Our youth department
Our aim at Elevate is to show as many 11 to 18 year olds as we can that they were created by a big God who wants them to live an amazing life, full of potential, love and hope. We don’t believe that God created young people to just fit in with the norms of society and bow to peer pressure but instead to step outside the box and begin to live the amazing life that God has set out for them.
At Elevate we encourage everyone we come across to live life as loud as they can. Not just by what they say, but also by how they act, believing that together we can make a difference in our world and point people towards the life changing power of Jesus.
We run many different events for young people aged 11 to 18 years. Whether you’re a Christian, or wanting to know more about God or just looking to have fun, then Elevate has something for you. Why not have a look at our regular events and come and join us.
