We are committed to raising a generation of youths that have a strong Biblical foundation for life in Christ. Teaching and preaching of God’s Word and Bible life groups aim to equip young people to live as a redeemed community that is lead by God. Programs include fun activities, praise and worship and networking to allow new friendships to form.
1 “Surely there is a mine for silver,
and a place for gold that they refine.
2 Iron is taken out of the earth,
and copper is smelted from the ore.
3 Man puts an end to darkness
and searches out to the farthest limit
the ore in gloom and deep darkness.
4 He opens shafts in a valley away from where anyone lives;
they are forgotten by travellers;
they hang in the air, far away from mankind; they swing to and fro.
5 As for the earth, out of it comes bread,
but underneath it is turned up as by fire.
6 Its stones are the place of sapphires,[a]
and it has dust of gold.
7 “That path no bird of prey knows,
and the falcon’s eye has not seen it.
8 The proud beasts have not trodden it;
the lion has not passed over it.
9 “Man puts his hand to the flinty rock
and overturns mountains by the roots.
10 He cuts out channels in the rocks,
and his eye sees every precious thing.
11 He dams up the streams so that they do not trickle,
and the thing that is hidden he brings out to light.
12 “But where shall wisdom be found?
And where is the place of understanding?
13 Man does not know its worth,
and it is not found in the land of the living.
14 The deep says, ‘It is not in me’,
and the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’
15 It cannot be bought for gold,
and silver cannot be weighed as its price.
16 It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir,
in precious onyx or sapphire.
17 Gold and glass cannot equal it,
nor can it be exchanged for jewels of fine gold.
18 No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal;
the price of wisdom is above pearls.
19 The topaz of Ethiopia cannot equal it,
nor can it be valued in pure gold.
20 “From where, then, does wisdom come?
And where is the place of understanding?
21 It is hidden from the eyes of all living
and concealed from the birds of the air.
22 Abaddon and Death say,
‘We have heard a rumour of it with our ears.’
23 “God understands the way to it,
and he knows its place.
24 For he looks to the ends of the earth
and sees everything under the heavens.
25 When he gave to the wind its weight
and apportioned the waters by measure,
26 when he made a decree for the rain
and a way for the lightning of the thunder,
27 then he saw it and declared it;
he established it, and searched it out.
28 And he said to man,
‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
and to turn away from evil is understanding.’”
Please provide yours and your child’s contact details
What will we use the information for?
At Lumination (The name of our Youth Ministry), we are trying to make teens a safe and exciting place filled with many awesome activities. However, communicating with both parents and teens can be a struggle for various reasons. In light of this, we’d like to ask you to provide us with both the contact details of yourself and your child.
By doing this you will help us with:
Safety: If something happens to a teenager, we need to be able to contact parents
Keeping you informed: By being able to text and email both you and your child about what’s going on, we can have greater assurance that key communication will not be lost. I.e. In circumstances where your kid misses a Sunday/Friday where we announce a new event, or your kid forgets to tell you what’s happening.
Having all you need to know in one place: We will be adding these details to a Whatsapp Group that only administrators can message from. This group will contain all the details on events, any indemnity forms, term plans, etc.
The Whatsapp group will be created on a separate phone with its own sim card. This means that if you only want to provide your child’s mobile number and not their name, you can do so. We do however suggest that you give your name and number so that we can contact you should any issue arise.
NB: You don’t need to fill in everything…
The form below is divided into 5 sections: 2 parent or guardian and 3 teenager sections. You only need to fill in 1 parents details and the details of how ever many teenagers you look after. If you feel both you and another parent need to know what is happening with your child, please then use the section for the 2nd parent or guardian as well.
“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
C. S. Lewis
If you’re not part of a life group, you should be. Christians are not saved to live alone, we’re saved into a family (Ephesians 1:1 – 14). Why not sign up to a life group?
