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 11-18, we’d love for you to get involved.

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 week after school. We have milkshakes, popcorn, 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 weekend together with the best milkshake in Gateshead.

Fridays, 3-5pm, St. George’s Church

Awaken Groups

Groups are a great place to ask the big questions of life, eat food, worship, play games and spend time together.
It’s where we talk more about life, faith and what it looks like to build a life centred around the hope and love that Jesus brings to the table. Everyone is welcome to join in here.

Thursdays (Every other week), 6-7:30pm, St. George’s Church

Sundays

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.

Sunday Breakfast

For years 7-9, 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 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.

Holidays

During the spring and summer holidays we take the Awaken Youth Cafe to the park. We have bean bags, drinks, popcorn and a huge Cage to play football in.

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?!
