Here at SML, we have a thriving and growing community of Young People which is supported by the wider SML Church Family. Here is an outline of our vision for the Youth Ministry, as well as some information about what we are doing to actively pursue it.
At SML we have a lively community of Young People, from 11 to 18. As such, we aim to provide opportunities for them to build their own groups and friendships within the safe spaces which are our wider youth groups. We as a team are here to accommodate this growth, and help to bring structure and opportunity to these flourishing friendships through what we offer as a Youth Ministry.
We as a team believe that our Young People have just as much to offer as anyone else, and we strive to help them achieve that potential through biblical teaching, as well as modelling the way of life that Jesus calls us to live.
