Youth & Young Adults

We have a lively and diverse Youth & Young Adults Ministry at GWUC we try to create ways to engage in the exploration, study, worship and action of Faith within our local and wider communities.

Our hopes are to make faith accessible & relevant in todays youth & young adult culture – experiential, interactive, creative and relationally based.

To teach about Jesus in a hands on approach -mission and discipleship.
To be missional not just attractional – go to meet youth & young people where they are.
