Youth work: all sorts of cool stuff for the high school age

 

 
Grid

The world opens up in a new way at high school and this group navigates that change, exploring issues of all kinds at all levels – personal, local and global – and where God is within them. And if all that sounds rather serious, we do this by creating stuff, playing games and having fun, as well as being a great place to talk.

Ark construction

 

Noah's Ark Rose Queen float

Does this float your boat?

Grid builds things too! Most years we design and build a float for the Rose Queen festival. Above is the ark we constructed out of (mostly!) cardboard tubes. Then there are the street party and Christmas activities, and various end of term celebrations like bowling and parties. Grid runs in six week blocks during term-time, on Sundays 7.30–9.00pm at St Peter's Rooms. If you’re in years 7–12, just drop in, or contact Andrea (details in blue box below right)

Some members of Grid

Girls' Choir

Girls' choir

Join the girls’ choir and you won’t just sing glorious church music, you’ll be part of a thriving group that enjoys social activities and just hanging out. And you’ll get to explore other music as well – the picture below left was taken as the girls entertained a church group with a popular medley of group and individual songs and instrumentals.

Girls' concert performance

 

Girls' Choir musicians

We’re a mix of sopranos and altos who sing two-part music for regular worship, and each year we visit one of the nation’s cathedrals to sing for some of their summer services. Recent trips have included Gloucester, Durham and Carlisle. Girls normally join in year 7 and continue until they’ve finished their A-levels.
If you love to sing, come and see. We welcome new members – each year brings new talent and energy!

Often the best way to see what a group might be like is to give it a try. We practice most Thursdays from 6.45pm–8.00pm at  St Peter's Church, Prestbury.

Weekends Away
Building a tetrahedron
Eighteen young people (between 8 and 13) and a team of four adults had such a fabulous weekend away together that we’re definitely planning to do it again! We defeated gravity on the climbing wall, built a tetrahedron (left) and learned how ‘to put on the armour of God’ as Paul calls it, which involved building our own armour – from scratch. Quite a challenge!

Play, make & bake 

Climbing wall

We made stuff, played stuff, and chilled. We piled up on cushions to watch a movie with popcorn and home- made cake, and we sat round a campfire in our onesies and ate melted marshmallows squished between two chocolate digestives. It was quite an adventure bringing such a group together, but we all got on! It seems it worked for them as much as it did for us - and we had a ball!
