Impact Youth Ministry exist to share the way of Jesus with our friends and family, to show them His love and to grow passionate followers of God who seek to worship Him with their whole lives.
For those I have not met before, let me introduce myself. My name is Simon Tulett and I will be the youth minister whilst Fiona is on maternity leave. This isn’t the first time I’ve been able to call Christ Church my home. I was a youth and children’s intern here at Christ Church back in 2012 and then stayed on as Fiona’s youth ministry assistant, leaving just over a year ago in the summer of 2014. It genuinely broke my heart to leave this place that summer and being given the opportunity to return here is one the best gifts God has given me.
This week marks the start of our Christmas celebrations in the Youth Ministry, where we begin to close off term celebrating the fun communities that we have here. Over the next two weeks there is going to be lots of games, lots of food, and there’s even rumours of a bouncy castle making an appearance at Going Deeper this week!
I’ll be in touch over Christmas and the new year with plans and dates for the following term. Have a great week, and if there is anything we as a team can pray about for you or the family, don’t hesitate to send me an email.

This week we are having our Christmas part at Rock Solid. We are going to be playing some classic Christmassy games. Christmas jumpers are welcome!
Rock Solid normally meet Sunday mornings during the 10.30 service. Rock Solid is designed to be fun, to nurture friendships and to help young people own their faith and grow in it.
Christmas with a Twist – Sunday 13th of December
Instead of our usual evening service this week at Christ Church. It is the annual ‘Christmas with a twist’ service. This will be a relaxed and friendly service with joy and celebration as a theme. It is designed to be an easy service for those who have perhaps never been to church before, so this could be a great chance to bring a friend along with you.
Where: Christ Church
When: Service starts at 6.30 pm. Cafe Fusion is after the evening service, 7.45 – 8.45.
This is a great place to catch up with each other before you start the week.
