Friday Impact is Eden’s youth group for young people in years 7-9. We meet 8-9.30pm on Fridays during school term, usually in the back hall at Eden (entrance on Fair Street). We do lots of fun social activities and games, and we also spend some time each week looking at what God has to say to us through the Bible.
The group has a great mix of young people from Eden and others, such as their friends, who have been invited along. All young people of the right age are welcome, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been at church all your life or never before. We’d love to get to know you and have fun together.
Regular activities include chill out nights (table tennis, snooker, wii, board/card games), crafts, unihoc and other active games. Annual events include a trip to London in May, punting in July and a weekend away with GAP (the 14-18s group) in Norfolk in October. Other activities we’ve done recently include water games, team challenges and wide games on Midsummer Common.
As well as enjoying fun activities, we enjoy learning from God’s Word together. This term (autumn 2016) we are looking at the book of Exodus to see how God rescued his people so that he could have a relationship with them. We’ll be thinking about how he loves to do the same for us today.

Years 7-9 also meet on Sundays during Eden’s Sunday morning service (school term-time only). We join with the rest of the church at 10am for the first half of the service and then gather in the concourse at the back of the auditorium during the break in the service. We walk together to a room in the Grafton Centre for our study, returning together at the end of the service. We always enjoy welcoming new people!
This term we are spending time thinking about the book of Ruth.
Impact and GAP together
Sunday Impact also meets together with GAP (our 14-18s group) once a month on a Sunday evening after the evening service. We have dinner together and spend a bit of time thinking about the sermon we’ve just heard or another topic relevant to young people. We normally meet on the second Sunday of the month - see the termcard or the website calendar for dates for this term. The service begins at 6pm and we aim to be finished meeting by 8.45pm.
