. Then we talk about forthcoming events and activities. We take a collection and, from time to time, the members decide to which cause they would like to dedicate it.

Then we usually go to our age-group classes - G 1 (for ages 3 to 6+); G2 ( for ages 6+ to 9+) and G3 (for age 10+) . We have teams of teachers for each age-group who work on a 'one month on - one month off' basis. It's here that we hear, or act out, stories, draw, make models, have discussions, and play games.

From time to time we stay together and practise for special services or performances, such as our annual Christmas Nativity.

We aim to make every child or young person feel important and distinctive, and to make everything we do as fun and enjoyable as possible. The content does, in time, become increasingly serious as we try to help members gain a religious perspective, develop a personal relationship with God and establish their own faith - but we never force matters.

Youth Provision

Young people of the Circuit meet at Hollingworth Methodist Church on Sunday evenings - for a range of social and discussion events, usually culminating in food!
