Awaken Youth is an exciting community of young people. We are passionate about Jesus and are dedicated to seeing young people grow up to know real hope and have confidence to pursue their dreams.

We create spaces where every young person can thrive. If you’re aged 10-18, we’d love for you to get involved.

Younger Youth – School Yrs 6-8

What does it look like to be part of Awaken Youth?

Midweek (Term time)

The Awaken Youth Cafe

This is a great place to meet up and finish off the day after school. We have milkshakes, cookies, music, games and space to just relax. What more could you want?

Everything at the Cafe is completely free. Come along, bring your friends and let’s start the evening together with the best milkshake in Gateshead.

We love the Awaken Youth Cafe! We’ve decided to change the day to make it even better. On Thursday 26th September, we’ll be running the cafe on Thursdays instead of Fridays and we can’t wait! 

We hope we’ll see you there!

The Awaken Youth Team

Younger Youth – Thursdays – 6-7:15pm

Older youth / Sixth form and college – Thursdays – 7:30-9pm

It’s all in the St. George’s Church Centre.


The Six

This is our evening gathering that happens each Sunday. It’s home to our older youth & student community. There’s time to connect and make friends, to worship together, pray for each other, and hear from the Bible. The lights are lower and the music is louder as we create space for us to encounter Jesus.

Awaken Younger Hope Group

For our Younger Youth, during our 10.30am morning gathering, we move over to the church centre to have breakfast together, play games and go through a topic from the bible.

Awaken Hope Groups

During term time we meet from 4.30-6pm to explore together what it means to follow Jesus. Awaken Hope Groups are based around food, fun and faith. We share a meal, play games and then look at the Bible and pray in age based groups as we look to grow in faith together. This is for all of Awaken Youth.

Awaken Youth Parties

We love to have fun and celebrate all that God is doing in our community, so we finish off each half term with a party at the Awaken Youth Cafe. We have different themes, live music, wide games and lots more.


We also take our young people to a youth festival each summer. Five days in a field with your friends and thousands of others! The very best worship, teaching and ministry – and of course, great company in the Awaken Youth Camp! What more could you want?!
