Who is POW for? POW is for anyone in the High School age bracket.
This is what a few of our regulars had to say about POW:
“We learn the Bible the fun way whilst playing games and making movies. It’s really fun.”
So if you’re a secondary school attender, want to have some fun with a group of people your age and learn more about God’s word – POW might just be the thing for you.
For anyone in school years 7-13
Venue: The main church building
Time: 7.30 – 9.00pm, during term-times
POW Fridays is our dedicated weekly youth group meeting at GBC. We meet together and alternate fortnightly between social nights and teaching nights – one week will be just games and activities, the next will be a Bible study or youth talk, then back to games the next week and so on… We are currently going through a series called ‘Covenant – The Incredible Story of God’s Patience, Love and Faithfulness across the Ages’ on our teaching nights. All are welcome to join.
POW Fridays is a great opportunity for anyone in secondary school to come and spend time hanging out with other young Christians who are eager to spend time together and grow in their knowledge of the Bible. We share our lives, get to know the Bible better, and have a lot of fun!
For anyone in school years 7-8
Venue: The Church Hall
Time: 9.30-10.15am, during term-times
POW, or “People of the Word” to give it its full title, is an opportunity for anyone in school years 7-8 to meet together and look at God’s word before the Sunday morning service. We play a few short games, enjoy a breakfasty treat, and think a little about the passage for the upcoming sermon, identifying key messages and challenging themes.
For anyone in school years 9-13
Venue: The Upper Room
Time: c.7.30-8.30pm, after the evening service, during term-times
POW Lates is for anyone in school years 9-13. We meet together after the evening service to chat about what we’ve heard in the evening sermon or anything else related to the Christian life, in an informal setting. We also play games and sometimes enjoy some food!
For anyone is school years 7-13: contact church office if not already involved in POW.
Contagious camps are a big part of our year as a youth group.
But, this has been cancelled in 2021 as well as in 2020.
However, watch this space for GBC’s own POW Reset event over the same August week.
