Here at South Chard Church we have a lively group of young people.
Our youth work is led by Helena Baker and her husband Matt.  Together they provide many opportunities for our young people to grow and develop and discover Jesus for themselves.
Meeting together on a Sunday morning gives our young people time to really explore God.  Using a mixture of different resources, ‘Ignite’ cover topics that really get to the heart of the Christian faith.  As part of their continued commitment to make a difference  the young people have taken part in car boot sales, cake sales, car washes and other creative ideas to raise funds to sponsor a child.  Their efforts have created mini adventures of their own!
  The best thing about ‘Ignite’ is that the young people don’t just spend an hour or so with each other on a Sunday. Alongside their leaders, they do life together. They have all been known to head to the beach after church, have lunch together, or hang out at a local café for hot chocolates and a chat.
 We partner with St John’s church, Tatworth to run ‘TCYC’, a local  youth club held in St John’s church hall.   Young people from ‘Ignite’ often attend the club where they participate in crafts, games, and cooking, loving the opportunity to socialise with other young people in the area. The club is also supported by a committed team of volunteer leaders from South Chard Church.  TCYC Carousel

In the summer holidays, ‘Ignite’ attend a Christian youth camp at Hill House Christian Centre, along with their leaders. Staying in tents and meeting other Christians their age, the week is jam packed with fun, fellowship and great teaching.

The young people have a real heart for God and an enthusiasm to give more. We are excited to see what the future holds for us as we explore God’s plans together.
