On Saturday 16th September local youth groups and young Christians from 17 different churches got together at St Paul’s Church, Warwick for Base, our BBQ & worship evening. It was amazing to have young people gathered from Leamington, Warwick, Coventry and wider the wider area. There was a fantastic buzz and a great atmosphere as God’s people got together, united in faith and friendship. Everyone arrived at the beautiful church grounds where they were greeted and directed by volunteers in our brand-new high visibility Thrive jackets! It was good to welcome each person, as they arrived, whe ..read more

The Thrive Puppet Team started in the summer of 2021. When it was set up, we were searching for young people to come and join the team from various churches and backgrounds. Our aim was to reach young people that were perhaps struggling in some way either with mental health or had just found lockdown challenging and maybe needed something new to help build them up, teach them new skills and encourage them. Fiona Stutton, Thrive’s Children’s Ministry Adviser said, “It’s a real privilege to be working with such a great team of young people, training them up in new skills, helping to make a diffe ..read more

It was great to see lots of children come together, from all over our area, to connect and worship God. There were 67 children, 19 young leaders (teenagers), and 32 leaders coming from across 14 churches. As people entered the event, they gathered in their church groups, aided by large signs so they knew where to sit. The afternoon began with games which went down a storm! The event was organised by Thrive’s Children’s Ministry Adviser, Fiona Stutton, who said: “My ultimate highlight of Thrive Juniors was seeing so many leaders from a great number of our local churches commit to bringing thei ..read more

After three long years of not being able to gather it was brilliant to be able to be together again in person. Youth leaders from 12 different churches bought over 90 young people together with the intention of investing time in their youth group. The weekend started with the Thrive team organising games on the Friday night to get everyone mixing and breaking the ice! It set a good atmosphere for the weekend – that it was about young people having fun together, finding out about faith and cheering each other on, with support from their youth leaders. Feedback from one of the youth leaders, Liz ..read more

Our Youth Mission Enablers, James and Ryan, joined the Thrive staff team in September’21. Since that time, we have been purposefully trying to get alongside churches across the area to help them start new initiatives to connect and reach young people in their community. Fiona, our Children’s Ministry Adviser, has been doing this in regard to primary school aged children, as well as helping churches to launch new Messy Church events. 2022 was definitely a very busy year for the team but are we making a difference to the churches we serve and, most importantly, the children and young people that ..read more

We had our annual one-day training conference, which was attended by over 30 children’s and youth leaders from the local area who met and gathered from 14 different churches. It was great to see the churches raring with a readiness to train and further equip themselves in their ministries. The programme consisted of workshops, mingling, and teaching, looking at Paul’s leadership in Philippians and how we can model ourselves on Christ’s virtues and leadership. Everything was centred around the Lord and ways in which we can keep our focus upon him whilst at the same time also leading others to h ..read more

On Saturday 17th September many young people and youth leaders from at least 12 different churches in the local area gathered for the evening at Saltisford Church in Warwick for a social and spiritual time. Some young people bravely came by themselves, met, and chatted with other likeminded Christians their own age. Whilst other young people who had been to Thrive events before came and reconnected with friends and familiar faces. It was so lovely to see Christians coming together in unity and making new church connections from different youth groups and churches. It was great to see such a wi ..read more

Back in June we had the opportunity to gather together with youth and children’s workers for some ‘Breathing Space’. 19 youth, childrens and family workers took time out of their busy schedules to spend time together and with God.  After a long time of not being able to meet in person, we were finally able to gather to pray together, to worship together, share experiences, and catch up over food.  We started off with an ice breaker, so we could get to know each other a bit better. There was a buzz in the room and lots of laughter. Everyone had a chance to share about how youth and c ..read more

One of the challenges in starting a youth ministry is engaging with young people and young people who are not part of the church family. Scripture Union has a statistic that 95% of young people have no contact with the Church. So how do we introduce young people to the church and more importantly Jesus? And the church to young people? If you don’t know where to start with your youth ministry, it is good to see if there are easy wins and simple ideas which will start building relationships between Christians and the young people of the area. A simple idea is to engage with the young people who ..read more
