POW (People of the Word) is all about two things:
1: People! This is about spending time together: having fun, playing games, getting to know each other, and…
2: The Word: It’s about looking at the Bible together, exploring what it has to say and getting to know its stories and characters, remembering that this isn’t just any old book, but God’s living word.

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.”

“POW is an amazing group that you come to at the end of the week to see amazing friends and learn about our amazing God!”
“POW is a good way to make new friends while learning more about God in a safe, welcoming environment.”
“You should come to POW because you make friends, have fun and learn about the Bible in an active and friendly way. #GotoPOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

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.

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!
