Young Adults


Reaching, encouraging and growing in faith together.

Young Adults at St Stephen’s

There is a thriving community of 20s and 30s at St Stephen’s meeting and getting involved at our contemporary service at 11.30.

We love to see people grow in their faith and be sent out into what God has for them next. We have recently seen two of our group accepted to train for ordained ministry in the Church of England and two others move to Naironu to continue scientific research and take a role as the musical director at Nairobi Cathedral.

Young Adults Worker

Adam Jackson has been in this role for five years. He is the founder of an annual Christian youth festival called Intents and an eco-building and traditional skills festival called the Treehouse Festival. Adam is passionate about building a community in which people can find support and grow in faith. 


What’s On?

Most, but not all, of the young adults at St Stephen’s choose to worship at the 11.30 service, which is a service using contemporary styles of worship with a longer time for the sermon and response.

There is a midweek small group in which the group meets to read the Bible together and share points for prayer.

There are lots of courses to be involved in, including Bible teaching courses, theology workshops and advice on budgeting. 

The annual House Party is a chance for the young adults to take a weekend away together to read Scripture, pray and have fun.

Getting Involved

There are loads of ways to get stuck in to life at St Stephen’s. If you are interested in being involved, contact Adam and he will help you take part.

Music                     You could be part of the worship team.

Sunday School      Helping lead activities for children during our Sunday services

The Chapel             The Church runs a series of outreach groups to the local community. You may lke to support an existing group or have an                                                             idea for a group of your own.

The Cafe                 The Cafe serves up to 800 people a week and caters for many people in need. You could volunteer here.

Love the Street       Every other Thursday a group goes out from St Stephen’s to offer prayer for healing.

Intents                     Adam is always on the lookout for people to be involved in his annual youth festival.

Digging Deeper

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.

11.30 Sunday 

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. 

Social Times

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.

Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
