We are aware that teenagers are so often the lost generation in churches all around our nation. We recognize that building and investing in our youth is one of the most important aspects of our ministry here.

Our Groups

Our vision is to be a group with our eyes fixed on Jesus, seeking to grow deeper in our relationships with Him and be rooted in love for the gospel and each other. During our meetings we spend time in worship, read the Bible together and create space for ministry too. We also make sure we have shed loads of fun, laughter and games! If you’re in school years 7-13 do come and check us out.

There are always events coming up for each of our groups, and often events for everyone to get involved in. Keep an eye out for flyers and posters around church, or contact the Church Office for more information. 


In Summer 2022, we'll be heading to LUMINOSITY, New Wine's youth event, which is for 11-18 year olds and will run at the same time as the New Wine UNITED events in Peterborough. 


Throughout the year we organise various outings ranging from a trip to the beach to a BBQ at home. We’re always looking for new suggestions and ideas for socials so do get in touch if you’ve got a killer idea. Socials also provide a great opportunity for us to invite our friends along too! We’ll be in touch with any socials that are on the horizon, there may be a small cost.


At SMB we take the safety of our young people seriously – you can find out more about our Safeguarding Policy here.
