YPF is a friendly group for young people between the ages of 14 and 18 (school years 10-13).
We usually meet on Saturday nights at the church from 7:30pm to 10pm during normal school term times. Every third week we have a relaxed Friday evening drop in at the home of one of the leaders. We also go away as a group for the occasional weekend, and last year we spent a week together in Wales during the summer holidays. It was brilliant! Most weeks we run fun activities which can include, silly games and cooking and eating food. We also have talks, discussions and studies to try to understand the good news of the Bible and to see what that means for our everyday lives.
Most Sunday nights after the evening service, there is an opportunity for the YPF to get together informally at someone's house.
Welcome to the Big Weekend 2019 event page!
For those new to the Big Weekend, or have had such a jam packed year you’ve forgotten all that happened last February, the aim of our gathering is to be taught from God’s Word and share a time of fellowship, strengthening relationships and making new ones.
This year the theme of the weekend’s teaching is “Revolution”, speaking truth into a culture that is redefining sex, marriage, gender, and the very meaning of right and wrong. Our speakers Gareth Leaney, currently a secondary school teacher, previously a UCCF staff worker and then director of training at MOET, and Jamie Southcombe, minister in training at Grace Church Guildford, will be taking us through Biblical responses to the sexual revolution that is transforming our culture, and what the churches response should be. God willing this will be an encouraging time where we are reminded that Jesus calls us to what is better, and how we should best share the good news of the gospel with a culture that is rejecting Him.
Even with a jam-packed teaching programme, there will be the opportunity to share in times of fellowship - whether that be in the local village tea shop, a walk across the Kent countryside, or playing a game of table tennis!
The venue is the beautiful Otford Manor in Kent (home of Oak Hall holidays), costing the bargain price of £85 or, with an early bird discount, £80 if booked before the 8th December.
