The Youth and Young Adults ministries at Westville Methodist Church are quite diverse in age and in activities. The Youth ministry centres mainly on a Friday evening session, and this is where the youth of our church gather together for a time of fellowship, learning and worshiping God.
Along with this Friday night ministry, we have a discipleship course known as Crossroads, after which many young people choose to be confirmed. (Please note that this is not a prerequisite for confirmation). Crossroads is a course that includes teachings on Moral Decision Making, the Trinity, Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit, and many others. The Crossroads course is run by a team of dedicated leaders, drawn mainly from the young adults, and also includes fun activities such as camps and the like.
We have a host of different bible study groups that meet, designed at meeting the needs of different age groups as well as personality types.
Other than this, the Youth and Young Adults ministries also include time for fellowship and fun, with many socials planned throughout the year. We are also involved in local outreaches, working alongside the Social Concerns Committee, getting involved where we are able. Outreach, care of those around us, is something that is encouraged amongst our young people.
