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.

What does it look like to be part of Awaken Youth?
Midweek (Term time)
Awaken Thursdays is our place for youth. It’s a place to make friends, have fun together, talk about life and faith and allow young people to work out what they believe for themselves.
Awaken Y6-Y8 happens from 6.00-7.20pm
Awaken Y9-Y13 happens from 7.30-9.00pm
The evening looks like:
Welcome and Games // Chance to chat about life, faith and what it’s all about // Cafe // Games, Workshops and other great activities
It’s all in the St. George’s Church Centre.
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.
Awaken Youth Weekend Away
The whole Awaken Youth community are invited to our weekend away. It’s a weekend full of food, fun and faith. We’ll play sports, explore what following Jesus is all about, play our favourite Awaken games and share meals together.
We’re going Friday 6th – Sunday 8th of March to an outdoors centre in the Lake District. For more information and the consent and bursary forms collect a pack from a member of the Youth Team.
You can also sponsor a place here.
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?!
