Millennials have been called the lost generation from church, as there are reportedly less young adults in church than any other age group.
There is however a thriving community of 20s and 30s at St Stephens meeting and getting involved at our contemporary service at 11.30.
As well as Bible study with Freddy Hedley at Digging Deeper, worship at 11.30 various social events and monthly mingling opportunities such as Games Night and Norwich Inventors Club (Arduino Night!)
Though the church welcomes students, there are many places for Students to worship around the city and we find ourselves rubbing shoulders with young professionals who live and work in the city.
Digging deeper is the fortnightly Bible study with Freddy Hedley, from Westminster Theological College. Digging deeper is inspiring and accessible and covers a lot of the material taught in the degree level course that is run in the East Anglia WTC hub in Ashill.
Digging deeper is open to everyone who wants to dig deeper into the world and unpack some of the difficult questions. The cost is £50.
Though for all ages, our 11.30 contemporary service has a significant community of young adults. In this we try and give opportunities to serve, grow and build each other up.
Something Adam loves doing is organising social events. So anything from a visit to the Sea Life Centre, going out for milkshakes and even going Paintballing.
The purpose of this is just to spend time together and make friends, invite people along and build community.
