Jump Youth Group

Our Parish Youth group "JUMP" (Jesus Use My Potential) gives young people the opportunity to meet fortnightly during term time to enjoy fun games, bible discussion and outings. Additionally once a year JUMP enjoy a weekend away in the Lake District.

In addition to joining "JUMP" our young people are valuable members of church involved in communion, operating the sound desk, helping with Children's Church, 4th Sunday and Messy Church.

Check our welcome sheet for details or print off the  Jump Programme and pin it to your family noticeboard.

Spring 2019

Over this term we continued the film series looking at what it means to be a Christian which initiated great discussion and times of reflection.

The highlight of the term was our weekend away to St Johns in the Vale at the end of April this was a great weekend which 6 of our younger JUMPers attended (our older JUMPers were studying hard for exams but we thought about them a lot during our activities). Over the weekend we focused on "The Bible" including looking at how the Old Testament and New Testament link through various activities from our "Video Challenge" to treasure hunts to Pizza making amongst many other activities. A great time had by all.

 

Lots of photos and video to follow soon.... Check back as they will be live soon.

 

 

Autumn 2018

We started our term with a great evening with Canon Andrew White "The vicar of Baghdad" it was great to hear of the work Canon White has undertaken as part of the only Anglican church in Iraq. Canon White also spoke at the morning Service which can be watched here.

This led into a film series we used to study some questions about our faith including:

Jesus Fact or Fiction?
What was Jesus really like?
How can you say that God is good?
Has the Church caused more harm than good?

We are continuing this film series in our Spring 2019 programme.

We also had a great "Question time evening" with the Cumbria Police Commissioner Peter McCall where we asked questions about how his Christian Faith and job align.

 

 

 

Spring Summer 2018

Spring and Summer Term involved a lot of being outside, we were blessed with amazing weather, where better to be thinking about our faith than outside.

During Spring we had some great evenings studying bible passages together with evening titles including:

Total turn around! Acts 9

A stormy ride! Acts 27

‘Are they drunk?!’ exploring Pentecost Acts 2 

‘Walking with a Stranger’ Luke 24 

‘Empowered’ Various Acts 

We finished our term with a great evening out at Crummock Water having a BBQ together and reflecting on the "picnic on the beach- Breakfast with Jesus" where great fun was had as well as reflecting on the told in John 21.

Water Sport Day

In June 2018 JUMP had a great day on Ennerdale doing a variety of Water Sports with other Church Youth Groups from around West Cumbria.

By the end of the day everyone had fallen in to the lake but everyone had beaming smiles.

In the evening after a BBQ, a small service was held around a fire.

 Visit by Swedish Bible School Students.

In Mid April 2018 we enjoyed a great evening with visitors from Sweden's Word of Life Bible College based in Upsala.

The students led a very moving evening of worship, testimony and prayer.

In February JUMP had a great weekend at Rydal Hall where much fun, fellowship and food was shared.

We had great weather and as you can see it really was an amazing time.

Please take a look at the videos we made during our weekend.

Autumn and Winter of 2017-2018

During the Autumn and Winter most JUMP sessions were held indoors based on the cold dark evenings, we still had great fun including a night bowling, an evening thinking about remembrance day and many evenings involving acting or games of some form.

 

 Three of our members head off to University July 2017

At the end of July we enjoyed a great evening led by three of our older members of JUMP who headed off to university in September.

 

JUMP outing with Wonder Network Youth Church to Ennerdale  

A great day was had in June around Ennerdale including canoeing on the lake, archery, team challenges and sharing in Worship.

 

 
Christian Aid Evening

As part of Christian Aid Week's 60th anniversary, we had a powerful evening learning about refugees and playing a board game where we had different situations and challenges to face as refugees trying to get to a safe place.

A great evening learning about Christian Aid and the work they undertake.
