Welcome to Sky 1! (Who are we?)

You might have seen a few teenagers around church, you might have heard about Soul Survivor and the amazing things Jesus has been doing there, you may have been asked to pray for Sky One, but who are they and what do they do?

On a Friday night, we meet in church. There’s table football, bean bags, table tennis and the odd game of Capture the Flag, 40:40 In and that old time classic: gargling without spitting water over everyone when you laugh. We drink hot chocolate (often with marshmallows) and eat cakes and biscuits. Sometimes it’s a film night, sometimes we have a Bible study. Usually there’s a theme. This term we are doing ‘Inspirational figures from the Bible’. Sky Plus (the older lot) meet up for their own events as well like casual dinners with Cath and Dave and more intense/specific Bible studies. We pray for each other and for people we know. Then there’s the Christmas party. Every year Amy is persuaded out of her amazing fancy dress ideas (pirates, etc) in favour of a more glamorous theme which allows for some ‘fancy’ fancy dress… we’ve had a black and gold and a 007 theme. It’s really an amazing group of local young people from years 7-13 who encourage each other and enjoy each other’s company, meeting up and talking about Jesus.
These young people, they’re full of ideas: working for charities and going on mission trips, leading worship and writing their own music, helping others and making an impact in their friendship groups and schools. So, please continue to pray for them to be built up in their faith and if you see a random teenager around, say hello!
We aim to be a group which encourages, teaches and accepts young people. We want to see the Holy Spirit do more to transform our lives, where we live… and beyond! If you are in Years 7 to 13, come along!
7 – 8.30pm, St Katharine’s church.
