Buckland Monachorum Youth Emmaus



If you are aged 11-16 we would love you to join us at any of the events!

For more info or to book in please contact Portia Crossley (portiacrossley@hotmail.com) who is our youth co-ordinator.

Youth Emmaus

Youth Emmaus meet at 10:30am during the morning service in the staff room of St Andrew’s School generally on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month.  It is lead by Reuben Crossley, Denise Nixon & Jane Oliver.  Youth Emmaus is a time to explore life, faith and God over gallons of hot chocolate and mountains of biscuits!

We will be restarting Youth Emmaus from October 2017 and will be using the second book in the Youth Emmaus series, which is about what the Sermon on the Mount means for us today as we seek to live for and with Christ.

We average 10 young people.  We play games, discuss faith, sing and pray. The group is 11+ and is open to all. You do not need to be a regular church-goer or confirmed.

The 3rd Sunday morning service in church has a more contemporary/youth flavour. We start with donuts, hot chocolate, tea and coffee whilst contemporary worship music plays.

This last summer, 17 of us went to Heatree House for the weekend. We had a wild time doing team roping and climbing challenges, getting neck deep in mud, kayaking and playing wide games.  There were great times of getting to know each other and drawing closer to God.

We also have a fabulous youth team at Parish Camp in July with trips to Woodlands, capture the flag on the beach at night, praying under the stars and much more!
