Teenagers are challenged in their faith by rival activities and by the transition they need to make from a child’s faith to an adult’s. Many young people fall away at this stage and don’t allow themselves the opportunity of discovering what faith can offer.



Amare is a youth-led Catholic social group for ages 16-20 (non-Catholics are welcome!). Free snacks provided. Meets every Sunday to socialise, play games and chat from 6.30pm-8.30pm in Compass House, Worth Abbey. Every other week we invite a guest speaker to come and present a short talk. Please email amareworthyouth@gmail.com if you are interested, fill in the sign-up sheet, or speak to Sophie Chapman in person!

theAscent is a three-year discipleship process involving three residential weekends a year, monthly mentoring and weekly online group sessions. It is designed for young people years 10-11 and is designed to take people with a real interest in their faith, helping them to make a deeper commitment and to explore who God created them to be, at the same time as making new friends and having some fun.

Youth SVP is a Christian organisation for young people who want to put their faith into action and make a real difference in their local community.  With an effective formula of “See, Think, Do,” groups of Youth SVP members ages 11 to 14 meet in schools and parishes across England and Wales to discuss how to support people in need around them.

Youth 2000 seeks to draw young people into a personal relationship with Jesus, lived at the heart of the Catholic Church. It does this primarily through weekend prayer festivals.
