We want teenagers to be gripped by the love of God. We want them to know that they are loved by God and for them to be equipped to love and serve Him for the rest of their lives.
In response to COVID-19 we have put all our programs on hold. This webpage will now become a resouse hub to help support, encourage and equip our teens to continue to follow Jesus.
You may see some resources on this page, but in the background we have 26 youth leaders who are contacting their groups and regularly checking in on how the teens in their group are coping. Check out our list of virtual groups to see when we meet. If you would like us to do the same for your teen please contact me.
St Matts Virtual YouthWe run various virtual small groups throughout the week
We are slowly transitioning our groups back to be face to face.
Check out our list of virtual groups for updates and our other resources below.
To help stay connected and to keep thinking about things from a Christian perspective we have some useful links and resources below.
