Coronavirus update: We’re really disappointed that we can’t meet with the young people who come to BBC Youth at the moment. It’s a tough time that we’re in and it’s important that we look to both God and one another for help and support.
We’re working on resources for our young people so that they can continue to be encouraged and built up in these coming months (see below). We’re also looking into whether we can facilitate ‘virtual youth gatherings’ and we’ll let you know if and when this will be possible.
We do have Bookham Baptist Youth social media accounts.
- Instagram: youthatbookhambc
- Youtube: BookhamBaptistYouth – We’ve uploaded one video blog to Youtube already and there will be more to come. We’re aiming to get one up every 2-3 days over coming weeks.
- Facebook: We’re working on getting our youth facebook page up to speed again. Bear with us on this one!
If you want to spend time with your young person(s) encouraging them to grow in faith then why not check out
Hopefully that’s helpful to you all. Do stay in touch with us!
Bookham Baptist Youth Team
At BBC Youth we live by the phrase #livedifferent. We’re passionate about trying to live Jesus shaped lives wherever we are & whatever we’re doing.
We’re open to the adventures that Jesus has for us; wherever that might lead us & whatever that might mean us doing. Most of all wherever we are & whatever we’re doing we want to make Jesus famous.
We have loads going on for 11-18’s! So if you are between 11-18 then we would love to hear from you and see you at one of our events or if you are a parent of a teenager and would like some more information about who we are and what we do we would also love to hear from you as well!
The Hub is for year 11 upwards & meets on a Monday evening as a small group. If you want to go a bit deeper & wider in the adventure of life with Jesus then this is the group for you. A great, safe space in which to worship, pray, learn & be honest with each other … while enjoying awesome hot chocolate & cake!
We meet most Friday evenings during term time at 7.30pm at Bookham Baptist Church. We have an awesome time together with crazy games, pamper area, chill-out zone, some worship & some time to think about how Jesus can change us & challenge us.
Sundays at BBC Youth is a great opportunity to grow in our understanding of what it means to #livedifferent. We take time to go deeper into the Bible, pray for each other & think about how we can #livedifferent during the coming week & generally have an amazing time together!
Slum Survivor: Most years we build a slum in the church car park & spend the night sleeping in it! It’s just a small way for us to experience how a billion people in our world spend a lifetime. We also raise money for charities that help people break free from poverty & oppression.
Soul Survivor Celebrations Watford: These take place every couple of months & are a great opportunity to worship with other young people & receive great teaching. Check out Soul Survivor for more info.
Youth Festival: This year we’re taking our youth to Limitless Festival in August
Secret Santa Weekend: Around Christmas, we all spend a weekend at Church eating and sharing presents! We also watch movies and play a lot of games!
Fireworks Night: Every year we meet up and light some fireworks off! We also have plenty of food and sparklers as well as wide games in the local park!
Day Trips: Throughout the year we have day trips, including to the beach and to Airhop, among others!
Weekend Away: Annually we organise a camping trip away in the summer for the Hub where we chill out play games and listen to that one person that always brings a guitar…
We’ve got a full on amazing youth band at BBC!
The band have the opportunity to play in Sunday Services as well as special events throughout the year!
We’d love to see you join our band which meets on a Friday evening at 6 pm.
