Young Adults

We are passionate about the Church being a shining beacon in communities and every child, young person and family having access to a vibrant, welcoming and worshipful church in their locality.

Young adults are an integral part of the church. They bring an ability to look beyond the horizon in leadership, a willingness to do things differently and very often an infectious joy of life.

It is important that 18-30s are welcomed and valued by the church.

University

Almost 80% of young adults who go to church before university drop their Christian faith in their time at Uni. Supporting young adults through this transition is important to help them maintain a deep, real and relevant faith. Student Link Up helps churches and students at this time.

Leadership

18-30s should be sought after to fill leadership positions in the church. Their voices should be heard and listened to. Taking the time to understand how 18-30s carry their faith in their daily lives away from church services and buildings helps to bring a sense of integrity and authenticity to our churches, demonstrating whole life discipleship and commitment from both older and younger generations. This understanding will develop a sense of trust in 18-30s as they take on leadership roles.

Creamfields

Creamfields is a large music festival which happens in the heart of Cheshire. During four days over the August bank holiday weekend 70,000 young adults will be dancing, partying and enjoying themselves. This year, we, the church, have been invited to be present during the four days, and we want to take the light and love of Jesus to Creamfields.

Street Pastors, Youth for Christ and other partners are coming together alongside Chester Diocese and Warrington churches to be present at Creamfields. These groups are going to have volunteer teams covering four strands. These strands are prayer, pastoral, evangelism and refreshment. We are expecting a team of at least 100 volunteers to help us make a real difference to Creamfields, supporting their Welfare and First Aid teams as well as giving delegates the opportunity for spiritual growth.
