Throughout the year we take our young people away to different residential camps. Some of these are run directly by SWYM whilst others are regional and national events. Our trips to Soul Survivor and Spree are great times of bonding and fun for the young people and everyone attending takes huge steps spiritually on their walk with God, even if it exhausts the leaders!
Back to TopDiscipleship
Our main discipleship groups meet on a Sunday night in the parish church. We have two groups, Jet for years 7 to 9 meets from 6.30 till 8 and Set for years 10-13 meets from 7.30 till 9. Each group follows its own discipleship program which includes games, discussions, prayer and Bible study. We also have regular social evening where both groups join together. As well as Jet and Set we offer any of our young people from year 9 or above the opportunity to be mentored by an adult within church. These relationships have been hugely fruitful and beneficial to both the young person and the mentor! We also do a monthly discipleship session for 14+ along with Chudleigh Baptist Church on a Sunday morning as well as a weekly Christian Union within Teign School.

We Love Chudleigh

We Love Chudleigh is an annual event for young people who want to serve the people of our town and show them unconditional love.  and takes place over two days during the Easter holiday.On the Wednesday everyone arrives at the Youth Centre with their sleeping bags for the sleepover. The event starts with a session about being servant-hearted led by our youth leader Maren. During this we discussed what we wanted to achieve over the two days and how we could show our love for all the people visiting and living in the town.After lunch we begin our outreach by offering to pay for people’s car parking and handing out free chocolates in the High Street. People were very positive in response, if a little surprised, but it was good to be able to talk to them about what we were doing. They were impressed by our We LoveChudleighT-shirts.The rest of the first day is spent baking a range of cakes and biscuits in the Youth Centre kitchen in preparation for the coffee morning the next day. Dinner was provided by Mothers’ Union and we were very grateful for the delicious cottage pie and crumble! We rounded off the evening by watching a film before settling to sleep.On Thursday morning after breakfast we set off to the Church to prepare for the free coffee morning. People were appreciative of our baking and there was a good turnout. After tidying up and having lunch, we started to plan our service for Sunday evening. This was an opportunity to share with the congregation all that we had been doing, and to thank them for their support.We look forward to the next “We Love Chudleigh”
