Who We Are


Welcome to Awaken Youth, we are extremely pleased that you have dropped by.

Here at Awaken Youth, we have a heart to both serve young people and their families, as well as seeing the young people being transformed by the unconditional love of Jesus; and seeing them, within God’s plan and purpose, transform the world around them.

We want to see young people grow into strong, confident and transformed individuals that know and have experienced the personal and living God through Jesus. We want young people to know that they are important to us here and that we are here for them.

So, if you’re 11-18 years old and you want to know more about Jesus, you can find a multicultural and diverse youth community here at Awaken Youth! We love to support each other as we journey closer to God, see our passion for Jesus ignited and telling others about the hope we have in Him!

Connect with us



This is our main time to hang out, laugh, have fun, eat sweets, play games, pray, have teaching from the Bible and discuss how we apply this to our lives. We meet in The Hub during term time.



This is our time to gather in the Upstairs Youth Room, explore the Bible, our faith and church life to see how we can actively engage and grow as transformed individuals in our world.



During the year, we offer a full range of activities in Awaken Youth as well as opportunities to go to events with other youth groups and churches. This includes Limitless Festival in August, Limitless One in February and STIR Gathering in Telford.
